Deacon is excited to create an exclusive keepsake for Molton Brown
Bath, body and beauty product brand Molton Brown has celebrated its fortieth year with a VIP party and the launch of a limited edition candle snuff lid.
On Wednesday, British brand Molton Brown
celebrated 40 years of "blending with attitude" at the Institute of Contemporary Arts, London with British fashion designed Giles Deacon and a range of VIP guests.
To commemorate the important landmark, Molton Brown has partnered with Deacon to create a limited edition candle snuff lid, which will be exclusively sold in-store at Harrods and online at www.moltonbrown.co.uk.
Inspired by Molton Brown’s seventies roots, the design fuses Deacon's trademark playful style with the eccentric personality of London’s bath, body and beauty connoisseurs. The keepsake marks Molton Brown’s journey from hand-mixing products above a salon in London’s South Molton Street in 1973 to becoming a global luxury brand, with products available in over 70 countries worldwide.
Speaking about the project Deacon said: “I love Molton Brown – it’s a brand I have grown up with. They have always been champions of quirky, colourful design and are proud of their strong British heritage which is something I admire. I wanted to create a timeless design that nods to seventies London style – a bit eccentric but fun with a sense of humour.”
The limited edition snuff lid complements Molton Brown’s recently launched anniversary edition Patchouli and Saffron Single Wick Candle, which is part of a wider collection for bath, home and suitcase. The new Molton Brown scented candle has a seventies-inspired fragrance which blends top notes of hot pimento berry, caraway and bergamot, all housed in hand-blown glass.
In homage to the brand's heritage, guests at the Molton Brown anniversary party were transported to a seventies-inspired luxury apartment and treated to DJ sets from History Clock founder Nathan Gregory Wilkins and Deacon himself, as well as an acoustic set from singer-songwriter Delilah.
