Molton Brown are a quintessential British company, the finest of ingredients are expertly blended in London, their collection of signature fragrances for her and him, bath and shower gels and home and hand care luxuries have claimed iconic status with their vibrant colours and bold scents.With ingredients carefully sourced from around the world, each creation is intricately composed by some of the world’s best perfumers for a truly indulgent and memorable experience.
Of course, their latest concoction reflects this this trait with the launch of their new men’s Tobacco Absolute Collection, is an exploration of masculinity. Borne from the cultivated world of botany through the tobacco plant, it includes an eau de toilette, bath and shower gel and deodorant.
The inspiration behind this blend is the distinguished, eighteenth century British botanist Dr.William Houstoun and his discovery of a tobacco plant specimen in South America. Houston, originally born in Renfrewshire, Scotland and who’s writings and plant specimens, now preserved in the botanical department of the British Museum was a leading botanist. Following in Houstoun’s footsteps Molton Brown when also sourced their hero ingredient for the same area. Redolent of Molton Brown’s own nature of uncovering the world’s rarest ingredients, Houstoun’s pioneering spirit is contemporised in this nuanced, earthy scent.The intriguing fragrance further enriches this season’s leading men’s collection by bringing to life the story of a modern botanist.
Creator of the scent, Elsa Chabert of Fragrances Essentielles, comments,“Tobacco Absolute is a complex, warm combination of woods, Paraguayan tobacco, balsam and musks lifted by a hint of citrus.The mature authenticity of tobacco absolute balances the sensual depth of Peru balsam as it intermingles with Argentinian grapefruit and bergamot for a subtle though decisive freshness.”
