Great experience in the treasury of the essential oils! I've enjoyed every single moment; and it was super informative and exciting. I'd love to have another experience with extended version of it to learn more from Maria.

I spent a lovely morning with Maria learning how to work with my senses and emotions to create my own personalised perfume. Understanding how the essential oils work together and complement each other. A lovely morning tea was tasty delights and nice conversation! A wonderful relaxing experience.

A wonderful afternoon with an exceptional woman. Letizia is thoughtful and passionate in her approach to aromatherapy. This is not just making a perfume, it's a holistic approach to what you need in the moment. Plus she serves yummy treats before and after ☕️🍷

I would highly recommend Maria Letizia's class to anyone interested in aromatherapy and botanical perfumes. I learned so much. And with Maria Letizia's help and guidance I was able to make my own unique botanical perfume which I love and use everyday!

My sister and I throughly enjoyed our morning with Maria in her studio. Learning about the powers of essential oils and making our own unique fragrance. Something that I would never do at home, this was a wonderful treat while on holidays in Florence. Maria was so welcoming, she had a wonderful morning planned with perfume making and introducing us to many delicious Florentine cakes and snacks! Thanks for having us!

This was the highlight of my trip to Florence! My sister and I had an amazing time learning about fragrances and creating a wonderful scent to take back home. The food was amazing!! Letizia had the most amazing cake and typical florentine foods on offer and wine and tea. We didn't want the workshop to end. Will defiantly come back if I return to Florence and can't wait to learn more about oils and fragrances when I come home!
