    Stop: 2 hours
    Meet your master perfumer at Antica Erboristeria San Simone and get ready for a sensory experience! The lesson will take place in a historic, atmospheric workshop dating back to 1700. 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 personal fragrance. At the end of the workshop you will be rewarded with a 50ml bottle of your own personalized perfume. Each participant will also receive a certificate as a memory of the day. This truly authentic experience is not to be missed.

I can only see so many paintings, so my daughter and I went to a perfume making class. Deborah first explained the history of the shop and perfume, then we spent time seeing what scents we liked (from 3 different categories). Dr fernanda helped put them together and determined how many drops of each fragrance. Fascinating really. We now have our own special scent with its own name. What’s not to love? We were the only 2 there so it was very personal. Highly recommend if you want something essentially Florentine.

Wow
Booked this tour on a whim and was not disappointed. Because we were traveling during the low season, I had the dottoressa and her assistant all to myself. They were both amazing!!! I learned about the history of perfume and the history of the shop and then was helped to create my own personal fragrance, which I received a 50 ml bottle of. I want to smell this way for the rest of my life. I brought the formula home and can reorder my scent when I run out! I absolutely cannot recommend this experience highly enough!

Lovely ladies, shop, and perfume.
May 2018 • Friends
This was a lovely activity to do with my daughter whilst in Florence. We found it informative and interesting.
We were helped to create our own perfumes and they were packaged beautifully for us to take home.
The ladies were so knowledgeable and friendly, and patient, helping us until we got it just perfect.
Such a perfect gift to bring home and use as a reminder of our trip.
The best thing is they keep a record of your recipe so you can email and order more to ship home!
So enjoyed this!

WONDERFUL EXPERIENCE
Nov 2017 • Family
My Mother (77), my Son (27) and I spent a magical 3 hours together creating our own personal fragrance along with some very special memories.

The guidance and tuition delivered with passion was inspiring and exciting. We were taken across the road and treated to a cappuccino for a break and the whole thing felt so personal and attentive. There was nothing corporate or phoney about this experience with no hard selling on etc and I will definitely do this again now that I understand the process and have more confidence in my own preferences.

We were encouraged to sample at each stage of the process and left with our own individual, beautifully packaged fragrance (not forgetting the knowledge gained during the time).

A lovely gift idea and something so completely different for anyone at any age, A real treat to remember. Lovely, lovely people.

ps... a tip! you are encouraged to name your perfume which is then labelled so, think of a name beforehand
