Molton Brown takes you on a journey with their new Navigations Through Scent Fragrance Collection, consisting of five varied and distinct artisanal fine fragrances that can be worn by both sexes.
Taking a timely journey into the world of fine fragrance, Molton Brown has developed a beautiful concept about how these scents can trigger a memory and the imagination, allowing the mind to reach further and deeper into past times, places and settings.
The Navigations Through Scent Collection delves into the heritage of perfume, tracing its influences back to the ancient spice route, where rarity and the high value of the ingredients made trading along this trail both exhilarating and perilous. The journey starts in the Ancient World, the birthplace of fragrance â€“ Egypt, China and Indonesia, then over to England for trade, before entering the New World in Canada.
These timeless fragrances contain sophisticated and perfectly balanced blends of rare ingredients, individually containing a lead ingredient from each country, bringing this historic tale to the modern day.
The collection was created by perfumer Jennifer Jambon (BTS images of Jennifer working are included in the gallery) who has worked across Chile, Switzerland, Ireland and London and in 2008 she won the title of International Creative Perfumer from the French Society of Perfumers.
“I dream of perfume. And perfume makes me dream” says Jennifer.
My personal favourite would have to be LIJIANG, which contains osmanthus absolute, a rare and delicate flower that is native to China and highly prized for its fruity-floral aroma. The smell is sweet and warm, but not too overpowering.
Sassi loves ROGART, a woody-fresh fragrance that smells a bit masculine and sexy. It contains essences of maple syrup, gaiac wood and fir balsam, the bark of a North American fir, native to Canada, that dries once in contact with air.
