ALL ABOUT THE FRAGRANCE
“Molton Brown led the way, and really focused on the individual. Everyone was unique”
– JOSEPH KONIAK, son of the Molton Brown founders

Working with Master Perfumer, Jacques Chabert since 1993, his expressive approach has given Molton Brown its award-winning Re-charge Black Pepper.
THE MOLTON BROWN ICON
Launched as one of Britain’s first luxury hand washes, ‘Bubbling Orange Grove’ as it was then known became recognised for its unforgettable citrus fragrance. Now known as the beloved Orange & Bergamot, this hero from Molton Brown’s original collection is still a bestseller and an unmistakable icon.
LONDON VIA THE WORLD
A fascination into the wonders of exploratory travel; each Molton Brown creation is intricately composed with rare ingredients from across the globe, with bath and body luxuries found at some of the world’s most distinguished hotels.
MORE THAN JUST A BRAND
Leading the way in culture and style, the brand’s South Molton Street store became much more than a salon. With an in-house vegetarian café and blossoming flowers in the window, the atmosphere in the salon drew a cult following of music’s glitterati, film stars and the fashion world’s most elite. Now, we’re giving you a slice of the action.
RELAX WITH THIS MONTH’S DUO
HOW TO GET THE MOST OUT OF THIS MONTH’S HAUL OF FAME
If you’re self-isolating, you’re going to want to look at ways of traveling without leaving the house. How to do this, you may ask? Simply, using the power of fragrance. Molton Brown’s Heavenly Gingerlily scent – captured within our first ever Haul of Fame duo – will entice your wanderlust with an escape to Tahitian shores, aiding an escape to exotic beaches from the comfort of your own bathroom. With fragrant lily, warming ginger and cardamom, the alluring Bath & Shower gel (and accompanying Body Lotion) will leave a delicate, tropical scent.
THE STANDARD USE
Whether you’re more of a shower or bath person, you can make every moment a luxe moment with this Heavenly Gingerlily duo. A daily escape from the happenings of the world, skin will be left cleansed and exotically scented. Massage skin in the shower, leave for a few minutes while taking in the scent, and rinse for a truly refreshing experience. Alternatively, pour into a bath for a pampering soak and imbue your bathroom with this much-loved scent. Use the accompanying lotion to massage into slightly damp skin post cleansing to maintain hydration levels. It’s not just our hands that are getting dry while staying indoors, is it?
BUSINESS AS – NOT SO – USUAL
This worldly pandemic has seemingly left us short of hand wash. If your local stock is running low, why not use your Bath & Shower Gel to wash your hands until you can get hold of some anti-bacterial? Similarly, if your hands are experiencing the brunt of over-washing, the accompanying Body Lotion can be used to moisturise hands while leaving them delicately scented.
