Ortigia Sicilia: My Newest Aromatic Discovery

Ortigia Sicilia Home

I’ve mentioned before that my favorite souvenirs are useful: fashion, food, fragrance. Today I’m sharing Ortigia Sicilia, a shoebox sized handcrafted perfume shop I found in Rome. It’s a bit hard to find, hidden a block behind the Via Corso; in fact I found it by accident. I’m so glad I did! They also have 5 other shops in Italy and 3 in Europe and are definitely worth seeking out.

I immediately fell in love with both the shop and all of the scents I tried. It was hard choosing one, but I finally went with the Orange Blossom. I especially appreciate that Ortigia sells rollerball TSA friendly sizes of perfume for 15 Euro.

Have you found any treasures on your travels recently? Please share in the comments.

    I discovered Chukar Cherries at the market in Seattle. Their chocolate bing cherries and honey pecans are to die for. When I was pregnant I threatened serious bodily injury to a coworker if he didn’t bring them back for me on his trip there.
    You can get them shipped but the price is $$$ especially to have them shipped to Texas in the summer.
    Also, monoi oil in Tahiti and almond cookies in Macau.
