Product Description:

Still hand-formulated in Florence, this remarkably light and fresh scent combines the provocative citrus and bergamot with subtle white flowers and deeply exotic spices. Coveted by men and women alike, this unique aroma is both timeless and modern. This is the legendary cologne created for Catherine de Medici, who brought her personal perfume-maker with her when she went to France to marry Henry II. How the “Acqua della Regina” (Water of the Queen) came to be commercialized as a cologne is a legend of various versions, but one thing is certain: Santa Maria Novella Cologne is one of history's great fragrances.

About Santa Maria Novella:

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. However, it wasn't until 1612 that the pharmacy gained an international status, opening to the public with the sponsorship of the Grand Duke of Tuscany.

 

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 pomegranate 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 testing on animals and using local ingredients whenever possible. Carefully handmade according to age-old recipes and artisanal methods, the preparations maintain a spirit of historical elegance.
