Found this place while looking for places to buy gifts from Florence and it’s indeed a gem! Owner is sweet and very helpful. Prices are fair and quality is superb. I will surely come back!
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.
