It’s no secret that countless big fashion labels have branched out into beauty. The striking boutiques of the Quadrilatero della Moda are packed with the latest collections of designer fragrances and beauty products for him and her. Get on the bandwagon and be seduced by the stunning designer packaging covering beauty products created by Chanel, Burberry, Gucci, Fendi and Valentino, (addresses will follow) and don’t forget the products of Giorgio Armani that are characterized by his sought after aesthetic and quality, and are on sale at his boutique at number 31 via Manzoni. There are also many mono brand stores like the Acqua di Parma boutique in via Gesù (see main picture), an ideal location to rediscover the innate values of Italian excellence and artisanship. 1989 saw the birth of Etro’s ‘fragrance library’: a universe, consisting of fragrances bottled in the brand’s signature packaging, that uses colour to spark the desire for a perfume and images to play with the imagination. Etro’s fragrances can be purchased at the brand’s centrally located standalone boutique in via Verri, corner of via Bigli. The eye-catching boutiques of historic perfumer Jo Malone are located in via Manzoni and at no. 13 via Santa Maria alla Porta. This is a world dedicated to the rarest fragrances steeped in British culture, where heritage pieces of furniture in shades of beige and black are juxtaposed with more contemporary elements, creating an environment where shopping becomes an intimate, luxurious experience.
