Fornasetti Profumi

Fornasetti Profumi La Chiave Nero Diffuser


“Chiavi” décor featuring keys to  represent a symbolic landscape, expressing a desire for freedom and openness was printed for the first time on a silk foulard by Piero Fornasetti in 1945. Bearing the enigmatic face of Piero Fornasetti’s muse Lina Cavalieri – the subject of his iconic series “Tema e Variazioni” (Themes and Variations) – La Chiave Nero invites you to take a glimpse into the Fornasetti world. Lina was an internationally renowned artist  who  lived  at  the  turn  of  the  19th  and  20th centuries and famous as ‘the most beautiful woman  in  the  world’. Piero  never  met  Lina  but  considered  her  face  a  quintessential  image  of  classical beauty and as a result her enigmatic look has become the  centrepiece  of  Piero’s  longest  lasting theme  with  nearly  400  variations. Filled with the distinctive Otto fragrance, La Chiave Nero is guaranteed to fill your home with both scent and style.

A wonderfully warm, smoky and sophisticated scent that captures the spirit of Barnaba Fornasetti both at work and home. This signature fragrance combines wild and aromatic Mediterranean herbs once grown throughout the grounds of the Fornasetti family home in Milan, together with the distinctive scent of sun-warmed Orris, Cedarwood and Birch which Fornasetti favoured to create his iconic furniture and art.  Laced with swirls of perfumed incense, Otto is a truly timeless and unique scent that gently fills the air with a sense of familiarity, tradition and nostalgia.

Top: Thyme, Lavender
Heart: Orris, Cedarwood
Base: Tolu Balsam, Incense, Birch, Labdanum

Composed of a visual vocabulary that is instantly recognisable, the iconic Fornasetti Profumi scented candle collection combines art, design, style with fine fragrance that’s coveted by tastemakers from fashion, beauty, interiors and travel with a strong sense of flair and appreciation of the brand’s whimsical humour.

Founded in Milan in the fifties, the Atelier is currently led by the visionary Barnaba Fornasetti, guardian of the legacy of his father Piero, the Italian artist and designer who is celebrated as one of the most creative and original talents of the 20th century.

Today, many of the designs are considered ‘collectable’ due to the artisan, hand-made nature of each individual item. From the fragrances which are crafted by master perfumers using the world’s finest ingredients and the hand-drawn designs, to the hand-made ceramic vessels and hand-poured wax, each item is produced by the very best heritage workshops to ensure quality and craft throughout.
