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 it's own character due to the variation in design.
The Ortensia candle is part of the ‘Tema e Variazioni’ series, with the re-working of the face of the brand’s muse Lina Cavalieri. This design differs as we have the face of Lina peeping out from behind ‘Ortensia’ flowers, which are based upon the hydrangea bushes that grow in the gardens of the Fornasetti house in Milan. A product from the ‘Flora di Fornasetti’ collection, this blend is a luxurious assortment of floral, green and woody notes including ivy, lily of the valley, sandalwood and jasmine.
