We were lucky enough to be hosted (along with fellow Handpicked Media bloggers) to an evening with Molton Brown at Vanilla, London. It's the perfect venue as it's central and a blank canvas for showcasing beauty products so this certainly wasn't our first event there but I must admit the gorgeous colours of the Molton Brown bottles looked perfect in this setting.
Molton Brown is a brand we should be really proud of. English through and through you'll never find them adding anything tested on animals, they only use precious and potent ingredients and they are truly inspired by the world and all it's glories. And as someone commented on my instagram at the event - they have many imitators but no-one does it quite as well as they do...
I am now sitting here typing this and smelling the most heavenly fragrance, Mahina, which becomes a new member of the Molton Brown range of fine fragrances in January 2013. I was lucky enough to be given a sample in the goody bag and I am hooked!
This addition to the fine fragrance collection, Navigations Through Scent is named after a region of the laid back, sun-drenched island of Tahiti - and through this scent I am almost there. The top notes are ylang-ylang and fresh orange blossom and it also fuses tiare flower, grown in abundance in Tahiti, with base notes of vanilla and cedarwood. The overall floral scent is citrussy and not sweet and as the Principal Perfumer for Molton Brown, Jennifer Jambon, explains 'Mahina is a bright, happy fragrance inspired by the idyllic white beaches of Tahiti. The blend of fresh citrus orange flower and ylang-ylang combined with the white floral heart of the tiare flower creates a beautifully balanced floral fragrance for both men and women.'
I will be investing in more because my sample will be finished by January at this rate!
Mahina is unisex and available from January for £60 (50ml)
