Fornasetti Profumi

Fornasetti Flora Coromandel (Gold) Candle - 300g

£165.00

Originally devised by Piero Fornasetti in the fifties, the intricate “Coromandel” design reflects his interest in natural forms, floral decorations, leaves and small animals, which combine to reveal a meticulous taste for exoticism. In fact, the word “Coromandel” is the name of the Indian coast where screens and other furniture from China were loaded onto ships carrying goods to Europe, contributing to the taste for exoticism. Later this was called Chinoiserie, which began to develop in the 18th century. Using the usual time-honoured artisanal techniques eponymous with Fornasetti, this design shines bright in hand-applied gold against a background of Tiffany blue® to amplify the colours with astonishing brilliance. Guaranteed to fill your home with both scent and style.

Top: Ivy, Lily of the Valley, White Rose

Heart: Iris, Orange Blossom, Jasmine

Base: Tuberose, Sandalwood, Musk 

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.
