Located in the heart of SoHo on Lafayette Street is one of Italy’s oldest and finest treasures. Established in 1612, the Officina Profumo-Farmaceutica di Santa Maria Novella started off as a pharmacy in Florence, Italy where Father Angiolo Marchissi created the finest pharmaceuticals through natural herbs and oils for monks. Today, Lafco New York brings the same renowned quality products to their Santa Maria Novella store in New York City offering visitors a genuine taste of fine Italian exports that have been around for 400 years. Santa Maria Novella offers an array of products for the entire family including milk-based soaps, naturally scented eau de colognes and candles, sun care, room fragrances (including their famous herb and flower potpourri), hair and body care products plus much more. The store also offers a large selection of Lafco candles, exquisitely scented candles made from the finest herbs and fragrances all decoratively packaged making them the perfect gift for any occasion.
