Molton Brown’s Suede Orris with a TR exclusive gift box

Molton Brown unveils TR exclusive support for its new Suede Orris fragrance

Molton Brown is launching an exciting new fragrance collection ‘Suede Orris’ into the P&C market, in the lead up to Mother’s Day on 31 March. Suede Orris will debut in travel retail stores 6 March in the United Kingdom. Specifically for travel retail, Molton Brown has created exclusive luxury illustrated gift box.

“Soft Rules”

The launch will allow Molton Brown to reach into a new fragrance territory as it increases its range of luxury scents and reinforces its fragrance credentials. The fragrance has been created by Molton Brown’s Jérôme Di Marino. The tag line for this new floral and powdery launch is “Soft Rules”. It alludes to both the softness of the fragrance and the total creative freedom the perfumer enjoyed to craft this fragrance.

“This fragrance came from my private collection, which is the key to enjoying unfiltered creativity. Upon discovering this, Molton Brown really embraced the lack of rules which led to a modern interpretation of the noble, Florentine precious perfumery gesture of orris-scented gloves. Rich, pure orris absolute is wrapped as a soft, smooth suede caress for a quietly confident scent.” Jérôme Di Marino, Perfumer

Activation

The Suede Orris travel retail campaign will run in airports, including Dufry World Duty Free stores such as Heathrow, Gatwick, Stansted, Manchester, Edinburgh and Glasgow, as well as in Lagardère stores such as Luton and London City airports.

The TR exclusive gift box for this occasion features suede swirls and iris flowers illustrations, reflecting the Suede Orris fragrance composition and the perfumer’s inspiration.
