Antica Farmacista Candela Vitivo Scented Votive Candle Vanilla Bourbon & Mandarin

During the winter time there are often rum cakes available. Some are simply vanilla flavored while others could include mandarin and other sorts of fruits. One of the best tasting ones out there is the vanilla mashed with mandarin with a hint of bourbon. The flavor is sweet and tasty that I can even imagine right now!

Well, I am smelling the Antica Farmacista Scented Votive Candle in Vanilla Bourbon & Mandarin… it lights up and fills the room quickly with cake like scent.

This 3 oz candle is for sale at $18.00 each with 6 distinct scents at

Antica Farmacista in English means Ancient Pharmacist or maybe Chemist. To me the words mean a lot in terms of an old world tradition when everything was made with the finest ingredients producing the most high quality products the world could get.

Vanilla, Bourbon, and Mandarin is probably one of the most best smelling scents from this brand.

Looking at the candle jar, it’s made with the finest glass material with black lacquered background and golden accents. Mine had a little problem on the side, I think it’s probably because the inside falling loose due to air pockets of some sort. But nonetheless the smell is very exquisitely sweet. The little pattern also adds some uniqueness and artsy by nature.

By lighting up this tiny jar of candle my heart was instantly filled with content and delight. There is definitely warm vanilla mixed in with mandarin juice. There is also a sharp hint of bourbon in the background. The smell itself isn’t dull instead it’s very refreshing. I would suggest lighting this candle up (not during food time) to create a bright ambient mood during the day to bring a sweet smile across the entire room.
