My most recent hotel stay had large, fixed bottles of Rituals shampoo and shower gel which I am sure, as we are now more environmentally aware, will be the way forward in the future for amenities, but with news of Jo Malone launching a new amenities range, I asked Twitter a couple of days ago what products we’re thrilled to find in a hotel bathroom. I’m always super pleased to find Clarins for no apparent reason because I rarely buy it at home. But, the answers came in thick and fast with some definite front runners – I thought you’d like to see and please do add in your own!
By far and away the front runners are Elemis, L’Occitane and Molton Brown with Aesop and REN coming in close contenders.
There were a few shouts for Hermes Eau d’Orange of which I used to have many, many bottles as Mr BBB couldn’t help snaffling them from his travels, but someone also scored some Bvlgari body products on a stay. There were several mentions for Neom, Malin & Goetz, Acqua di Parma and Korres as well as Aromatherapy Associates, Espa, Bramley, Ortigia and The White Company.

I’d be prepared to put money down to bet that you won’t have experienced a skin care texture like this before...
The poshest vote goes to Le Labo (pic credit above to @eleanorc) with several discovering that brand in their hotel bathrooms (The Edition, New York, apparently) and the biggest surprise to me is several mentions of Cowshed which I have never, ever come across as a hotel amenity. There were also some naysayers for that particular brand, too, as being a disappointing find, as well as Molton Brown. There were a few shout outs to local brands as a good way to try something new while away.
So, did we miss any? I’d like to see sun screen included in the amenities (instead of the sewing kit perhaps) and a shout out to The Henrietta Hotel in Covent Garden that changes up the brands every day, according to @m2comms,
