Essential Amenities -- Our Brands and Your Guests...


April 2009 - Essential Amenities is a hotel toiletry and amenity company based in Fairfield, New Jersey.  It services a range of establishments including intimate bed & breakfast inns, small hotel chains, as well as luxury hotels and resorts in the U.S. and around the world.  The company’s current product line includes Ecru New York, Joseph Abboud, Poggesi of Italy, Hermès Paris, Dickens & Hawthorne Australia, and Tommy Bahama (coming Spring 2009).   Visit for a complete list of our products and services.

Ecru New York combines ingredients that are so gentle and nourishing they can often be found in the finest skin care lines.  Each formulation features a unique blend of hair and skin friendly ingredients for healthy, rich, and one-of-a-kind results.  Extraordinary ingredients enrich every step of cleansing, conditioning, and styling.
The Joseph Abboud product line captures the subtle yet crisp scent of fresh linen and has a natural appeal.

Poggesi of Italy brings a fresh approach to excellence in the bath and boudoir.  This invigorating formula inflames the senses with sweet, high notes of orange, coco mango, and citrus. An extensive line of personal care accessories marries continental flair with warm Tuscan design, creating products both urbane and unassuming.

The tradition of Hermès elegant and timeless scents continues today with the introductions of new fragrances eagerly awaited by women throughout the world.  The stimulating harmony of citruses, wood, and mint can be found in the Hermès Eau d’Orange Verte collection of soaps, shampoos, and lotions.

The distinctive Dickens & Hawthorne line of rich and varied amenities takes its inspiration from the expansive and natural splendor that have made Australia a recognized hallmark around the world.  Experience Australia in springtime and any time of the year -- Barland Lilies, Native Jasmine, Lycra Daisies, Flannel Flowers, Wisteria, Fuchsia – floral scents delicately intermingled in the Dickens & Hawthorne line of soaps, lotions, and shampoos.

Essential Amenities also designs private label, custom products to meet a client’s specific needs.  Creation of such a product line includes fragrance and color matching across the line of soap, shampoo, and lotion.  For example, fragrance and color matching may take into account the features and characteristics of the region where the product will be enjoyed by guests – types of flowers and trees, beach locale, mountain locale, to name a few.  Containers and bottles can be uniquely designed in shape and size; graphics and coloring can be tailored to complement an existing color palette – all to leave a lasting impression on your guest.   Attention to detail and a flair for the innovative is what sets Essential Amenities apart from its competitors.

Essential Amenities’ products are environmentally sensitive and earth friendly.  They are not tested on animals, contain no dyes, and are packaged in recyclable plastic.

Essential Amenities is committed to customer service and client satisfaction at every level.   We invite you to visit us at for more information on how we can assist in enhancing your guest experience.  Literature packages and product samples are available upon request.
