The view was fantastic and different from each tower, a small city but a microcosm of life exists and has existed here.
I chose to purchase 'Luludi' the perfume inspired by the Botanic Gardens. I had been there twice and viewed the variety of plants and spent hours walking,writing , talking and listening. I had also walked the walls and viewed the garden from them and other gardens and I wanted to remember the essence of the City as I felt this fragrance had captured it so well. The quiet tranquil space of water, ancient trees, the herbal garden and the passion that exists within and with any one who creates or wears perfume or grows a perfumed garden are encapsulated in this bottle,described as Head notes, Heart notes and Base notes it contains violet, rose, jasmine, cedar wood and wood iris amongst other notes. You can read these ingredients for yourself on the side of the box but nothing can compare to wearing the perfume. It is like wearing a layer of history, a layer of mystery . It is confident , alluring and rich with an air of calculated sophistication that is hypnotic. This was the essence of Lucca for me. There are two other fragrances and I will share them with you in my usual disjointed fashion when I have enjoyed wearing them. Here is a hint.
A little cooking, a little reading, a little smelling. But this is how I work , how I write, how I read and how I think and live, nothing is sequential , so please drop in from time to time and maybe you will find an answer if you have a question, or maybe you will just enjoy the visit. But if you have a chance do visit the city of Lucca visit the Botanic Gardens then stroll down the Via V.Veneto you are in for a treat and a wisp of a memory in a bottle.
