Piero Fornasetti was a Milanese painter, sculptor, interior decorator and printer of books. His creative output, handed down and reinterpreted today by his son, is composed of a visual vocabulary that is instantly recognisable. Fornasetti conveys a sense of the poetic and magical through its depiction of a dream world filled with whimsical humour.
The ‘Ortensia’ design is a classic duo-faced ‘Tema e Variazioni’ (Theme & Variations) re-working of the iconic face of Lina Cavalieri. The face of Lina peeps out at the viewer from behind ‘Ortensia’ flowers based upon the abundant hydrangea bushes that grow in the garden that surrounds the Fornasetti house in Milan.
‘Flora di Fornasetti’ is a voluptuous melange of floral, green and woody notes including ivy, lily of the valley, iris, jasmine, tuberose, sandalwood and musk. ‘Flora di Fornasetti’ was created by perfumer Emmanuel Philip, the name behind many of the iconic scents created for French candle maker Cire Trudon.
