Giardino Segreto candle by Fornasetti.
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.
‘Giardino Segreto di Fornasetti’, the fourth scent from Fornasetti Profumi, is a scent inspired by a dreamlike representation of an idealised Italian secret garden, flourishing with a rich tapestry of herbs and foliage, hidden follies and ‘mystical’ creatures. ‘Giardino Segreto di Fornasetti’ embodies the green and fresh scent of cypresses, ivy and cedar wood blended together with the dusty dry aroma of overgrown stone walls and balustrades. It has a verdant herbal scent; supported by notes of maquis and thyme entwined with the dryness of vetiver and cistus labdanum.
Barnaba Fornasetti has created an original Fornasetti design ‘Giardino Segreto’ by combining three existing motifs from the archive in a new ‘dreamlike’ sequence. The design combines ‘Balaustra’ (balustrade), ‘Civette’ (owls) and ‘Foglie’ (leaves) all of which stem from his father’s artistry and first appeared from the 50’s onwards; featuring across various objects from screens, cabinets and chests of drawers to trays, bookends and lamps.
