La Rivista - From the Blog
Ortygia is a small south-eastern island at the end of Siracusa and is home to three sides of the sea. You can almost smell Africa from the edges, where the breeze caresses your face and the sunshine is good for the soul. This beautiful corner of the world was once home to lush gardens, rows of citrus orchards, and atmospheric festivities. We can just smell the aromatic blood oranges growing in the groves among lemon trees, near Europe’s highest active volcano, Mt Etna. It is without wonder that Ortigia Sicilia has perfectly captured the essence of Siracusa in its soaps, candles, and scents to the point of almost retrofitting back in time.La Primavera’ (Spring) is officially upon us. A season which brings new beginnings and a sense of restored energy. Fresh buds begin to bloom, and the days are warmer. With the change of season, it's the perfect opportunity to give our fragrance wardrobe a little refresh. Whilst the colder months appeal to comforting woody scents, spring calls for lighter fragrances that are refreshing and invigorating.
The art of gifting fragrance. It is, of course, one of our favourite topics. We love the opportunity to guide our clients in selecting fragrances, whether it be for themselves or someone special. Some might even say it is our forte. One thing we are finding more often is that people are opting to be just that little bit more adventurous when it comes to picking the perfect perfume.
