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 @ saks.com.
