Most Wanted: Fornasetti Scented Candles

Published August 4, 2015

Be it for your friend’s housewarming, a colleague’s birthday, or a very belated Mother’s Day, these Fornasetti hand-poured candles make the perfect gift no matter the occasion. The thyme, cedarwood, and lavender candle on the right offers a spiced, autumn-appropriate scent, while the decorative floral on the left mimics the lighter, summery scent of rose, iris, and orange blossom. Each candle is adorned with one of Piero Fornasetti’s sketches: L’ape Sul Naso or “bee on the nose” on the right, and the face of Lina Cavalieri (Fornasetti’s muse) disguised as the goddess of Flora on the left. The candles will burn for up to 60 hours, but even when the vegetable wax is gone, the ceramic jars easily double as vessels to keep trinkets, cosmetics, or whatever else you might see fit. Each is priced at $175 and available on Net-a-Porter.
