Armatura - Candle (Platinum) 10.5oz



The image that inspired Fornasetti to coin the title ‘tema e variazioni’, is the enigmatic face of a woman; the opera singer Lina Cavalieri wearing a helmet with the visor down at one side and up at the other. 

'Otto' is the signature scent that was created by the master perfumer Olivier Polge, working in close collaboration with Barnaba. He captured the essence of Fornasetti by exploring the olfactory character of the family house and gardens, registering significant herbs and the woods of the interior. In the final scent, notes of thyme, lavender, orris and cedarwood evoke the personal environment, while ethereal incense notes at the base interpret the dream-like dimension of Fornasetti's graphic poetry.
