Molton Brown Gingerlily Nourishing Body Lotion ($42.00 for 10 oz. from Molton Brown, Nordstrom and Barneys New York): Gingerlily is warm and subtle scent that is classified in the Floriental family. On me it wears down to a light spicy floral that is warm and subtle. The lotion is itself quite moisturizing and hydrating, and it is very fast absorbing.

If you're craving a getaway, this moisturising body lotion is scented with truly glamorous aromas straight from the islands.

Top note: Warming ginger oil
Middle note: Exotic Tuberose
Base note: Spicy Cedarwood
Extract: White lily
Fragrance family: FLORIENTAL
Molton Brown Orange & Bergamot Body Lotion ($42.00 for 10 oz. from Molton Brown and Nordstrom): If you are partial to citrus scents, then be prepared to fall in love! This is no ordinary citrus body lotion, but instead it's a more complex permutation. Their is a warmth, rather than a sharpness, as the musk tempers the citrus, and the end result is intoxicatingly fresh and new. This is, without question, one of my very favorite scents from the house of Molton Brown– it's really that good!

Our longest-standing fragrance is still a bestseller, and now with our enhanced moisturising formulation you can pamper and scent your skin from head to toe with this nourishing body lotion. A refreshing, nourishing body lotion blended with extracts of sweet Sevillian orange oil.

Top note: Fragrant bergamot.
Middle note: Delicate neroli.
Base note: Musk
Fragrance family: CITRUS
Molton Brown Pink Pepperpod Body Lotion ($42.00 for 10 oz. from Molton Brown, Nordstrom and Barneys New York): The spicy aroma is subtle, and while the base note is patchouli– there is no suggestion of it against my skin. Instead, it reads as a light peppery aroma infused with a touch of Ginger. Once it acclimates to my chemistry it remains close to the skin as a lovely subtle spicy fusion without any assertive top notes. It is a really beautiful scent.

A spicy, nourishing body lotion blended with pink pepperpods for antioxidant protection. A humid dusk. Sweet aromas in the air. Spices ground between pestle and mortar.

Top note: Fiery pink pepper.
Middle note: Ginger.
Base note: Rich patchouli.
Fragrance family: SPICY
Molton Brown Rhubarb & Rose Hand Cream ($15.00 for 1.4 oz. from Molton Brown): I am completely obsessed with this hand cream because it is fast absorbing, unbelievably nourishing and hydrating, and because it smells heavenly. It leaves my hands unbelievably soft and supple, and the delectable scent lingers, but is never cloying. It is a beautifully articulated fruity floral that offers the perfect balance between the zesty citrus, Rhubarb and the Rose extract. In my book, this is hand cream perfection.

Top note: Rhubarb extract to keep hands healthy.
Middle note: Rose extract (to help moisturize).
Base note: Aromas of zesty yuzu and grapefruit.
Fragrance family: FRUITY
Molton Brown Orange & Bergamot Body Wash ($30.00 for 10 oz. from Molton Brown, Nordstrom  and Barneys New York): This is a beautifully refreshing citrusy body wash that cleans beautifully while leaving skin moisturized, and never stripped. It is emollient and hydrating enough that it works beautifully for shaving as well.

A refreshing, moisturizing body wash blended with notes of sweet orange blossom and bergamot. Including vitamin-rich ingredients to help make your skin look more radiant, this gently cleansing shower gel leaves the skin clean and refreshingly scented.

Our original body wash blend is unmistakably us. Bright, refreshing and ideal for your morning shower. Complete the set with the matching hand wash and lotion.

Top note: Bergamot
Middle note: Neroli
Base note: Musk
Extract: Seville Orange

  1. How does that hand cream compare to the one by Tatcha (which is currently my favorite)?

    1. Hi Cindy! While they are both wonderful in their ability to nourish and moisturize dry hands, the TATCHA Indigo line has therapeutic properties that this does not. Molton Brown offers a gorgeous fragranced hand cream, and TATCHA is an anti-inflammatory formula that treats skin conditions like Eczema, Rosacea and Dermatitis– and those are not among the claims or aims of the Molton Brown hand cream. I love the TATCHA hand cream as well, but this is also a lovely cream that I will happily keep in my rotation.

  2. Ooo I bet the gingerlily body wash would go wonderfully with my molton brown ginger extract shampoo from b-glowing!

    1. I am sure that they would pair perfectly! I love their products so much!
