Fathom Favorites : Florence

Santa Maria Novella

One of the world's oldest pharmacies, and quite possibly the most breathtaking, it was founded in 1221 by Dominican friars looking to make herbal poultices and remedies for the monastery. The offerings — perfumes, talcums, soaps — are ornately packaged and, fittingly, heavenly scented.
