Press Sample (Affiliate Links)

I absolutely love Molton Brown, and their lotions, creams and body washes rank among my very favorite aromatic body products in which to luxuriate. This luxe, iconic English line is well known for their lovely fragrance blends, fantastic textures, and chic packaging. I recently added some of their magnificent eau de toilettes and body washes to my collection that I love so much that I had to share.
Molton Brown Ylang-Ylang Eau de Toilette ($65.00 from Molton BrownSaks Fifth AvenueJohn Lewis £39.00 and Spring): Described as, "Rich. Peaceful. Harmonious," this warm fragrance is a warm musky floral with a refined Ylang-Ylang at its core. It sits close to the skin and as it dries down a warm vanilla base note emerges that commingles with receding cedar wood and musk. While their is an unmistakable richness to this lovely scent, it is counteracted by the lighter eau de toilette formula.

According to Molton Brown,

A relaxing, indulgent eau de toilette blended with notes of ylang-ylang, cardamom and vanilla. Secrets from the rainforest. Sun-warmed woods. Dozing heads beneath the canopy. Press the pause button and get ready to unwind.

Top notes: Tangerine, Cardamom and Ginger.
Heart notes: Ylang-Ylang, Jasmine and Rose Absolute.
Base notes: Vanilla, Cedarwood and Musk.

Molton Brown Dewy Lily of the Valley & Star Anise Eau de Toilette ($65.00 from Molton BrownJohn Lewis £39.00 and Barneys New York): Described as, "Enduring. Exquisite. Pure," this delicate, and beautifully feminine, floral is a stunning amalgam of Lily of the Valley, Magnolia and Peony offset by the rich aroma of Ylang-Ylang and Sandalwood. The juxtaposition of the fresh florals and rich woodsy aromas create a lovely depth that is intoxicatingly beautiful and infinitely wearable.

According to Molton Brown,

The delicate notes of Lily of the Valley, Magnolia and Peony are in perfect balance with the notes of invigorating green mandarin and sweet star anise, evoking the ethereal scents of spring.

This timeless eau de toilette captivates the fine aromas of a blossoming meadow in the spring. The perfect surprise for those who love a floral fragrance.

Molton Brown Heavenly Gingerlily Eau de Toilette ($65.00 from Molton Brown and John Lewis £39.00): Described as, "Exotic. Alluring. Escapist," this warm and rich spicy floral is an intoxicating scent punctuated by Tuberose, Lily and Jasmine commingled with spicy top notes of Cardamom, Ginger and Clove. It sits close to the skin, and when it dries down it becomes an exotic and light fruity floral.

Exotic flora. Black sands. Fragrant spices perfuming the breeze. Escape to Tahitian shores with the enticing aromas of paradise.

This alluring eau de toilette fragrance captures the floral character of tuberose and lily from the body collection. These notes are further enhanced with ginger and real rose oil in the top and middle notes, whilst cardamom balances the fragrance. Cedarwood and noble musks in the base notes ensures the aroma lasts.

Molton Brown Tobacco Absolute Bath & Shower Gel ($30.00 for 10 oz. from Molton BrownNordstromSpring, Saks Fifth AvenueHarrods and Neiman Marcus): This warm, woodsy, tobacco and leather aromatic fusion may be considered more masculine, but if you love to wear fragrances like Tom Ford Tobacco Vanille, then you will delight in this bath and shower gel. It has a deep and complex aroma that is distinguished by its deep Tobacco Absolute essence that is enhances by the leather. There is a slight citrus top note that crisps up the edges, but once this magical potion meets the warm water and steam, it is a warm sexy, smokey tobacco that envelops the senses. I wear Tom Ford Tobacco Vanille, and the moment that I first tried this bath and shower gel, I knew that it would be one of my most beloved bath and shower gels.

The complex, cultivated notes of this body wash allows any man to indulge in their inner sense of exploration and enjoy a truly warm and comforting shower.
