naples

Naples. Chez Scaturchio, une dame en manteau de fourrure déguste une tranche de pastiera qu'elle accompagne d'un café. Un délice d'amandes et de fleur d'oranger, allégé d'une pointe rafraîchissante de petit grain. Et de néroli.

I have no idea what the above french means, but the ASTIER de VILLATTE naples candle i bought smells like a slice of pastiera and an expresso at Scaturchio. just like the best pastry bar in naples. with a yummy note of almond, orange blossom, and Ylang-Ylang. and the graphic on the box is simply adorable. my dear friend poison girl recommended me to go to this cute little shop called KAPOK for this lovely candle. and the french boy boy who works there was teaching me how to pronounce all these frenchy candle names :: giggles :: so i bought two.

hahaha. you're so cute. you bought 2 because of the french boy! :)
here's a translation:
Naples. At Scaturchio's, a lady in a fur coat tastes a slice of pastiera (which is an italian cake made with cheese) which she accompanies with coffee. A delight of almonds and of orange flowers (blossoms), lightened by a refreshing touch of petitgrain (oil from the leaves and twigs of the bitter orange tree). And of neroli (oil from the blossoms of the same plant).
