There is a lot to love about Ancienne Ambiance
, a family run, multi-award winning luxury goods brand that is inspired by antiquity. The company specialises in hand-poured candles, perfumes, face and body products, jewellery and lifestyle accessories, each product embued with panache.
For those who live in London, a visit to its iconic purple-fronted flagship boutique in the heart of Chelsea is a must, so you can see and try out the products in person. It is an experience for the senses, but worry not if you're out of town, as the slick website makes online shopping easy. With complimentary shipping worldwide, virtual and in-store appointments, along with complimentary gift wrapping, the Ancienne Ambiance digital experience is as good as a trip to the store.
The brand is proud of its sustainable and ethical practices which run through the business, including no testing on animals and the use of recyclable packaging.
If you're new to the brand, the best way to get to know the products is by buying samples
. There are fifteen products to choose from including the Colonia Collection, the perfume sample set and hero product, Goddess Argan Beauty Oil. These are perfect for travel too.
If you're looking for a new scent or as a gift for someone special, try the Fragrance Finder
, a quiz that will guide you to the perfect perfume. Colonia VII Pink Grapefruit Eau de Toilette
