With February gone and spring right around the corner my dreams of a summer holiday are starting to take shape. I've always had a thing for The Talented Mr. Ripley - well the styling anyways. The smells of the sweet southern Italian coast are calling my name. I love associating smells with a specific memory or special moment and in this case I can see Neroli Portofino by Tom Ford being just that. It kinda has an aqua de Parma feel, but it's a bit lighter and slightly more feminine so pretty much just what I was looking for.
1 part aristocratic rebellion.
1 part unexpected ease
and a dash of fresh italian romance.
equals a dream holiday fulfilled.
