Molton Brown celebrates two decades of Re-Charge Black Pepper fragrance
UK fragrance manufacturer Molton Brown is celebrating 20 years of its Re-Charge Black Pepper Collection.
The anniversary of this collection, which is a popular gift in the Molton Brown portfolio, coincides with Father’s Day on 19 June.
Re-Charge Black Pepper is a woody-citrus scent which has won many awards over the past two decades including Best Unisex Fragrance at the 2022 RSVP Awards for the Eau de Parfum.
Created by Master Perfumer Jacques Chabert in 2002, Re-Charge Black Pepper began as a personal project for Chabert, who was curious about fusing woody and citrus scents.
Molton Brown still has a long-standing friendship with Chabert, and his two daughters, Carla and Elsa, have both worked with Molton Brown in their own right, helping to make some of the brand’s fragrances.
The Re-Charge Black Pepper Collection features a wide selection of products in the travel retail market. Alongside the edp and edt, the Body collection includes Bath & Shower Gel, Body Lotion, Deodorant Spray and a Bath & Shower Gel Refill pouch.
Rosie Cook, Associate Director Travel Retail, Molton Brown, said: “We are thrilled to be marking 20 years of Re-Charge Black Pepper, which is a true icon in the Molton Brown portfolio and one of our most popular fragrance families.
“We know that iconic products are attractive to shoppers in the travel retail market today and that makes this the perfect opportunity to provide something truly special for shoppers returning to the travel market for their summer holidays.”
The edp opens with spicy notes accented by soft nuances of bergamot, enhanced with a signature note of myrtle pepper. Its drydown reveals oakmoss and woody depth.
The edt is a warm combination of black pepper, ginger and lemon. With aromatic coriander at the heart, it has a base of earthy vetiver.
Re-charge Black Pepper has a 100% vegan formula, is cruelty-free and made in England at the brand’s carbon-neutral factory.
The black pepper essential oil has received an Ecocert COSMOS certification, which ensures the responsible use of natural resources.
The 300ml Bath and Body bottles are made from 50% recycled plastic and the Bath & Shower Refill uses 63% less plastic compared to standard bottles.
