Fornasetti Profumi

Fornasetti Ortensia Candle - 900g


Bearing the enigmatic face of Piero Fornasetti’s muse Lina Cavalieri – the subject of his iconic series “Tema e Variazioni” (Themes and Variations) – ‘Ortensia’ is decorated with an abundance of hydrangea flowers found within the grounds of the Fornasetti house in Milan. 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 beautiful Flora fragrance, Ortensia is 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.
