If you are looking for unique and thoughtful gifts this Christmas, look no further than this GWG favourite.

With a passion for fragrance and five generations of family heritage in ancient art and antiquities, Adriana Carlucci founded Ancienne Ambiance in 2004.

The London based luxury lifestyle brand is dedicated to providing a bespoke service in luxury shopping and specialises in creating high-end scented candles, niche perfumes, face and body care, jewellery and lifestyle accessories. The brand also embeds sustainable and ethical practices throughout its business model, including no testing on animals and use of recyclable packaging.

We are huge fans of Ancienne Ambiance here at The Good Web Guide and often find ourselves drawn into their (fantastically) purple flagship store in Chelsea, taking in the deliciously scented, hand-poured candles or marvelling at the liquid gold aromatherapy body oils decorating the shelves. Their amazing jewellery range and ancient artifacts adorning the walls is worth the trip itself.

If you are looking for unique and thoughtful gifts this Christmas, look no further than Ancienne Ambiance. If you know any candle lovers out there (we know plenty!), then the ‘Bespoke Trio Scented Candle Set’ would make the ultimate present (we’d go for ‘Alteeneh Fig Scented’, ‘Bacca Berry’ and ‘Eset Rose & Lily’, if you’re interested!).

We also love the concept of the brand’s ‘Bespoke Perfume Discovery Box’ and would be delighted to receive anything from the range this Christmas. Think ‘Pink Grapefruit’, ‘Blackcurrant Peach’ or ‘Fig’, to name just a few of the irresistible scents on offer.

Also within the bespoke gift range is the ‘Bespoke Beauty Gift Set’. You can select from their extensive range of products, compiling the dream gift set. We love the ‘Goddess Vibes Towelling Set’, ‘Lavendula Lavender Bath Salts’ and their ‘Signature Luxury Bath Oil’.

When it comes to jewellery, we can promise you that anybody would be delighted to receive any item from the range. We are particularly drawn to these classic and simple ‘Claire Van Holthe, Amethyst Earrings’ – perfect to take you from day to nighttime.

Ancienne Ambiance has recently launched their new collection of stunning silk scarves, crafted in Como, Italy. These wonderfully designed scarves are made using the finest rich silk twill and sumptuous cashmere blends, hemmed and packaged by hand and would make the perfect gift for any accessory lover.
