Capri, Ischia, the beautiful Amalfi Coast, I adore those places and enjoyed the past days there. Everything there smells like summer, from the slices of lemon to the salty skin after sea-bathing, from the beautiful flowers around every corner to the solar-soaked elements. There really is nothing like summer days, where time seems to stop, and the world moves slowly, all under the nourishing warmth of the sun. Therefore I love ACQUA DI PARMA’s BLU MEDITERRANEO collection. Those novel fragrances evoke the charm of the Italian Mediterranean and you can immerse yourself in this beautiful energy, even after you are back home.
Recently, I was invited by ACQUA DI PARMA to celebrate summer at Brera restaurant in Zurich. Along the beautiful scents, we enjoyed great food and cocktails that were inspired by the ingredients of each fragrance. Enjoy those beautifully fresh and buoyant fragrances to make your summer days halcyon.
