Ancienne Ambiance Goddess Floral Water

Ancienne Ambiance is a London-based luxury niche brand founded in 2004, specialising in natural hand-poured luxury scented candles. Produced in the UK, they incorporate exquisite fine fragrances inspired by ancient times.
The candles I have read a lot about but my knowledge of the brand stopped there until this lovely package landed through my letterbox.

The Goddess waters are perfect for Spring and anyone who reads y blog regularly will know that I am a huge fan of water mists for the face. The two that I was kindly sent are Ancienne Ambriance Rose Water and Lavender Water, two of my favourite scents.

I can't pick a favourite of the two, for me they do two completely jobs. The Rose water is a scent which I find perfect for using during the day and it is a product I have used whilst at work. Being in an office with no air conditioning can be an absolute nightmare for my skin, an open window is often just not enough. So to keep my skin hydrated, I use a facial mist spray.

Ancienne Ambiance

Goddess Rose Water (Rosa Damascena hydrolat) is full of natural skin healing properties. It is 100% pure, it is free from additives, colourants or synthetic fragrances, infact it has absolutely nothing added to it. The fragrance is purely divine, freshly scented and as though you have just had a bunch of roses delivered.  When used, this water is wonderful at reviving the skin and help to de-puff those weary looking eyes, if like me you have bouts of insomnia, this is something really worth looking into, it doesn't banish any under-eye darkness but it does most definitely wake those tired eyes up.  But that is not all, the list of uses is quite extensive:

  • Ideal to gently invigorate the skin upon waking, or for tired eyes: apply to a cotton pad and then to the face/eyes to revive and de-puff
  • The perfect final touch to both morning and evening cleansing rituals, use to remove light eye make-up, as a gentle cleanser or finishing toner
  • Can also be applied to ease sun burn, skin irritations, reduce swelling and treat mild blemishes or acne
  • Its natural anti-bacterial qualities help treat acne and all types of dermatitis
  • Helps to reduce redness and give skin a beautiful glow, by delivering pure skin hydration
  • Safe to use on children and pets as an anti-inflammatory treatment for eye and skin irritations
  • Pour into the bath for a hydrating and aromatic soak
  • Great to use as a linen spray or air freshener. It can also be added to the water in your iron or added to the final rinse of a washing cycle to lightly scent clothes
Goddess Lavender Water (Lavendula Angustifolia hydrolat) is full of natural skin healing properties and like the Rose Water it is 100% pure, it is free from additives, colourants or synthetic fragrances – it has nothing added to it.

As a scent, for me Lavender is one I find really relaxing.  Whether it is in candle form, a room spray or even a bath product, it is calming and de-stressing.  As well as being a facial water, I have actually been using this as a room spray because it is such a lovely clean scent, once spritzed, the scent lingers for around half an hour before it slowly fades, by which time I am more than ready to fall asleep.


Ancienne Ambiance
Like Rose Water, this product too has an extensive list of uses:
  • The perfect final touch to both morning and evening cleansing rituals, its natural deep toning properties help rejuvenate and regenerate
  • Its anti-bacterial properties help to treat blemishes or acne and heal the skin
  • Use on a cold compress to help ease headaches, provide soothing relief of minor cuts, burns and insect bites. It also reduces any itching
  • Spray on the face or pillow at bedtime to aid sleep quality
  • A lovely light scalp tonic, it helps soothe irritated or stressed scalps
  • Pour into the bath for a hydrating and aromatic soak
  • Great to use as a linen spray or air freshener. It can also be added to the water in your iron or added to the final rinse of a washing cycle to lightly scent clothes
I love both of these mists, they are great on my skin and have caused no irritations such I have used them.  They are a great addition to any beauty routine and the perfect pick-me-up for the skin. Both waters have a shelf life of between 3-6 months and they should be stored away from heat and light.
