In homage to the Three Wise Men bringing gifts at Christmas, I am bringing to you the gift of Molton Brown. As the story goes, the Three Wise Men: Gaspar, Balthasar and Melchior brought gifts of Gold, Frankincense and Myrrh to the newborn baby Jesus. This year Molton Brown have released three limited edition collections; Festive Frankincense & All Spice, Wonderous Myrrh Musk & Cypress and Oudh Accord & Gold. I have been presented with the gift of Gold and I would like invite you to experience the wonder behind this special collection from Molton Brown.
I have been using Molton Brown for many years and although it falls into the high end budget, I do think that it is worth every penny. Not only do the items scream luxury, but they look beautiful displayed in the bathroom and the scents are just divine. I’m a frequent user of the Black Pepper scent, and the more feminine version, Pink Pepperpod. There’s just something about the heady scents that calm my mind and body and put me in a state of relaxation. Oudh Accord and Gold is no different and the scent blend is not only heady, but refined and mysterious. Perfumer Phillipe Bousseton has created a fragrance range that combines cinnamon leaf oil with spicy citrus elemi oil that leaves behind a rich oudh accord. I am obsessed with Oudh, and its rich, leathery notes that scream sensuality and refinement.
The Oudh Accord and Gold Bath and Shower Gel would make a perfect gift for any Molton Brown fan. As per the usual collection, the bottle is the same shape and design, but with the added extra of a limited edition gold cap and the gel is suspended with 24 carat gold flakes. The use of gold in skincare dates back to Egyptian times where it is said that Cleopatra used gold face masks to preserve her flawless and youthful complexion.
After feeling like royalty after washing in gold, the Oudh Accord and Gold Body Lotion softens and scents skin with its mesmerising rich fragrance and added droplets of gold. I prefer to use Molton Brown as a post shower treat and save it for more special occasions, especially as the aroma is quite heavy and unbelievably beautiful.
To make any bath time feel special, the addition of a candle, and maybe a glass of champers, fits the bill. A candle addict like me can’t get enough of filling my home with deep fragrances that make my house smell incredible. The Molton Brown Oudh Accord and Gold single wick candle not only compliments my bath products, but the scent is intensified by vetiver and tobacco. Although it sounds unusual to have a tobacco note with a home fragrance, it really is something to be experienced. In most candles that I have in my bedroom, I find that I veer towards the heavier, more sophisticated scents so the Oudh Accord and Gold fits in with my tastes beautifully. Not only does it smell fabulous, but it is wrapped up in a gorgeous gift box with grosgrain ribbon decoration, making it a pretty gift.
