Fornasetti Candle, 300g MALACHITE
Why Shen Loves it: Italian painter, sculptor and engraver Piero Fornasetti considered most objects a canvas. From umbrella stands to side tables to decorative trays, the legendary Italian artist and designer put his signature whimsical mark on over 11,000 objects. The Fornasetti legacy continues today with his son Barnaba, who reinterprets the world famous motifs onto a collection of scented decorative objects.
The Malachite Large Candle is housed in a handcrafted ceramic vessel that features the Malachite stone's classic black and jade colorings in a labyrinthine pattern interspersed with rich seams of gold that bring a glittering and mysterious aura. The hand-poured black vegetal wax features the Malachite scent which was inspired by Byzantine basilicas.
The scent has grown from inspiration taken from the vibrant crystallized mineral, a semi-precious stone crafted for centuries. Rich green notes provide the starting point of the scent – pine, clary sage and galbanum, blended with the smoky warmth and depth of cedarwood, patchouli, sandalwood and amber. Emanating from a rich black wax, Malachite captures the heady essence of evening, a scent for dark cloistered rooms, all enveloping, hypnotic, tantalizing and mysterious.
