Molton Brown Jasmine & Sun Rose Collection

Jasmine & Sun Rose Collection from Molton Brown

I love to switch up my perfume as the season’s change and I think this is the perfect excuse to treat yourself to a new scent. So August saw Molton Brown release their stunning new Pretty Bold – Jasmine & Sun Rose Collection. This Collection celebrates being fearlessly feminine and looks to empower women and their individuality. The range centres around the starring note, the jasmine flower, which is both beautifully delicate yet exceptionally powerful. I think It’s the perfect scent to see us through the end of a beautiful Summer and take us into a crisp fresh Autumn.

Jasmine and Sun Rose Collection Molton Brown

The new Jasmine & Sun Rose fragrance is a mix of fruity and floral, layered with warm sexy feminine notes. It’s a real scent journey and I just love the boldness of the sharp fruity notes coupled with the more smooth and sexy notes of bergamot and musk. It is a real treat and I think it will be a great transitional scent as the seasons change.

As I mentioned this new collection is a celebration of fearless femininity and I’m totally onboard with that. I love anything that champions modern femininity. At its core, this Jasmine & Sun Rose collection is beautifully feminine but I also like that it has a rich, sexy, bold vibe to it too. I think it’s quite a contemporary feminine fragrance and one I think you’re going to love.

New Molton Brown Jasmine Sun Rose Collection

Opening with fresh Bergamot, Raspberry and soft Peach, the captivating scent is enhanced by a delicate heart of Rose, Jasmine and Osmanthus, before settling on a luxurious Patchouli and Musk base.

  • Top Notes: Bergamot, Raspberry, Peach
  • Heart Notes: Jasmine, Rose, Osmanthus
  • Base Notes: Labdanum, Patchouli, Musk

The peach and raspberry give this fragrance a real sweet fruitiness that has a juicy touch. The floral notes of osmanthus, jasmine and rose add a classic feminine layer whilst the notes of musk, patchouli and bergamot add that bold, modern sexy feel. This is a fragrance that works for day or night. When it is first spritzed you can really make out the fruity notes but once settled down the elegant, rich, sexy notes of musk and patchouli really come through.

Molton Brown Luxurious Fragrance

The packaging for this collection is simply stunning & to illustrate the fragrance, Molton Brown has collaborated with acclaimed British artist Rhea Thierstein evoking the soul of this fragrance in her own piece of moving art. The bottles themselves are the classic Molton Brown deigns but the colours have a feminine peachy, pink hue and the gift boxes are just extra special. They look like a colourful marble effect and this is one box that I will be keeping, it really is too nice to throw away.

Molton Brown The Patisserie Parlour Collection

I’ve been trying out the trio of hand creams from the Gourmand Collections that are available in a beautiful Spring Indulgences Hand Cream Gift Set£25. All three hand creams smell incredible and are perfect for Spring / Summer. This non-greasy formula feels very hydrating and leaves your hands feeling soft, smooth and comfortable. These 40ml sized tubes are an ideal size and will mean you will be able to leave one on your desk, by your bed and of course in your handbag.

So let Molton Brown take you on a journey through the English countryside this Spring.

Comice Pear & Wild Honey / London via Gloucestershire

‘An Orchard of pear trees, ripe with plump fruit. Rambling wildflowers scattered in the grass. The charming hum of honey bees. Melt into the warmth of sun-drenched English meadows.’

This has such a sweet, crisp scent and it very much reminds me of warm Summer evenings.

The fragrance opens with green leaves refreshed by hints of bergamot and layered with petals of gardenia. The heart reveals a juicy pear embellished by jasmine and lily of the valley, evolving into a base of mouth-watering honey, caramel and biscuit.

Molton Brown Hand Creams

Delicious Rhubarb and Rose / London via Yorkshire

‘A crimson summer tart. Freshly picked roses. Bowls of sugar, spice and all things nice. Treat your hands to a recipe of tart rhubarb with a citrus twist.’

This has a richly floral scent with a lovely zesty layer.

‘Rhubarb spikes a bitter top note assty fruits fizz with a citrus twist. These contrast with the sweetness of sugary tart in the base while gentle rose extract and vanilla bring to life the buttery pastry of dessert.’

Molton Brown The Patisserie Parlour Gourmand Collection

Lily of the Valley & Star Anise Hand Cream / London via Cornwall

‘A luxurious moisturising hand cream blended with white truffle extract and scented with floral notes of lily of the valley and magnolia.’

I live in Cornwall so I feel like this is the scent for me, it’s a pretty mix of Spring floral notes that are quite light but have a classic timelessness about them. This is going straight into my handbag.

This indulgent fragrance is blended with lily of the valley and star anise, enhanced by floral notes of magnolia and ylang-ylang for instant hydration. 

Why not Indulge your Mum with something from this limited edition Gourmand Collection, featuring a hand wash £18, hand lotion £23, hand cream £10 and a fantastic selection of gift sets available now at Molton Brown

Timothy Dunn THE VOTIVE COLLECTION

Timothy Dunn THE VOTIVE COLLECTION

Timothy Dunn The Votive Collection*

I was first introduced to Timothy Dunn back in 2015 when I fell in love with their exquisite Arabian Fig Candle and over the past two years I’ve enjoyed discovering more about this brand. I not only fell in love with Timothy Dunn’s luxurious candles but also their story and passion for quality and I think that is always something worth supporting.

Timothy Dunn is a small family run business based from their home city of London. Since opening their first florist in back in 1989 they continue to grow. From their love of flowers and a passion for travel they initially created bespoke candles for top clients and after proving popular the Timothy Dunn luxury scented candle range was born.

