Oh but what perfumes, and what history. It is an experience for the senses. It is a gift for yourself or someone special to carry a piece of Venice home. There are several locations. Ah to just smell heaven.

Excellent Products - bought an amazing perfume. Service is very discreet - it's almost as if they don't want to sell.

We stumbled into this oldest pharmacy in Venice which now sells perfumes. The woodwork was beautiful. The saleswoman was very friendly as well. Would recommend a look inside and the perfume was great.
