The FORGO HOME gift kit includes a flameless fragrance, reed diffusers, a scented candle and a hand cream. Both a fragrance kit and miniature sculptures, the product set boasts an exceptional decorative appeal due to Forgo’s interior design background. Adopting a sculptural form instead of a traditional one, the containers, which combine decorative and functional properties, make the product kit more memorable compared with other similar products in the market.



The design of the flameless fragrance reveals the ingenuity of function and aesthetics. The curved bottom line of the container endows the liquid fragrance with a visible form, and becomes an exquisite home decoration as well. The body of the container inherits the essence of the art-deco style of Shanghai architecture — which features a sense of order and symmetrical lines, to present an elegant and exquisite artistic taste. Made of glass, the container is reminiscent of the scene where the sunlight is shed through the stained glass of old Shanghai houses, which appears iridescent and dreamy.



The container of the scented candle is designed in the same shape as that of the flameless fragrance, making the two more integral. Its base is more simplified with a purer curvature, and its body is shorter than the flameless fragrance’s container. The scented candle’s container has a darker base, to emphasize the color gradation and meanwhile add a bit of playfulness.

The hand cream comes in a hard aluminum tube, a special material that leaves a mark every time the user squeezes it. By keeping a record of each use, it bears testimony to the user’s connection with the brand. The round cap is made from wood, with a cotton label strip, showing the natural, skin-friendly feel of the product that aims to take care of the hands.



The design respects local culture and materials, and cares about environmental protection and material reuse. It endows the product containers with the flexibility to suit different scenarios, such as being used as fragrance container, vase, or decorative ornament for a long time.
