Acqua di S.M. Novella Parfum

Acqua di S.M. Novella is the Officina Profumo-Farmaceutica di Santa Maria Novella’s oldest fragrance. It is the perfume that Caterina de’ Medici commissioned the Dominican monks to create in 1533, and she took it with her to France when she married Enrico di Valois. For this reason this fragrance is identified as a perfume rather than with a cologne. It is a bouquet of fresh citrus notes.

The mold for the bottle is reminiscent of the glass bottles Officina has used over the last two centuries of its history, and it is used for all the other Santa Maria Novella colognes which have been created subsequently.

Customer Reviews

Based on 1 review
alluring and romantic

This scent is unforgettable with its freshness reminiscent of bergamot yet not soapy or harsh as citrus tends to be nowadays but elegant like a flight of white birds through the summer sky. Too bad there is no body lotion to accompany this diaphanous scent as it tends to be rather ephemeral.
