Fornasetti Ortensi Candle

A painter, sculptor, and interior decorator, Piero Fornasetti is celebrated as one of the most original and versatile artists of the 20th century. Inspired by imagery and color, Fornasetti created a distinctively whimsical aesthetic with an emphasis on variations of core themes.

The Ortensia candle is decorated with the face of Fornasetti's muse, opera singer Lina Cavalieri concealed beneath a bouquet of tonal-blue and pink hydrangeas.

100% vegetable-based candle, in a special limited edition floral scent with notes of lily, tuberose and jasmine. Made by master candle makers at Cire Trudon atelier.

Measures 6" tall x 3.5" in diameter, with a burn time of 60 hours.
