Availability: In stock
Piero Fornasetti was a Milanese painter, sculptor, interior decorator and printer of books. His creative output, handed down and reinterpreted today by his son Barnaba, is composed of a visual vocabulary that is instantly recognisable. Fornasetti conveys a sense of the poetic and magical through its depiction of a dream world filled with whimsical humour. The ‘Fornasetti Profumi per la Casa’ collection brings this unique world to life through a selection of hand crafted and scented decorative objects.
The image that adorns this first candle is the haunting face of operatic muse Lina Cavalieri in the guise of the mythical fertility goddess ‘Flora’; one of the most iconic designs from the ‘Tema e Variazioni’ collection.
The ‘Flora di Fornasetti’ scent is inspired partly by the lush flora that fills the gardens that envelope the Fornasetti house in Milan but also by the floral imagery created by Piero Fornasetti and taken from the vast archive. ‘Flora di Fornasetti’ is a voluptuous melange of floral, green and woody notes including ivy, lily of the valley, iris, jasmine, tuberose, sandalwood and musk. ‘Flora di Fornasetti’ was created by perfumer Emmanuel Philip, the name behind many of the iconic scents created for French candle maker Cire Trudon.
