Heaven Scent: Votivo's Orange Gelato Candle

Do you ever flip through a clothing catalogue and start to laugh over the names of colors? Honey Glaze. Bright Poppy. Heather Avocado. Roasted Pepper (which barely, if at all, differs from Bright Poppy). And the naming scheme is even worse for candles (there are apparently 30 names and counting for the violet-infused). However, for all the naming conventions, when I saw and sniffed the Votivo's Orange Gelato candle, I thought I was 1) in heaven 2) if heaven was really Italy and 3) if heaven was specifically a gelato shop in Italy serving what is essentially The Most Amazing Creamsicle EVER... Normally, I shy away from foodie-scented candles and opt for florals, but damn, who can resist fresh squeezed orange with pure vanilla bean? Not me!
