If you are a regular reader of my Blog then you will know just how much I love Molton Brown. Their products can be found in most of the rooms in our home and so many of their fragrances are firm family favourites with memory evoking scents.
When Molton Brown introduces a new fragrance collection I am always so excited to learn and sample more, and Suede Orris is no exception. For a start the soft dusky blush pink packaging is stunning, my kind of colour scheme and also it perfectly coordinates with my Blog colour theme, so thank you Molton Brown! Suede Orris is a resolutely powdery scent which feels comforting, soft and sensuous in a beautifully opulent, yet modern way.
New to the Molton Brown family, this soft, gentle and exquisite fragrance smells as beautiful as the packaging. Its fresh and light, especially on first application, but it has this gorgeous lingering aroma trail to it.
Top notes: Mandarin, olibanum and elemi.
Heart notes: Tuscan orris, rose and jasmine absolutes.
Base notes: Cedarwood, labdanum and patchouli.
Bath and Shower Gel
Molton Brown Bath and Shower Gels are pretty much all our family uses in the bathroom, even our children have their own Molton Brown Bath and Shower Gel preferred scents. Generously sized at 300ml with their flip-up cap, the elegantly shaped bottles are classics. The Bath and Shower Gel’s are always so soft and gentle on the skin and turn a shower into a luxury shower in an instant. A few drops in the bath can also produce a lovely bubble bath so you can really delve into the aromas, kick back and truly relax.
I love layering fragrances and I think Molton Brown do this perfectly. Their Body Lotions are moisturising and hydrating without being rich or greasy. They absorb into the skin leaving the beautiful lingering scent in a subtle/non-overpowering way. I also always love their pump application and generously sized packaging too.
Eau de Toilette
I have quite a collection of Molton Brown Eau de Toilettes now and I just adore their elegant glass bottles. This Suede Orris Eau de Toilette I think is a perfect year round choice, its one that would transition from day to evening (office to cocktail bar) so elegantly.
I have to say that I have never tried ‘Hair Mist’ before so I was really intrigued by this product. I love that it came with a hair tie on the bottle lid (and in my favourite dusky blush pink too). I think this would be a great touch to spray on the hair for a night out, date night or special occasion, plus it’s a unique additional way of layering a fragrance.
The first day I sprayed the ‘Molton Brown Suede Orris Eau de Toilette’, my husband immediately asked what was I wearing as he instantly loved it, he also mentioned how much he liked it a few times over the day and many times since. To be honest he doesn’t normally comment too much on scents so this new fragrance definitely gets a big thumbs up. Certainly a dash of pink to make the boys wink, and a perfect date night scent.
As mentioned it does seem light and subtle on first application but wears and lingers so beautifully. I found myself catching whiffs of the fragrance throughout the day and it’s such a beautiful scent that each time it brought a little smile to my face, and I have found myself going ‘mmmmmm’ at the scent on plenty occasions. I find it lingers softly on clothing too which I adore.
Like so many Molton Brown fragrances I think this could actually work as a Unisex scent too. Whilst I personally think it does lean more feminine with the Eau de Toilette and Hair Mist (if you are a fan of Molton Brown’s Rose Absolute definitely give Suede Orris a try). I do think however the Bath and Shower Gel in particular could certainly work as unisex.
The collection leaves me feeling enwrapped in this indulgent fragrance that feels like a slice of Florence in a beautiful, ethereal and sensuously scented way. It evokes that creamy touch of couture suede gloves on feather soft skin, that’s just so dreamy, luxurious and comforting. Another beautiful collection from Molton Brown and one I can see being a firm favourite with many people.
