This is the third installment of my long Easter weekend fragrance reviews. The other three in total are Michael Kors Extreme Night, Tommy Tropics by Tommy Hilfiger and Mizensir Eau de Gingembre .
Fornasetti Profumi objects are addictive. My collection has been built up over 5 years; some as samples and some bought myself. I’ve currently amassed eight candles, a Scent Sphere, Reed Diffuser, Incense Box and a Room Fragrance.
They are some of my most prized belongings and honestly my apartment wouldn’t feel like home without them. Mr. MANFACE has a growing collection and so does my mother. Here are those I’ve reviewed here on MANFACE:
- Fornasetti Profumi L’Eclaireuse
- Fornasetti Profumi Giardino Segreto Candle
- Fornasetti Malachite Candle: The Mallow-Green Stone
- Fornasetti Profumi Mani Otto Candle
The latest Fornasetti Profumi candle is scented with Giardino Segreto and emblazened with the Foglie Key Print with gold key accents. This and clouds are my two absolute favourite Fornasetti prints; this being the greyscale variation. I have huge Cole & Sons wallpaper cuttings of both in frames around the apartment. A great idea if you’re looking to do smaller feature frames; you can order gorgeous samples of most Cole & Sons wallpaper for £1.50 each!
Like all Fornasetti Profumi candles, it comes in a ceramic pot containing a 60 hour burn-time, hand-poured candle. The Giardino Segreto (Secret Garden) fragrance is ultra-green and composed of Cypress, ivy, bergamot, pink peppercorn, cistus, labdanum, maquis, thyme, cedar wood, vetiver. I reviewed the same-named Giardino Segreto candle a couple of years ago which is worth a read.
