Tracing Venice



The story of Aquaflor Firenze begins in 2009. The founder and art lover, Mauro Arena started imagining a perfumery house inspired by ideals of beauty and uniqueness. Aquaflor was born in the rooms of an ancient and prestigious palace, Palazzo Corsini Antinori Serristori, in the heart of Florence. Soon the business increased, and the founder decided to create a laboratory from the historic cellars of the palace. Within a few years, Aquaflor had a new home in Santa Croce composed of an underground laboratory where fragrances were and still are handmade and an olfactory, with a collection that now has over 1500 precious essences from every corner of the world. Today, Aquaflor remains a family business dedicated to the art of perfumery with artisanal techniques inspired by the ancient Florentine tradition.


Aquaflor is distinguished by accurate research, and the study and selection of top-quality raw materials. The entire production process, from the creation of the formula to the maceration, bottling and packing of the finished product, according to the highest standards of artisanal craftsmanship, takes place in the historic Renaissance palace that is the house of Aquaflor in the heart of Florence. Through great artisanship, the fragrances are able to awaken emotions, provide inspiration and interest, and engender relationships that will last a lifetime. This experience initiates a positive cycle, winning the trust of their customers.
