Have you heard about Ortigia?

 If the name doesn’t ring a bell, the exquisite packaging certainly will do. You’ll have seen it in the bathrooms of the most exclusive hotels, in boutiques on the sun dappled streets of Sicily and if you are lucky enough to spend time on private yachts we’d be happy to bet that you were bathing in Ortigia shower gel!

This luxury beauty brand hails from gorgeous Sicily, a rocky outpost of Italy with an almost tropical climate and a rich history. This small Island is one of the most southern parts of the Mediterranean and over the years has been held by the Greeks, Arabs, Romans, Byzantines & Normans which has shaped a truly unique culture for the people. Founded over 10 years ago, Ortigia specialises in luxury lotions, perfumes, soaps and home fragrances all of which are inspired by the scents, sounds and colours of Sicily and use natural ingredients, indigenous to the Island. Not only do they look divine but the fragrances are out of this world. Close your eyes and you’ll be instantly transported to a crumbling Mediterranean villa, relaxing in the sun with a light tropical breeze sashaying amongst the olive trees.

The collection is separated by scent so the first step is to choose your favourite like Fico d’India, a favourite among the Royals – taken from vibrant orange cactus flowers, blended with powdery fig and cedar or Neroli from the blossom of the bitter orange tree. Sicilian Lime is a zesty yet woody uplifting scent, whilst Zagara captures the true essence of Sicilian orange groves, finally Sandalo is an intoxicating masculine aroma from the Sandalwood exotic tree.

We stock several different products in each aroma so you can mix and match to build your bespoke fragrance portfolio, from room essences and diffusers to candles bringing the spirit of the Mediterranean into your home and transporting your guests as they enter your house. The soaps and hand creams look super stylish in a guest bathroom whilst the bath salts, oils and perfumes are just for you to add a moment of luxury into your daily routine. Oh and we also stock beautiful gift sets to help you find the perfect present for your loved ones!

Fico d’India Room Essence – powdery and fresh. This is the perfect aroma for a guest bedroom

  • Amazing hot wax as always! I’ve been coming to Strip for ages now and even though I’ve moved away from the area, I always make the journey because it’s more than worth it for a top class wax and as pain free an experience as a hot waxing can be. All the staff are always lovely and welcoming. Thanks ladies!

  • Got a Brazilian here and it’s the most painless waxing experience I’ve ever had. Also very good wax job, and she really made me feel relaxed and comfortable too… which is not easy when you’re half naked getting waxed! Will def go back.

  • Honestly the best intimate waxing in London. Quick and as pain-free as it’s gonna get. My favourite therapist is Luciana – she’s such a pro and makes the whole experience easy and stress-free.

  • Hands down the best wax I have ever had. This was my first time going to Strip and there was no pain whatsoever and it was over so quickly! I have very sensitive skin and am always in pain whenever I get a wax however, I had none of these issues here! Will 100% be back.

  • I have been looking for a hair removal salon since leaving NYC. A lot of beauty salons use mediocre wax, however at Strip they use the proper black wax which is the best and most comfortable way to remove hair it is also super quick. Staff could not have been more friendly helpful and professional. I will definitely be returning to Strip!

  • Best waxing experience I’ve ever had! Martina was wonderful and the products they use are amazing and make a really comfortable experience. I’m a customer for life.

  • Absolutely amazing wax with Martina today. The whole experience from Terri on reception to the treatment was fantastic and I cannot recommend this salon enough. Having recently undergone extensive surgery for Crohn’s disease, I was nervous for my first wax in a few years and Martina was just amazing she listened to me and made me feel totally relaxed and in safe hands. The wax they use is fantastic and you barely feel a thing. Can’t wait to come back!

  • Just had my very first Brazilian wax and was pretty nervous, but Isobel put me at ease straight away. I felt really cared for and it wasn’t embarrassing at all; and not anywhere near as painful as I’d feared.

    I’ve signed up for their special offer of 5 for the price of 4. Isobel has completely changed the way I think about waxing. Thank you!

  • This was my first Hollywood Wax and I was nervous. The reception staff were extremely helpful with my questions beforehand. Holly my waxing technician, was extremely friendly, helpful and really put me at ease. It hurt a little, but nothing to how I thought it was going to and it was over very quickly. Definitely will be coming back! Thank you to the whole team for a fantastic service!
