Molton Brown’s Mahina a New Unisex Fragrance

When I first heard the tropical notes in the New Molton Brown Tahiti, I knew it would be a perfect scent for cold winter days. I figure if I can’t jump on a plane and jet to Tahiti I could at least smell like I am sunning myself on a tropical beach.

The fragrance does not disappoint, the first notes of ylang-ylang and orange blossom as so warm and enticing. After it dried the notes of Jasmine, Vanilla and Cedarwood mingle and if you close your eyes you can almost feel the sand beneath your toes. Just don’t look down if your house is like mine its probably a smashed cracker or Legos. 

Mahina Unisex Fragrance

London via Tahiti

  • May Contain Sunshine.
  • Drop anchor in French Polynesia.
  • Hammock dozing in the shade. Hot skin, black sand.
  • A tiare flower tucked behind the ear.

The way we blend it:

  • A top note of ylang-ylang and fresh orange blossom.
  • Middle notes of Tahitian tiare, jasmine and frangipani.
  • A base of vanilla and cedarwood.

Molton Brown has launched ‘Mahina’, the latest addition to the brand’s fine fragrance collection, ‘Navigations Through Scent’.

‘Mahina’ (named after a region of Tahiti) takes inspiration from the laid back, sun-drenched island with its top notes of ylang-ylang and fresh orange blossom. This new artisanal blend heralds the next stopping point in Molton Brown’s unisex ‘Navigations Through Scent’ range of fine fragrances, which sees the brand travel to worldly destinations along the ancient spice route.

The new unisex fragrance from Molton Brown fuses tiare flower, the queen of Tahitian flowers, with base notes of vanilla and cedar wood to create a citrus-wrapped floral scent that perfectly evokes the translucent aqua lagoons and sandy shores of French Polynesia.

As Jennifer Jambon, Molton Brown’s Principal Perfumer explained: “‘Mahina’ is a bright, happy fragrance inspired by the idyllic white beaches of Tahiti. The blend of fresh citrus orange flower and ylang-ylang combined with the white floral heart of the tiare flower creates a beautifully balanced floral fragrance for both men and women.”

Tiare flowers, the lead ingredient in ‘Mahina’, are traditionally worn as necklaces in Polynesia, acting as a ‘living scent’ and, in some Pacific islands, women tuck the flowers behind their ears to signify their relationship status. It is one of the most costly ingredients in perfume, yet it remains prized for its unique floral aroma.
