The Little Things: French Perfume on Singapore Airlines
In the midst of the bustle of travel, it's all too easy to overlook the details. We're talking about special touches others have stressed over just so you can enjoy a unique experience, whether you know it or not. Every so often we'll highlight The Little Things like this, so now you will know.
The Little Thing: L'Occitane en Provence extras in the Singapore Airlines Business Class lavatories.
An airplane toilet is decidedly not the place you’d most look forward to visiting, but there are some exceptions.
In this case, take the lavatories of Business Class onboard Singapore Airlines, which are stocked with more than the usual comb, toothbrush and razor amenities, but also with premium L’Occitane en Provence toiletries.
There, on a shelf near a fresh orchid, are three signature products from the French brand:
Cade After Shave Splash
Verbena Eau de Toilette
Extra-gentle hydrating body lotion
Where some airlines have a signature song, or a special amenity kit for flyers to remember them by once the flight is over, Singapore counts on the fresh scent of that Eau Verbena to influence by scent memory. In any case, a quick touch of the light unisex perfume is such a lovely little, enjoyable thing after what was, without a doubt, quite a lengthy flight.
Luckily for travelers who particularly enjoy it, L’Occitane has small boutiques all around the world, selling these niceties without the necessity of visiting an airplane toilet. The Verbena Eau de Toilette, for example, is $52 for 3.4 oz.
