Off To Italy! – Olfactoria Goes On Vacation

My family and I have packed the car to the rafters and will slowly trundle (as I said the car  is quite heavily loaded) to Italy today.

It is going to be primarily a vacation of relaxing on the beach but – of course – some fragrant explorations have to take place as well.

In the beautiful city of Bologna, I will take a very close look at the Antica Profumeria Sacro Cuore , the Profumeria Naldi as well as Acque &Saponi and will report back, photos and all, once I return.

In the spirit of really getting away from it all for a week, posts will be a bit sparse, but there are a few scheduled, and the lovely Tara will host next weeks Monday Question again!

Have a wonderful time, I will miss you!

Hugs and Kisses! B

    How wonderful for you and your family! I’m more of a lurker than a commenter but truly enjoy your beautifully written reviews. I hope you have a marvelous time and will be anxiously awaiting the perfume report from Bologna as I will be going there at the end of September for an Italian course and am planning little visits to perfume shops (of course, 🙂 ). Safe travels!

    Enjoy your vacation! Come back with a lot of great impressions – perfume-related and not.

  18. Philipp says:

    Have fun in Italy.

    Acqua&Sapone sometimes carries (vintage) treasures bought from perfumeries that have gone belly up. You might find something great for cheap. Good luck!

  19. Olfactoria says:

    Thank you for your good wishes, you lovely people!
    Bologna was great, off to the seaside tomorrow! xoxo
