New launches are always exciting and this week I was able to attend the launch of a very exclusive limited edition line of fragrances and accessories from the Sanctum Soho Hotel in London.
The Sanctum Soho Hotel has always had a bit of a cool reputation about it – known for its strong ties to the music industry, late night parties and rock n’ roll glamour. The boutique hotel, situated in the heart of Soho has just released a line of travel wash bags for him and her, along with a new limited edition fragrance for men and women as well.
Let’s start with the fragrances. There is one fragrance for women and one for men but in fact, I like the male one a lot and feel that it is a very unisex scent. They are both gorgeous to look at and smell.
The women’s fragrance has top notes of Adehydes, Bergamot, Pink and Black Pepper with extracts of Rose, Narcissus, Jasmine and Vanilla Beans. It is sexy and sophisticated but remains feminine all the same with the floral notes. It is sweet – with an edge!
The men’s fragrance teams the spicy aroma of Nutmeg, Ginger and Black Pepper with uplifting notes of Geranium, Patchouli and Dry Amber. I found the male fragrance to also be quite suitable for a woman. The main word I can think of when smelling this fragrance is ‘spicy’!
The fragrances both sell at the hotel for a cool £195 each and come in bespoke bottles that are designed to reflect the spirit of the hotel. The atomisers on the bottles makes them feel very luxurious indeed.
The hotel has also introduced a line of travel wash bags for men and women. The bags have been designed exclusively for the hotel by one of the world’s most prolific tattoo artists, Dan Gold, renoowned for his style of fusing tattoo art with graffiti. He has inked several celebs including Kate Moss and Britney Spears and has also been the on the documentary ‘London Ink’. A bit of a legend I think!
The ‘Biker Skull Collection’ for men features Dan Gold’s signature dripping skull print and is meant to add a bit of a rock n’ roll feel to the bathroom!
The female bags are very feminine and are in fact called ‘The Rose Script Collection’. I have the Rose Script Cosmetic Clutch which can also double as a clutch for the evening. Now that’s packing smart.
And at £19 it is a very reasonable splurge.
