Kartell Fragrances Dice Candle
Dice designed by Ferruccio Laviani is a container sculpted with softly rounded edges; flat sides reveal circular geometries and luminosity. Holds 210 g of perfumed wax for a burning time of about 40 hours. Kartell Fragrances is a new brand dedicated to the innovative formula of combining home fragrances with home décor items in true Kartell style.
Kartell fragrances offers eight different scents available in four applications: perfumed candles, diffusers with high-tech fibre aroma reeds, electronic capsule diffusers and sprays. The resulting olfactory palette fully reflects Kartell’s values, philosophy, brand and aesthetics, as well as the colours, vibe and overall feel of its products. Flowery concoctions such as Ghost Diamond, Drops, Ombreuse and Neroli rub shoulders with crisp and aromatic scents like Ad-Red-Naline and Portofino, while Alhambra and Noir offer the most intense and entrancing aromas. Each fragrance, with its own personality and allure, has won its place in our hearts and whisks us away to far-off places. Certain scents, such as Ombreuse and Neroli, also reveal a classic side, while others such as Drops, Alhambra and Ad-Red-Naline bring an innovative approach. The latter incarnates the iconic perfuming of Kartell Fragrances and, like an olfactory signature, traces out the brand’s character and identity. An instantly-recognisable fragrance to surprise, greet and transport each visitor who enters one of the Kartell flagship stores.
Ghost Diamond is a Marie Hugentobler creation, Cosmo International perfumery. An ode to purity and serenity through the transparent harmony of an effervescent grapefruit blending with white jasmine against a background of precious woods and crystalline musks.
Drops is an Annie Buzantian creation, Firmenich perfumery. A luminous transparency comes from the vegetal notes refreshed by dew drops and enhanced by aquatic and flowery scents.
Ombreuse is a Fabrice Pelegrin creation, Firmenich perfumery. An homage to the classic rose and its intense, elegant perfume masterfully interpreted and emphasised with notes of peony and lily of the valley warmed against a background of sandalwood, with musk rendering the whole light and sublime.
Neroli is a Mathieu Nardin creation, Robertet perfumery. Neroli and orange flowers drench the air with their sensual, luminous perfume on a sunny day in midsummer Sicily. The elegance of jasmine lends a special touch of femininity.
Portofino is a Celine Ripert creation, Mane perfumery. The sea breeze, the whiff of citrus fruits, and fresh, aquatic and aromatic notes blend into a breathtaking view and a murmur of waves. Mandarin and green lemons, rosemary, cedarwood and patchouli.
Ad-Red-Naline is a Sébastien Plan creation, Cosmo International perfumery. An energising, vibrant blend. The red of a surprising hot pepper releases the positive energies of adrenalin with an extraordinary patchouli base.
Alhambra is an Honorine Blanc creation, Firmenich perfumery. This débuts with fresh fruity notes before expressing a warm, amber, sugary heart blending into a noble base of patchouli and cedarwood.
Noir is an Honorine Blanc creation, Firmenich perfumery. The head conjures up notes of amber and incense, while the heart reveals sophisticated and sensual flowery and spicy scents with an elegant, woody base.
Dice, Nikko and Oyster are the graceful scented candles in the Kartell fragrances collection. They are manufactured in Italy with a soft, creamy wax, and hand-poured in layers. As they burn you will experience the pleasure of ancient rituals while in your hands you hold ultra-chic pieces of modern design inspired by classical forms. They also stand out for the use of the very best plastic in true Kartell style, making them long-lasting and, after use, perfect for keeping both as containers for your smallest objects and to enrich your collection of design items. Although they are made of plastic, they have been developed to withstand any heat generated by candle flames.
Ferruccio Laviani is part of a generation of young Italian designers who came to prominence in the early 1990's when the Memphis movement made its mark on international design. Laviani's Orbital Lamp, manufactured by Foscarini, perhaps his best known design, uses color-saturated biomorphic shapes for glass shades, with an angular, tapering metal base. The Supernova's clever design combines shape, shadow and light to exude an explosive movement. His Bourgie lamp combines classical design with the modern material of plastic to give a contemporary and elegant look.
