More than a candle, this scented decorative object was born of passion. Piero Fornasetti was a Milanese painter, sculptor, and interior decorator most recognized for his designs featuring the face of his muse, opera singer Lina Cavalieri. This candle features a striking image of her nose and lips.

Made in Italy and the U.K., each ceramic, hand-decorated vessel is hand poured with 100% vegetal wax, which enables a good, clean burn as well as perfect diffusion of the scent. Bacio’s balsam scent of thyme, cedar wood and incense evokes the interior of Fornasetti’s Mediterranean home.

Each gift-boxed candle is stamped underneath with the Fornasetti seal and is an authentic collectible. The vessel may be repurposed after the candle is gone. Use it as a vase, jewelry box, pen or paint brush holder, or display it as an art object.

Burn time of candle is 60 hours; burn for a maximum of 3 hours at a time. Do not burn until wick reaches the very bottom of the candle.
