Officina Profumo Farmaceutica di Santa Maria Novella’s Peau d’Espagne (Spanish leather) fragrance is a very old scent, originally formulated as an essence. As far back as the 16th century it was used to scent leather. It is a masculine fragrance, with a rich, exclusive bouquet of resinous and spicy notes.
The mold for the bottle is reminiscent of the glass bottles Officina has used over the last two centuries of its history, and it is used for all the other Santa Maria Novella colognes which have been created subsequently.
