A Magnificent Discovery – Appelles

When you stay in as many hotels and resorts as we do at TML you quickly discover what makes a hotel great. It comes down to the little things.

For some these little things may seem trivial. But little things can make or break a great hotel stay. Little things like a working iron that doesn’t spit dirty water on to your clean clothes, real milk not UHT in the fridge, free WiFi or toiletries that aren’t like dishwashing detergent.

Some hoteliers get it right. Frequent travellers notice attention to detail. Details like knockout toiletries that fill the air with delicate scents that just make you feel good. Attention to detail is best explained by the range of Appelles Apothecary and Lab amenities in bathrooms of hotels that get it right. Appelles is the finest range of body, bath and hair care products TML has tried in any hotel around the world.


We discovered our now absolute favorite toiletries last year whilst staying at the ultra-luxe Pier One Sydney Harbour (or POSH for short). “The aforementioned mind-bogglingly good amenities are from Appelles Apothecary and are generously served up in large bottles. The body lotion is scented with mandarin peel, rosemary and cinnamon bark and the shower gel includes Australian lemon myrtle, sandalwood & Rosalina. These are perhaps the finest toiletries to be had in any luxury hotel, anywhere”.


Then we were lucky enough to find them at one of Australia’s most comfortable resorts, Alamanda at Palm Cove and then at the very chic Spicer’s Clovelly Estate.

Appelles Apothecary incorporates premium Australian indigenous ingredients like Kakadu Plum, Lemon Myrtle and Blue Mallee Eucalyptus. The delightful scents are so good you really don’t need perfume as well. The essential oil blends of the skin care products are rich in vitamins and antioxidants and nurture your skin.

Vitamin B5 500ml

The antioxidant qualities of Vitamin B5 are enhanced with certified organic Australian essential oils in a bottle of absolute hydration aka Vitamin B5 Skin Lotion. The scent of Mandarin Peel, Rosemary and Cinnamon Bark are uplifting and once you’ve used you’ll want to pamper your skin every day.

Another favourite here at TML is the Rosemary Body Bar, a vegetable soap that’s infused with Blue Mallee Eucalyptus, Niaouli, Lemon Myrtle & Dried Rosemary Leaf so that showering is a total sensory experience.



A former senior manager in the hotel trade Paul Tsailikis, conceived Appelles. He knew from his time in the business that Australia didn’t produce premium natural skin care and bath ranges that were also caring to the environment.

All Appelles products are Paraben free and are not tested on animals. All labels are printed using biodegradable soy-based inks. The EcoPure packaging is biodegradable. This technology enables microorganisms to metabolise the molecular structure of most common plastics without harming the environment.

Always evolving, Appelles has introduced the black label range to partner the favourite pioneer brown label products soon to be unveiled is a new range that includes even more eco-friendly ingredients and exciting new infusions.
