Molinard Fragrance Review!

The lovely team over at allbeauty have sent over their AMAZING perfumes to try! I review them here, so if you're looking for a new scent, you may want to read this!

So I've been trying out 8 scents, and one thing that really caught my eye is how different the packaging is for all the scents instead of them all having the same type of vibe! 

About The Brand

Molinard was founded in 1849 in France. It's now been around for 5 generations. At the time, even Queen Victoria was attracted to the fragrances! In 1932, Molinard won awards for the most beautiful bottle in the world, at the New York World's Fair! Their most attractive fragrance, Habanita was produced in the 1920's, and it's still the same beautiful notes as it was then. Allbeauty are the exclusive retailers of Molinard in the UK! 

Let's get into my reviews of the perfumes! 

This is the scent for this time of the year for me! I am really into ginger at the moment, and this is perfect as it has notes of spicy ginger.
The packaging is also so cute and romantic!

Top notes: Bergamot, Orange, Mandarin, Grapefruit, Verbena.
Middle notes: Petit grain, Ginger, Nutmeg, Jasmine.

Molinard Vanille Fruitée

This is PERFECT for a more younger clientele! The sweet notes in this make it a great gift for a first high end fragrance! I'm in love with the purple packaging.

Top notes: Bergamot, Carnation.
Middle notes: Orchid, Vanilla, Heliotrope, Raspberry, Solar Notes.

Secret Sucré de Molinard

If you love a rich sent, you'll love this honey infested perfume. It's a really nice sweet scent, but not too overpowering at ALL. The packaging on this one is bulkier than others, but I really like that in a perfume, shows it's good quality! 

Olfactive family: Amber, Gourmand

Top notes: Nougat, Powdery Notes.
Middle notes: Egyptian Jasmine, Kashmiri Wood, Indian Sandalwood.

This is a VERY woody fragrance. If you love a woody scent, this is probably your go to eau de toilette. This is so travel friendly, for the very simple yet nice packaging it comes in! 

Olfactive family: Aromatic, Woody.

Top notes: Lemon, Mandarin, Green Apple, Pineapple.
Middle notes: Lavender, Geranium, Jasmine, Sandalwood.

Chypre Charnel

I'm in LOVE with the packaging on this one! This scent has the perfect combination of floral and fruity, yet is not so overpowering! It's a very natural scent!

Olfactive family: Chypre, Floral

Top notes: Bergamot, Orange, Lemon, Peach.
Middle notes: Jasmine, White Flowers, Bulgarian Rose, Iris.

Fleur de Chocolat

Here's a scent for all you chocolate lovers out there! This is another great perfume for a younger market, it's got a lovely refreshing smell to it! A great travel friendly perfume with the packaging again!

Olfactive family: Gourmand

Top notes: Blackcurrant, Green Apple, Mandarin, Milk Chocolate.
Middle notes: Dark Chocolate, Fleur de Vanille.
Base notes: White Musk, Praline, Sandalwood.


One of the most beautiful packaging to ever exist on a perfume, ever. Another one with some chocolate notes, it's a perfect blend of sweet and citrus notes! This is probably my fave packaging out of all the Molinard perfumes I've tried!

Top notes: Bergamot, Mandarin, Magnolia, Nectar of Peach.
Middle notes: Exotic Fruits, Orchid, Rose, Violet Petals.

And finally, a classic. This is a GREAT combination of woody, oriental and floral notes to create a unique scent on EVERY woman. I loved the scent, as it was super unique and unlike anything I had smelt before! If you're going to try one, I think it HAS to be this one!

Olfactive family: Floral, Woody, Powdered Oriental

Top notes: Geranium, Mastic, Petit Grain, Ylang-Ylang.
Middle notes: Vetiver, Cedar, Heliotrope, Jasmine, Centifolia Rose, Mimosa, Ylang-Ylang, Nutmeg.

Overall, from my experience with Molinard fragrances, there's definitely a variety of notes and scents, that it would be hard NOT to find one you like! I'd definitely give this brand a go, especially if you're on the hunt for a new fragrance! 


  1. I love a good perfume, very nice
    Jesus Christ is the reason of my celebration. What is the Purpose of your celebration?

  2. The word perfume is one of the broadest categories. Perfume refers to body scents and particular types of perfume. Scented creams, lotions and body washes do not come under the perfume category. ابراهيم القرشي
