Description

This listing is for a set of FOUR (4) vintage Italian cologne SAMPLE VIALS of Acqua di Colonia Tuberosa / TUBEROSE from Florence, Italy.

NOTE: this listing is for 4 TINY SAMPLE VIALS, like the small tube shown in the images to the right of the cologne bottle -- NOT the whole bottle! Only one small tube/vial is pictured, but you will receive FOUR (4) of them. (Convo me if you need more. Larger quantities available.)

I purchased this cologne in Florence, directly from the Santa Maria Novella's perfume-pharmacy, the only one of its kind operating inside a church and one of the oldest perfumeries or pharmacies in the world.

The .7 ml TINY SAMPLE TUBES of decanted cologne you will receive will be drawn from the exact bottle shown here, with a sterile pipette dedicated to this scent, and transferred to FOUR clean, NEW, glass, very tiny VIALS with plastic snap-in caps (which may be white or black, depending upon available inventory). You can see an example of the size vial in each of the photos, in the foreground.

These little vials would make superb BRIDESMAIDS' GIFTS.

In 1612, a monk in Italy opened a pharmacy to the public, selling the curative and ephemeral products the monks had been using for their own health and well-being.

From Santa Maria Novella's website:
"Officina Profumo-Farmaceutica di Santa Maria Novella’s Tuberosa (tuberose) is a sensual, persistent, single-floral oriental note fragrance. The tuberose plant is native of India and Mexico and reached Europe around 1500. The flowers grow in clusters and release their intense fragrance at sunset. Flower symbolism associates the tuberose with sensuality."

As Smithsonian magazine tells it:
“A 600-year-old pharmacy started by Florentine monks is now a trendy global marketer of perfumes and medieval elixirs. As home to one of the world's oldest pharmacies, Santa Maria Novella boasts an attraction no other church in Italy can match. Dominican monks began concocting herbal remedies in Florence in 1612. Today, the Officina Profumo-Farmaceutica di Santa Maria Novella still sells traditional elixirs, along with more contemporary skin-care products, oils and perfumes.”

Again, you are NOT receiving a vintage bottle of perfume, but 4 TINY SAMPLES in new .7 ml VIALS filled with as much perfume as possible while still leaving head space.
