Editor’s Notes: A powder-like scent with sensual and comforting effects.

“You can do no better than seek the comfort of Romana” – Suzy Nightingale, CentMagazine.co.uk
Fragrance Heritage: A dry and soft aromatic, this fragrance has natural amber tones with powerful diffusive character. Ambergris resin was favoured by Roman Emperors and was considered rare and costly, found cast upon the seashore. The trade of fragrance created an incredible frenzy in Rome, and the Romans used it with indulgence. Rome became the centre for perfumers who supplied the entire society including senators and mayors, with divine blends of amber scents.

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.
