On the 11th of September 2021, the time finally came when almost 100 ESSENS Club members could, despite the travel restrictions, go and enjoy a dream ESSENS Turkey holiday.
After a long time when we were banned from traveling, it was finally possible to meet again in person, make new friends and enjoy unforgettable moments with everyone who decided to jump on the ESSENS journey.
True luxury could be experienced in two five-star hotels, 5 nights in 5* Swandor Topkapi Palace in Antalya and 2 nights in 5* Elite World Europe Hotel in Istanbul.
Why not rock it and fly from Antalya to Istanbul by a private Boeing 737 charter flight booked exclusively for ESSENS Club members. This year was already the second time in ESSENS history that we managed to secure it.
The main ESSENS attraction is the quality premium perfumes. They were also the reason behind the Istanbul visit. Members were able to have a sneak peek at how it's all done in our fragrant products, companies SELUZ and Erte Cosmetics.
The luxury 5* holiday stay on the Turkish Riviera began with the gradual arrival of all participants from 12 different countries, who, thanks to the ESSENS Travel project, set out on their journey from 26 international departure airports, with the most distant destination being Vladivostok in Russia.
Everyone deservedly enjoyed their beach holiday, always having sunshine by our side, excellent food, drinks and dynamic music. The cherry on the cake was for sure for everybody to experience valuable moments and create new friendship bonds with other ESSENS members.
An emotional moment was the arrival of the company owner, Mr. Michal Kovář, complemented - geniously timed - concert of singer Inna who delivered a stunning after party.
For the second time in ESSENS history, the whole group travelled to Istanbul on a private flight, this time a Boeing 737 from Turkish Airlines, whose professional crew took good care, providing the highest comfort to all passengers throughout the whole flight. At the same time, the flight crew witnessed unceasing energy and enthusiasm that only ESSENS can show for this incredibly interesting experience, which later became a popular topic on all social media platforms.
As in previous years, the stay in Turkey ended with a visit to Istanbul. This time, we managed to secure excursions in both factories, SELUZ and Erte Cosmetics, and this deserved a 2 nights stay in a 5 * Elite World Europe Hotel. The excursions themselves outlined the complicated path of the perfume. It was possible to see their origin from the precise mixing of individual fragrance components in SELUZ to their maturation and bottling in bottles on an automatic production line in ERTE Cosmetics. The excursion was accompanied by a fragrant workshop, everybody was leaving not only with exclusive gifts, but also emotional experiences.
