Poetry, illusion and a good portion of humour: objects by Piero Fornasetti have a high recognition value. The "Rossetti" incense box by Fornasetti Profumi is also unmistakably a real "Fornasetti". The rectangular ceramic lid shows seven lips drawn in black and white, which glow in different shades of red and pink.
The lips belong to one of the most exciting women of her time, the soprano Lina Cavalieri (1874-1944). Piero Fornasetti accidentally discovered one of her photos in an old magazine in the 1950s. The Italian artist and designer then chose her as his muse and created over 400 variations of her face.

But in addition to the bright red lips, a design detail also attracts attention: the small hole between the second pair of lips. If you put an incense stick into it, it looks like a burning cigarette stuck between your lips.

The incense sticks fill the room with an extremely pleasant scent: "Flora" is an olfactory homage to the garden that still surrounds Piero Fornasetti's house today. Star perfumer Emmanuel Philip composed a wonderful floral scent from the aromas of jasmine, iris and orange blossoms (heart notes), which gets depth thanks to musk and sandalwood (base note).
