Santa Maria Novella at Watson Kennedy

November 3, 2011

The centuries old Italian Santa Maria Novella is one of the oldest pharmacies in the world–they create some of the most unique and sought after scented goods in the market. I have long been a fan, and am so excited to now offer it to all of you at Watson Kennedy.
