This elegant store is adjacent to the farmaceutica factory. It's on a busy city street that's hot and dusty in summer months. But step inside to the cool, fragrant and welcoming sales floor. Yes, it's got the soaps, oils, and lotions you'll find in the other stores. If you're curious, ask to see the complete catalog and explore the world of natural dyes (one is made from ladybugs!) and others from hard to find herbs. I bought the almond soap (sapone mandorla). Do ask. The attentive staff at there to help and inform. Weeks later in my home shower, I imagined myself back in Florence, exploring the world by scent.
