    I have yet to try an LV scent, heard some are lovely though.

    HI Robin. You can also purchase the line at Santa Maria Novella in NYC. That’s where I buy it. I love their Patchouli, by both lines, Santa Maria Novella, and Lorenzo Villoresi. Both do an incredible straight up “no nonsense” Patchouli. No nonsense in every sense of the word. They are definitely not playing around. Both fragrances stays with me until I shower. I love to alternate the two. I have worn them together once, and cleared out a restaurant within minutes, haha. I was asked to please come back at another time. My winter would be obsolete without these two companions. I will have to check out their latest offering this weekend. Thank you for providing this wonderful site to perfume enthusiasts. I finally feel in great company and not like the freak people make me out to be when I talk about my classic fragrances with such love and admiration.

      LOL at “cleared out a restaurant within minutes” — that’s saying something :-)

      I am not sure Lafco has this one yet, but they will eventually!

        I didn’t know LAFCO was carrying these … I was at the SMN boutique just last Christmas and didn’t see them. Maybe the other space just next door to SMN? Good to know, as it’s difficult to try LV here.

        • Robin says:

          Pretty sure Lafco is still Villoresi’s US distributor, as they are for SMN? Unless something changed. But don’t know what they do w/ the products in their stores.

    I love the Lorenzo Villoresi line and all his fine fragrances. The Perfume Shoppe .com has an extensive selection of this brand and I hear that Mare Nostrum Aura Maris will be instock in the USA around Oct.15th. I can’t wait! Plus, they are offering a GWP with any Lorenzo purchase until the end of the month…spreading the good news.

    The Villoresi fragrances are not in the front of the store with the SMN lines. The Villoresi fragrances are located in the back of the SMN store where the soaps and candles are located.
    Robin, you are probably correct. SMN may not have received this new addition to the Villoresi line yet. Excited to try it when it does arrive.
    I have definitely caused fragrance mayhem on more than one occasion, haha. I was not insulted when asked to return at a later time. One of my few remaining loves of life are my many old fragrances, my old movies, my classic literature. Some people choose to not wear fragrance, I choose to wear it with total abandon. Life is to be lived! :-)
