Santa Maria di Novella (Zone 3)
One of the world's oldest pharmacies is located in Firenze (Italy) and is called Officina Profumo Farmaceutica di Santa Maria Novella. It was founded by monks -who grew herbs for medicines, balms and creams- in 1221! Many of the recipes haven't changed much, because they work very efficiently and smell and look gorgeous. And so does the new Santa Maria di Novella store that has just opened its doors in Antwerp- after Paris, London, Barcelona, New York City and Tokyo. Lovely!
