Eau de parfum Calendimaggio for men, handcrafted by the Dominican nuns of Pratovecchio.

Perfumed water with a dedication to the Dominican Jubilee (1221 - 2021), with the reference to the feast of the arrival of spring, "Calendimaggio" or "Cantar Maggio".

By an ancient tradition common to all the monastic communities, both male and female, in the Monastery in addition to the activities of embroidery, pyrography, creation of illuminated manuscripts, there was always a Spezieria in which medicinal, lactovari (medicinal compounds with honey and sugar) and other specific liqueurs were produced preparations based on "simple" that is officinal herbs grown in the monastery garden or wild herbs collected in the woods. These medicines were intended both for internal use in the Monastery as well as for sale to the public.

The practice of the apothecary in the monasteries of both sexes was in fact of ancient date and universally widespread and that of "Speziala" or of "Aromataria" was a task regularly present in female monasteries.

The rediscovery of the preparations of the Ancient apothecary of the Monastery of Santa Maria della Neve and San Domenico originates from this centuries-old tradition, both in the cosmetic field , both healthy and that today the Dominican nuns propose again.
