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”.
Officina Profuno-Farmaceutica di Santa Maria Novella's Fresia fragrance is a very delicate scent. It takes its inspiration from the scent of fresia flowers, native to South Africa where fresias grace many gardens with their beautiful, fragrant flowers. In flower symbolism it is associated with mystery and fascination with the unknown.
