Candles from the luxury Milanese homewares brand, Fornasetti, are pure indulgence. The Metafisica Otto Scented Candle bears the mysterious likeness of Lina Cavalieri, a turn-of-the century artist who was also Piero Fornasetti's muse. The candle omits a smoky scent with woody hints of cedar-wood and birch. This hypnotic mise en abyme design will also look great in your home.
