The scent of Firenze

As promised, a post dedicated to the most ancient pharmaceutical workshop in the world.
Santa Maria di Novella in Florence is well known for its natural products from local herbs since 1612 and for producing the first perfume worldwide for Catherine de Medici. Now their vast collection includes from soaps and perfumes to facial skincare and wax. And the list is long. Being crazy about it ever since I came across their products at at El.Marnieri gallery, I couldn’t help but paying a visit at its historical and charming building in Florence when I traveled there.

Sleek

Getting my staying-alive 70s jumpsuit out for a walk has never been the same after adding some major sparkle
with Yannis Sergakis fine jewelry. A yellow and black gold pendant and cuff with diamonds accompanied my beloved V ring from the Charnières collection.
Αnd if you wonder about the radiant make up, that’s because I got a skin treatment with the Powercell series
of products by Helena Rubinstein and the Re-Plasty Laserist serum, which is a miracle on its own.
Shoes:
A lovestory that was born a couple of months ago when I came face to face with a pair of satin sandals with pink metallic strap,
by -who else- Raf Simons for Dior.

Versus

Bold and sensual, Anthony Vaccarello’s capsule collection for Versus Versace Summer 2015 really stroke my fancy. Especially the last black dress with the high/low hem. Ooh I could see me in that.

“It’s an instinctive collection based on how I see the Versus girl now. She’s urban and pays attention to details. It’s based on my memories of the original Versus collections that I loved. “
