Fornasetti Candle, 300g MANI
Why Shen Loves It: The Fornasetti legacy continues today with his son Barnaba, who reinterprets the world famous motifs onto a collection of scented decorative objects. In this rendition, Barnaba decided to place coins on the lid, giving the idea of the coins either being taken or thrown. The candle is made from hand-poured, 100% vegetal wax and fills your home with the warm scent of Otto. Once your candle has burned away, the jar can be used as decoration. Notes of thyme, lavender, orris, cedarwood, tolu balsam, incense, birch, labdanum.
“Otto” is 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 interior designs or pieces of furniture created by Fornasetti. Other more ethereal ingredients – such as incense – conjure a spirituality or sense of dreamscape that is often present in Fornasetti graphic poetry.
