Santa Maria Novella Melograno (Pomegranate)
Melograno aqua di colonia, by Santa Maria Novella. The composition of the tart taste of pomegranate with an insistent powdery undertone is a Santa Maria Novella classic fragrance, used by Vesper (Eva Green) in the James Bond film Casino Royale. The bottle can be seen when Bond checks the content of Vesper's purse, at the end of the film.
The fruit of the pomegranate plant, originally from Persia, found depicted in ancient Egyptian tombs and in many of the greatest works of art, symbolizes wealth and abundance. Some scholars believe that the forbidden fruit of biblical and mythological fame was not an apple, but a pomegranate. This fragrance mixes the tart taste of the pomegranate with an insistent, powdery floral undertone and is perfect for day or night.
