circa 1973

Molton Brown 40TH ANNIVERSARY40 years is a long time in any game and this year, Molton Brown is celebrating that very milestone with a Limited Edition Patchouli & Saffron Collection. A fitting tribute to the 70’s, the blend itself harks back to the year that ABBA first hit the airwaves with Ring, Ring. We are talking – 1973.

I’m a huge fan of Molton Brown and the journey from hand mixing products above a salon floor in South Molton Street to the present day where you’ll fine it in high-end department stores and 5 star hotels is impressive. I have to say that on first impressions, I had to reserve my judgement on this scent. It’s quite floral and the inclusion of rose is fairly prominent. The Body Lotion is way too feminine for a guy (in my opinion), the shower gel – that certainly has a summery appeal and wouldn’t be out of place on a summer holiday – when the sun is shining, it’s hot outside and cocktail hour is drawing near. Patchouli and Saffron does work for the candle and in true Molton Brown sytle – they have nailed the fragrance right there.
