HEAVENLY GINGERLILY Celebrating 50 Years of Molton Brown
We’re deeply proud to be celebrating 50 years of Molton Brown, which has inspired us to revisit our roots, and spotlight one of our iconic fragrances.
Heavenly Gingerlily is one of our earliest and most beloved collections, created in the most individual way; we’ve always believed in championing our perfumers’ unique expressions and nurturing their creativity. This bewitching, white-floral scent was a personal project of Master Perfumer Jacques Chabert – the perfumer we’ve had the longest standing friendship with over the years – making this, our 50th year, a meaningful time to pay homage to his original creation.
The idea for Heavenly Gingerlily blossomed when Jacques visited a botanical garden and discovered an exceptional type of ginger flower. Captivated by its heady, floral quality, he combined it with aquatic notes; in doing so, he put his own twist on the ‘90s marine perfumery trend. The result was a sensual fragrance veiled with warm, spicy tones and tropical wanderlust. Jacques initially named it ‘Gingerlily’, and we stayed true to his vision when we launched the collection that remains cherished to this day. We added ‘Heavenly’ because this is exactly the way the fragrance makes you feel.
I love to create fragrances that transcend trends. Heavenly Gingerlily captures that at its very essence. Its delicate yet sensuous floral signature is artfully tinged with piquant cardamom. It’s graceful and exudes an expressive aura through its flower-rich heart.” Jacques Chabert, Master Perfumer
