Malachite - Candle 10.5oz
Fornasetti introduces the ‘Malachite’ collection with a mesmerizing design featuring its hypnotic fifth scent.
‘Malachite’ is redolent of a ‘Byzantine’ past filled with dark basilicas, lofty coffered ceilings, inlayed surfaces shimmering in the candle light, and towering pillars suffused with smoke and incense.
‘Malachite’ forms the core decorative element of the new Fornasetti Profumi collection – an image using the classic black and jade colourings in a labyrinthine pattern interspersed with rich seams of gold that brings a glittering and mysterious aura. An organic pattern expands revealing rings of gold, untold richness inlayed in a decorative repeat crafted from original designs by Piero Fornasetti.
The scent has grown from inspiration taken from the vibrant crystallized mineral, a semi-precious stone crafted for centuries. Rich green notes provide the starting point of the scent – pine, clary sage and galbanum, blended with the smoky warmth and depth of cedarwood, patchouli, sandalwood and amber.
Emanating from a rich black wax ‘Malachite’ captures the heady essence of ‘evening’, a scent for dark cloistered rooms, all enveloping, hypnotic, tantalising and mysterious. A nod to the mysteries of time immemorial.
