Say hello to the latest release from fragrance experts Molton Brown. The Russian Leather Collection is sophisticated, dark and bold with a modern twist. It is one of those fragrances which makes you think “can I pull this off”? because although it is unisex it does have a masculine, gentleman feel to it. Personally, I think that sort of scent is intriguing and very sexy, especially on a woman. It is layered with notes which reflect a bygone age but Molton Brown have cleverly given it a fresh current feel.
The collection is inspired by the bygone Russian Leather making craft which is practised by only a few remote villages perched on forest edges. Taking inspiration from this complex craft, Molton Brown has tempered aged leather accord with fresh Siberian pine oil and trails of cade wood oil. This is deepened by resinous birch oil, an ingredient used since the 17 century to saturate Russian Leather giving it a unique durability and scent for the creation of boots, suitcases and bookbinding.
- TOP NOTES black tea, elemi and purple basil
- HEART NOTES Siberian pine, tobacco and birch.
- BASE NOTES leather accord, vetiver and cade.
So this collection brings it to life the rich history of the Russian Leather making craft and the products feel just as rich, layered and interesting. It really is a beautiful collection and one that is quite different to anything I have tried before. It seems that I have a love for woody, masculine scents and I am OK with that.
The collection includes
Molton Brown Russian Leather Eau de Toilette £39
Bath & Shower Gel £20
Single Wick Candle £39
Three Wick Candle £60
I highly recommend popping into a store & giving it a test, I think it will make a gorgeous Autumn / Winter scent and of course, Molton Brown products always make fantastic gifts.
