Molton Brown Rosa Absolute Collection


Forget everything – and we mean everything – about rose being wifty-wafty and for your mum or your great-aunt. This ramps up rose to a whole new decadent level, making it absolutely perfect for this time of year: a dressed-up, get-set-to-party, come-hither kind of rose, with deliciously layerable options: a Bath & Shower Gel, Body Lotion, and – as the finishing floriental flourish – the Rosa Absolute Eau de Toilette.

Top notes include blackcurrant and raspberry, with generous flourishes of rose absolute at the heart, subtly spiced by cinnamon and clove and with patchouli in the base. (Actually, if you want to sample this, a 30ml size of the fragrance features in The Perfume Society’s seasonal Discovery Box, Precious Perfumes, which you can find here.)

A wonderful, opulent scent option that deserves to be accessorised by velvet, jewels – and bold crimson lips.
