Ortensia Scented Candle


Decorated with a classic ‘Tema e Variazioni’ motif of Lina Cavalieri, this luxurious candle is infused with ‘Flora’, an elegant white floral bouquet created by perfumer Emmanuel Phillip.

The two different lithographs of Lina’s face are glimpsed on either side of the fine ceramic vessel, peeping through the pale pastel foliage of the blooming hydrangea bushes that grow in abundance around the Fornasetti house in Milan. When lit, the Ortensia candle offers a complex yet delicate aroma with a blend of white rose, jasmine and sandalwood.

The Designer

Piero Fornasetti was a prolific 20th century Italian artist, painter, sculptor and decorator. His forte was bringing two dimensional objects to life, imbuing them with a three dimensional feel through art.

Many designs originate from his famous 'Themes and Variations' collection, which combines humour and poetry. Perhaps the most famous of images is the face of Fornasetti’s muse - the opera singer Lina Cavalieri - which adorns over 500 different products. Today it’s Piero’s son Barnaba who continues the Fornasetti tradition.
