Aroma of Holidays Hit Zagreb with St. Nicholas Celebration at Martimex Perfumery

Total Croatia News


December 9, 2018 – The holiday season usually “smells” of lack of time, stress and scrambling to purchase last minute gifts. But for all lovers of fine, niche smells – this somewhat stressful holiday season just got a bit easier if you’re in Zagreb.

Thanks to the exclusive Martimex perfumery at Ban Jelačić Square in Zagreb, customers can find all the best niche international brands, including eight new ones – such as Acqua di Parma, Bond no. 9, Tiziana Terenzi, V Canto, Etro, M. Micallef, Montale, and Mancera. 


For Saint Nicholas, Martimex decided to offer their guests a dressed up holiday atmosphere to enjoy the many new fragrances with delicious delicacies and lavish decorations. 

To begin your fairytale of fragrances this holiday season, you cannot miss Acqua di Parma. This famous brand launched back in 1916 with a small perfume workshop in the center of Parma’s old city, once the aristocratic and cultural center of Italy, which Giuseppe Verdi, Stendhal and Duchess Louise Maria from Austria, Napoleon’s wife, visited. Already from your first breath, you will experience Italian tradition and natural ingredients that have won many famous faces – from Ava Gardner, Audrey Hepburn, Cary Grant, and Lane Turner to Kevin Costner, Woody Allen, and Sharon Stone. Today, Acqua di Parma counts 60 fragrances, and at Martimex, you can choose from a variety of scents including the legendary perfume Colonia, boasting the smell of rosemary, lavender, lemon, and jasmine, as well as white musk accords, Bulgarian rose, and amber.


Bond no. 9 brought a dash of New York in Zagreb with the New Bond Street fragrance, which captures the smells of bergamot, pepper, and lily. If you are still a fan of Roman classics, you will not be disappointed by the godlike scents of Dionysius and Aphrodite of the Italian family brand Tiziana Terens, who skillfully combines amber, musk, vanilla, exotic oak and lily.

You will be taken on a renaissance journey by V Canto, inspired by the intriguing story of Lucrezia Borgia, with a fragrant combination of pear, red pepper, bitter orange, lime, and laurel. The Far East is literally in front of you with the Fantastic Oud, Sweet Flowers and Bakhoor fragrances that are signed by the king of the oaks, Montale.

Look for the noble and luxurious ingredients of rare and refined materials in the Mancera Exclusif collection, or fall in love with the scent of rose from Grasse by the French perfumery M. Micallef and, finally, wear the famous Etro fashion house in style, whose passion for traveling and lavish textures shifted to the oriental perfume Amber which smells of rose, patchouli, amber, vanilla, and musk.
