Once Upon a Time

Once Upon a Time

The brand name is inspired by the most powerful of feelings, the love of our children. The company was founded in 1950 in Milan, the Italian capital of art and fashion, and the founders created the name Flormar by combining the names of their two daughters, Floridita and Maria.

We then moved the company to Istanbul, a dynamic city celebrating the link between Asia and Europe. At first, the initial products developed were only nail polishes. 

Living the constantly changing life of Istanbul helped Flormar evolve, making us the dynamic makeup brand we are today.
