Molton Brown 'The Art of Fragrance' Box

The Molton Brown limited edition “The Fine Art of Fragrance Box” via The Perfume Society landed on my doorstep this week and I have absolutely loved it. This edition features eight of Molton Browns best selling eau de toilettes and it comes beautifully packaged ready to enjoy.

Inside the Box those eight scents are:

  • Fiery Pink Pepper - belongs in the Woody Family. Described as being a fresh and voluptuous scent it uses the spiciness of ginger and Nutmeg for the heart notes with pink pepper, tangerine, elemi oil as tops notes and together with patchouli, cedarwood oil for the base notes, this is a scent which is guarenteed to wake you up. 
  • Mesmerising Oudh Accord & Gold belongs with the woody family and this is a scent for every man, it is mouth wateringly divine. With Cinnamon leaf oil and nutmeg make a very lively and awakening first spritz with heat notes of elemi oil, myrrh oil, black tea accord and base notes of oudh accord, vetiver, honey and tobacco accord it is aromatic, spicy and fruity all rolled into one. 
  • Ylang-Ylang belongs with the Floriential family and is stunning. With top notes of tangerine, cardamom, ginger, ylang ylang, jasmine, rose absolute and base notes of vanilla, cedarwood, musk it is a scent which clears the air, is fresh and is spring in a bottle. 
  • Re-charge Black Pepper is again a member of the Woody family and is said to be one of the most celebrated scents in the whole of the Molton Brown repertoire. The use of black pepper, lemon, ginger as top notes deliver that powerful burst to wake you up after just one spritz with heart notes of herbaceous notes of coriander and basil and base notes of vetiver, oak moss, ambergris give this scent a deep woody scent which smells divine on the mister. 
  • Heavenly Gingerlily - belongs with the floriental scents and it uses Cardamom, ginger, clove as top notes which, on the initial spritz the spiciness is just heavenly and then mixed with the heart notes of tuberose, tagetes, lily and jasmine with a softly musky base anchored with the smoothest accord of cedar and sandalwood. The scent is just divine and one of my favourites from the box. 
  • Blossoming Honeysuckle & White Tea is found with the floral family and it is both fruity and floral. Using top notes of bergamot and mandarin mixed with the heart notes of honeysuckle, white tea, jasmine, for me it is the Jasmine which makes this scent what it is. The base notes of sandalwood, heliotrope and vanilla make for a scent which simply beautiful. 
  • Orange & Bergamot belongs with the citrus family and if you are a fan of zesty scents, then this is one for you because it is zesty with a little bit more zest on top. Using orange oil, bergamot, lemon, mandarin as top notes gives that initial burst of fruitiness. Next come the middle notes of Pettigrain, cardamom and galbanum and base notes of neroli, ylang ylang, musk makes for an incredible scent which again is long lasting, fresh and perfect for spring. 
  • Bushukan belongs with the citrus family and is again one for those of you who like a fragrance which is sharp from the on-set. Using lemon oil, bergamot and basil as top notes, thyme oil and cedarwood as heart notes with cistus labdanum oil, vetiver and tolu absolute as base notes it is a warm scent which is a perfect spring and summer scent for its freshness, ripeness and is suitable for both men and women.
If that isn't enough, also inside the box is a £10 voucher that you can redeem against a full size of your favourite fragrance from this box plus everyone who buys a Molton Brown Discovery Box between 17th February and 31st March will be entered into a prize draw to win the entire collection of eight full-size fragrances!

If you have never tried a Molton Brown fragrance before, then this is such a great introduction to them, the vials contain more than enough of each scent for you to try before you buy.   There are a quite a few fragrances within this box which I hadn't expected to like at all, but actually I did once I tried them.

The Molton Brown Fine Art of Fragrance Box is available to VIP Subscribers at the special price of £10.00 (£12.50 to non-susbcribers) .
