“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.
