With the amazing, but short flight in Singapore Suites, admittedly I didn’t even open the amenity kit during my short time onboard. In fact, it wasn’t until a few days ago I realized I would write this post that I even looked inside. The Singapore Airlines Lalique Amenity kit has nice products if a bit light on content overall.
This is a review of the Singapore Airlines Lalique First Class amenity kit provided on my flight between Frankfurt and New York. The kit is Lalique branded, and I received the Male version, there is also a female, and also a unisex version. The main difference I can determine is only one item, fragrance intended for male or female passengers. The unisex kit contains a candle. Obviously not for use in flight! Singapore Airlines started selling a bunch of premium cabin amenities during the pandemic, and seemingly is still doing so even though these are again being offered in flight. Their stock imagery look better than what I could do myself, so I used this for this review. So all photos credit: Singapore Airlines
Welcome to another installment of our amenity kit review series. As in past reviews, I will be reviewing this amenity kit on a scale from 1 to 5 (being the best) and will rate it based on five categories:
- Bag/container: design, quality and reusability/collectibility of the bag.
- Product: quality, size and variety of the facial and body products.
- Comfort items: eye masks, ear plugs, etc.
- Miscellaneous: pens, tissues and everything else.
- Extras: additional items that make your flight just a tad more comfortable including pajamas, slippers, etc.
Singapore Airlines Lalique Amenity Kit
Back in 2017, when Singapore Airlines launched their refreshed Suites cabins on the A380, they also announced a partnership with French crystal maker, Lalique.
SIA and Lalique have signed a memorandum of understanding (MoU) to join forces on enhancing the travelling experience in SIA’s Suites and First Class cabins. The partnership between SIA and Lalique – which forms part of Switzerland-based Lalique Group (LLQ) and specialises in decorative crystal ware, interior decor, perfumes, jewellery, art and hospitality – combines both companies’ dedication to excellence. The two partners intend to offer co-branded items such as amenity kits, toiletries, glassware, loungewear and beddings.
I’m no expert on European fashion brands. This seems nice enough, and there certainly seems to be demand for these items. I saw several items available online on ebay and similar sites to resell these kits and pajamas.
The suggested retail price is SGD 180, or about US$129. Wow, first time I recall seeing a retail price assigned to an amenity kit Quality wise it is better than most, although just a single pouch, with no pockets. Score: 3
As I’ve said before, I’m far from an expert on perfume. I don’t know anything of this fragrance before this flight. A 30ml bottle of eau de toilette is a nice addition to an amenity kit, although not something I normally use. The scent is described as woody, and I think I agree with it.
Other items include lip balm and body lotion, very basic, and absolute minimum for an amenity kit, and these are nice, and thankfully not such a small container, so this will last a while. The facial mist is nice, although I do with for a face cream as well.
Singapore doesn’t provide other items in the kits, but dental and shaving kits are available upon request. Good quality products, and the cologne is a nice plus, but otherwise offerings are pretty basic Score: 3.5
While not part of the amenity kit, an eyemask was offered to me with the pajamas Score: x
As mentioned, dental and shaving kits are not part of the amenity kit, but are both available upon request. Same story for earplugs. Score: x
The pajamas offered in flight are very nice. Gray poly/cotton blend, quite comfortable for lounging. Drawstring waist, and a button at the neck. As mentioned, no air vents in the suites, but at least these aren’t that warm. The eyemask included here is fine, very soft fabric, but nothing special. I’ll be wearing these pj’s again at home. There are also slippers, which are among the best airline slippers I’ve tried. Comfortable, and better yet, large enough for the feet of a tall person. Score: 4
Final thoughts on the Singapore Airlines Lalique Amenity kit
The Lalique bag is good quality, and reusable, but not sure I would use it as a toiletries case. The skincare products are somewhat minimal, but what is included is good quality. Lalique pajamas are nice
I adjusted the scoring here compared to past reports only since Singapore doesn’t include the items the same way as others often do. I find the items that are here good quality, but other than the eau de toilette, its a pretty basic set of items included. For this reason, I used less categories, but by averaging the scores, I rate this kit 3.5
Have you tried out this Singapore Airlines Lalique Amenity kit? Please let us know what you think.
I’m pretty geeky about these amenity kits, and always take them after flights. This means I have more than I need. For this reason, I make donations to a local shelter, where these items are really appreciated. If you have extras, I hope you do the same.
