Aptly described as a luxury pharmacy-apothecary, Santa Maria Novella is a Florentine brand with a rich history. The world's oldest pharmacy, Santa Maria Novella is marked by the utmost care towards their products, retaining age-old traditions that have stood the test of time.
Their formulations are generous and effective, with a diverse range featuring an ultra soft shaving cream scented with Tuscan tobacco leaves, classic colognes, a centuries-old iris root toothpaste, and a milk-based patchouli body soap aged for 60 days then packed by hand. And that's only a small set of their products. Their exquisite repertoire are all prepared and packaged, making for exceptional gifts and exemplifying the Men's Biz mantra of achieving a better life through better grooming.
- Founded in 1612 in Florence, Italy, Santa Maria Novella is a diverse brand producing a range of shaving, skin, and fragrant products.
- Perfect for those who admire subtle luxury, Santa Maria Novella's quality speaks for itself through its packaging and the product’s efficacy, and deliberately avoids advertising.
- Santa Maria Novella's fragrances are old world yet enduringly memorable, stemming from their historic scented waters and vinegars. Melograno is a timeless classic, featuring the discrete powdery sweetness of pomegranate, whereas Peau d'Espagne (Spanish Skin) is a fragrance evocative of tanneries and floral scented leather, and Pot Pourri is a riff on Bay Rum without the dusty connotations.
- For the shaving inclined, the range of shaving goods leads individuals from pre-shave to completion. This includes restorative olive oil shaving foams, rose water splashes, and calming non-alcoholic emulsions.
