Love/Hate With Antica Farmacista

Antica-Farmacista-Le-Parfum-Vanilla,-Bourbon-&-Mandarin-2 This ANTICA FARMACISTA perfume has been a yes and no for me. I absolutely love the combo of notes but it just doesn’t seem to last on me most of the time. I don’t think it has anything to do with the actual formula as their frags are created with a high percentage of essential oils so it should last on the skin, right? I just don’t have the answer but I feel the scent is so fab, it’s worth mentioning.

It’s their Le Parfum in Vanilla, Bourbon & Mandarin and highlights vanilla, mandarin of Sicily, and citrus.

Upon spraying, it opens heavy with vanilla and spiked with a little orange and the bourbon unsweetens the mix. I read a review of someone saying this one smelled like a creamsicle and while I don’t agree 100%, I can  kinda see where they would say that. $62/1.7oz @

Holiday Pick - More Ambiance

Xmas_6Anticachampagnehighres_3I’m giving a lot of these this season. ANTICA FARMACISTA Home Ambiance Perfume ($88/16.9oz @ is such a nifty gift to give any host this season. This renowned Italian apothecary really pays attention to detail and delivers quality and they are really growing in popularity. The antique-like bottles house unique scents that you uncork, place the wooden reeds in the oils and moments later you have a subtly scents area. And their new scent, Champagne, is a festive delight that will get you through the New Year with parties you are attending.
