A luxurious floral candle.



The MECCA view: 
In true Fornasetti style, this luxurious candle offering pays homage to none other than the iconic Opera singer—Lina Cavalieri; partly obscured by ortensia flowers. Exclusively created in France, Fornasetti’s original Flora fragrance is a sumptuous bouquet inspired by the flora and fauna of the gardens around the Fornasetti home in Milan. Housed in an exquisite ceramic vessel, this candle is handcrafted and decorated in Italy with 100% vegetable-based wax and a biodegradable cotton wick.

300g candle offers 60-80 hours burn time.

900g candle offers 100-160 hours burn time.

1900g candle offers 180-240 hours burn time.

Fragrance notes: 
Ivy, lily of the valley, white rose, iris, orange blossom, jasmine, sandalwood, musk and tuberose.

Direct from the brand: 
To ensure you get the most from your candle (meaning the scent diffuses evenly and cleanly) always burn for a maximum of two to three hours each time. Once you’re happy that the fragrance has filled the space, carefully extinguish the flame using a snuffer.

Light no more than three hours at a time. Burn until the top of the candle is completely liquefied. When burning for the first time, trim the wick to around 5mm and burn until the surface wax melts completely. Never burn to the end—always leave 1.5cm of liquid wax.

100% vegetable-based wax. Pure cotton wick.
