Editor’s Notes: An inspiring scent which is uplifting and warm, perfect for a cozy ambience.
A little history… A fragrance of freshly cut cedar-wood blended with fresh herbs, Phoenicia evokes the lovely aromas found in the forest of Becharreh, in Lebanon, home to the oldest cedar trees in the world. The Phoenicians believed the wood of the glorious cedars to be the sacred wood of the gods and used it to honour their ancestors, a task to which the ancient orient attached deep importance. The cedar tree was also thought to be an emblem of prosperity.

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.
“It is just as described – warm and uplifting….The first thing about this candle to stand out is the scent before the candle is lit, the beautiful woodiness of the cedar notes which gives it a spicy warmness which just fills every room of the house and rather than being the more masculine scent I was expecting, instead what you get is quite the opposite” – BeautyQueenUK
