Melograna Aqua di ColoniaIt is noted that Vesper Lynd’s choice of fragrance in the 2006 “Casino Royale” was the classic Melograna Aqua di Colonia by Santa Maria Novella. The Officina Profumo Farmaceutica di Santa Maria Novella is one of the oldest pharmacies in the world. The store in Florence, Italy opened to the public in 1612. It was held by the Dominican friars of Florence until the late 19th century when it became a private business. Today they market a wide range of items, bath and body products, and home fragrances.

Also known as the Melograna – Pomegranate, this classic product was launched 1965 and isone of the brand’s most beloved fragrances. Combined with a hint of musk, much like the Chanel No.22, the pomegranate dominates with a powder floral undertone. The pomegranate is throughout history a fruit of great symbolic value, including wealth and fertility.
The Melograna is by experts regarded as a fragrance you either love or hate. It would be the perfect gift to women with character. Why not treat yourself, or your spouse to smell like Bond girl? It’s about 54 Euros for a 100 ml bottle.
