Home should be a place of refuge, comfort, nourishment and pleasure.  Furnishings, art and personal items help to define our space, but one key element provides a finishing & personalized touch:  fragrance.

I am addicted to ANTICA FARMACISTA - a Seattle based purveyor of fine fragrances for the home.  Their warm, elegant and luxurious Home Ambiance collection of scents will add an immediate air of sophistication to any abode. The exquisite packaging includes a delicate apothecary bottle filled with fragrance oil, and white birch reeds which are rotated in the bottle as often as desired to infuse the scent that is released.  The Room Fragrance collection includes Room and Linen sprays and beautiful soy/paraffin wax candles in corresponding scents as an alternative or an addition to the Home Ambiance line.

The deliciously unique fragrances in the collection are lust-worthy:
*Ingredients are listed for my favourites although I want to try them all!

  • Casablanca: {Pure essence of Casablanca Lily blended with the exotic Ylang Ylang and subtle notes of clove.}

  • Amber: {Warm & harmonious subtle wood essence enhancing the natural sweetness of Amber.}

  • Green Fig {Fico Verde}: {Green notes of cut grass, luscious fruits, soft violet and wild fig.}

  • Champagne: {Satsuma citrus balanced with floral notes of muguet, sensuous apricot, nectarine and passionfruit complemented by sugared black currant and mellow accents of sweet vanilla.}

  • No. II. {New for Fall/Holiday 2009!}: Sicilian mandarin, French verbena & blood orange meet the traditional holiday spice scents of cinnamon, clove, nutmeg and spruce. Earthy neroli softens the citrus and spice.}

  • Aria {Air}
  • Cedar & Lemon
  • Santorini
  • Acqua {Water}
  • Grapefruit
  • Magnolia, Orchid and Mimosa
  • Pomegranate and Currant
  • Peonia, Gardenia and Rosa
  • Vanilla, Mandarin and Bourbon
  • Tuberose, Hyacinth, Lily of the Valley
  • Orange Blossom, Lilac & Jasmine
CASABLANCA is my absolute favourite of them all, and is one of the signature scents in my home.  Kept on the console in my foyer {and on the dresser in my bedroom} this soft, feminine scent {inspired by the Casablanca Lily} gives home the feel of a posh villa in the French Riviera! 

Created exclusively for Fall/Holiday 2009, Number 11 is a contemporary twist on classic fragrances reminiscent of holiday luxury. Presented in beautiful red packaging, this spicy scent is a gorgeous version of a classic holiday favourite!

An exquisite cut crystal decanter {shown above} is available in all fragrances of The Home Ambiance collection as an alternative to the apothecary style bottle.  Available in both 250ml and 500ml sizes, this would make the perfect gift!

Antica Farmacista also features Antica for the Body - a line that includes Perfume, Body Moisturizer, Bath & Shower Wash, and Hand Wash in the same fragrances as the home collections.
