Fornasetti introduces the Malachite collection with a mesmerising design featuring its hypnotic fifth scent. Malachite is redolent of a Byzantine past filled with dark basilicas, lofty coffered ceilings, inlayed surfaces shiimmering in the candle light, and towering pillars suffused with smoke and incense.
The scent has grown from inspiration taken from the vibrant crystallized mineral, a semi-precious stone crafted for centuries. Rich green notes provide the starting point of the scent – pine, clary sage and galbanum, blended with the smoky warmth and depth of cedarwood, patchouli, sandalwood and amber. Emanating from a rich black wax, Malachite captures the heady essence of evening, a scent for dark cloisted rooms, all enveloping, hypnotic, tantalising and mysterious. A nod to the mysteries of time immemorial.
