Celebrating an Icon: Molton Brown presents the perfect gift for Father’s Day with the Re-Charge Black Pepper 20th Anniversary celebration

June 1, 2022

Molton Brown is creating the ultimate destination for distinctive gifts in travel retail this summer as the British fragrance brand celebrates 20 years of its iconic Re-Charge Black Pepper Collection. The anniversary of this collection, which is a timeless gifting favourite in the Molton Brown portfolio, perfectly coincides with the arrival of Father’s Day on 19th June. Re-Charge Black Pepper makes the perfect gift for any occasion, with its woody-citrus scent and enduring, universal appeal, which have won it numerous awards over the past two decades including most recently 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 Jacques, who was curious about fusing woody and citrus scents. Molton Brown is proud to still have a long-standing friendship with Jacques today and he also serves as an inspirational father figure for his daughters, Carla and Elsa, both of whom have worked with Molton Brown in their own right, helping to craft some of the brand’s best-loved fragrances. The Re-Charge Black Pepper Collection features a wide selection of luxuries, with something to suit every shopper in the travel retail market. Alongside both an Eau de Parfum and an Eau de Toilette, there is a Body collection including 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 Eau de Parfum opens with spicy notes accented by soft nuances of bergamot, enhanced with a signature note of striking myrtle pepper. Its drydown reveals voluptuous oakmoss and woody depth. The Eau de Toilette is a warm medley of black pepper, ginger and lemon. With aromatic coriander at the heart, it’s bolstered by a confident base of earthy vetiver. As part of Molton Brown’s ongoing dedication to creating luxury with a conscious care for the world, Re-charge Black Pepper has a 100% vegan* formula, is cruelty free and made in England at the brand’s Elsenham manufacturing facility, which is carbon-neutral. The black pepper essential oil has received an Ecocert COSMOS certification, which ensures the responsible use of natural resources. Plus, 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.**
