Fragrant Bliss On Italian Shores – A Quick Buon Giorno!

I am still lounging by the pool while writing this, but I wanted to share my blissed out state of perfumed contentment with all of you.

On our trip to Venice (more about all of it to follow once I’m home), I found a gorgeous perfume to make me happy.

The very Italian Santa Maria Novella Vaniglia is hitting all my fragrance-related buttons. Warm, cosy, elegant, deep, scrumptious and utterly delightful, Vaniglia is exactly the kind of deep, dark vanilla I have been looking for.

On another note, yesterday my blog hit 1 Million visits. I’m quite floored by that number actually and incredibly happy and grateful to all of you who visit, read or comment. A big thank you from the bottom of my heart!

See you soon,
B xx
