The "Metafisica" scented candle by Fornasetti Profumi shows the Italian artist Piero Fornasetti's very own understanding of design: a mixture of dream, nostalgia and irony makes each of his objects unique. The ceramic vessel is adorned with a picture of Fornasetti's muse Lina Cavalieri. Lina was an Italian opera singer and was considered "the most beautiful woman in the world" at the beginning of the 20th century.

The Italian designer never met Lina Cavalieri, but in 1952 discovered a photograph of her by chance in a French magazine from the turn of the century. Piero Fornasetti immortalized Lina Cavalieri in hundreds of variations. The "Metafisica" scented candle also picks up the topos of the eyes as a "window of the soul".

Shortly after lighting, the wonderfully warm, smoky and refined "Otto" fragrance unfolds. Inspired by the herbs in Piero Fornasetti's garden and the wood of the furniture in his house, it is a blend of the spicy aromas of thyme and lavender and the heavy notes of cedar wood and frankincense.

If the "Metafisica" scented candle by Fornasetti Profumi has burned down after a burning time of about 60 hours, its second mission starts: it makes a beautiful decorative vessel. The scented candle is a beautiful present for a birthday or Christmas as well as a wonderful gift for a guest. "Metafisica" is lavishly packaged in a cardboard box that adorns Fornasetti's trademark, the keyhole.
