One of the compelling (and delightful) reasons to choose a personal or home scent, is to breathe in the fragrance. Casa di Francesca, a new home diffuser collection, provides beauty for your eyes and well as your nose. Their diffuser collection features 26 different scents (mostly floral and fruits). However, there are also more exotic scents such as Marzipan and Cabernet.
The unique fragrance collection was inspired by Francesca, a genuine Renaissance woman. She was one of the few women to tour Europe via the Grand Tour in the late 1600s. Designer and creator Katie Borghese was inspired by the Italian lineage of her family, the Borghese, her, love of art and travel, and the intrepid Francesa. Her Italian-made diffuser fragrances and hand-crafted accessories will add beauty and elegance to every room.
A Noble Link
The Borghese family has a noble lineage (included in their ancestry is a pope, several cardinals, and a family link to Napoleon). You can feel the luxury and elegance of these fragrances just by sniffing them, but the diffuser collection of hand-blown glass Murano glass is exceptional to look at, too.
English Garden Diffuser
I was seriously enchanted by the Casa di Francesca diffuser I tried (English Garden Diffuser Set $39.50.) I wasn’t able to discern all of the notes, but basically, it has the genuine scent of a huge bouquet of fresh-cut roses–neither too sweet or too wimpy. The regular Diffuser Set includes a clear, Italian glass diffuser bottle in a classic shape. They remind me of the carafes used to serve Italian liquors in outdoor cafes in Italy.
The set includes a separate 200 ml plastic bottle containing the fragrance oil, plus a set of wooden reeds to soak up the scent and diffuse it around the room.
If you really want to go all out, there are also nine different Handblown Murano Glass Diffuser Sets ranging from $125.00 to $250.00 in various colors and shapes. The Blue Marble Diffuser in the photo, for example, is $179.00. Of course, all are refillable, and refill scent sets are available for $29.50 with new reeds and a plastic bottle of the scent of your choice. You can use the refill with a favorite glass bottle of your own, too. And a Room Spray $27.50 lets you instantly boost the scent you love throughout your home. These are little luxurious that will be dividends for the senses, every day!
*The company also gives back a portion of all sales to benefit St. Jude Children’s Hospital–another reason to try these great products.
