Molton Brown have recently dropped a new scent and it’s blown me away. Not that it’s unusual where Molton Brown are concerned of course, because I’ve yet to find a fragrance I dislike from them. And I’m never without a bottle of my all-time favourite Gingerlilly Bath & Shower Gel. It’s something I never let myself run out of. That’s because when it comes to fragrances for the bath and body, there’s few with the same reputation as Molton Brown.
So when I heard they were releasing a whole new scent, I was very excited. Even more so when I heard it had Jasmine in it, because anything with a hint of Jasmine is my kind of fragrance. The brand new Jasmine & Sun Rose is every bit as warm and inviting as it sounds. And don’t be put off – the scent is sweet and delicate but floral it is not. (Thankfully, as I don’t particularly like floral scents!)
The top notes in the fragrance are of raspberry, peach and bergamot, with middle notes of jasmine and base notes of sun rose, patchouli and musk. This blend of scents should show you what kind of fragrance Jasmine & Sun Rose leads itself to be – warm, enveloping and also musky. It’s the patchouli and musk that give it an edge of mystery and a depth that means when you wear it, you don’t feel like you’re wearing just any normal rose fragrance. This one is like the tall, dark, handsome stranger in your perfume collection.
If you like sweet scents all-year round then you’ll love this new addition from Molton Brown. It’s sweet and feminine enough that I think anyone could wear it and love it – without being too floral. It’s managed to perfectly balance it’s floral notes into a scent that smells sweet and crisp, without being too much like a bouquet. And only skilled perfumers can achieve this. Which is why it doesn’t surprise me that Molton Brown have done it so wonderfully.
Available in a 50ml Eau de Toilette, it’s a delicate fragrance with an air of mystery to it. If you prefer your perfumes to be feminine and girly, you’ll want this in your collection asap. Perfectly for me, it also comes in accompanying Bath & Shower Gel as well as the matching Body Lotion. I may or may not (definitely have) almost used the entire bottle of Bath & Shower Gel already. It’s been perfect for the early autumn months because it fills a warm bath with a warm and inviting scent that’s really relaxing for an evening soak with some bubbles. (I’m referring to the champagne and the bath!)
