I'm Constantly Getting Compliments Thanks to This Lesser-Known Fragrance Brand

Looking for another excuse to expand your fragrance collection? Here's one: British luxury fragrance brand Molton Brown has a line of unique and sophisticated perfumes that you'll want to get your hands on, asap.

The brand was founded in 1971 and has since established a reputation for itself as one of the premiere British makers of fragrance. However with that said, the brand is, in my opinion, still hugely underrated. It often gets overlooked for the more obvious classic fragrance houses and high street names, which is a shame, because these perfumes are every bit as luxurious, and the blends are complex and interesting enough to guarantee you won't smell like anybody else in the room.

When I myself wear my favourite Molton Brown scent, Heavenly Gingerlily, it never fails to draw in compliments from those around me—especially when I use the matching body lotion and hand cream. Each Molton Brown scent has a corresponding line of bodycare and home fragrance products to sit alongside it, so you can enhance the scent of your eau de parfum or eau de toilette with some effortless fragrance layering.

For a perfume novice, Molton Brown is the perfect entry into the brilliant (and often complex) world of luxury fragrances that, while at a higher price point, offer the wearer an olfactory experience like no other. And for those who consider themselves a connoisseur of scent already, the brand offers a host of underrated and innovative fragrances that you've probably never heard of.

Keep reading to find out which of Molton Brown's iconic scents should be on your radar.
