London’s fragrance experts Molton Brown have released a beautiful limited edition collection just in time for Mother’s Day. The Patisserie Parlour is made up of three Gourmand scents, including
- Exquisite Vanilla and Violet Flower
- Delicious Rhubarb and Rose
- Comice Pear and Wild Honey
All three scents have been expertly crafted with the very best seasonal ingredients sourced from the English countryside, celebrating the brand’s proud British heritage.
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.
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.’
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.
