The Magic of the Floral Perfumery

Palma & Shane’s parfum and flower shop in downtown Victoria transports visitors deep into memories and beloved destinations.

Zingaro Floral Perfumery could well be a time machine. The small boutique is tucked within a historic building on Johnson Street, The space is an Instagramer’s daydream, filled with the kind of whimsical treasures that evoke a mix of old-world elegance and eclectic design.

Built in 1890 to house the H. Saunders Grocery and Liquor Store, Zingaro feels as though it’s always occupied the space — despite opening in June of 2021.

The temporal essence of the shop is undoubtedly thanks to its founder’s rich roots among the flowers and the dirt. Born and raised in Ireland, Palma spent her formative years wandering her mother’s and her grandmother’s gardens.

The beauty of nature stayed with her, even as she boarded a boat at just 17 for Europe. Exploring the streets, she happened upon a small florist shop run by a famous floral designer, Under his tutelage, Palma became a floral designer, helping make arrangements for some of the most esteemed Hotels and households in the city,

Zingaro floral perfumery is filled with flowers and Parfum of times past , and luxurious pieces that are curated thoughtfully to fill your home and you with beauty.

We don’t normally divulge the stories that influenced our Parfum collection, because it is deeply personal and each person will make their own memories around the scent they choose,” said Palma.

But should you catch us on a day of reminiscing, ask us about Villa Irlanda You might just learn how this playful scent comes from her parental roots, from the town where her dad grew up, where citrus orchards abound and the primal strength of oakmoss remains.

Or don’t and make your own memories. But definitely go, smell, and discover the magic of scent and florals at our store.

So far I have bought 3 fragrances
from Palma's very charming shop.
They have each been refreshing,
timeless, natural, complex, and
inoffensive to people around me.
They also last all day.
Highly recommended.
