Discover the Mediterranean scents with the Olivetta Elisir wedding favour
The Elisir collection changes its look and tells of love with seven new colours
What is the Olivetta Elisir wedding favour?
The Elisir collection is a line of wedding favour that Olivetta has designed to pay homage to some aromas and fragrances of the Mediterranean scrub.
Besides its very original design, the main feature of our wedding favours is that of containing extra virgin olive oil, produced in Puglia from Coratina monucultivar olives from our Murgia Dei farm. Compared to the other collections, Classic, De Lux and Serena, the Elisir wedding favours contains a flavoured oil available in four different fragrances: chilli, orange, lemon, and basil.
The idea behind this collection is to transform the oil from a condiment to a real ingredient, making it an increasingly versatile and fun product to use in the kitchen.
With the Elisir collection, our wedding favour becomes completely customizable for the spouses, in the choice of the exterior design and the content, and in the fall of 2022, it is renewed again with new colours that are added to the four already available.
Elisir Olivetta: a love story in colour
Love is the common thread that connects all the Olivetta collections. Love is the beating heart of our work, that attractive force that every year allows us to meet new couples of spouses and participate in their most beautiful and unforgettable day.
To present the restyling of the Olivetta Elisir we decided to tell a love story, celebrated in all its nuances.
Once again, we are catapulted into the Apulian countryside, the cradle of all our stories and Olivetta’s wedding favours. The protagonists of the new commercial are the carefree smiles of two girls, whom we ideally decided to call Serena (see her story here) and Elisa.
The commercial, realised in Autumn 2022, tells the moment in which they reunited, finally ready to experience the love that unites them from their childhood.
And the sensory stimulus of taste and smell, represented by Olivetta Elisir, is the bridge that unites the images of Serena and Elisa as children with their happy present as adult women.
In this context, the seven shades proposed for the restyling of the Olivetta Elisir collection become the symbolic colour of love free from any prejudice.
The new collection of Olivetta Elisir wedding favours: let’s discover the colours
Like the other collections, the Olivetta Elisir is a terracotta jar entirely handmade by an Apulian master potter. The characteristic shape of the olive is also evident in this jar, while inside the traditional extra virgin olive oil is replaced by oil flavoured with chilli, orange, basil, and lemon.
In Autumn 2022, the Elisir collection is renewed and presents to the spouses seven new colours: blue, green, purple, red, orange, yellow, and light blue. The choice of these colours is aimed at enhancing the sensory stimulus of the flavoured oil, recalling the nuances of the Mediterranean and Apulian landscapes.
Olivetta Elisir brings the flavoured oil to the table
The sensory character of the Olivetta Elisir wedding favours is reflected in the sense of sight and taste. In these wedding favours, the taste of the authentic extra virgin olive oil is enriched with fragrances and aromas typical of the Mediterranean diet.
Chilli-flavoured oil is one of those preparations that are part of the typical homemade preserves, a tradition that is still deeply rooted in Puglia. The strong flavour of this oil makes it the ideal condiment for simple and lean dishes.
Basil is another characteristic condiment of Italian cuisine. Its curved and fragrant leaves colour the dishes of our tradition green and are the key ingredient for the Genoese pesto. In addition, there is no window or balcony in Italy that does not host a plant of basil during the summer, to be at hand and always fresh. We could not dedicate one of our flavoured oils to this plant, so simple but fundamental for the gastronomic habits of each of us.
Lemon-flavoured oil and orange-flavoured oil
In our review of flavoured oils, the tribute to citrus could not be missing. Lemon-flavoured oil and orange-flavoured oil add a fresh and a delicate scent to the cuisine. A few drops of these two oils are enough to reinvent traditional recipes and experiment with new ones.
Olivetta Elisir wedding favour: colour and scents of Puglia
With the Elisir collection, we wanted to give a new shape to the most authentic and traditional colours and scents of Puglia, transforming the sensory stimuli of this magical region into a wedding gift and an unforgettable memory.
