Molton Brown has such a talent for crafting memorable fragrances that can bring such joy to my heart in how each affects me. If you’re searching for a fragrance gift of an artistically done floral chypre, then Molton Brown Jasmine & Sun Rose Fragrance Collection that I experienced for this review is the perfect choice for its elevated beauty in how this chypre was handled.
**Disclaimer: This post has been compensated. Opinions are solely mine. **
Typically, a floral chypre starts out with juicy top notes of citrus, followed by pine scented notes of ladanum from Cistus ladanifer shrubs with mossy-animalic base notes from a contribution of moss. The result is beautifully feminine, a bit daring but with a distinctive sexy appeal in how this Molton Brown fragrance can play out.
However, Molton Brown’s take involved adding raspberry and peach to the bergamot citrus with jasmine, oasmanthus and rose in the heart finishing with a sweeter sensual twist to the mossy notes of labdanum incorporating patchouli and musk. Imagine a fresh fruity sweetness balanced with different sort of sweetness from the floral that is almost capable of blooming as you wear it from how its dewy sweetness evolves. The Jasmine & Sun Rose fragrance is bright, happy and becomes irresistible as those flower petals open up to the morning sun to sheer that fresh sweetness. Just like day that eventually becomes night, this fragrance winds down seductively with those teasing notes of labdanum, musk and inviting patchouli that make this scent even more captivating.
What else about Molton Brown that I love is that their fragrances are long-lasting. Their lotions and shower gels that I have used also are pampering in how they treat the skin and enhance fragrance. As always, their formulas are vegan, cruelty-free and paraben free.
The Molton Brown Jasmine & Sun Rose Fragrance Collection for this review consists of three products: 300ml shower gel, a lotion and the 50ml eau de toilette spray. This $110 gift set is available at SkinStore for $100 so make it a point to check this holiday gift out. If you want a fragrance gift with a matching lotion to prolong the scent’s beauty as well as bathe with, then this company Brown has done it again with their Molton Brown Jasmine & Sun Rose Fragrance Collection.
