Glorious Officina Profumo-Farmaeutica di Santa Maria Novella is very close to Santa Maria Novella station, but a world away from modern city bustle. Established in 1612 by Dominican apothecaries, the frescoed chapel is full of historic herbal lotions and potions.
There is also a museum displaying antique tools and objects collected throughout the centuries.

Please note that in February and July the shop is not open on Sundays. Visits to the museum outside opening hours are possible by appointment.
