    Charlotte Rhys was created in Cape Town, South Africa by two dear friends with one shared vision; to develop premium fragranced products that celebrate the natural world whilst respecting its resources.
     
    Today, driven by Janet and Shaun’s dream, our team has grown and so has our global following. With a presence in high end hotels and elite retreats across South Africa, Charlotte Rhys products are enjoyed by tourists and travellers from around the world. And as news spreads about our luxurious, vegan, cruelty-free collections - so does demand!
     
    So we continue to work, seeking out the latest luxury lifestyle goods and expanding our online presence for customers here in the UK. Where once we held a handful of fine fragrances, we now boast a variety of bath, body and home products in each signature scent. Over the years we’ve changed premises, introduced bold new practices, been accredited by the Vegan Society and Beauty Without Cruelty and now we continue to search for sustainable solutions to keep us at the forefront of industry.
     
    So much has changed over time, but we’re proud to say our values and our inspiration remain intact. Wherever we go next, Charlotte Rhys is a brand that’s ‘Kind to You and Kind to Nature’ and we’d like to thank each and every person that’s helped to make our dream a reality.

     

    The inspiration behind our luxury fragranced products   

    Here at Charlotte Rhys, we take our inspiration from nature and innovation. The art of creating unique and luxurious fragrances, whilst supporting sustainable practices, is something we’re incredibly passionate about and we hope that shows in every product we share with you.
     
    Each experience that you have with us must meet our high standards for quality, service and product availability. To deliver this, we work closely with all our suppliers, assessing every single stage of the production process.  We immerse ourselves in the latest technologies and products which must always show the potential to help our environment.
     

    All our formulae are developed in-house at our state-of-the-art facility based in Cape Town. We take full responsibility for, and stand by, all of our products and formulations. And, when you buy a Charlotte Rhys product, you can rest assured that it has been assessed against our stringent criteria including areas such as:

    • Green credentials

    • Safety

    • Efficacy

    • Sustainability

    • Fairtrade

    • Vegan

    • Cruelty-free

    Bringing South African luxury to the world 

    If you’re wondering where you’ve seen Charlotte Rhys before, the chances are you’ve visited our beautiful homeland of South Africa. We may have provided rest and relaxation at the end of a long business trip, or an invigorating start to your holiday adventures.
     
    Our bath, body and lifestyle products can be found in luxurious hotels, spas and shops across the continent and now they’re available online here in the UK to help you relax, dream, indulge and maybe escape just a little, all from the comfort of your own home.
