In the magical atmosphere of a place associated with the "splendid" Florence of Dè Medici, a perfume with an evocative name was born. Florence Iris is once again the protagonist of the perfume, but in a ravishing and feminine expression. Caterina de' Medici, cleverly, wore perfume on her gloves and body: in this way she avoided the smells of other people, who at that time of history did not wash themselves regularly. This gestuelle was invented by Renato Bianco (or, as the French said: René le Florentin) who was her personal and trusted perfumer and, not surprisingly, he followed her to the court in France after her marriage. He invented many ways of wearing perfume especially for Catherine, including the famous scented pomegranates, a special ornament in the shape of a sphere that could be worn around the neck or on the belt.
