I would have been a very bad perfumista if, when possible, I wouldn’t had visited the only different perfume shop in town where I was staying. In Rovinj, it was a little shop called Profumo di Rovigno where I spent more money than I expected, all thanks to the lovely owner and her products.
There are only two perfumes, the woman and man variant of Profumo di Rovigno and I admit that the woman version is a really nice floral. It contains the synthetic musks I have a problem with, but I still liked it a lot and thought is was extremely reasonably priced for the perfume you got (it’s been a while but I think it was around 30 Euros for 100ml).
The things I bought were a home perfume with the note of oud – La Notte di S. Lorenzo, a herbal/floral refreshing water Aqua di Rovigno and several soaps. There is something for everyone in that shop, I dare you go there and leave empty-handed. 😉
I thouroughly enjoyed my experience and almost succumbed to the amazingly beautifl silk scarves they have (that would be the only reason to advise anyone to not go there – they might succumb to silky temptation).
Still, if you’re ever in Rovinj, go visit the store, it’s definitely a place to see and smell and enjoy your senses, both scentual and sensual.
You can check more of what they have on offer on their site.

What a sweet shop.
It really is! 🙂
Those soaps look amazing, Ines. What scents (in the soaps) did you get?
Well, I got 4. 🙂 Marigold, olive, propolis and neem oil.
My eye was especially drawn to the soaps too, with their amazingly perky ribbons! They look like the blades of helicopter almost, as though the whole flock might take off? Or whatever the collective noun for soap may be. 😉
Ha,ha! A flock of soaps. 😀 I like that.
