Meet your Master Perfumer at the historical perfumery and laboratory Antica Spezieria San Simone and learn the techniques and the secrets of the historical Florentine alchemical tradition!

The lesson will take place in an ancient, evocative workshop. 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 Catherine de Medici and René le Florentine, your Master Perfumer will guide you through the process which will ultimately lead to the creation of your unique, custom-made perfume!

At the end of the workshop, you will be rewarded with a 50 ml bottle of your own personalized perfume. Each participant will also receive a certificate as a souvenir of the day. Don't miss this truly unique and authentic experience!
