Storie Veneziane by Valmont: A quick review

Storie Veneziane by Valmont: A quick review

What it is: A collection of fine perfume extracts, each one inspired by a unique destination in Venice. 

The luxury fragrances are deemed “olfactory jewelry” by the brand. 

Beauty bonus: The scents are stunning, not to mention long-lasting. 

Beauty bummer: These gilded scents (the gold bottles are covered with a soft leather sleeve and feature a hand-blown glass face mask) come with a very luxurious price tag. 

Overall: I’m always wearing a fragrance. Even if the highlight of the day’s itinerary is lounging around the house. 

Without a perfume, I feel naked. 

In recent years, I’ve been introduced to more artisan elixirs, including small-batch offerings, but the Storie Veneziane Collection remains one of my favourites. 

Beige perfume extracts, the scents are super concentrated, lingering powerfully on skin throughout the day and well into the evening. Whenever I wear one (my go-to is the earthy-spicy elixir Gaggia Medio I) I catch a whiff of the fragrance throughout the day and always think, “Wow! That smells divine!” 

They truly are like “olfactory jewelry,” a sentiment I definitely identify with given my penchant for wearing perfume all the time. 

Would recommend: Absolutely! If these luxury fragrances fall within your beauty budget, I’d highly recommend. 
Price: $550
