La Limonaia – The Story behind the Fragrance

La Limonaia Story behind the fragrance

Our candle fragrance La Limonaia is inspired by the famous Limonaia at Villa Grabau – an impressive and majestic winter conservatory for the lemon trees.  Vines of  “Ficus pumila” fall from the ceiling’s centuries old beams and the murmur of the ornate wall fountain of Bacchus, God of Wine, adds to the unique and incomparable atmosphere that blurs the boundaries between exterior and interior.   The Limonaia houses the lemon trees from the Italian Garden during the winter season, and also makes for a beautiful and most original reception site for weddings.  During the summer months, the large wooden doors are left open, bringing the fragrant breezes of the garden inside the cool stone walls.

Our elegant scented La Limonaia candle makes the perfect wedding favour gift for guests to take home – the fragrance will create lasting memories of your wedding day in a truly memorable setting.
