Momenti di Firenze is a company specialized in scented candles.
The name of Florence (Firenze) was chosen since it’s the city where alcohol based fragrances became popular during 14th century. It all started when Catherine de’ Medici, who, aged just 14, commissioned the “Officina” to create for her a signature scent. Known as ‘Acqua della Regina’ or ‘Water of the Queen’, could be interpreted as being the world’s first celebrity fragrance. The Officina’s original scent sensation helped lay the foundations for both the French and English perfume industry. Florence remained the main perfume capital in Europe till the end of 18th century.
