One of the world’s oldest pharmacies, Santa Maria Novella was founded in 1221 in Florence by the Dominican Friars who started making herbal remedies and potions to use in the monastery. Their reputation became world renowned and the pharmacy, sponsored by the Grand Duke of Tuscany, opened to the public in 1612. Today, Santa Maria Novella still produces all its products in the Florentine region, where each batch is handmade and supervised according to age old recipes and artisan methods.
Santa Maria Novella’s Fresia fragrance is a very delicate scent, drawing its inspiration from the scent of its namesake flowers. Native to South Africa, where fresias grace many gardens. In flower symbolism, it is associated with mystery and fascination with the unknown. One of the eight iconic fragrances that are Santa Maria Novella's Firenze 1221 Collection.
