Precious little shop, very special and historic. I took a perfume workshop here and they have the top quality essential oils, extracts and fragrances for you to make your own perfume. It was established in 1700. Dr Fernanada Russo, the master perfumer, is extremely knowledgeable and passionate about the art of making perfume. It is also very reasonably priced - basically for the same price of a bottle of perfume I took the workshop and made my own perfume, and walked away with a bottle of 50ml.
This little perfumery and herbalist shop is a treasure trove! If you are looking for a unique gift or fragrance to remind you of your trip to Florence then try this original shop. I bought home made soaps, orange blossom perfumes and even an organic spray to keep away mosquitos! The service is charming and all my gifts beautifully wrapped go and try something new!
