Fornasetti Profumi

Fornasetti Coromandel (Gold) Candle - 1.9kg

£550.00

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.

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.
