Inventing a new fragrance is a hands-on creative act that arouses memories, impressions and sensations. And there is a magical place in the heart of Florence’s Santa Croce district – Aquaflor, maison de parfum extraordinaire – where the age-old tradition of Florentine perfumery is alive and thriving.

The Aquaflor boutique is a cornucopia of olfactory delights, with a collection of fragrances crafted here in their own workshops using rare and precious raw materials sourced from every corner of the world.

Book a stay in a fabulous suite at the Baglioni Relais Santa Croce in Florence and treat yourself to a unique experience with Aquaflor. Here, guided by a master perfumer, you can create your own personal fragrance from a selection of over 60 different ingredients.

During your workshop, the scent specialist will walk you through each step as you discover the techniques behind the art of perfume-making, starting with choosing the essences. You will come away with a fascinating insight into the history of traditional Florentine perfumery and a small bottle of fragrance made with your own exclusive formula to take home.

Its notes and aromas will rekindle the memory every time you wear it.
