|This is cozy, but elegant oriental fragrance that you’ll adore.
If you’re having trouble finding that perfect cold weather fragrance, then look no more because I discovered one from Molton Brown that totally has me smitten. Though Mesmerising Oudh Accord & Gold Eau de Toilette launched in 2015, this was the first time I ever sampled its heady oriental beauty that I couldn’t keep it to myself any longer.
This is not a heavily spicy fragrance, but a luxurious unisex one with a sweet honey creaminess against the mossy wood accord. The effect is a masterful mellowing of the spices in a way that is elegant and so intriguing in how it plays out.

The top notes are cinnamon leaf oil and nutmeg oil, which blend spice and sweetness, smoothing the two so neither dominates. Yet, you already are drawn into its allure.
As the fragrance further warms in the heart, you experience more of its richness from notes of elemi oil, myrrh oil and black tea accord. At this stage, the scent becomes a bit drier and more mysterious for how those notes mingle.
By the time the fragrance dries down in the base, it has a powdery, smoky quality due to a graceful marriage of sweet to spice that is quite sophisticated.
Those looking for a fabulous and unique winter fragrance or for holiday gift giving should visit Molton Brown for Mesmerizing Oudh Accord & Gold Eau de Toilette ($65). Honestly, it shouldn’t be missed!
