- +

The Imperial Lavender perfume from the Officina Profumo-Farmaceutica di Santa Maria Novella is a bouquet of fresh green citrus notes. The fragrance of lavender predominates in the heart of the perfume, which fades into more citrus and green notes. The lavender plant grows throughout the Mediterranean, in stony and sunny places. The name lavender originates from the Latin verb "wash" and emphasizes the idea of cleanliness associated with it. This plant has been used since ancient times to perfume linen, and once it was scattered on the ground so that, by trampling it, it would perfume the rooms. In the language of flowers it has been attributed the meaning of "distrust".
