Fornasetti Profumi

Fornasetti Chiavi (Gold) Candle - 1.9kg

£550.00

“Chiavi” décor was printed for the first time on a silk foulard by Piero Fornasetti in 1945. The foulard offered the printer-decorator artist one of his first ongoing opportunities for setting loose his talents in the applied arts: on the surfaces he was able to contextualize not just images but also messages. The keys represent a symbolic landscape, expressing a desire for freedom and openness. Shining in gold on a blue background, “Chiavi” candle is filled with the distinctive Otto fragrance guaranteed to fill your home with both scent and style.

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

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.

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.
