With the latest of these ‘Collaborazioni,’ Barnaba Fornasetti has turned his attention towards the notion of home fragrance in combination with decorative objects.
Fornasetti Fragrance For Home
The core collection of Fornasetti Fragrance for Home (Profumi per La Casa), celebrates the Fornasetti ceramic heritage in combination with both well-known and less familiar decorative images. Together they make up a desirable group of iconic objects and decorative pieces that are at once collectable and covetous.
The collection encompasses various home scenting devices from the ubiquitous scented candle and boxed incense sticks through to room sprays and ceramic globe diffusers (also referred to as ‘Scent Spheres’) for incense, perfumed oil or scented rocks. Each object has a clearly defined purpose and can be re-used, given an alternative use, or added to a Fornasetti collection.
To help realise this dream, Barnaba called upon the artistry of world-renowned master-perfumer Olivier Polge. Olivier is one of the leading stars of International Flavours and Fragrances (IFF) and creator of classic new fragrances such as Flower Bomb by Victor & Rolf, Dior Homme, Balenciaga Paris and many others.
Fornasetti Fragrance For Home/ Profumi per La Casa is a constantly evolving range of decorative objects and limited editions and scents. Below are several examples from the collection:
Globe Diffusers/ Scent Spheres:
Incense Boxes and Incense:

Small Scented Candles (with lids):
All ceramic pieces have been hand-crafted in Italy by Ceramiche Dal Prà and all incense products have been created by renowned Japanese manufacturer Nippon Kodo.
