Mani - Candle 10.5oz



This decor was originally used on a long and narrow tray with a coin on the hand. On a waste paper basket the decor is used the same way with a row of hands. Barnaba decided to place coins on the lid giving the idea of the coins either being taken or thrown.

'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.
