A Novel Way to try Different Perfumes

Today we visited Officina Profumo-Farmaceutica di Santa Maria Novella in Florence which dates back to 1221. Founded as a Dominican friars convent, it is renowned for the formulation of perfumes and remedies.

Its apothecary art legacy is deeply intertwined with Florence’s history and it's considered to be the world’s oldest pharmacy. 

They have a novel way of testing their perfumes- a cone next to each perfume that you can use to smell it.

What do you think?
