I like to think I’m more of a glass half full person, and despite this week being pretty terrible so far, and enduring a nasty headache today to top it off, I’m looking on the positive side! I now have a brand shiny new phone – more details to come on that soon, and I’ve just hit a couple of milestones on the blog too. I’m so happy to say that I now have 13000 Twitter friends, and 5000 followers on Bloglovin, thank you all so much! 🙂
Ok so back to the beauty stuff! It’s been a while since I’ve tried anything new from Molton Brown, so I was beyond excited when I heard about their new Dewy Lily of the Valley & Star Anise Collection. This gorgeous new range includes body washes, hand cream, candles, edt fragrance and some lovely gift sets too.
Molton Brown describe their new floral collection as ‘a modern interpretation of a classic scent, inspired by the elegant purity of a luxurious bridal bouquet.’
The story behind the collection celebrates leading note, lily of the valley, as the famous symbolic flower of the Flora Day festival in Helston, Cornwall. To mark the arrival of spring, the townspeople dress in white embellished with a fresh sprig of lily of the valley and dance through the picturesque streets.
The scent is clean and fresh, making you imagine just picked flowers on a spring morning, dew on the ground around you, and a warm stillness to the air. The sweetness of star anise blends wonderfully with the green top notes, and the floral heart of lily of the valley and magnolia marries beautifully with ylang-ylang to create a stunningly delicate yet distinctive fragrance, which is definitely one of my favourites so far from Molton Brown.
It’s also worth mentioning that Molton Brown have collaborated on this collection with London-based florists, The Flower Appreciation Society, to design a beautiful hand-drawn illustration of lily of the valley bells on the packaging for an extra special touch.
These products really are just gorgeous – I highly recommend you try something from this collection!
The Molton Brown Dewy Lily of the Valley & Star Anise Collection is available now from Molton Brown.