Each of their candles comes beautifully presented, set within a beautiful hand-blown glass and I have repurposed all the jars after the candles have burnt down, they’re just too pretty to throw away.

Timothy Dunn Candles THE VOTIVE COLLECTION

The Votive Collection is a trio of deluxe travel sized candles that come in three beautiful luxurious scents. I’m no stranger to the Arabian Fig scent but the other two candles in this set I’m excited to be trying for the first time.

Arabian Fig – Wild Fig & Cashmere Wood

A complex blend of green fig leaf, basil and clove, tenderly enhanced with frankincense, this deliciously aromatic candle has a hint of wild fig, cassis rose and jasmine with the rich base notes of sandalwood, cedarwood and musk.

Violette de Lune – Neroli & Wild Jasmine

This deep, exotic, floral scent is intertwined with seductive amber woods and elegant musks, opening with cassis and dark violet. An indulgent blend of the precious oils Moroccan rose and neroli flower are combined with sensual sandalwood, patchouli, red tea, wild jasmine and a hint of luxurious dark chocolate

Samarkand – Suede Musk & Patchouli

Discover a rich, sensual spicy wood accord with exotic tea, bergamot, cardamom, ginger, cinnamon and clove; generously wrapped in sumptuous Madagascan vanilla, suede musks, frankincense, patchouli and vetiver.

All three candles in this collection are sophisticated, rich and quite masculine which is right up my street. Timothy Dunn candles burn very clean and evenly, with no sooty residue, their rich scent fills your entire home and lingers long after you blow them out. Each 70g Votive candle has a burn time of 15 – 20 hours. I tend to burn mine for 1 – 2 hours a time and blow them out because the scent is that strong it will still fill your room for hours after its stopped burning, which I love!

Timothy Dunn Luxury Candle Collection

THE VOTIVE COLLECTION from Timothy Dunn

This collection feels and looks very luxurious, right from the outer packaging to the scent of the candles, you just get the feeling that no expense has been spared. The Votive Collection comes beautifully packaged in a Limited Edition Gift Box which makes it the perfect gift for Valentines Day or as an extra special treat to yourself!

I know more expensive luxury candles are not for everyone but if your budget can stretch or if you are able to ask for one for a special occasion I can’t recommend Timothy Dunn Candles enough, the quality, burn time and wonderfully intense scent are more than worth the price tag. This particular collection would make the most thoughtful gift and It is also a great way of introducing someone to Timothy Dunn scents, especially if they love their luxury candles.

You can get this beautiful Votive Collection here for £60 and until February 14th Timothy Dunn are offering 20% off with code LOVETDL

This Timothy Dunn London Votive collection is the ultimate gift of luxury for yourself or a loved one to enjoy all year round.

Queen Tea Beauty Products

Queen Tea products are inspired by both the British tradition of Afternoon Tea and India’s approach to Tea and Wellbeing. Their beautiful range of products is designed to help you relax and unwind whilst being pampering and nourishing for your skin.

I’ve been testing out The Really Relaxing Detox Box & The Green Tea Body Scrub – both products come beautifully packaged with that handmade personal touch. I think they would make lovely gifts for anyone that is bath obsessed (like me).

‘A range of 100% natural skin food inspired by Afternoon Tea. We freshly produce with clean ingredients that benefit your skin and have spent time researching the best ingredients to help you really tea-tox your way to happiness. Welcome to your tradition of ‘Me-Time’.

Queen Tea Bath Products

The Really Relaxing Detox Box* 

Before you even open the box you can already smell the beautiful chamomile, rose and lavender aromas seeping out. Inside you get 2 ‘Tea Bags’ which are full (jam packed full) of beautifully scented salts, petals, flowers, leaves and essential oils. You also get one sachet of Mini Milk.

All you need to do is pop one tea bag in your bath and let all the goodness seep into your bath water – when your bath water is brewed you add two tbsp of Mini Milk and sit back and relax.

The Mini Milk which you sprinkle into your bath water is a blend of Cocoa Butter, Milk and Oat Bran and it leaves your skin feeling soft, soothed and very nourished. You can purchase these Milk sachets separately too.
Detox Box by Queen Tea

I thought the whole experience was lovely and relaxing, my bathroom smelt beautiful and my skin felt soothed and soft. I really like that all of the ingredients are 100% natural and the packaging is environmentally friendly too.

Queen Tea Cosmetics are also proud to donate 10% of profits from the Detox Boxes to the Trussell Trust, to raise awareness for UK hunger poverty.

Green Tea Body Scrub* 

This scrub comes in a cute tin which Queen Tea Cosmetics encourage you to reuse (I’m already using mine to store my washi tape in). The scrub itself looks a little scary at first, because it’s bright green in colour & looks like slimmer from Ghostbusters but rest assured its nothing to be afraid of.

The scrub is jam-packed with lots of natural ingredients like anti-oxidant rich Green Tea, Coconut Oil, Salt & Sugar as well as Eucalyptus and Peppermint Essential Oils. It’s a very effective scrub and the salt & sugar are great, providing just the right amount of scrub to remove dead skin, grime and dirt to leave your skin smooth and soft.

It does smell uplifting and fresh, so it’s nice to use in the morning to help you feel energised and get your skin ready for the day. I will say make sure you wash this off thoroughly otherwise you may just end up with green towels (lesson learned).

I have been using this twice a week and after 8 uses I still have a good amount of scrub left so it does last a good amount of time

Queen Tea Green Tea Body Scrub

So if you know anyone who is tea obsessed and that likes a good pamper session then I think anything from Queen Tea Cosmetics would be an ideal gift. As I said they come beautifully packaged and as a brand, they have a wonderful ethos and its nice to support that.

Let me know what you are tempted to try.
