Create your own perfume in Florence

Call 01242 547 705 to speak to a specialist Enquire


While the French town of Grasse has been immortalized as the perfume capital, Florence is home to a Master Perfumer who opens up a world of fragrances that are said to 'unveil the soul'. The art of creating perfume as we know it today was only developed in the 19th century, but ancient texts prove that fragrances were known already in the earliest civilizations. With the help of Sileno Cheloni, you will have the chance to create a perfume that is truly and essentially yours and return home with this very special memory of your holiday in Italy.


Perfume Making Experience in Florence with A&K Villas

The sensory journey to your very own fragrance starts with a step into the artisan perfume boutique of Sileno Cheloni in Florence. You will meet this true master of his craft for a personal introduction into the world of scents, as he explains the origin of sandalwood, iris extract and incense, some of the rarest ingredients available today. Sileno carefully choses raw materials that are purely natural and of the best quality, to create rare and very personal fragrances that seduce the memory to recall various emotions.




The 'Parlor of Essences', as the heart of Cheloni's boutique is called, is home to more than 1500 single scents, kept in antique wooden shelves. After an introduction into the fascinating history of perfumes, you will be guided along the process from mixing the ingredients to bottling up the precious fragrance to take home 100ml of your very own perfume. This very special experience is one for the whole family, with workshops that can be adapted to kids and teenagers.
