Molton Brown: Tobacco Absolute

Molton Brown, London’s fragrance experts, launches their new men’s Tobacco Absolute Collection – the ultimate exploration of masculine, seasoned depth. Borne from the cultivated world of botany through the tobacco plant, it includes an eau de toilette and bath and shower gel.

Creator of the scent, Elsa Chabert of Fragrances Essentielles, comments, “Tobacco Absolute is a complex, warm combination of woods, Paraguayan tobacco, balsam and musks lifted by a hint of citrus. The mature authenticity of tobacco absolute balances the sensual depth of Peru balsam as it intermingles with Argentinian grapefruit and bergamot for a subtle though decisive freshness.”

The inspiration behind the blend is the distinguished, eighteenth century British botanist Dr. William Houstoun and his discovery of a tobacco plant specimen in South America – where Molton Brown also sourced their hero ingredient. Redolent of Molton Brown’s own nature of uncovering the world’s rarest ingredients, Houstoun’s pioneering spirit is contemporised in this nuanced, earthy scent. The intriguing fragrance further enriches this season’s leading men’s collection by bringing to life thestory of a modern botanist.

With its deep, profound presence, this collection is the perfect fragrance layering gift for him this autumn and winter.
