Season yourself with the scent of pepper…

By Amy Lawrenson


Almost every fragrance I’m drawn to these days includes Pink Pepper (I’m wearing Ormonde Jayne Champaca – top note Pink Pepper - as I type). Roja Dove told me "it was discovered by a French Botanist... who found it gave an incredibly bright freshness with an under-note of spice". And it’s not just me who likes the spicy twist you get. Recent fragrance arrivals like Love Chloe, Givenchy Play and Play Intense, Gucci Guilty and Giorgio Armani Acqua di Gioia all include my beloved ingredient.


Despite appearances, it isn’t a new addition to the fragrance world; classics like Estee Lauder Pleasures, Marc Jacob’s Lola and Stella McCartney’s Sheer and Nude are all packed with it.

And much to my delight, today Molton Brown is launching a Pink Pepper bath & shower, bathing milk and body lotion using pink pepperpods sourced from Brazil.

Combined with ginger and patchouli the range smells warm and comforting; perfect for colder days and for layering under my favourite perfumes.
