At Antica Torre Tornabuoni, we pride ourselves on considering every detail for our guests. One of those details we consider for you is fragrance! From the moment you enter our doors, you are greeted by inviting fine fragrance. Our fragrances are furnished exclusively by Officina de’ Tornabuoni, a historical Florentine brand with a long botanical heritage and certified artisanal production. Their store is just down the street from us on Via Tornabuoni, and we decided to share with you a bit about these marvelous fragrances and how we use them to accompany and pamper you in each corner of l’Antica Torre.
First of all, Officina de’ Tornabuoni’s collection is natural and non-toxic, which is very important to us as we want to create an inviting feeling, and at the same time, use high quality products that respect the wellbeing of our guests. Officina de’ Tornabuoni is known for their natural creations, and their fragrances follow the same wholesome approach as their skincare and supplements. The home fragrances are all free from alcohol and chemical or synthetic solvents. We use their fragrance guns and pot pourri to diffuse fragrance around the hotel’s common areas. The fragrance guns are water-based and contain the finest pure essential oils. Their pot pourri is renowned and delightful not only to smell but also to look at, with real fruit, flowers, and spices. The result is exquisite scent that is never over-powering.
In our selection of fragrance, we opt for fresh blends in the warmer seasons and warming blends in the colder periods of the year. If you visit us in the summer, you’ll be refreshed by Erbe Aromatiche, an aromatic lush blend of just-picked Mediterrean herbs, such as rosemary, thyme, and sage. If you visit us in the winter, you’ll be greeted by a warm blend of fruit and spice, such as Pomander, with juicy orange and spice, or Libreria, an enchanting woody, fruity and floral blend. These fragrances have become mainstays of our reception and other common areas, and, thanks to their aromatherapeutic properties, are also able to infuse these areas with a touch of comfort and wellbeing.
So, the next time you visit, be sure to notice the delightful fragrance that discreetly accompanies you throughout the palazzo, and, should you wish to discover a world of Florentine artisanal high craftsmanship, you need only take a few steps on Via Tornabuoni to visit Officina de’ Tornabuoni.
