Flora Luminare loosely translates as ‘flowers and light’. a fitting name for Molton Brown’s joyful solar, white floral fragrances. This fragrance will take you to the luminosity of flowers. Flora Luminare is blissfully balanced floral woody musk fragrance that shines bright. The fragrance is for both men and women.
This fragrance was launched in 2019 but the brand has expanded the Flora Luminare Collection with Bath & Shower Gel, Glowing Body Oil, and Hand Cream.
Inspired by the idyllic Tahitian Punaauia beach, this fragrance pays tribute to the Tiare flower. Tahitian women have, for centuries, macerated it in coconut oil and applied to their hair as a love philtre.
