Coromandel Otto Scented Candle 1.9kg
Originally devised by Piero Fornasetti in the fifties, the intricate ‘Coromandel’ design reflects his interest in natural forms, floral decorations, leaves and small animals, which combine to reveal a meticulous taste for exoticism. In fact, the word “Coromandel” is the name of the Indian coast where screens and other furniture from China were loaded onto ships carrying goods to Europe, contributing to the taste for exoticism. Later this was called Chinoiserie, which began to develop in the 18th century. Using the usual time-honored artisanal techniques eponymous with Fornasetti, each piece within the candle collection shines bright in hand-applied gold or silver against a background of carmine red or cobalt blue to amplify the colours with astonishing brilliance. Guaranteed to fill your home with both scent and style.
A wonderfully warm, smoky and sophisticated scent that captures the spirit of Barnaba Fornasetti both at work and home. This signature fragrance combines wild and aromatic Mediterranean herbs once grown throughout the grounds of the Fornasetti family home in Milan, together with the distinctive scent of sun-warmed Orris, Cedarwood and Birch which Fornasetti favoured to create his iconic furniture and art. Laced with swirls of perfumed incense, Otto is a truly timeless and unique scent that gently fills the air with a sense of familiarity, tradition and nostalgia.
