Have you heard an old saying that evenings in Lake Como are the most romantic ones of all?  Aw…if you haven’t heard, it’s because you must travel and experience it for yourself!  The magical Cassinella Villa is one of the most, if not the most beautiful villa in the bluest of lakes and the brightest of green meadows in Lake Como.  The antiquity and architecture of the villa dates back to the mid-nineteenth century with a typical stone style cottage. The town has preserved it’s remarkable beauty and elegance, and it is one of the very few remaining estates of rural history in Cernobbio. 

The dreamiest balconies of the villa overlook the most spectacular views of lake Como that will give your eyes a sparkle. Heavenly green plants amplify your senses and even feel like they give you the kind of fresh air you never experienced before. The old hand liqueur and stone statues all around the villa makes it the most seductive place to bottle up a vial of champagne.  Fire-lit candles seal up the most memorable quality time with your loved ones that will last a life time.


There are people who love to live very special moments of their lives with the utmost quality and style.  Grand Hotel of Tremezzo in the glorious Lake Como is one of those destinations where you can spend the most monumental time of your life filled with memories to look back on.  You won’t have to take a picture to remember it as it’s impression will be embedded into your mind forever.  Luxury is felt with exemplary service and candle-lit dinners with superb food and wine under a sky full of twinkling stars. You can explore the surroundings or go poolside in one of the hotel’s three pools with a visionary view of Lake Como.   It can also be a place where you can do what Italians call “dolce far niente,” the sweetness of doing nothing.  Enjoy a sophisticated style hotel where modern beauty and classic design seamlessly connect. On the other hand, if you wanted to propose to the love of your life, the Grand Hotel of Tremezzo sure is the key to her heart.  Love sparkles in the air. 


When traveling during the summer to destinations with high temperatures, the types of fragrances you bring should be highly considered beforehand.  Perfume is usually overlooked when packing, but I believe that of all the products that you bring, fragrance is one of the most powerful items you can take with you.  The molecules in it run through your skin channelling intensely satisfying signals into our brains which then create a sensory memory and bring you back in time to the exact moment of when you wore it.  

Fragrance is one of the most magical types of liquids on earth that can transport you through a sense of hallucination into a time machine.  In fact, it is important to pair your perfume with your destination.  Summer is just around the corner and it's the perfect time to head towards botanical filled destinations like Lake Como.  It is recommended to bring a perfume with white florals, such as jasmine, tuberose, and frangipani which are known to bloom during hot temperatures.  Fragrances with warm spices and florals stay on your skin for a longer amount of time and create the most nostalgic scent while travelling. You will be set up with unforgettable moments.
