More than other destinations in the Mediterranean, Italy has a unique way of arousing each of the five senses!
The Italian sun - bronzes our skin so pleasantly whether in Portofino or Positano. The colors of Le Cinque Terre or Burano practically mesmerizes our eyesight. The Pasta alla vongole and other seafood of Capri or the Ligurian coast makes going out for Italian foods anywhere else practically absurd.
Going to Italian beaches since my childhood, I still remember the smells of the coastal towns and beaches. The salt in the air, small of lemons, seawater, water melon mixed with the espresso aroma.
So not surprising perfumers worldwide have tried to capture these aromas and smells in their perfumes. Wearing any of their perfumes takes me immediately back to Italy. Whether the famous Amalfi lemons, blood oranges, bergamot or rosemary or thyme.
Bergamot from Calabria is not just used in the Italian cuisine but also very popular for perfume. Nearly 90% of all bergamot oil comes from Calabria.
