VIITH EDITION OF "FRAGRANCES OF BOBOLI "
In Florence, the monumental Boboli Gardens hosts from 16 to 19 May 2013, the seventh edition of
“The fragrances of Boboli” exhibition and fair, where visitors can view prestigious documents of
art tradition linked to the botanical universe.
The Fragrances of Boboli event, a showcase of rare and peculiar scents and fragrances, full of,
flavours, forms and styles, continues for three and a half days inside the historic and artistic areas of
the Royal Gardens and illustrates some of the fundamental highpoints in an ancient production that
has continued without interruption over the years.
The wonderful display of perfumes, soaps, candles, room fragrances, essential oils, cosmetics,
extracts from aromatic herbs, spices, fragrant flowers and plants, papers, rare prints and books,
accessories and complementary products manage to extract and provide pleasure and well being
from the olfactory and sensorial universe.
The exhibitors taking part in this event, which is not simply a show and fair, but also a showcase
onto the world, are chosen with extreme care. Selection is severe and also takes the historic and
scenic characteristics of the environment into account. This is the only event in which it is possible to not only present, but to sell selected laboratory products.
A garden within the Gardens: the Lower Botanical Gardens and the Greenhouse are exhibition areas
that have been expressly allowed to keep their original structure without carrying out any major
alterations that might change their atmosphere, thus preserving the spirit of the site and transmitting
it to visitors.
Entrance ticket to the exhibition allows also the visit to the Boboli Gardens, The Museums of the Silverware, The Museums of the Porcelains, The Museums of the Costumes, and to the Bardini Garden.
