During the period of prosperity in the Roman Empire, the Romans indulged in the luxury and generously used perfumes and cosmetics in their daily lives. Perfumery culture was further developed in Venice during the Middle Ages. Through the main channel of the trade centre raw materials reached Europe. The “pomander” – a jewellery decor in which incense was placed for perfuming and protecting against infections, was created in Venice, as well as perfume bottles of Murano glass.
And, of course, the Florence of the Renaissance. The very name of this city is dedicated to the goddess of flowers – Flora. The famous Florentine Catherine de Medici brought the alchemist René to France, who was known for his knowledge of poisons and perfumes, and has created fragrances for the Queen.
One of the oldest perfumery of the world operates in Florence: Officina Profumo-Farmaceutica di Santa Maria Novella, founded in 1221 by the monks of the Order of St Dominic. The monks grew medicinal herbs in the monastery’s garden to make medicines, soaps and fragrances.
