Rosa is Officina Profumo-Farmaceutica di Santa Maria Novella's reinterpretation of the ingredient par excellence in the history of perfume. A very ancient raw material, already used by the Sumerians, mentioned in the Iliad, and reserved for nobles and the court in 5th century B.C. China. An exquisitely floral olfactory construction tributes this timeless flower.

The top notes welcome us with rose petals, bergamot and neroli. The middle notes include Rose Centifolia, violet and jasmine: it is this, 'the rose of May', that lies at the heart of the fragrance and the art of perfumery. The base notes complete the journey with musk, patchouli, and vanilla. The rose is also part of the Officina history: archives show that the Dominican friars were already preparing their famous 'Rose Water' in 1381, used as a perfume and home remedy.

Olfactory Family: Floral Notes

Top: Rose Petals, Bergamot, Neroli

My wife actually ordered the Rosa perfume herself. I had planned to surprise her, but she just couldn’t wait. She did not realise that I had placed an order with you. She loves your perfume as do I. We cannot wait to travel again and return to Florence. Thanking you and God Bless.
