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.
This lovely candle is scented with Santa Maria Novella's rose fragrance, a mixed bouquet of floral notes with prominent rose note. Always light and fresh, never overpowering, even on a warm summer evening. Manufactured in the Via Reginaldo Giuliani facility in Florence with high quality raw materials. The SMN logo on each candle is hand painted with gold.
