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.

Bust Candle Collection Marie Antoinette - Candle 17oz

$ 130.00

This little-known copy of Marie-Antoinette of Austria is attributed to one of the Brachard brothers, either the eldest, Jean-Charles-Nicolas or the youngest, Jean-Nicolas-Alexandre.

This object is an idealized portrait of the queen instead of the evocation of a sovereign at the height of her power. The head is slightly turned to the right; the shoulders are covered with a swath of fabric for a natural effect; she is wearing a crown decorated with a fleur-delis and a row of pearls.

As one of the most famous and controversial women in French History, Marie-Antoinette was the object of many artistic representations. Many valuable pieces disappeared during the French Revolution. Fortunately, some copies have survived the upheavals of time.

Aedes de Venustas - Eau de parfum - Limited Edition by L'Artisan Parfumeur

$ 5.00

Close your eyes, and imagine yourself entering a mysteriously beautiful world where the magic of scent stirs the imagination and evokes wondrous dreams. The doors to the temple open, and the intoxicating scent of ancient Japanese incense rushes to envelope you, intertwined with the softness of leather. The sensuality of musk, the honeyed bitterness of strawflowers, and the voluptuous sweetness of precious woods draw you further into the depths of the temple.

The spicy and vivacious fragrance, created through the vision and expertise of Bertrand Duchaufour for L'Artisan Parfumeur, retains the woody, Oriental allure of the candle and the room scent, yet includes new facets of spice for sparkle, chypre effect for sophistication, balsam for comfort and leather to compliment and enhance the original fragrance.

Whereas the room spray is a more monolithic scent, meant to be enjoyed in a single harmonic rush of fragrance, the Eau de Parfum evolves on the skin over time, leading the wearer to explore intriguing top notes of bright orange oil, spicy pink pepper, aromatic cardamom and luxurious incense essential oil for a lively, sparkling effect. This is followed by a rich heart of piquant black pepper, rose, iris, verdant cedarwood and incense resinoid, finishing with sophisticated base notes of patchouli, coffee, opoponax, benzoin and treemoss. Everlasting flower, white musk and a hint of vanilla provide a soft and comforting touch. The sophisticated scent vibrates with contrast and excitement, yet comes together in a hypnotic and luxurious harmony, luring you into the seductive landscape of fragrance. Welcome to the temple. Welcome to Aedes!

Bitter Orange - Potpourri 2 liter

$ 60.00

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. 

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.”

First tossed in sheets in the back room of the Agraria shop on Nob Hill in 1970, it's best described by The New York Times as "uplifting, mysterious and androgynous in its appeal." With roses from Bulgaria, lavender from France, rosemary from Spain and rose hips from Chile, we still hand-pack each box and decorate the top with orange slices, cinnamon sticks, and dried zinnias or hydrangeas, depending on the season. Over 35 years later, people still refer to it as "Park Avenue Potpourri."

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.

Bacio - Candle 10.5oz

$ 215.00

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.

'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

‘Otto’, the signature scent of the core Fornasetti collection, is sophisticated and unique and transcends time, season, gender and borders. Created by master perfumer Olivier Polge it makes use of ingredients that are of personal significance to Barnaba - Mediterranean herbs that were found in and around the family home, woods often utilised in interiors designs or pieces of furniture created by Fornasetti.

Other more ethereal ingredients - such as incense - conjure a latent spirituality or sense of dreamscape that is often present in Fornasetti graphic poetry.

Helvetolide®

Part of the latest generation of synthetic musks (the oldest one goes back to 1888), Helvetolide® is particularly valued for its delectable pear note, reminiscent of ambrette, a vegetal musk extracted from hibiscus seeds. It was patented in 1991 by the Swiss company Firmenich, hence its name, derived from Helvetia, the Latin term for Switzerland.

The scent: Zero Gravity Musk

Helvetolide® gives off a softly enveloping, long-lasting aura; an otherworldly feeling of stillness and weightlessness. Rather than using Helvetolide® in a “classic” way to enhance other notes, Frank Voelkl boosts its ethereal vibe in a futuristic composition that seems to conjure the scent of zero gravity.

A pink pepper comet brings out its fruitiness. Cool, metallic iris underlines its affinities with ambrette (which has an iris facet). A nebula of vanilla, tonka bean and ambergris underline its sensuousness. In German, adrett means “neat” or “dapper”: in this spare, smartly trimmed scent, each element is essential – as it would be in outer space.
