forn1The fine folks at Min New York (“an Atelier and a Sensory Gallery”) offer a fine collection of fragrances from all over the world, but none better than the Fornasetti Profumi Collection.

About Fornasetti Profumi: “Piero Fornasetti was a Milanese painter, sculptor, interior decorator, engraver of books and a creator of more than 11,000 products. In terms of decorative output, Fornasetti’s production of objects and furniture is one of the most prolific of the 20th century. Fornasetti is celebrated as being one of the most original creative talents of the last century. During his long career he perfected his art and made use of a rich visual vocabulary that is instantly recognizable and constantly engages. Fornasetti designed a magical dream world, saturated in richness of imagery and filled with whimsical humor.”

The Fornasetti Profumi Collection includes great products like the Burlesque Classic Candle by Olivier Polge (above right): “‘Otto’ is the signature scent that was created by the master perfumer Olivier Polge, working in close collaboration with Barnaba. He captured the essence of Fornasetti by exploring the olfactory character of the family house and gardens, registering significant herbs and the woods of the interior. In the final scent, notes of thyme, lavender, orris and cedarwood evoke the personal environment, while ethereal incense notes at the base interpret the dream-like dimension of Fornasetti’s graphic poetry.”
