Officina Profumo Farmaceutica di Santa Maria Novella’s Città di Kyoto fragrance was created to celebrate 40 years of partnership between the cities of Kyoto and Florence. Its floral bouquet has notes of iris, the symbol of Florence, coupled with sweet, sensual notes of lotus flower, popular in Japan. The perfume opens with vibrant, fruity and fresh top notes of jasmine and ylang-ylang, which are punctuated by the deeper hints of bergamot and orange. These are followed by base notes of Florentine iris and lotus.
Santa Maria Novella products are available in our physical store only, this listing online serves as a catalogue of the scents available to sample when visiting Gold Bug in person.
The mold for the bottle is reminiscent of the glass bottles Officina has used over the last two centuries of its history created in 1533 for their first fragrance worn by Caterina de' Medici.
