Brand Focus - Ortigia

Posted on December 06 2015


Ortigia is a small Italian soap and scent company founded in Sicily in 2006 by Sue Townsend. The luxurious range of soaps, scents, creams, candles and lotions are formulated using natural products indigenous to Sicily and inspired by the aesthetics, colours and scents of Italy’s most historic and tropical region.

The perfumes are distilled from the flowers of Sicily by master perfumer, Lorenzo Villoresi. The base of all the products is natural perfume and natural ingredients: olive oil, vegetable glycerine, and organic colours. Paraben-free,the range uses traditional products with modern ethics and integrity.



All Ortigia products are made by small family companies who pride themselves on the quality of their products. The highly decorative packaging is designed by Sue Townsend and draws on exotic Sicilian images and colours.



Perfect for the winter months and holiday gifts are the room fragrances and exotic candles that provide a delicate fragrance and inviting glow.
The perfume diffusers, come with natural reeds in a lovely signature bottle. The perfumed liquid travels through the sticks, releasing the subtle and continuous scent for several weeks.


The perfumed crystals are a contemporary take on traditional pot-pourri and come in the form of glittery nuggets of natural Gum Arabica infused with various perfumes. Each box comes accompanied by a phial of perfumed oil to maintain the scent and sparkle of the crystals.


The room essence sprays are an aromatic spray for the home. Spritz into the air, on fabrics, linens and textiles to infuse the room with the various fragrances.
