Bursting Cajun & Lime Collection
Talking about something NEW from Molton Brown today, oh and its LIMITED edition!
A couple of weeks ago I was very kindly sent the new Bursting Caju & Lime collection.
There is three items in the collection, a bath and shower gel, a body lotion and a Eau De Toilette.
Now I’m sure we’ve all heard or know about Molton Brown. But just incase; MB are renowned for their luxury bath and body care products, blending the finest ingredients and fragrances and can be found in most department stores, boots or standalone stores world-wide. – Basically they’re readily available, is what I’m trying to say.
This Bursting Caju & Lime scent is inspired by the fun and lively carnival lifestyle blended with Brazil’s signature caipirinha cocktail (mmm cocktails). Perfect timing to celebrate alongside the 2016 Olympics set in Rio – renowned for it extravagant carnival celebrations.
A citrusy blend of Lime, Grapefruit, Orange and Lemon brings a lively zing and colour to the scent. While crisp spearmint, sage, cypress and a dash of oak moss cool the tone making it the perfect combination of citrus and musk. (Erm okay why am I not a fragrance connoisseur already!?)
MB haven’t spared any detail with this new release. The packaging has also been tweaked to fit in with Brazilian Carnival inspo. The bottles are printed with metallic silver labelling; referencing the steel cocktail equipment and serving appliances. While the Eua De Toilette is encased in a luxury glass bottling with a vibrant lime green ombre effect throughout, similarly the box holding has both the vibrant lime green and metallic silver detailing.
The Bursting Caju & Lime Bath & Shower Gel (300ml £20.00) lives up to MB usual standard, a viscous consistency that morphs into a luxurious lather. Although this gel is unique with its “bursting beads” of yellow and green, not only does this make the bottle look AMAZINGLY cool on the shelf with its ‘confetti’ appearance, but these little beads burst during use releasing moisturising properties. It almost looks to good to use!
Onto the Bursting Caju & Lime Body Lotion (300ml £25.00), a refreshing light weight moisturiser. Perfect for those hot summer months. I can’t really say too much about this. It’s a good lotion but nothing to crazy special about it. But I do love the citrus scent and the fact it isn’t heavy at all!
Now for the Bursting Caju & Lime Eau de Toilette (30ml £39.00), for me this is a perfect summer scent; fresh and zingy. I’m sure if you’ve read some of my previous ‘fragrance’ posts you’ll know I’m a big citrus scent lover, so I knew immediately I would love this. Unfortunately if you’re not a fan of ‘Lime’ then this is definitely a no go area for you! But for all those who want an easy go to scent for summer then give this a go.
Thats all for today, I hope your all having a brilliant summer!
