"L'Elisir d'Amore" Romantic Candle
"Elixir of Love" Romantic Candle
We were inspired by Donizetti's L'Elisir d'Amore opera about a poor peasant who falls in love with a beautiful and wealthy landowner. Unable to summon the courage to express his feelings, he buys a bottle of special elixir from a traveling medicine man. The 'elisir' works its magic and true love wins out.
The Met Opera Shop's exclusive 'elixir' includes this lovely soy candle with a soft champagne scent. It comes in a durable cardboard box sturdy enough for mailing your own true love.

L’Elisir d’Amore premiered at Milan’s Teatro Cannobiana in 1832. The opera is quintessential Donizetti, and one of the composer’s greatest popular successes. Nemorino, a poor peasant is in love with Adina, a wealthy landowner. Unable to summon the courage to express his feelings, he buys a bottle of special elixir from a traveling medicine man. Unbeknownst to Nemorino, the bottle holds nothing but Bordeaux wine, but the ‘Elisir’ works some magic nevertheless.
