Editor’s Notes: Juicy and joyous, Bacca Berry is a plentiful mix of blackcurrants, redcurrants and other fresh berries. Fruity and rich, this glorious fragrance is a tantalising candle treat.
“A beautiful combination of blackcurrant and redcurrant but seems to be sweetened with a touch of tonka bean. Notes of bay leaf and rose stop this becoming too fruity and keep it perfectly on the right side of crisp.” – StephanMatthews.com

Fragrance Heritage: A sophisticated and vibrant fruity blend of redcurrants, blackcurrants and an array of freshly picked bursting berries. A seasonal staple for early hunter-gatherers for thousands of years, Bacca (Latin used for ‘small round fruit’) were also enjoyed by the Romans, Etruscans and Greeks. Thought to have medicinal properties, some might say such a fragrance is Berry-licious…

Mosaic Homage: Ancienne Ambiance Candle labels pay homage to the beautiful artistry of ancient Roman mosaics, taking inspiration from ancient motifs found in some of the most well known mosaics of the Roman Empire.
Mosaics have been used to decorate floors, walls and precious objects since before written records began. From ancient Mesopotamia to Mesoamerica, mosaics not only reveal the artistry of civilisations, but also provide an invaluable insight into what ancient people wore, ate and looked like. Known to the Romans as opus tessellatum, their mosaics were often made with very small squares, some as little as 1 mm in size and were initially heavily influenced by the Greek sea motifs and scenes from mythology.
