Molton Brown Orange & Bergamot Bath Oil
If you’re wondering about that awesome tulip bowl arrangement – it was made for me by one of my friends, Sian, who is next level on floral arrangements. I love it so much I couldn’t resist making two posts with the same backdrop. So, this isn’t a new fragrance range for Molton Brown but there are a couple of new products within the line of one of the brand’s most popular scents.
The Bathing Oil looks like liquid sunshine – it’s a smile maker even before you’ve put it anywhere near your bath! Once it’s in your hot water, it disperses as a milky, water soluble oil and the scent is a beauty. It’s a soapy, mellow citrus that’s more warm than fresh – rather enveloping actually and comforting, possibly down to the bottom ylang ylang notes because its such a nurturing fragrance. My bugbear with Molton Brown is that they make gorgeous scents but are just a tiny bit stingy when it comes to strength. The joy of surrounding yourself in an oil infused steaming bath is that the scent is so much part of what elevates it into pamper time rather than just getting washed time. You need a good scent that doesn’t leave you wondering if you can smell it or not after two seconds. I’d have preferred the scent dialled up two notches on this but still, I can’t say it’s not lovely because it is.
Next up is a new Radiant Body Polish with apricot kernels and orange peel. To be honest, it looks a little unappealing but if you like a mid-intensity scrub, then this certainly does the job. On the skin it feels like a fine grain salt scrub actually. I’m unsure of the soft bits – I don’t know what they’re adding apart from a bit of a ‘what is that?’ factor. I guess it makes a nice addition to a bath ritual and the scent is exactly the same as the oil so there’s nothing not to like there.
