  • Acqua di S.M.Novella is Officina Profumo Farmaceutica di Santa Maria Novella’s oldest fragrance. It is the perfume that Caterina de’ Medici commissioned the Dominican monks to create in 1533, and she took it with her to France when she married Enrico di Valois. For this reason this fragrance is identified as a perfume rather than with a cologne. It is a bouquet of fresh citrus notes with a base of Calabrian bergamot. 100ml - 3.3 FL.OZ.
  • Tabacco toscano fragrance takes its inspiration from the famous Tuscan cigar made by Manifattura di Lucca. It is a bouquet of woody oriental notes that blend well with smoky vanilla base notes. Catherine de’ Medici Queen of France used tobacco as a remedy for migraines. In fact the plant became known as “Herba catharinaria”. 100ml - 3.3 FL.OZ. 
  • Rosa fragrance is a bouquet of floral notes evoking the characteristic scent of the queen of perfumery, Rosa centifolia, or May rose. The rose has a long history, dating back to the Sumerians. It is mentioned in the Iliad. In 5th century BC China rose essence was used exclusively by the emperor and the nobility at court.
  • Russa fragrance is a bouquet of fresh aromatic citrus notes. Russian cologne was quite a popular fragrance in the early 1800s and each perfumer added a personal touch to his own version. The Santa Maria Novella monks created their own formulation, with citrus top notes and spicy floral middle notes. 100ml - 3.3 FL.OZ.
