In our guest bathroom we have a matching set of Molton Brown Rose Granati hand wash and hand lotion. I save this for our guests as it is a bit special but don't be fooled by the name, there's not a rose in sight as Rose Granati is Moroccan for pomegranate whose rich juice, full of vitamins and protective tannins, are used in this luxurious hand wash.
Molton Brown are a rather classy company that started as a hair dressing salon in 1973 at 58, South Molton Street in London´s Mayfair . Their plant based beauty products started life being mixed by hand above the salon by Dale Daxon Bowers formerly employed by Mary Quant and are used by luxury hotels and airlines and are now sold in over 70 countries.
The hand wash is clear and comes in a 300ml understated see-through plastic bottle about 6" high with the Molton Brown motif on the back in rich plummy aubergine. The hand wash has the smallest hint of gold and pink to it. On the front of the bottle appears in a dark fawn colour "Molton Brown,London" and almost at the bottom ,rosé graniti, fine liquid hand wash. The amount, 300ml, 10fl oz also appears. The dark brown pump dispenser at the top sits on a shiny silver neck on which Molton Brown is embossed.
On one side of the bottle we are encouraged to " Refresh your hands with this sparkling blend of Moroccan Pomegranate and essential oils. More caring than soap, hands are left hydrated and supremely cared for while oils of ginger, laurel, black pepper and cardoman leave the skin with a warm spiced aroma."
Use and Opinion.
Simple, one push of the nozzle and sufficient of the clear almost gel-like scented hand wash arrives in you palm. Add water and wash! It foams up into warm scented froth very easily and gently cleans your hands. Once washed it rises off easily and leaves your hands soft and clean with a warm, haunting exotic scent(definitely different) which refreshes as well. The spicy scent lingers for hours and I can always tell if a guest has used it!
It is, to my mind, very expensive for a hand wash at around 19 pounds for 300ml but if you are looking for a quality gift or something that is used by the best airlines and hotels, Molton Brown is the one for you.
Have a look on their website for special offers. This hand wash is sometimes known as Pomegranate and Ginger, whatever it's name it is gorgeous.
4 from me as it is so expensive!
