I was recently invited to attend Urban Rituelle’s Launch for their new range ‘Weekender’. The launch was hosted by Kat and the team at ‘Her Fashion Box’ at their super sleek warehouse Head Quarters . It was a great opportunity to mingle with other bloggers and most importantly to meet Leanne Haining, the mastermind behind the Urban Rituelle phenomenon.
For those who don’t know of Urban Rituelle, they are an Australian made and owned bath & body company. They make everything from hand creams and soaps, to home fragrances. Just from meeting Leanne you can tell she puts a lot of thought into her products. Her fragrances all have a personal meaning to her as they are all symbolic of a time, place or memory from her own life. Even down to the design of the packaging it all relates back to the sensory experience Leanne tries to deliver to her customers.
The new collection ‘Weekender’ showcases three destinations.
Country Garden which they describe as a gourmand blend featuring the soothing scents of warm, simmering pear drizzled with sweet vanilla.
Beach House. (also an UR best seller) A delicate, aquatic blend featuring the soft scent of white musk layered with fragrant lotus blossoms.
and my personal favourite, Alpine Loft. A sensuous blend featuring the sweet, citrusy notes of bergamot infused with the warm, comforting notes of golden amber.
Even though Leanne started out as a soap company, I must say I really enjoyed her hand creams. I took home the Alpine Loft hand cream which is just a joy to rub all over dry hands. Moisturising without being greasy!
