Un Bateau Pour Capri by Eau d'Italie and By Any Other Name by ALTAIA: Beauty Tea: Four Italian-Inspired Fragrances That Cost Less Than a Trip to Capri
For all the vacation feels of the Amalfi Coast without having to leave home.
Despite being flooded with summer tourism; Southern Italy magically retains its certain-something. More than other destinations in the Mediterranean, the milieu has a unique way of commandeering each of the five senses. The Italian sun bronzes skin so pleasantly in Portofino. The colors of Le Cinque Terre practically mesmerize your eyesight, wondering why you chose an all-white color scheme for your apartment (maybe just me). The clam pastas and other seafood of Capri make going out for Italian elsewhere practically impossible.
And, more than anything, the smells of the coastal towns and islands are so distinct and narcotic, recovering those aromas becomes a sort of addictive mission. It’s no wonder that the smells of the South have inspired a bevy of perfumers to reimagine all of the seaside, musky and fruity details. If you’ve never been to Italy, no problem. Try any of these fragrances to feel instantly teleported in the blink of a spritz.
From the house that creates the signature fragrance of Positano’s famous hotel Le Sirenuse, this light-bodied scent is the ideal thing to wear with a swimsuit and sarong. Peach fans, rejoice! One of my favorite summer scents, its top notes are freesia, pink peony, and the perfect sweet, fuzzy peach. I literally can’t think of anything that pairs better with an Italian Bellini, cheeky bikini, and a saltwater pool.
Musky rose lovers will be obsessed with this Italian perfume. When I spray this, I immediately envision of a man doused in bergamot, greeting me with fresh cut roses and a lychee martini on a summer night (a girl can dream). This rose-rich delight is one of my new favorites; hints of sweet lychee fruit which gives way to cedarwood and an indelicate musk. A seriously sexy blend, this perfume pairs well with unstable stilettos, a non-vegan dinner and a third date.

Named for Greta Garbo, and inspired by the sea of Ravello Roses that surrounded her villa on the Amalfi Coast, this eau de parfum — with bright, blooming notes of pure rosebud and white tea — smells secretive and sublime, like a luminous starlet who's fled a public life for a quieter, more beautiful one (but then the paparazzi found her anyway).
