Saxon launches own local and sustainable amenities rangeBy *Krista North, Saxon Hotel, Villas and Spa
The Saxon Hotel, Villas and Spa is taking its renowned luxury further with a new bespoke and sustainable amenities range, ‘SOUL by Saxon’, that will be launched on 1 December. The amenities range is proudly South African, developed by local experts for the Saxon guests and embodies the Saxon’s offering of belonging, feeling at home in surroundings that form a natural extension of one’s own graceful lifestyle. The range has its own unique signature fragrance in all the products, is made of the finest local ingredients, and has a beautifully created logo and design for its packaging.
Soul of the Saxon
The core values of the Saxon - making each guest feel at home, evoking a sense of belonging, the heart of our hospitality offering and the unique feeling our guests take home with them - formed the basis of the journey the hotel took in developing the bespoke SOUL range.
The soul of the Saxon is evoked in the senses of our guests, by the fragrances, the sights and sounds they experience at the hotel as well as the tastes of the food presented in our restaurant. At its core we aimed to recreate this soul with this new range of amenities.
Only the finest, natural ingredients - locally and sustainably sourced - have been used in the development of the SOUL range. The locally produced products contain no parabens or sulphates, are not tested on animals, and are packaged in recycled and recyclable bottles, ensuring that guests can enjoy SOUL safe in the knowledge that there is a minimal environmental impact created by these luxurious products.
The initial launch of the collection will include body wash, body lotion, hand wash, hand lotion, shampoo, conditioner, room spray and soap bars to name a few.
SOUL Signature Fragrance
The SOUL fragrance was designed by a leading local fragrance expert, who entrenched themselves into the Saxon experience, taking all the elements that embody the Saxon in its design, use of textures and art to create a scent that is representative of the Saxon and the inimitable Saxon Journey. The scent is designed to be memorable and completely unique to the Saxon, creating a bespoke sensory experience for our guests.
The signature fragrance of SOUL comprises of earthy, warm tones and was inspired by the indigenous Wild Fig trees across the property. The scent also includes notes of Sandalwood, Cedarwood and Amber - representing the design and feel of the suites at the Saxon - as well as Jasmine, synonymous with the relaxation elements of the Saxon Spa, adding an exotic, rich and sweet note. These fragrances notes combined creates a uniquely pleasing sensory experience in the use of the SOUL products.
Saxon Managing Director, George Cohen, commented: “We have always strived to be the leader in luxury in South African Hospitality. The introduction of SOUL has been the obvious next step in ensuring an authentic proudly South African luxury experience, both local and sustainable, and exclusive to the Saxon brand”
