We’ll admit it: An Italian room diffuser isn’t quite the same as actually waking up to the salty sea breeze in Naples, or bittersweet caffe lungo in Milan. But when the diffusers are from Italian scent authority Acqua di Parma, Italy’s suddenly closer than you think… olfactorily, at least. They come in two ranges: Colonia (warm and woody, in Parma yellow bottles) and Blu Mediterraneo (citrusy and fresh, in clear bottles), each with five scents. La dolce vita is a state of mind, so if you can’t go to Italy, let Italy come to you. $105 each – CT
