If you’re hankering after a new fragrance to snuggle up to, look no further than this heady, resplendent masterpiece. Any one of Molton Brown’s collectible, refillable glass bottles with the signature spherical resin cap would look majestic on your vanity, but this unique scent brings together the Rolls-Royce of fragrance ingredients with notes of saffron, black tea, rose, and oudh. As it is heady in olfactory nature you would expect overpowering notes on the nose, but the resinous woody scent profile surprises with unexpected hits of honeyed freshness in the opening and notes of davana, bergamot, cardamom, and black pepper.
Molton Brown Mesmerising Oudh Accord & Gold EDP 100ml, R2 875
