Regarding today’s wonderful article on Farmacia Santa Maria Novella, I wanted to add that they have a great branch in Bangkok that I have visited often and where I was able to appreciate and purchase the most aromatic fragrances. True masters of the arts of fragrance. I dabble in making my own fragrant skin care oils, perfumes and colognes and potpourri from flowers and herbs in my neighbors ’ gardens and mine and then give them to neighbors and friends. One friend who is a real Thai Druid and Seer, creates a new special incense blend with poetic name for each of my annual “Hatsugama” (First Tea Ceremonies of the New Year). I have the highest praise for Farmacia Santa Maria Novella here in Bangkok area!
