Fornasetti's Scented Candles Giardino Segreto

'Giardino Segreto' in Italian translates to 'secret garden' is the brand new scent from Fornasetti Profumi. It's the fourth scent from Fornasetti Profumi with a fusion of fresh herbs & foliage. The candle holder features Barnaba Fornasetti’s well-renowned motifs of balustrades and owls nestled in lush emerald foliage. The candles come in two designs - Giardino Segreto and Balaustra in small and large size. The ceramic holders come with a lid which helps to keep the scent longer, and when the wax is exhausted can be reused as a beautiful holder. All of those who are in the US, these products can be ordered from here.
