Fornasetti Profumi

Fornasetti Profumi was founded by Piero Fornasetti, an Artist, poet, designer, craftsman, printer - there is no one word that defines his unique talent. He was the visionary whose work transformed the decorative arts scene in the 20th century. Revered for his masterful application of two-dimensional art to three-dimensional form, he adapted drawings to objects, furniture, interiors, theatre sets, fashion, magazine covers, and books, deploying humor and poetry in the way he wrapped the illustrations about the objects and spaces.

During his early artistic forays were undertaken against a backdrop of emerging rationalism in architecture and surrealism in art. Classical architecture, the Renaissance and contemporary metaphysical painters such as de Chirico were a clear inspiration, but the carefully crafted motifs that these influences spawned, and the applications Fornasetti dreamt up, defied classification. Tema e Variazioni (Themes and Variations), a series of 500 adaptations of a black and white portrait of the opera singer Lina Cavalieri, became one of his best-known works.

Architettura - Candle 10.5oz

'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.

  • Top Notes: Thyme, lavender
  • Middle Notes: Orris, cedarwood
  • Base Notes: Tolu balsam, incense, birch, labdanum

For Piero Fornasetti, a single idea provided enough inspiration to create infinite variations. in fact, much of his work involved constant evolutions of specific themes. By allowing his imagination to roam freely Fornasetti was able to constantly reinvent or reinterpret any given image.

The most famous of these, the image that inspired Fornasetti to coin the title ‘tema e variazioni’, is the enigmatic face of a woman; the opera singer Lina Cavalieri. The archetypal classic female features and enigmatic expression of Lina Cavalieri became Fornasetti’s most frequently used template and upon which he based more than 350 variations.

On one side, the face is camouflaged in the Ortensia leaves. Benevolent? Malevolent? It reminds us of savages observing explorers in an exotic jungle. On the other side, the quintessential Fornasetti quirkiness resurfaces, the face is unnerved that a bee has landed on its nose.
