Adriana Carlucci founded Ancienne Ambiance in 2004, a company that creates luxury goods inspired by ancient times. Adriana holds a degree in Product Development from the London College of Fashion and has worked for Vanity Fair, Vogue and Lulu Guinness.
She sourced the finest British candle makers and a top French perfumer to help reproduce the scents favoured by specific ancient civilisations. These fragrances were used in the company’s first collection, which featured six scented candles evocative of ancient times. All were encased in glass and packaged in Adriana’s handcrafted paper boxes.
Soon after, Claire van Holthe lent her talents to the company. Claire is a London-based designer whose work regularly features in Vogue and Tatler. Commissioned by Adriana, she designed an exclusive collection of jewellery incorporating authentic ancient artefacts for Ancienne Ambiance. All jewellery items are made using authentic beads, stones, amulets and pendants from different ancient civilisations and modern gold.
Ancienne Ambiance has since evolved to offer a wide range of home fragrance items, bath and body products, jewellery and gifts and is still the only brand of its kind to offer luxury goods inspired by antiquity.
Their current scent of the season is Navitatis, meaning 'Christmas' in Latin, a fragrance blending cinnamon, cloves and nutmeg. A Christmas bestseller, it prompted Ancienne Ambiance to produce the fragrance in Limited Edition black glasses for autumn/winter 2012.
Ancienne Ambiance supports Kids, a charity providing a wide range of support services to disabled children, young people and their families, and PACT, an international, non-profit organization fighting against parental child abduction.
Vogue, Elle and Marie Claire are among some of the many magazines and sites that have recommended Ancienne Ambiance products.
