The Iris perfume from the Officina Profumo-Farmaceutica di Santa Maria Novella is a bouquet of earthy floral notes. Of very distant Asian origin, "Shu-tu-wu", "came from heaven", this is the name attributed to iris in some ancient sacred books kept in a monastery in Tibet. Iris grows spontaneously on the hills of Tuscany so much so that it was taken as a symbol of the city of Florence. In mythology, Iris was the messenger of the gods who, across the rainbow, was the bearer of good news. In the language of flowers she symbolizes "Majestic Beauty".
