For 15 years Seabourn Cruise Liners have collaborated with Molton Brown offering their products onboard as complimentary amenities and last year Molton Brown created two bespoke fragrances for Seabourn. The Seabourn Collection has not been available to purchase until now! For a limited time only, the two fragrances are available instore and online.
The company describe their mission as “Cruising on a Seabourn ship is unlike any other form of travel. The experience is luxurious, yet relaxed — elegant, yet casual — sumptuous, yet understated. Our intimate ships visit the most desirable destinations worldwide, sailing to the heart of landmark cities, as well as to hidden gems where larger vessels cannot follow.”
First up is the Samphire & Eucalyptus range which consists of a Bath and Shower Gel and a Body Lotion and is a beautiful enlivening and rejuvenating scent.
Master Perfumer – Philippe Bousseton – “A revitalising fragrance ideal for bathing, where samphire and marine notes are reminiscent the Seabourn experience.”
Top Notes include Cardamom, Bergamot, Mint & Petitgrain, heart notes contain Eucalyptus, Freesia, Violet & Marine Notes while the base notes include Samphire, Cedarwood, Musk & Labdanum (sweet, woody note).
The second range is Basil & Vetiver which is available as a Shampoo and a Conditioner. This is a fresh and elegant scent and is my favourite (I actually wish it was available as a Shower Gel).
Master Perfumer Heidrun Harder – “A very sophisticated, rounded and clean fragrance thanks to aromatic notes of basil and vetiver, perfect for hair care”.
Top notes contain Mandarin, Bergamot & Petitgrain, heart notes are Basil, Cardamom & Mace (a spicy note) while base notes include Vetiver, Cedarwood & Musk.
One of the things I love most about Molton Brown, besides their sublime products is the attention to detail. Unlike the usual bright colours of Molton Brown bottles, the Seabourn Collection packaging is predominately white to reflect the gleaming white ships. Added to the white are sophisticated hand drawn illustrations by British artist Angela McKay who lives and works in Brighton.
Seabourn President, Richard Meadows said, “We worked very closely with the Molton Brown team to develop these unique fragrances, resulting in completely bespoke blends and packaging designs that reflect Seabourn’s luxurious guest experience. The scents should evoke strong memories of wonderful experiences for any guest who has sailed with us since these scents first rolled out last year.”
For those who can’t make it aboard, the Seabourn Collection is available for a limited time from Molton Brown stores and online. Purchase two products from the range and receive a limited edition Summer Travel Bag.
