An experience of aromas, great wines, and traditional food at Fattoria del Colle following Gloria and Violante on a sensorial trail
Saturday May12th. A double birthday: 140 years of Shiseido and 40 years of the Profumeria Nella in Sinalunga, a myth for the women in southern Tuscany. The party, organized by Gloria, owner of the perfume shop and by Violante young export manager for Donatella Cinelli Colombini, is a mixture of transgression, sophistication and tradition.
The guests were taken along a multisensory itinerary which began in the park where they discovered the Féminité du bois, a perfume created by Serge Lutens for Shiseido. This is a first step towards the magic, with witches, fairies and pixies which seem to jump out of the bottles of perfume: violate, orange mixed with cedar, ginger and vanilla finishing with cinnamon and cloves. An experience which emphasizes the beauty of the park at Fattoria del Colle and which is matched with rosato IGT 2011 Rosa di tetto. It too begins with violet aromas which then develop in the mouth with intense and long tasting suggestions

villa at Fattoria del Colle where the second phase begins with another perfume: Chergui. The wine tasting becomes more complex even though the protagonist is Cenerentola Doc Orcia 2007 a sumptuous red which accompanies traditional dishes such as “ sedanini con sugo bugiardo” and “ il timballo di baccalà”.
Last phase of the multisensory itinerary is in the park in front of the old olive mill, where the scenography is ready for the cutting of the birthday cake and the presentation of the new perfume called L’Eau. Here lemon is the protagonist and is called upon to be in prime position on the composition for the table.
At the end, tired but happy, Gloria and Violante say goodbye to the guests and receive great compliments for having organized a great special evening getting all to discover the art of appreciating aromas and experiencing olfactory emotions
