Smell is the sense most closely tied to memory, a fact that students exploit by studying in Italian restaurants before dipping math tests in marinara. Sniff out memorable scents with today's Groupon from Antica Farmacista. Choose between the following options:
- For $29, you get a 250-milliliter Home Ambiance Fragrance in your choice of scent (a $62 value).
- For $25, you get $50 worth of products.
Hyped by a cornucopia of media outlets, Antica Farmacista extends the reed-diffuser concept it brought to the United States in 2003 to a range of fragrant products for the home and body. Treat an obedient den or stuffy bathysphere to an antique-inspired apothecary bottle filled with one of 18 signature fragrances. Aria arrives loaded with citrus notes, green accents, and floral treble clefs, and the Vanilla, Bourbon & Mandarin Collection mixes a trio of heady scents into a singularly rich aroma. Each bottle disseminates its nasal niceties through an open neck with white birch reeds.
Antica Farmacista continues its aromatic mastery with other offerings for the home and body. Douse abodes in room spray ($28), or air out bods with a bath and shower wash ($25), each available in a selection of the odor outfit's signature fragrances.
