Olfattorio – Bar à Parfums

A revolutionary institution

There are still places where perfumery has remained, at its origins, one of the finest of the arts, a complex and privileged ritual that must be conducted with skill and great talent. One of the places in Florence where this tradition lives again every day is Olfattorio – Bar à Parfums.

In a sumptuous historical location, where ancient and modern coexist, this temple of artistic perfumery gives its customers the opportunity to live a unique experience thanks to the Bar à Parfums format, a perfume showroom, where “tasting” hundreds fragrances in special glasses designed ad hoc by Giovanni Gaidano, which allow a total immersion in the world of smell.

The goal of Olfattorio is to carry on and preserve the culture of perfume, bringing customers to awaken their sense of smell, and leading them in a sensory journey that, starting from the fragrances, will lead them to rediscover distant thoughts and memories, inextricably linked to the precious aromas and hints contained in each vial.

Olfattorio is the Italian distributor of exclusive brands of artistic perfumery, which preserves and transmits the story. The place dedicated to this conservation and exaltation of the perfume art is the Bar à Parfums where the visitor, discovering the olfactory notes that resonate in him, can discover himself and find the fragrance that expresses the language of his most hidden personality.

Twenty-five brands on the shelves. Famous names such as Dyptique, Aesop, Diana Vreeland, L’Artisan Parfumeur and Teo Cabanel. But there are also exclusive fragrances for environments, skincare products and famous make-up brands such as, for example, T. LeClerc, which produces some of the best powders and lipsticks in the world.

Entering from Olfattorio means traveling, exploring, discovering. Sitting at the wonderful Bar à Parfums, surrounded by the historical charm of the location, the world of fragrances will open up and finally you can choose them with all the ease of the world, tasting slowly the fragrances.

We can't. That's why every week we share the best experiences florence has to offer.
