Introducing Molton Brown: Russian Leather Collection

We’re always impressed with the collections from Molton Brown, and their latest addition to the range doesn’t disappoint.

Russian Leather is inspired by the aromas of the Siberian Wilderness, combining leather accord with pine oil to create a rich and enigmatic fragrance. It’s intensely woody and will leave an unforgettable impression wherever you go. It’s an strong fragrance that has perfectly blended top, heart and base notes to create a scent that is striking and unique.

What are the fragrance notes?

Top notes of black tea, elemi and purple basil open up the scent to give an instant earthy fragrance. This is shortly followed with the introduction of the heart notes; siberian pine, tobacco and birch. The heart notes add depth to the fragrance, combining woody and deeo tones. Finally, you’re left with the base notes of leather accord, vetiver and cade that elegantly combine fresh and rich notes to leave a long-lasting impression.

What inspired the range?

The perfumer Loїc Bisceglie has an unconventional approach to fragrance. Understanding that unusual fragrances have to be cleverly balanced, Russian Leather was created. Loїc wanted to create a scent inspired by the forest, reminiscent of the wood and the crackling camp fire. He was also inspired by his past, taking reference from when his grandfather would make leather in his workshop.

Russian Leather is unique because the notes of the fragrance are deep. It combines smoky and raw notes with intense natural notes to formulate a complex scent that takes your mind somewhere else.
