Like masculine scents? This one's for you!




Molton Brown Pink Pepper Eau Fraiche starts off warm, woody and citrusy

After a minute or so, the citrusy notes of tangerine are still prominent but not as sharp as they start warming up with the spicy ginger (my favourite scent!) and the sweet cistus flower

The dry down in fact has no hint of citrusy notes at all, at which point it slowly shifts to the masculine fragrance category, in a good way. The very last hint of 'girliness' shall we say seems to have evaporated leaving a spicy and musky yet sensual scent lingering around.

Molton Brown describes this as spicy, humid and sensual. I would say it's all that and energising and comforting at the same time. Its not long lasting at all but the reasonably priced bottle leaves scope for another purchase without the thought of it making a hole in the wallet. 

It's definitely not a generic scent that's going to be universally loved so not something you would pick up as a present for someone who you're not sure will like it.

But if you are tired of sickly, sweet, floral scents and want a seasonal upgrade or more variety in your fragrance wardrobe, surely check out the Paradisiac Pink Pepperpod range where Molton Brown have introduced three new products namely the Eau Fraiche, a Body Scrub and a Scented Candle. Umm I already have my eyes on the delicious sounding candle!

This sounds lovely - I'm a big fan of their black pepper shower gel which I think might be meant for men, but hey, who's checking!
