I cannot wait. I am longing for summer so much, that I always have to remind myself of the feeling by sniffing summer smells. One of the best summer scents comes from the manufacture Profumi del Forte and is called Vittoria Apuana, like a district of the Italian city Forte dei Marmi.
This perfume is so soft, sweet and lazy that you only have to close your eyes and you will wake up at the beach. The ingredients may sound funny: vanilla, coconut, tiaré flower, banana… I want to mention that we are talking about a very shy banana and its companions are very unobtrusive too! Anyone who has smelled this perfume once will agree with me that it is really well done without being obnoxious. Vittoria Apuana is like the sun warming your skin while the ocean dazzles with sunlit shades of blue. No matter how cold it may be outside, Vittoria Apuana covers you like a warm blanket, hugs you and promises that summer will arrive soon.
