Perfume scented candles with scents based on antiquity

by 25 May 2011

The luxury perfumes industry is constantly in search of new and innovative fragrances, but there is also a growing interest in the fragrances of the past. What were Ancient Egyptian perfumes like? An answer is provided by Ancienne Ambiance, specializing in luxury scented candles and luxury goods inspired by antiquity. The London-based company recreated authentic aromas for a collection of exclusive scented candles blended with the finest natural fragrance oils. Formulated in France, each fragrance allows you to step back in time and experience the scents preferred by the Ancient Romans, Egyptians, Greeks, Persians, Assyrians and Phoenicians.

Ancienne Ambiance’s approach is based on producing superior quality, as quality is the most important element to consider when purchasing luxury goods, especially a luxury candle. Thoroughly delicious and full of fragrance (which lasts the whole way through), all Ancienne Ambiance candles are hand-poured in the United Kingdom using a superior beeswax blend and lead-free wicks. Each candle has a super-long burning time and is beautifully presented in signature gift-boxes (including complimentary matches for UK deliveries), and they burn cleanly and evenly, right to the bottom.

Soon after the success of the unique fragranced candle collection, Ancienne Ambiance enlisted the creativity of jeweller Claire van Holthe to develop a collection of fabulous jewellery with a difference, using authentic beads and amulets from different ancient civilizations, some dating back to 3,000 BC! Claire van Holthe, who enjoys her own strong following of elite clientele including celebrities, created one- of-a-kind pieces that capture the essence of ancient design themes, with a modern design sense and an eye to wearability... as one journalist put it “vintage accessories to the extreme!”.

Ancienne Ambiance has since expanded its offerings with luxury home fragrance gift sets and introduced other goods such as room sprays, candle accessories, fabulous replica Grecian jewellery, scented pillar candles, unscented ‘Church’ candles and Goddess-inspired bath and body products.
