Giardini di Toscana
In a picturesque medieval village in the Casentino Valley, in the heart of Tuscany, pharmacist Giovan Piero and wife, Emma Ducci opened a perfumery, the founding roots of Giardini di Toscana, where you can still find the original book of formulas that Piero wrote when developing their fragrances.
Today, their granddaughter, Silvia Martinelli, creator-composer of the brand, in honour of her family's history, creates her own fragrances. Reproducing her grandfather's ancient recipes, she modifies them in the family workshop, in order to enhance their properties and create fragrances that are the heart of Tuscany.
Silvia finds inspiration for her perfumes in her gardens, where smell play an integral part of the whole garden experience: Giardini di Toscana’s essences evoke memories, from childhood to intriguing moments, from the hypnosis of flowers to grandma's biscuits, from school pencils to energising citrus fruits, from the intangible undergrowth to the intense musk.
