I was at the Fornasetti offices recently to look at their lastest candle releases and I fell in love - seriously! I have a tiny collection of Fornasetti candles at home, but they're so lovely that I have a hard time bringing myself to burn them, however this (tiny) collection of new designs surpasses, for me, anything they've done before. Here's a whole bunch of pictures of candles for you.
First off, RIP, the collection that literally made me gasp when I saw it (look, I have a thing for skulls, okay?):
Depending on which way you display them, you can have a full-on goth memento mori, or a prettier view:
Available in the brand's signature "Otto" (roses!) scent, the RIP collection comes in small candle, large candle and room scent. They'll be in-store in October.
Then there is Losanghe and Mille Bocche, guess which one I think is perfect for a blog called "Get Lippie"?
Mille Bocche - a thousand kisses - is something I really, really need ... again, these are in the Otto scent.
And following on from last year's green Malachite candle, this has been updated in a new white "Agatti" design with the same black-waxed malachite fragrance, which is rich and warm with elements of smoke and cedar:
And finally there's the Selfridges exclusive Zodiac candle, which also comes with the malachite black wax:
I need the RIP collection ASAP! Prices in the Fornasetti scents range from £80 for a room scent to £390 for the large candles. The small candles are around £120. My purse is going to have a little weep come October, how about yours?
