Eau d'Italie


Decorno recently asked her readers, "What is your favorite perfume?" I chose the inconspicuously packaged line from Eau d'Italie (pictured above) with the explanation that wearing it makes me feel "brassy". However, I feel this description is only partially true. The real reason that I love, LOVE this scent is because it reminds me of being here...








...Hotel Le Sirenuse in Positano, Italy.

The fragrance was created by Marina Sersale, a member of the family who has owned Le Sirenuse since it was the private summer residence of the Marchesi Sersale. Inspired by and developed especially for the hotel in 2002, the scent has become more than an free amenity with a night's stay. An entire line has been developed for the hotel's boutique and has become a best seller based on it's ability to instantly transport you to the Amalfi Coast.

As far as the hotel goes, I don't have the words to describe how incredible this place is. Have a visit here.

I want to pluck this post and hang it up. These images (and those via the link) are wicked gorgeous. Lucky, lucky you to have actually taken this in firsthand - through ALL your senses.

Thank you. Yes, I am still dreaming of returning someday. Maybe for our 10-year anniversary? Not sure if I can wait that long.

The Amalfi Coast is definitely at the top of my Must-Go list. The photos are amazing. And how nice to know were to stay when we finally get there.

Stunning! I've never made it to that part of Italy but am dying to go. I love this range of products too.

Amazing packaging which I did manage to discover firsthand at Lafco last month.

God what I wouldn't give to be there right now instead of home sick again. I really need to always remember to wear my gloves on the subway from now on. Cough cough.

I have ALWAYS wanted to go there some day! I've been to Rome and Florence, but not yet to the Amalfi coast or this place. Thank you for posting these incredible photos!

The Amalfi Coast is definitely on my top 5 list and these photos confirm why! So beautiful and what great associations.

Beautiful! It's no wonder you love this scent, if it transports you back to such a wonderful place.

I LOVE Le Sirenuse! It's been 8 years since I stayed there but I'd love to get back there soon.

Oh how I love Positano! The interiors of the hotel are gorgeous, especially that bathroom overlooking the water. We stayed at a different but also lovely place but it doesn't really compare to La Sirenuse. Love the new homepage pattern as well. Good work!
