A delightful, romantic filigree of almonds, sugar and soaringly lovely orange blossom. Created for a dear friend’s wedding, Soliani was inspired by “confetti” – the sugar coated almond candies served at weddings in Italy – and around the world. You may know them better as Jordan almonds. This is not an easy, melt-in-your-mouth sort of candy. The sugarcoating is to convey the wish that the newlyweds’ life be more sweet than bitter and the beauty of these candies is that the almonds really do have a sharp bitterness that contrasts with the powdery sweetness. That beguiling contradiction is captured perfectly in this scent and leads into an absolutely gorgeous profusion of fresh orange blossoms, as if you were walking under a wedding bower. Conafetto features an absolutely radiant version of fleur d’oranger – a touch of honey, a touch of citrus and a bounty of ethereal white flowers. We can’t imagine a more perfect scent for a wedding – but you don’t need to be a bride to love this. Any time you want to dab on a dose of sheer joy, this would be appropriate.
