For Mr Casanova, women cannot resist a gaudy dinner and during these gastronomic preliminaries all senses are stimulated thanks to the colours, the flavours and the textures of the meals, it is no coincidence that he used to offer a little jar of Balsamic Vinegar to his preys as this “love elixir” could exalt all senses besides taste.
