Pot Pourri tells you a poetical story, inspired by 800 years of tradition, just waiting to become your story. 

Pot Pourri is the fragrance of Officina Profumo-Farmaceutica di Santa Maria Novella’s historic pot pourri. This cologne recalls the aromas of buds, leaves and flower petals characteristic of the Tuscan hills.

The freshness of the laurel is combined with citrus notes on the top. In the middle, an aromatic blend of lavender, thyme, rosemary and cloves gives a feeling of naturalness and well-being. In the base, cedarwood, patchouli, and balsam from Peru give character to the mélange.

Olfactory Family: Aromatic Notes

Top: Bergamot, Bitter Orange, Laurel

Middle: Lavender, Thyme, Cloves, Rosemary

Base: Patchouli, Cedarwood, Peru Balm

We agree with Angel Alvarez Alberdi‘s review

The ingredients have changed and the proportion of perfume ingredients to alcohol and water has reduced, so you have to use more to smell it, and the smell has changed. On enquiring from the salesman in Picadilly, no longer being a small bespoke supplier, they are subject to more stringent regulations and have had to compromise their product’s integrity so much so that they can no longer provide the perfume as they describe it to be, 800 years etc. and the price has increased by 60% since this change. Santa Maria is now cheap irritating ( as in rash and having to buy piriton to settle skin hives down) and very expensive. We are going back to Prada Infusion d’iris and Chanel Pour Monsieur, very very saddened by the loss of a wonderful product destroyed by the hands of whoever is now running this sweet stall money laundering business. I have been a customer for thirty five years and my mother and her sisters before me.

Some recent change in the formula?

Hi I adore Potpurri, been using it for many years. Normaly I use a 100 ml bottle every 8 months. I just bought a new one and beyond the changes in the bottle I believe I feel some differences in the smell and how it evolves. I'm not saying I dislike it, it's just somewhat different. It is still a very special fragrance. I just wanted to ask whether there's been a recent change in the formula or ingredients implemented at the same time as the bottle change - I'd be interested to know more about it. Many thanks.

My signature life fragrance!

I have used this scent in my home for over 30 years! Discovered in Italy and is the only scent that I will ever use. I was so grateful to find a scent that is so elegant, welcoming to the senses of everyone who enters my home. It is a relaxing and loving scent. I highly recommend to anyone who loves to feel at peace in their home every single day. I love your website - I used to buy from Lafco in NYC.

A jewel in an essence bottle

I have never heard about it. I got this perfume as a gift and I was surprised with a unique and very special essence. Incredible and flawless presentation. unlike anything I've ever known. I really recommend the experience. Congratulations to the company for a product development of such excellence.

Absolutely lovely.

Ever since my favorite perfume was discontinued, I've searched for one I would like as much. SMN Pot Pourri is IT. This is the nicest, most unusual scent I've found. Packaging is very beautiful, order is very carefully packed and promptly shipped. Great company to do business with.
