Acqua di Fior d'Arancio - Orange Blossom Water

Choose size:
Sale price$ 35.00

Orange blossoms from the sun-soaked orchards of Sicily make this invigorating water a treatment for purifying and toning the skin.

The Dominican Friars used this water centuries ago to obtain relief from the common cold by soaking a clean wash cloth and placing on chest or nose. Today, add a splash to your bath to soothe tired muscles or apply a touch to your body or to linens as a refreshing fragrance.

Use orange water if you have combination or oily skin to wipe away any residue from make-up removal or extra sunscreen on face.


Established in 1221 in Florence, the Officina Profumo-Farmaceutica di Santa Maria Novella originates from the Dominican friars who founded the Santa Maria Novella convent and cultivated a remarkable garden.

This marked the beginning of their expertise in pharmacopoeia and natural preparations. Over time, this knowledge expanded to encompass cosmetics, fragrances, and wellness products, making Santa Maria Novella a renowned name in these realms. 

In 1533, a young Catherine de Medici embarked on her journey to marry the future king of France, accompanied by a retinue that included a perfumer named Renato Bianco. Renato, later known as René le Florentin, brought the ancient wisdom of Florence's essence-makers to Paris, spreading the noble art of perfume throughout the world. Acqua di Santa Maria Novella, also known as Acqua della Regina or the "Queen's Water," is the oldest fragrance from the Officina Profumo-Farmaceutica di Santa Maria Novella, paying homage to the love-filled gift that Caterina bestowed upon France.
