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.
Fornasetti Profumi introduces the ‘Mille Bocche’ collection featuring its signature ‘Otto’ scent.
The ‘Mille Bocche’ motif has a striking surrealist vertical lip and nose repeat design, taken from the enigmatic face of Lina Cavalieri, and is the variation n. 238 made by Piero Fornasetti for the iconic “Tema e Variazioni” series.
‘Otto’ - The Scent
The ‘Mille Bocche’ scented candles feature ‘Otto’, the signature scent of the Fornasetti Profumi collection. The scent is sophisticated and unique; transcending time, season, gender and borders. Created by master perfumer Olivier Polge it makes use of ingredients that are of personal significance to Barnaba Fornasetti - Mediterranean herbs that were found in and around the family home, woods often utilised in interiors designs or pieces of furniture created by Fornasetti. Other more ethereal ingredients - such as incense - conjure a latent spirituality or sense of dreamscape that is often present in Fornasetti graphic poetry.
