A VALENTINE'S DAY SERIES ALL MONTH

Posted by Felicia M Hazzard 23 February, 2011

      CHOCOLATES from around the WORLD:



        A four-part series on natural perfumers
                        
                          PART THREE





   This has truly been the beginning of a very successful year for Italian perfumer, Hilde Soliani. Ms. Soliani is a Master perfumer who inherited her grandmother’s talent for perfumery. So, far this year, Ms. Soliani has created several fragrances that received raved reviews and more new perfume creations to come. However, before having such a busy year in 2011, Ms. Soliani created two chocolate eau de parfums with one being created with roses and the other inspired by her grandmother’s recipe.


   Hilde Soliani born and raised in Italy is the owner, of HILDE SOLIANI PROFUMI. Ms. Soliani was raised with inspiration from loving family members who have a passion for perfumery…natural perfumery.


   I was amazed at the details of these two chocolate fragrances and how delicate each accord was blended to leave a lasting impression for the most astute connoisseur.






   CiocoRosissimo Eau de Parfum is a gourmet scented creation filled with delicate roses and a plush scent of chocolate that blends together evenly and smoothly. CiocoRosissimo is made with Damask rose, fresh grass, vanilla, Bulgarian rose, chocolate, cocoa, wood notes and English rose.






   This is an elegant fragrance that will take you from morning to evening without a change in clothing and that is because it last for over eight hours!






   The next fragrance from HILDE SOLIANI PROFUMI is built around family. This sacred fragrance is inspired by a recipe belonging to Ms. Soliani’s grandmother. CiocoSpesizissimo Eau de Parfum


is based on liqueur with notes of spices, basil, pepper, white and dark chocolate, tomato leaf and woody notes. This scent is a bit peppery with the sensation of white and dark chocolate billowing with calming effects like a warm soup.


   CiocoSpesisissimo Eau de Parfum can be worn from morning to evening and it leaves you with the memory of what inspired Ms. Soliani to create this fragrance.


   What better way to inspire love, then to continue the tradition of perfumery shown by a grandparent.


   Hilde Soliani reminds me so much of natural perfumer, Mandy Aftel due to creating fragrances using essences of food and using it to produce beautiful gourmand fragrances.


   It was a pleasure to speak more with Ms. Soliani about these fragrances and life as a perfumer.






THE INTERVIEW…


1. Hilde, regarding CiocoRosissimo Eau de Parfum, you have three types of roses centered on chocolate. What is it about chocolate and roses that blend so well?






These notes combined are sweet and peppery. However, it was a challenge to create.






2. What do you admire about chocolate?






The history behind it. It is coming from different countries; with different roots and taste. However, once chocolate is roasted, then it is completely different. Chocolate has a soul and it has changed my life.






3. Hilde, regarding CiocoSpesizissimo Eau de Parfum, the fragrance is based off your grandmother’s liqueur recipe. How did you discover the recipe and what is it that inspired you to make a perfume?






The recipe is very common in Parma (Italy). It uses a very rare kind of basil. The inspiration comes from drinking the liqueur in the garden in the summertime by sunset and in the winter time drinking it after lunch or dinner around the table with family and good friends.

  2. I'd like to know why her fragrances are so hard to find? So far Luckyscent seems to be the only place I can find them. I received a sample I really liked, but it is sold out and I can't find it anywhere else online

The word "belles lettres" is a French phrase meaning "beautiful or "fine writing. Since this is a term to describe a category of writing, this will pertain to my passion about fragrances. I will review niche,natural, artisan and designer perfumes from all over the world. I write with passion but will use my journalistic skills that I obtained in college. Not only will I feature fragrances but I will feature new books on fragrances/perfumes, fragrance events and interview authors and perfumers.


I hope you take this journey with me and begin your own passion for the ART OF PERFUMERY!
