Sorry, kittens, you can keep your pumpkin spice! I’ve opted for a something more sophisticated this fall.

There’s more than one note that dominates the chillier season, and the right one can instantly set the mood in a space. Fornasetti’s new Otto scent in the vegetable wax candle is a rich blend of Mediterranean thyme, rich cedarwood and birch, incense, lavender, and labdanum – all aromas that had personal significance to Barnaba Fornasetti, as he grew up surrounded by his father’s designs. Plus, the chic scent was crafted by master pefumer, Olivier Polge, who is followed in the footsteps of his father at Chanel. Prior to that, he crafted signature scents for Burberry, Davidoff, Diesel, Jil Sander, Kenzo, and Viktor& Rolf, so this nose knows!

But by favorite feature by far has to be the adorable monkeys feature on the ceramic jar, each sipping some champagne from a rainbow of goblets. There’s nothing like lighting up the candle with these party animals as I primp for a night on the town! – Valis Vicenty
