The Heart Behind Samson & Charlie: A Story of Love, Luxury, and Dedication

At Samson & Charlie, we believe that true luxury goes beyond exquisite ingredients and meticulous craftsmanship—it’s about the stories that inspire and the love that fuels our passion. Today, we invite you to journey with us into the heart of Samson & Charlie, a brand deeply rooted in love, resilience, and the unwavering dedication to creating luxurious skincare.

The story of Samson & Charlie began with a playful idea to name our brand 'Budgie Australia.' However, destiny had a different plan. A sudden health scare with our beloved Black Russian Terrier, Samson, turned our world upside down. Discovering a lump on him and fearing we might lose him to cancer, as another Black Russian Terrier owner recently had, we were faced with a profound realisation.

In that moment of fear and reflection, we decided that our brand needed to represent something deeply meaningful. What could be more fitting than naming it after the two beings we treasure most in this world—our dogs, Samson and Charlie? This pivotal decision marked the beginning of Samson & Charlie, a tribute to the unconditional love and joy they bring into our lives.

Our brand name is more than a title; it’s a testament to the bond we share with our boys. Charlie, with his boundless energy and loving nature, and Samson, our gentle giant, became the heart and soul of our brand. Tragically, in 2021, we lost our dear Charlie to brain cancer.

This heartbreaking loss only strengthened our resolve to honour his memory through our work. Samson, our big bear, continues to be the centre of our world, inspiring us every day with his strength and love.

At Samson & Charlie, we are committed to crafting luxurious skincare products that reflect the same love and care we have for Samson and Charlie. Each product is meticulously formulated with the finest natural ingredients, ensuring unparalleled quality and efficacy.

Infused with pure 24K gold flakes, this exquisite oil not only imparts a radiant glow but also symbolizes the opulence and luxury we strive to offer. Every bottle is a labour of love, handcrafted to provide a skincare experience that’s both luxurious and deeply personal.
