WHAT'S IN THE BOX

Molton Brown

Blossoming Honeysuckle and White Tea

Blossoming Honeysuckle and White Tea

Blossoming Honeysuckle and White Tea

1.5ml eau de toilette

FAMILY: FLORAL
TOP NOTES: bergamot, mandarin
HEART NOTES: honeysuckle, white tea, jasmine
BASE NOTES: sandalwood, heliotrope, vanilla

Inspired by the legendary beauty of a Sichuan goddess, this perfectly balanced blend of zesty tea and delicate blossoms is both refreshing and calming to the spirit.

Tea is having such a moment in fragrance, we are finding – the note can be smoky and resinous, but here it’s a quenching cup of uplifting silvery freshness that softens as it settles on your skin, the exotic blooms of honeysuckle and jasmine peeping through the bergamot but never dominating. Sandalwood, heliotrope and vanilla becalm the base and leave a lasting trail of contemplative, powdery softness. X

Mesmerising Oudh Accord and Gold

1.5ml eau de toilette

FAMILY: FLORIENTAL
TOP NOTES: cardamom, ginger, clove
HEART NOTES: tuberose, tagetes, lily, jasmine
BASE NOTES: cedarwood, sandalwood, musk

Devoted fans of the Heavenly Gingerlily range – and there are many – were thrilled when Molton Brown launched this exotic elixir as an eau de toilette, to further layer on the lusciousness. Promising an escape to Tahitian shores, fragrant spices scent the warm breeze, with cardamom, ginger and clove cleverly used here as top notes that carry us on a journey throughout the development as it warms on the skin.

A heady white floral bouquet of jasmine nestled with tuberose and lily is proffered from the heart, and a softly musky base anchored with the smoothest accord of cedar and sandalwoods. Closing your eyes you can just imagine the black sands of Tahiti and exotic blooms enticing you to explore the paradise beyond. X

Fiery Pink Pepper

Fiery Pink Pepper

Fiery Pink Pepper

1.5ml eau de toilette

FAMILY: WOODY
TOP NOTES: pink pepper, tangerine, elemi oil
HEART NOTES: nutmeg, ginger oil
BASE NOTES: patchouli, cedarwood oil

One of the most iconic and signature scents in the entire Molton Brown range, the perkily spiced pink pepper-pod fragrance is finally available as a fragrance, too. Delicately balanced, with the alluring layers enhanced by the complex aromas, it’s the top notes of those peppercorns mixed with tangerine and elemi oil that really reel you in for more. In the heart we find further spices – nutmeg and ginger oil making you imagine a pestle and mortar or reaching for an ingredient in your spice cupboard.

Warmly tingling to the nose, it’s a wake-up call for any time of day. Here we are transported to the Gulf of Guinea and the humid dusk creating its own scent as exotic spices bloom in the evening air. A sultry number, to be sure, Fiery Pink Pepper can be called on to add spice to any occasion. X

Orange and Bergamot

1.5ml eau de toilette

FAMILY: FRESH
TOP NOTES: orange oil, bergamot, lemon, mandarin
HEART NOTES: petitgrain, cardamom, galbanum
BASE NOTES: neroli, ylang ylang, musk

One of the original and much-loved scents in the extensive Molton Brown family, this eau de toilette is crisply invigorating to the senses, with bergamot and mandarin in the top notes blended with Seville oranges for an extra zap of zest. One spritz is all that’s required to have you dreaming of sun-warmed skin and an orange grove resplendent with ripe fruit hanging from the trees.

Pettigrain, cardamom and galbanum add the sensation of passing through dappled shade, a welcoming cool breeze that merges seamlessly into a deeper base of neroli and ylang ylang muskiness – a lasting trail to make you sigh with pleasure. X

Re-Charge Black Pepper

Re-Charge Black Pepper

Re-Charge Black Pepper

1.5ml eau de toilette

FAMILY: WOODY
TOP NOTES: black pepper, lemon, ginger
HEART NOTES: coriander oil, basil
BASE NOTES: vetiver, oak moss, ambergris

One of the most celebrated scents in the whole of the Molton Brown repertoire, the spicy black pepper is further enhanced by the addition of lemon and ginger in the top notes – a true wake-up call to get you going in the morning (or at any time you need a boost of energy!) Darkly fragrant herbaceous notes of coriander and basil in the heart notes lend an intensity that seems to softly growl.

The earthy sweetness of vetiver, oakmoss and rare ambergris provide a dapper sophistication and deep woodiness to the longer-lasting base – a fragrant trip to the spice-spiked breezes and warm sands of Madagascar that we’ll never tire of taking… and the legions of die-hard black pepper fans most certainly agree. We rather think after one sniff of this, you’ll be joining them, and layering the eau de toilette up with matching or complimentary body products, too. X

Molton Brown

Ylang-Ylang

Ylang-Ylang

Ylang-Ylang

1.5ml eau de toilette

FAMILY: FLORIENTAL
TOP NOTES: tangerine, cardamom, ginger
HEART NOTES: ylang ylang, jasmine, rose absolute
BASE NOTES: vanilla, cedarwood, musk

You'll find yourself in the rainforests of Madagascar for this indulgently soothing scent journey: sun-warmed woods, stunning bouquets of tropical flowers and the comforting familiarity of rose absolute. The fourth largest island in the world, Madagascar offers the chance to fully escape.

Deeply tranquil to frazzled spirits, you are invited to spray this eau de toilette and be carried away to doze beneath fragrant canopies of flowers. Sometimes we all just need to press the pause button on life and learn to unwind – and fragrance can help us do just that.

Feel free to spray lavishly, sit back, close your eyes and inhale the scent of tranquility… X

Bushukan

Bushukan

Bushukan

1.5ml eau de toilette

FAMILY: CITRUS
TOP NOTES: lemon oil, bergamot, basil
HEART NOTES: thyme oil, cedarwood
BASE NOTES: cistus labdanum oil, vetiver, tolu absolute

Rediolent of the morning sunrise, this shareable citrusy scent will definitely get your day off to a zingy start with a striking accord of lemon and bergamot and the surprising addition of basil in the top notes. A herbaceous heart follows, with thyme and cedar leading to the intriguingly resinous cistus labdanum and earthy vetiver of the base. Tolu absolute is used to smooth the blend to perfection, a fragrance to rouse you from slumber with a smile and feel the warmth of the sunshine on your skin as the dewdrops evaporate, and the day awakens with you.

Inspired by the mysticism of Thailand, we feel this is one of those scents you’ll go back to time and again – whenever you need an extra burst of confidence or to enjoy a moment of peaceful solitude that’s just for you. X
