Fornasetti Aperitivo Candle - 1.9kg

£495.00

The prelude to the playful Scimmie design, 'Aperitivo' is inspired by Piero Fornasetti's original series of sketches featuring monkeys of various poses and expressions which was used to decorate the Dulciora Pastry Shop in Milan in 1950. Adorned with a monkey presenting a tray of varying alcoholic spirits to his mischievous friends, his whimsical design perfectly captures Fornasetti's signature style for incorporating surrealism and humour. Filled with the distinctive Otto fragrance, Aperitivo is guaranteed to fill your home with both scent and style.

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.
