    Acqua di Stresa: The scents of the lakeside gardens

    by Manara Updated Sep 23, 2011

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Acqua di Stresa (Stresa water) is the name of the perfumery shop, but also of a line of perfumes sold here. Contrary to what it my seem, this is not an old traditional product. In fact it all started in 2002 with a scent based on osmanthus flower. Afterwards it was followed by other fragrances and soaps, all based mainly on flowers that grow in this area. If you are lucky enough to visit the Lake Maggiore and Stresa in springtime, when the air is balmy with the scents of many flowers, you are likely to wish to bring home some of these scents.

    What to buy: The new cologne of the Acqua di Stresa line is composed of olea fragrans, camellia, white rose, pomegranate and citrus.

    Enoteca La Cambusa: Wines and much more

    by Manara Updated Sep 23, 2011

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    This is supposed to be a wine shop, and in fact you will find a wide choice of wines and spirits there, but even from outside you will realise it has much more to offer. In fact you can find there spices, herbs, balsamic vinegars and foods.
    By the way, the owners are fluent in English so it will be easy to find advice and recommendations if you need them.

    What to buy: I actually went in to buy just a box of Margheritine di Stresa, a local type of cookies, but I was very tempted by the wines, especially because I am a fan of wines from Piemonte.
