Molton Brown ‘Jubilant Pine & Patchouli’ Perfume Review
I am SO excited about this new Molton Brown fragrance! I absolutely love green fragrances and it’s quite rare that pine in used in perfumery, it’s a little more common in the world of candles and home fragrance, but really rare in personal fragrances, so I’m super excited for this release and it’s very different to what I expected… Let’s chat!!
Molton Brown Jubilant Pine & Patchouli opens with a burst of juniper berries; they are light, bright, sparkling and have a real effervescent feel to them. As I’m sure you know, juniper berries are a key ingredient in gin and there’s a real gin cocktails feel to this fragrance, which is emphasised by the soft cinnamon note. As for the pine accord, is less dark and woodsy than you might expect, instead it’s soft, green and more translucent pine. If you imagine light green spruce adorned with fairy lights, rather than a big woodsy pine tree… that’s what the pine is like, more of a suggestion than a focal point.
At the heart of the fragrance, there is delightful red fruits which mingle with the juniper berries, as well as textured notes of leathery suede and slightly sweet, resinous amber. Which blend beautiful with a warm and heavy base of vanilla, musk and patchouli.
Whilst I love a deep rich, woodsy pine fragrance for my home, it’s hard to imagine those accords translating into a personal fragrance. So instead, what Molton Brown have done is given us more of a party time gin-based cocktail with a hint of pine spruce. It’s sparkling, festive, filled with red berries, gourmand notes and a hint of christmas tree. It’s a unisex fragrance which has a real evening, party time atmosphere and a hint of vintage glamour. It reminds me a little of Juniper Sling by Penhaligon’s or Molton Brown’s own Vintage With Elderflower fragrance, but more gin and boozy. It’s light, bright, enjoyable, unique and perfect for the Christmas season! Fabulous!
