Antica Farmacista’s Holiday 2017 candle has arrived, and it’s an enchanted forest in a jar. Silver Cedar is mysterious and sophisticated- evergreen notes of black spruce, juniper, and Italian cypress are met with dry cedar, sandalwood, and rich agarwood.
What an enticing blend of woods! It’s a snowy walk through Narnia- if only that were a real place! It’s Pachelbel’s Canon in D- uplifting and classic. And it smells a tiny bit like pencil shavings- but in the best way possible!
I’m addicted to this one- I can’t stop sniffing it, even when unlit. I like to light this candle when I’m working- its aura is calming and subtle. It enhances every room in the house.
The burning experience is a real treat. The silver mercury glass vessel sparkles as the flame burns down, like hundreds of tiny, glowing stars.
Antica Farmacista’s presentation is luxurious- this is a wonderful holiday gift, especially for a traditionalist. The custom wood grain printed box opens up to a small book of matches, perfectly tucked in. I can’t recommend this candle enough!
