I have had several home fragrances that I purchased here in Florence. I love the scent, but I don’t like the ugly sticks!
Our darling ceramics artist, Anastazija, has come up with a fragrance globe! Instead of the sticks, one puts the fragrance oil onto a piece of chalk like material, insert it in the globe and plug it up with a piece of sponge. She has packaged these 2.5″ globes in a small gift box which includes the chalk, the sponge and a pretty green and gold ribbon. I am bringing back a few for Christmas gifts.
I have this pretty blue globe. She also has pearl and dark blue all with little gold feet.
If you are planning a trip to Florence, you might want to consider taking a home fragrance or perfume making workshop. It is something different than wine tasting and cooking classes!
