First founded in 1221 in Florence by Dominican friars creating herbal remedies to use in their monastery, Officinia Profumo Farmaceutica de Santa Maria Novella is one of the world's oldest standing pharmacies. Santa Maria Novella specializes in luxury bath and body products, as well as divine colognes still true to their centuries-old formulations. Some of their most sought-after creations include rich hand and foot creams, aromatic potpourri (still fermented in terracotta jars as it was 800 years ago!), and fragrant bath soaps. Not to mention their fragrances, which have a cult following of their own! The products are still made on-site at their own factory in Florence, Italy, never tested on animals, and made using local ingredients whenever possible. Carefully handmade according to age-old recipes and artisanal methods, the preparations maintain a spirit of historical elegance.
Scent Your Home Like Royalty
An absolute novelty of the Firenze 1221 Editions, Acqua della Regina wax tablets will make their way into drawers, wardrobes and linens with the royalty of an exquisite artifact, still cast and refined by hand today. With orange slices and lavender petals, they infuse an aroma of ancient vivacity and wisdom, recalling the gift that Caterina brought to the Prince of Valois.
The box contains two hand-made scented wax tablets, inspired by the Acqua della Regina Cologne fragrance and its notes of citrus fruits, neroli and musk.
Add a pleasant touch of fragrance to wardrobes, drawers and household linen. Store in a cool, dry place, away from light and any source of heat, and avoid direct contact with fabrics.
