Vetiver Meets Grapefruit!
Recently, I had the opportunity to check out the latest and greatest from Molton Brown at one incredibly fun event! To support their latest “Vetiver & Grapefruit” collection, Molton Brown hosted a preview session at the lavish Mondrian London hotel. No one was ready for this ultimate smell and tasting experience. So, I cannot wait to tell you all about it now! *hashtag build the tension*
The fragrance expert, Virginie Danau, kicked off the night by introducing the new collection. She gave guests samples of both vetiver and grapefruit notes separately… So, they could better understand this contradictory yet fun pairing.
“Vetiver & Grapefruit has been skillfully constructed to play on contrasting aromatic materials: the warm sophistication of Haitian vetiver conflicts with the cool, tonic freshness of grapefruit resulting in a tense union. A closer look at vetiver oil reveals subtle grapefruit undertones – just enough to relieve this tension and convey a sense of effortless elegance. Enriched by the juiciness of lychee, floral accents of neroli and rose and livened up by the spice of white pepper and cardamom, the fragrance is highly addictive.” – Virginie Daniau, Fragrance Expert
I personally find this scent very innovative because it creates friction but finds a cultivating balance at the same time.
Cocktails with a twist…
Later in the evening, we were taken next door to a cocktail making class. *oh dear, I smell trouble* We had a chance to create 4 classic cocktails but with a #BuildTheTension twist. As someone who likes to enjoy a cocktail or two… I wasn’t good at creating a decent drink for everyone. *not ashamed to admit it* Nevertheless, I had a blast! *yay*
Molton Brown is one of my favourite brands out there. Their signature fragrances, shower gels, and hand care luxuries are always my top choice for any gifting occasion. Father’s Day is just around the corner, tho! *hint hint, nudge nudge*
