Eau de Cologne
Officina Profumo-Farmaceutica di Santa Maria Novella’s Caprifoglio fragrance has a single floral note that is both sweet and fresh. The common name caprifolium has Latin roots from two terms: “capra” (goat) and “folium” (leaf), probably deriving from the fact that goats feed on the leaves of plants like honeysuckle. Honeysuckle symbolizes a “sweet disposition”, and also bonds of love, since honeysuckle entwines itself around anything it encounters. In the legend of Tristan and Iseult two trees, hazel and honeysuckle, are described as growing out of their graves and intertwining their branches so that they cannot be parted without bringing about the death of both. Neither exists independently of the other.
