THE ANCIENT PREPARATIONS
Products with preparations based on essential principles of aromatic plants.
These distillates were stored in glass vials or copper containers, ready to be quickly sold to customers equipped with "pitchers" for decanting, a custom that remained in use until the end of the 19th century.
ACQUA DELLA REGINA
For the wedding that would crown her Queen of France, Caterina commissioned a special essence. Acqua della Regina is a tribute to that gift. The year was 1533, and this is when it all began.
Acqua della Regina
On the 800th anniversary of its birth, the Officina Profumo-Farmaceutica di Santa Maria Novella has created the Firenze 1221 Edition. A celebratory tribute to an unparalleled history, closely tied to the city in which it was founded. A royal tale, a homage to the gift that Caterina de' Medici brought to Henry II of Valois, the future King of France, in 1533.
Acqua della Regina, or Acqua di S.M. Novella, is the oldest fragrance of the Officina Profumo-Farmaceutica di Santa Maria Novella. It has a fresh and citrusy bouquet.
