Architettura - Candle 10.5oz

$ 195.00

'Architettura' and ‘Palazzo’ are architectural neoclassical trompe-l'œil decors, inspired by Palladio and are iconic Fornasetti designs. These decors were first designed in the 50's for cylindrical objects like the waste paper baskets and then elongated for umbrella stands. The 'architettura’ lid is in style with the roof typical of the period style. the 'Palazzo' lid has a geometric-fish scale decor taken from the ‘egocentrismo’ dinner plate collection that recalls another type of roof.

'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.

    Balsam - Candle 7oz

    $ 55.00

    A refreshing and luscious marriage that combines the essence of sweet balsam, California redwood, a hint of French sage and the bouquet of white flowers. Balsam was the fragrance of Agraria's very first candle, but at the time in 1970, it was just called the “Agraria Candle.” With the introduction of the Bitter Orange candle the name was officially changed to Balsam.

    Agraria's Perfume candles are presented in a decorative crystal glass that is a modern interpretation of the woven palm leaf cases that were an Agraria trademark in the 1980s. 

    The intricate glass pattern accentuates the movement of the flame to create a luminous and mesmerizing glow. Featuring hand-twisted lead-free wicks, each hand-poured candle is clean-burning and beautifully fragrant.

    Each 7oz candle includes a silver-plate lid stamped with the Agraria crest. Approximate burning time: 30-40 hours

    $ 55.00

    Bitter Orange was the fragrance of Agraria's very first product in 1970 – a handmade potpourri. This signature fragrance is a complex and subtle blend that permeates the air with addictive waves of clove, the zest of bitter orange and just a touch of cypress. It’s unique, spicy fragrance has been described by The New York Times as “uplifting, mysterious and androgynous in its appeal.”

    Agraria was introduced in New York in 1975, at the front door of the original Henri Bendel’s at 10 West 57th, and each time someone opened the door, the fragrance floated out onto the sidewalk. Vogue Magazine quoted Michael Kors as saying, “I just thought 57th Street smelled like Bitter Orange.”

    Bust Candle Collection L'Esclave - Candle 17oz

    $ 250.00

    Pourquoi naître esclave (Why born a slave) is the name given by sculptor and painter Jean-Baptiste Carpeaux (1827-1875) to a series of busts he created around 1870.

    At the heights of his career, enjoying the protection of Napoleon III, Carpeaux was commissioned by the city of Paris to design the Fontaine de l’Observatoire and slightly modified the theme imposed on him – the four cardinal points – by replacing them with allegoric characters personifying Europe, Africa, Asia and America.

    While he was working on the representation of Africa, he came up with the idea of the bust of the Négresse Captive. Obsessed with faithful representations of human movement, he sculpted his slave at an angle in order to express revolt. The story goes that the woman who posed for the bust might have also been the model of the “Capresse des colonies” by Charles Cordier in 1861.
