Santa Maria Novella - Gelsomino Eau de Parfum


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.

A deep expertise in crafting and combining fragrance notes yields the new Eau de Parfum collection. It reflects the history of Santa Maria Novella and also writes a new chapter in their unique heritage. Gelsomino is inspired by the special Goan jasmine that was treasured and cultivated in a tropical greenhouse by Cosimo III de’Medici. The experience begins with citrus and pink pepper, with sambac jasmine absolute, geranium and ylang-ylang unfolding. Finally, the greenhouse opens entirely with cedar wood and musk.

Top notes: bergamot, tangerine, pink pepper. Middle: jasmine sambac, geranium, ylang-ylang. Base: cedarwood, musk.

50ml / 1.7 oz. Spray dispenser.
