The fragrance of Florence: intoxicating traditions

Masterclass to create a custom fragrance in one of Tuscany's oldest workshops

Let yourself be enchanted by the ancient and intoxicating fragrance of Florence, the home of perfume. During the Renaissance, the distillation of flowers and the use of essential oils played an increasingly important role among nobles and wealthy merchants, and the personal perfume created for Catherine de' Medici became popular throughout France and the world. Visit the Antica Spezieria ed Erboristeria San Simone to step back in time and breathe in the atmosphere of the ancient alchemists and apothecaries. Become an apprentice for a day, selecting specific scents and ingredients to design your own unique, custom home fragrance in the workshop. A multi-sensory experience to create an unforgettable olfactory memory.
