Santa Maria Novella | Florence | Italy

W hen I first time smelled this Italian brand named Santa Maria Novella, I fall in love with their natural flower flavors so far.

義大利百年香氛品牌:聖塔瑪麗亞諾維拉,我最喜歡的香水味道,分別是「佛羅倫斯守護神香水」和「 盟約50週年京都紀念香水」,這兩款獨特的香味,聞一次就愛上。

Firenze, how beautiful Italian name it is! But this post is without outfits and travel tips or stories. I know, we should spend at least 2 days to visit the museums and see the romantic architectures around, but plans can never keep up with changes.

We were supposed to be only in Florence for the whole day, but plans were changed to stay in Pisa for the whole afternoon over the time we estimated. Pisa is a beautiful small city even though we were there on a rainy day so that we came to Florence too late in the evening and than back to Rome in the night.

Never the less, I still wanna share our short stay in this beautiful city Florence and what we’ve done?

傍晚時分,我們終於抵達了徐志摩筆中這美麗的城市,翡冷翠。這一篇的內容沒有穿搭,也沒有詳細的旅遊介紹,因為我們在佛羅倫斯的傍晚只待了2個多小時就離開。什麼?!你一定會很驚訝,我們到底在短時間之內做了些什麼?佛羅倫斯這城市並不大,但我聽到的行程都是起碼待個兩天,才能把基本的市區和景點看完。

話說,原本想說比薩只是個小城市,跟比薩斜塔拍個照就可以盡快回到佛羅倫斯市區,沒想到比薩這小城市比我們想像中的漂亮,因此不小心待了整個下午,完全超出計畫之外,但佛羅倫斯回羅馬的車票都已經事先買好了,所以還是得要從比薩再回到佛羅倫斯才行。

於是我們回到佛羅倫斯已經是傍晚的時間,大概不到2小時所有的店都會打烊,我們趕緊用最快的速度,不是衝去看百花聖母大教堂,當然也不可能去已經閉館的烏菲茲美術館,也不是去精品大街,而是先衝到聖塔瑪莉亞的佛羅倫斯總店,先進來朝聖再說。

Santa Maria Novella

 

 

Before all the shops were closed, we went to the famous store of Santa Maria Novella original started from 1612 in Florence. Those dedicated and glorious decorations caught my eyes when I first stepped into the lobby, and it looks like a small museum but not like a store only. Actually, all the fragrance products are made for luxury used. This is not a paid blogposts but I would like to share the best products I’ve used to all of you. Don’t forget the “Acqua di Rose” also named the “the Queen of Water” produced from 1381 and is always the best seller for over hundreds of years.

The most famous products are those handmade perfumes for over hundred years with the classic bottle shapes. I would like to recommend those natural fragrance products in this shop because of the brand stories and the best quality they offer.  I bought the “Col Angels Of Florence” which is one of the top 3 popular products so far and the other similar flavor named “Cinquanta”. When I first time smelled this Italian brand named Santa Maria Novella, I fall in love with their natural flower flavors sofar.

 

 

這棟位在諾維拉聖母教堂附近的SMN總店,是世界最古老的製藥廠之一,裡面復古的華麗擺設和氛圍,好像只不是一間店而是小型的博物館,各式各樣精緻的香氛產品呈列在眼前,西元1381年誕生的薔薇水(又稱玫瑰水),又稱為『皇后之水』,有著現存最古老的配方,隨著時間的推移,百年來總是店裡的熱銷產品。

這一系列的手工香水,尤其吸引顧客的目光,我覺得除了『手工』和』天然』是特色之外,最重要的是這一系列產品背後的品牌故事。說起來也剛好,我來羅馬之前剛好因為同事身上獨特的香水味而打開話閘子,一問之下才知道這是義大利百年手工香水品牌,有些味道在台灣一瓶100ml售價可不便宜,單價高到可以買一些小精品,但這奢華的享受在義大利總店的價格卻很親民。

我最喜歡的香水味道,分別是「佛羅倫斯守護神香水」和「 盟約50週年京都紀念香水」,這兩款獨特的香味,聞一次就愛上。佛羅倫斯守護神是因為故事來源而被吸引,話說當初黑死病時期奪走了許多人的生命,傳道士將這些墓前的花朵集結起來而做成了香水,因此這個味道充滿著許多不同的花香。

Florence in the night

 

 

佛羅倫斯的夜晚真是美的驚人,我想,應該夜晚的義大利都是如此,下次一定要挪出時間漫步在這浪漫的地方,感受白天與夜晚的美麗。

The night in romantic Florence is so amazingly gorgeous and I really hope I could say longer next time so that I could experience both the beauty of the day and the night.

 

Duomo (Basilica di Santa Maria del Fiore)

 

 

Finally we were here! Duomo (Basilica di Santa Maria del Fiore)!

稍微把市區走了一圈之後,最後終於來到重頭戲,百花聖母大教堂!

I have to say that again we just dropped by Florence and could’t see the whole beauty of this city.  Even standing in front of the Duomo with the beautiful night lights, my camera was out of battery just at that time so that I could just use the iPhone to do some basic shots.

You know, there must be some reasons so that you will have the reasons to come back to this city again for the next best shots. Next time, I will definitely find a time to visit Galleria degli Uffizi to see my favorite painting “The Birth of Venus” from Botticelli.

夜晚的教堂打燈真是美的令人驚艷,可惜我的相機也在照時候沒電,只能用手機拍這畫質不專業的概念照,當然待的時間也很短暫,很快地要衝回火車站搭車回羅馬。

只希望下次有時間能夠好好把佛羅倫斯的美麗盡收眼底,到我最想來的烏菲茲美術館看這幅《維納斯的誕生》。

 

Love,
