So in the case, the recipe was definitely different, and I actually liked the B2B channel version better.
I am also a fan of the SF Touscan Soul toiletries in WA hotels!

Maybe we should ask Peter Thomas's brother David Lee?

Hilton is mid-range, not high end. Staying in most Hilton hotels is usually a depressing experience.

As for toiletry products, most of that crap is outsourced and manufactured by a number of large industrial suppliers who do contract work for the brands.

The Hilton-Peter Thomas Roth partnership started out nicely in 2011, but over the years, fill volumes got progressively smaller, the bottles themselves more cheaply made, and ultimately manufacturing moved to China from the U.S. (at least for the U.S. market). In recent years, have noticed that most/all of the toiletries supplied at Hilton's various brands have also shifted to China, including Conrad's Shanghai Tang. The Ferragamo line at WA seems to be the lone exception; still see U.S. or Italy on the bottles.

Marietta still manufactures in Cartland, NY. Guest Supply has facilities all over the world.

Iím beginning to think that what one is really getting in a Ferragamo or Shanghai Tang hotel product is nothing more than the fragrance licensed to one of the manufacturing companies.

In this case, no.

But even the UK- and US-based brands that Conrad offers (assuming choice of toiletries is still a Conrad standard?) have switched to Chinese sourcing.

Refinery brand seems to have some natural ingredients such as sweet almond oil as well
