Fornasetti Profumi’s best-selling Flora scent also created by Emmanuel Philip returns this fall with Ortenisa, a dual-faced design. Ortensia takes inspiration from the hydrangea shrubs that grow in the Via Bazzini garden at the Fornasetti estate in Milan. On one side, the face is camouflaged in the Ortensia leaves. Benevolent? Malevolent? It reminds us of savages observing explorers in an exotic jungle. On the other side, the quintessential Fornasetti quirkiness resurfaces, the face is unnerved that a bee has landed on its nose.

Care: Center and straighten the wick after blowing out your candle. Burn candles in a well-ventilated room. Keep the wax pool clear of wick trimmings, matches, and debris. Keep burning candles away from drafts, vents, fans, or air currents. Before re-lighting a candle, let the candle cool completely. Burn regular-sized candles for 3-4 hours at a time. Burn candles in an ambient of 65-75° F. When burning multiple candles, place at least 8 inches apart. If a candle is burning unevenly and the wick is centered, it’s in a draft.
