Mt. Romance Sandalwood Amenities at the Pinctada Cable Beach Hotel in Broome.
My obsession with hotel amenities was fueled after staying at the Pinctada Cable Beach Hotel and Resort in Broome, Australia. This high-design hotel located in the quaint Western Australia town that is the gateway to the Kimberley Coast is owned by the Paspaley Pearls heirs. Marilynne Paspaley AM, director Paspaley Pearls Group, is also the Founder and Managing Director of Pinctada Hotels & Resorts in the Kimberley. She personally oversaw every detail of the interior and exterior of the Broome property and it shows. The hotel is as chic as its founder.
Hotel rooms feature Mt. Romance Pure Australian Sandalwood amenities including the shampoo and conditioner pictured below.
Sandalwood is an ancient fragrant wood thought to be originally from southeast Asia 2,000 years ago. It is unknown whether India or Indonesia was the first producer but uses of the wood quickly spread across the civilized world where sandalwood incense became in demand for its meditative properties and sandalwood oil for medicinal purposes.
The homegrown Western Australia company Mt. Romance markets sandalwood in all manner of products from perfumes and aromatherapy oils, to bath salts and deodorant.
My relationship to my hair has changed as a result of using the Mt. Romance Pure Australian Sandalwood shampoo and conditioner. It has made the biggest difference to my very dry, treated, maturing hair. A very small amount goes a long way and I notice the difference after three days of using it. The curl returns to my hair with a lively bounce. When I brush it out, it’s soft and silky like hair is supposed to be. And if I don’t wash it every day it still holds volume enough for some waves.
I don’t know why products from Australia are always so amazing, but I have found this to be true across the board. Even more wondrous: the products are reasonably priced! Shampoo and conditioner can be purchased for approximately $18 for a set: http://www.mtromance.com.au/shop/details/sandalwood-shampoo-and-conditioner-duo/. I went for the 200 ml. bottle of shampoo!
