Molton Brown is announcing their first niche collection of fine fragrances inspired by a tour around the world - Navigations Through Scent. This exquisite collection made of the finest ingredients arrives on the market in September 2011. The house introduces five fragrances, each of them representing one location along the ancient spice route: Egypt, China, Indonesia, England and Canada.

Perfumer of this collection is Jennifer Jambon, who works as principal perfumer for Molton Brown.

Inspiration for the first fragrance of the collection, Iunu, is Egypt, one of the birthplaces of fragrance. This floral-spicy fragrance is based on white jasmine.

Flacons of these niche fragrances are all the same – very elegant, as if they were made of crystal. The see-through gems are topped with a silver stopper with inscribed names of fragrances. All fragrances will be available as 50 ml.

Thank you Fragmeister for your generous decant for me to try. I admit when I first applied this I was startled by its sweetness and thought it was quite feminine, but when it starts to dry down the black pepper comes to the fore and tones down the sweetness. I think the ylang-ylang adds a piquant note. I really cannot detect any jasmine in this, for which I am thankful as I don't like heavy jasmine. This is a pleasant, everyday sort of scent, one which is rather understated. I can visualise it in an office situation. Very glad to have tried it.

Tried it today in a MB branch in close proximity to a famous castle West of London.
The sales consultant was extrememly pleasant and knowledgeable. We both chatted "fragrance" and then she presented me with this intriguing concoction: very modern cotemporary scent.

Typical modern opening with (pink?) pepper, ginger and while not listed I somehow get pimento (red chilly), and as AMOUAGE was mentioned earlier in a review, I disagre with the "Jubilation XV" connotation (as that one is soo much more dense and sweet and has NO FLORALS WHATSOEVER)

To me it's more of a very light (diluted) blend of "Reflection" (the white jasmine = core note) combined with OPUS IV (the elemi, exotic note) by AMOUAGE and a really non-hippie modern Patchouli.

Of course a £65 EdT cannot be a strong and potent as the £165 EdP (AMOUAGE) and the whole product is lighter. Pleasantly so! We don't have to wear EdP ALL the time, do we?

I really love this for it is pleasantly exotic, well blended, interesting and I LOVE THE FLACON, handsome bottle with a safe and solid safe twist to open pump spray top. The entire bottle screams "well thought through and well made".

Being slightly spoilt by AMOUAGE, I think the projection and sillage could be stronger, but it is only an EdT and for that it is performing very well.

Seriously good for what I consider a great daytime winter (evening autumn fragrance).

I completely agree with 'sniffaholic'. The opening is rather floral yet confidently intoxicating but manages to not smell synthetic at all. What I love about this perfume is that with each sniff fresh ingredients spring to mind, whether its the dry down or top notes. It is also very similar to Amouage Jubilation Men without the thick Honey. The Myrrh is very prominent once the fragrance has dried down. Overall 4.5/5.

I ordered this based only on several reviews and descriptions and was not disappointed. It's opening is very exotic and spicy-- lots of piquant ginger, pepper and elemi oil--the top notes spin your head around the first time you smell it. Then it quickly settles down into warm florals with a hint of spice--think jasmine, iris, almost something chrysanthemum-y about it, though that's not an ingredient. The base is very warm and cozy-- woody amber and patchouli--and it stays on the skin for a very long time. I think this scent might be just as nice on a gent as it is on a woman. Maybe this is how George Clooney smells? If you buy the whole ancient Egypt marketing, then I think this is exactly how you might expect Nefertiti to smell. There's something exotic about it--yet it is not a loud scent and it politely stays within bounds (it is British, after all). Well done.
