Iris by Santa Maria Novella for Villa La Massa

Tuesday, 2 July 2013

Set on the banks of Arno river in Tuscany, the grand Villa La Massa has been the inspiration for a new home fragrance by Officina Profumo Farmaceutica di Santa Maria. The fragrance reflects the characteristics of the villa with a floral aroma enhanced by fresh citrus scents and softened with Rosa x centifolia and ylang-ylang.

Landscape architect Maria Chiara Pozzana created the villa's iris garden, set along the bank of the Arno river, which inspired the idea of creating a fragrance that would emulate the tranquil and atmospheric scene.
