Fornasetti candles are famous for their brilliant designs - complete mixes of humour, allusions and metaphors are combined together to create a colourful and dreamlike visual. Each candle is unique and becomes its own character due to the variation in design.
The Aperitivo design takes inspiration from 1950s surrealism, depicting a series of mischievous monkeys enjoying an aperitif, to ‘open the stomach’, before a bountiful feast. Hand painted in vibrant colours, this eclectic design sits a top an ivory background, allowing it to burst into life. As part of the Otto range, this wonderfully warm, smoky and sophisticated scent combines wild and aromatic Mediterranean herbs once grown throughout the grounds of the Fornasetti family home in Milan, together with the distinctive scent of sun-warmed Orris, Cedarwood and Birch.
