“Subtlety and sensuality for more than 600 years” – this is how we would describe the perfumery Santa Maria Novella! If you love perfume, you are in luck!

Here you can find colognes adored by celebrities, magical powders and elixirs, as well as creams and ointments with recipes that have been kept secret within the establishment for centuries.

As Catherine de Médicis, Caroline de Monaco, Laetitia Casta or Monica Bellucci have done, visit this shop when you’re in town... and you will leave feeling like a real beauty queen.

Rising with a smile on her face in the morning, always curious and enthusiastic to discover new places (and new dishes) in Lyon, Camille is what the specialists refer to as a « compulsive tester ». More partial to savoury than sweet (even though offering her a praluline – a delicious brioche filled with pralines – is a sure-fire way to get in her good books), Camille devotes herself body and soul to testing new food establishments in Lyon. Her radar for new addresses is legendary.
