A little history… A fresh and clean fragrance, Alteeneh (the Fig Tree in Aramaic) blends woody notes of the fig tree with the fruity sweetness of figs, both highly prized in antiquity. It is said that the fig was one of the first plants cultivated by humans and was a symbol of abundance. The Phoenicians, Egyptians, Greeks and Romans all considered figs and fig wood to be sacred.

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.
