Checking into an Aman resort feels like entering another universe: The group’s 33 international properties are architectural masterpieces: serene, intimate spaces where pavilions sit on cliffs overlooking the sea (the 36-room Amanoi in Vietnam) and low-profile stone buildings grant uninterrupted views of otherworldly plateaus (the 35-room Amangiri in Canyon Point, Utah). Aman’s spas up the escapism ante even more, with treatments and journeys rooted in the brand’s Southeast Asian origins (the original Aman, Amanpuri, debuted in Phuket, Thailand, in 1988).
Travelers can now bring a bit of that essence home, with the recent release of a 30-item skin-care collection. Products are divided into three categories – Grounding, Purifying, and Nourishing – and include everything from body butters and bath soaks to face serums and masks. They’re deeply fragrant, feature ingredients sourced from Aman locations, and, with Japanese porcelain-inspired packaging by architect Kengo Kuma, make beautiful additions to bathroom shelves.
We’re fans of the Purifying Ocean Face Mist ($83), a copper-infused toner that can be spritzed onto a cotton pad or directly on the face – it smells like saltwater, tingles just enough to let you know it’s working, and provides a great base before moisturizing. The Nourishing Coconut Milk Bath ($96) is a potent jasmine bomb made from dried coconut milk and Himalayan salt (good news: because a little goes a long way, the substantial pot will fuel many soaks).
The line is available at Aman spas worldwide (where new spa menu options incorporate them into signature treatments), and in Aman’s online boutique.
