I think we’re all soooo ready for Spring! I certainly am, anyway. With the help of Molton Brown, I can get in to the mood for the new season before the new season has even begun (coz I’m keen like that).
I even started ‘Spring cleaning’ today because I can’t wait to say goodbye to this Winter that seems to be dragging on and finally replace my home with cheerful bunch daffodils, brighter colours and lighter home fragrances.
Molton Brown Dewy Lily of the Valley & Star Anise | London via Cornwall
Launched just in time for Mother’s Day, Molton Brown’s new blend is Dewy Lily of the Valley & Star Anise*. It is available in the usual array of body care such as shower gel, hand cream, and body lotion as well as in the form of a scented candle and a reed diffuser.
There are also gift sets available too and just like this three-piece gift set, they are all wonderfully packaged and that's one of the things that the brand prides themselves in. Molton Brown makes gifting so easy as they offer a free gift wrapping service, no matter how much you spend.
Molton Brown Dewy Lily of the Valley & Star Anise three-piece fragrance gift set (RRP £72) features a 300ml shower gel, 300ml body lotion and a 50ml bottle of eau de toilette.
I would describe the scent as something similar to the fresh air in the open space of the grassy countryside on a crisp but sunny Spring morning. It makes me miss living in the countryside, I loved waking up to those kind of surroundings.
There is something about Molton Brown that gets the fragrance balance just right. The scent of the new blend is green, leafy, light, floral and fresh.
For the shower gel and body lotion, the fragrance notes is as follows:
- Top note - Magnolia
- Hear note - Lily Of The Valley
- Base note - Ylang-ylang
- Extract - Star anise
As expected, the eau de toilette perfume as a more complex blend with added extras.
The eau de toilette can be sprayed on to the skin after using the matching shower gel and body lotion to boost the scent to make it last longer throughout the day (or evening. But I would describe this as a day time fragrance.)
The fragrance notes are:
- Top notes - Star anise, magnolia, and green mandarin.
- Heart notes - Lily Of The Valley, peony and white tea.
- Base notes: Ylang-ylang, sandalwood and white musk.
