Itinerary

The lesson will take place in a historic, atmospheric workshop dating back to the 18th Century. In centuries of experience this historic lab has mixed the scientific knowledge of medical care together with the empirical knowledge of the healing properties of herbs, flowers and fruits.

You will relive the magical atmosphere of alchemists and apothecaries residing in Florence during the Renaissance period, surrounded by unique glassware, ampules and rare essences.
Following the historical footprints of Caterina de’ Medici and her master perfumer Renato Bianco, your Master will guide you through the process which will ultimately lead to the creation of your unique and personal fragrance.

Meet the master perfumer and learn the techniques of traditional Florentine perfumery.

Participants will take home a bottle of 50 ml (in case of perfume) or a bottle of 100 ml (in case of reed diffuser), the formula they created and a certificate of attendance.
This truly unique and authentic experience is not to be missed!
