DESCRIPTION: In the Renaissance Florence the "Apothecary Guild" (today's chemists) was founded and included the perfumers who, through a particular order, were due to specify all their preparations. The first "perfumed waters" date back to that period, and were obtained through a special device called "Bottiglia Fiorentina" (Florentine Bottle). Caterina dei Medici, wife of the king of France (1533) imposed in Provence (France) the crop of lavender and from it the "Water of the Queen" (Acqua della Reina) was created. This lavender was the "Spigo Toscano", typical product of the KER Company, a living evidence of those traditions.
