In Love with Fornasetti Candles

IMG_9805

Piero Fornasetti was an illustrious sculptor, interior designer, graphic artist and painter, immortalizing muse Lina Cavalieri in his work. Continuing the tradition, his son Barnaba and perfumer Olivier Polge have created evocative home fragrances, beautifully housed in handcrafted ceramic vessels.

Perfect to have on your parlor coffee table! Those scented candles smell truly amazingly, my favourites! Keep the ceramic vessels as they make a beautiful ornament for your home even after the 60-hours burn time has elapsed.

Luxury Autumn Weekend

Autumn Weekend

Boost your autumn weekend with a last-minute treat from this edit. After four weeks of fashion craziness, I finally slept in in my beloved satin-crepe pajama seticon by Donna Karan Sleepwear. Today, I will enjoy to the fullest in this cozy bleached out slub jersey jumpsuit iconby Eberjey.

While the amazing smell of a scented candle iconby Fornasetti starts already filling my living room, I snuggle on the couch with this hardcover book ‘The World According to Karliconpublished by Thames & Hudson and listen to the 53 Sound iconby Visionaire. Later I will treat myself with my beloved jasmine and lily healing mask by Chantecaille and prepare some posts for next week. Pure heaven! And no photos today….

LoL, Sandra

Let me introduce you to my latest beauty musts. It is all about roses…

1 Flora rose, iris and orange blossom scented candleicon by FORNASETTI
My first step of a beauty routine is the calming scent of a candle. This one I love. Its delicate aroma of white rose and jasmine, inspired by the Fornasetti gardens in Milan is divine. I like to keep the ceramic vessel to store jewelry and small trinkets.

Rose de Vie – Sérum Délicat, 30ml iconby DR. SEBAGH
Lightweight and beautifully scented, this serum is the quickest way to a fresh and youthful glow.
