Geranium Nefertum by Molton Brown

With a new season comes another release from Molton Brown, one of my favourite bath and body brands. I've been a lover of their products for many years and have tried a number of their collections but this is completely different to anything they've released before and what I've tried before. 

Geranium Nefertum is available to buy now and features four products within the collection and as it's a unisex scent, it's perfect for all. I honestly wasn't sure on first look but the fragrance has really grown on me the last couple of weeks and the other half must be a fan as he's already had the deodorant away. 

The fragrance is described as an unconventional interpretation of a green chypre also knows as Cyprus. It takes a classic structure and adds an abstract twist creating something completely out of the ordinary. The scent is crafted with minty geranium sourced from Nile Delta and it's name, Nefertum is a nod to the ancient god of perfume. Molton Brown say the scent is a celebration of gender fluidity thanks to it's androgynous feel which I think is the perfect way to describe this. 

Top notes: Fig leaf accord and bergamot
Heart notes: Geranium and jasmine
Base notes: Labdanum, oakmoss accord and sandalwood

This fragrance dares tobe at ease with somethingthat is not usual. Cool figleaf mingles with green figfruit and milky sandalwood to transform a chypre structure. Bergamot, cistus, labdanum and most interestingly geranium inspire an abstract, androgynous sophistication.

You can experience the collection with bath products or fragrance, all of which I've been trying out the last couple of weeks. As you know, my shower is full of Molton Brown Shower Gel (£22.00) so adding another to the shelf makes me very happy. The shower gels create a super soft lather that feels beautiful on skin and as you don't need much, the price doesn't seem so steep although I do believe we all need a luxurious bath treat every now and then and this is a brand I will always turn to for that.

The Molton Brown Body Lotion (£26.00) is one of the best luxury lotions I've used and it's almost always what I reach for to give my skin a real treat. It's thick but soaks in well meaning you don't have to bounce around waiting for it to dry and the scent really does linger. Paired with other products in the collection, you'll be smelling beautiful all day long.

I like to think I'm pretty clued up on Molton Brown products but it turns out you can also buy a number of their fragrance collections in deodorant form including Geranium Nefertum Deodorant (£20.00). I've always been a Dove gal so I've never really had to look before. It smells great, doesn't seem too wet and the scent hangs around, Arran has had this away so these are his words on the deodorant and not mine but I think he's pleased with this one. 

The final item is of course the Geranium Nefertum Eau de Toilette available in 50ml (£45.00) and 100ml (£69.00). The reason I love their fragrances so much is because of their sleek yet understated bottles and a scent that lasts. All too often I've tried perfumes that seem to disappear after an hour or so but Molton Brown's don't do that. They're fragrances really are quite unique so you'll always feel like you're wearing something special too. 

You really must try one if you haven't done so already

You can discover Geranium Nefertum and more on and with a number of products and gift sets to choose from, I'm sure something will catch your eye.
