Officina Profumo-Farmaceutica di Santa Maria Novella sets its roots back to 1221. Founded as a Dominican friars conventum, it is considered today the oldest pharmacy in the world, which carries its activities in the very places where they all began. Its apothecary art legacy crosses eight centuries and is deeply intertwined with Florence history, personalities and social tissue, in a continuously-renewed alchemy of tales and wonders. Today’s Officina is famous all over the world for its perfumes, candles, and “traditional preparations”.
An absolute novelty of the Firenze 1221 Editions, Acqua della Regina wax tablets will make their way into drawers, wardrobes and linen with the royalty of an exquisite artifact, still cast and refined by hand today. With orange and lavender petals, they infuse an aroma of ancient vivacity and wisdom, recalling the gift that Caterina brought to the Prince of Valois.
