Officina Profumo–Farmaceutica di Santa Maria Novella’s Narciso fragrance is still made following the perfume formula from the 1800s. Its single floral note is inebriating and pungent, inspired by the perfume given off by daffodils. The name comes from “narké”, Greek for daze, since it was believed that the daffodil’s fragrance had narcotic properties. In Greek mythology, the first daffodil bloomed where the young hunter Narcissus fell in love with his own reflection in a pool of water and drowned trying to hug himself. The daffodil is a symbol of vanity and egotism.
