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. Magnolia is a tribute to the Magnolia Grandiflora, the beloved flowering evergreen tree that arrived in Florence in the 18th century and was soon grown in the Medici's family possessions. The fragrance combines complex, multi-layered florals with a grounding base of amber and musk.
Top notes: white rose accord, geranium. Middle: magnolia grandiflora, magnolia champaca, jasmine sambac. Base: amber, musk.
