Lotions and potions: Let's talk Toiletries


A large part of the housekeeping budget goes to bathroom toiletries & amenities. Shampoo, conditioner, soap, body lotion, shower gel, and liquid hand soap are some of the basics. The brands chosen below are the best in their class. Aqualuxe offers top luxe brands at bulk pricing.

When purchasing bathroom toiletries consider the following: from product lines to packaging, to minimums and sizes; each brand is different.

Volume:

What size do you prefer?

We recommend the 200-300ml option. No one wants to be fighting a small tiny bottle in the shower. This size is like having a normal size shampoo and conditioner bottles.

Refills:

We try to find storage solutions for you: Would it be best for your program to buy refill bottles?

Brands like Asprey, Elemis and The White Company offer 6 Liter Refill for all our main toiletries: Shampoo, Conditioner, Shower Gel, Body Lotion & Liquid Soap. Consider the itinerary for the upcoming and following seasons. Will you be able to purchase extras if needed in the other side of the world? How much storage do you have allocated for toiletries? Can you keep many small bottles for long periods of time or is it easier to use a 66Qt Plastic box with refill containers?

And the more obvious reason is to help save our planet. Think about the number of plastic bottles thrown away every year that don’t disintegrate. Make a mindful purchase by choosing an environmentally friendly purchase.

Inventory & Budget:

One of the questions we get frequently is whether these charges can go under charter costs; and the answer is yes, absolutely. This is part of the charter inventories you should keep. Our guests are paying big bucks each time they use the vessel, whether they own it or they are chartering. The price of these basic amenities can be added to Charter Costs and billed to the client. All of this is negotiated into the contracts. Your captain or CFO should establish the budget.

This budget should be based on usage of vessel for at least a season (3-6 months). The frequency of purchases will also be determined by the amount of storage onboard allocated to such purchases. After all, there is never enough space.

Fragrances:

You will find a wide selection of scents to stimulate your senses. From blossoms, citrus, woods, spring, and pepper you will find choices that are moisturizing, reviving, or refreshing.

Packaging, Design & Minimums:

Every brand has its own minimum orders to meet, as described below.Packaging is important, and more so for a charter yacht than a private yacht. Here’s why. A private yacht is personalized to his taste and may not coordinate with the interior décor. A charter yacht needs a more uniform look. A minimalistic, needs a modern style collection. We suggest provisioning with a well-known, high end brand. Your guests are staying at the Ritz, the W, the Four Seasons, and this is the level of luxury they are accustomed to.

Check out the top 10 amenity lines available at Aqualuxe Outfitting

in alphabetical order per Brand:

Asprey is super nice, a very well-known European brand for everything luxe, including handbags, jewelry and leather items as well. Let me introduce you to their amenity line. Purple Water includes all the accessories for your toiletry basket.

Purple Water is a fabulous fragrance for refreshing the mind and spirit on a very hot day. It's mostly a soft floral, with blossoms notes of citrus trees, (lemon and orange), white ginger and aromas of the sharp, bright juices of lemon and orange fruit.

We love the smell, not overwhelming but a fresh blossom.

  • 75ml x Carton Qty of 100 for Shampoo, Conditioner, Shower Gel & Body Lotion

  • 6 Liter Refill for Shampoo, Conditioner, Shower Gel, Body Lotion & Liquid Soap.

We recommend the 295ml vessel as it is like having a real size shampoo and conditioner bottle (and we can supply refills!)

The 295ml size for Asprey Purple comes in cases of 12.

The Ritz Carlton carries Asprey Purple and for a 295 ml bottle of Shampoo sells for $37.50 each. At Aqualuxe we can pass on a bulk discount.

The refills come in 6Liter per item; saving you even more on storage until the next time you need to refill.

Another reason why we love this collection.

1. Discover Bvlgari Eau Parfumée au thé vert (Green Tea): Citrus ~ FloralThe infinite vivacity of Italian bergamot immediately seduces the senses.The incomparably fresh accord of green tea, pepper, cedar wood, beeswax, and white musk notes that follows contains all the innate purity and transparency of a moment when the body and mind rediscovers sensations that are original, alive and vibrant. (per Bvlgari Catalog).

3. Bvlgari Eau Parfumée au thé rouge (South African Red Tea): Woody ~ Luminous

The fragrance begins with the intense freshness of pink peppercorns flanked by tangy, assertive orange. Then, surprisingly, the enveloping soul of the composition reveals the dominant accords of Rooibos tea. (per Bvlgari Catalog).

4. Bvlgari Eau Parfumée au thé bleu (Chinese Oolong Tea): Floral ~ Aromatic Blue

From its first notes of lavender oil diffuses a very natural blue and aromatic freshness. The unique signature of shiso leaves reinforces this feeling of purity. The heart is developed around a violet accord, then united with floral nuances, pink and aqueous, that recall the fluidity of a fine oolong tea. The blue tea accord is finally revealed, delicate and deep, its many subtle facets characterized by fullness and harmony. (per Bvlgari Catalog).

5. Bvlgari Eau Parfumée au thé noir (Black Tea of Yunnan): Woody ~ Floral

The Cologne leaves a floral and woody scent on the skin, opening with a sumptuous top note of Rosa Damascena Absolute and green notes of zesty Bergamot essence that illuminate the fragrance. Magnolia adds roundness to the scent with an element of openness and freshness, highlighting the opulent heart with its fluid, aqueous notes. In a final embrace, base notes of Patchouli and Oud wood mingle with Black Tea as they bring a mysterious, warm aura to the unmistakable essence of Eau Parfumée au Thé Noir. (per Bvlgari Catalog).

Tired legs.... Oh yes, you and I have both been there. After 18 hours of 3-4 decks. So hear me out:

I have been using the spray and I love it. It is on-the-go sort of; just spray down the legs, and expect a cooling sensation, dries within 2 minutes and the smell dissipates pretty quickly. Within minutes you feel your legs are refreshed. It is that simple. Soothes, tones and relaxes at any time. Essential to people having to stand or sit for long periods of time.

If you feel you need something a bit stronger, we recommend the Feather-Light Leg Gel by Thalgo. Tones the legs 100%, relieves circulatory discomfort. It is the everyday corrective treatment that relieves and cools tired legs.
