Fornasetti Candle, 1.9 kg SARDINE
Why Shen Loves It: Fornasetti's 'Sardine' candle is housed in a handcrafted ceramic vessel that's decorated with Piero Fornasetti's whimsical artwork. The hand-poured wax is fragranced with the brand's signature 'Otto' scent.
“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.
Fornasetti scented candles are hand-poured in England and made of a vegetal wax blend. This ensures a regular scent diffusion, and a long-lasting and clean burn for up to 240 hours.
