Spice Up Your Bathroom Regime

We always associate pepper with the kitchen, and not the bathroom, but the latest collections from Molton Brown London are not only luxurious on the skin, they smell wonderful and put you in the mood for love.

Peppercorns, and grounded pepper, come in many varieties. You may be surprised, but other than black, white and green peppercorns, there are also, red, orange and pink ones, each processed differently and each adding a little spice to whatever they are used for.

I know what you’re thinking, but the award-winning Re-charge Black Pepper Collection For Men smells nothing like steak. The main active ingredient in this concoction, black pepper oil, is obtained by crushing black pepper corns and has anti-oxidant properties. Did you know that pepper has always been used in medicines before they became a condiment? Mixed into a rich fusion of other earthly delights, this sensual and stimulating body wash and body hydrator combo warms your skin as you shower or soak in the bath, leaving your body deeply cleansed and ready for action.

Like Eve to her Adam, Molton Brown’s Paradisiac Pink Pepperpod Collection was designed with the Femme Fatale in mind, and also as the perfect match to the aforementioned Black Pepper Collection. The seeds from the Brazilian pink peppertree were known in ancient times as the “grains of paradise” that grew only in the Garden of Eden, so this deeply bold and alluring scent that also contains African ginger and Patchouli is not for the faint-hearted. Step out of the shower with soft, conditioned skin and smelling like a goddess.

As you start your new life as husband and wife, nothing speaks of togetherness more than smelling like the perfect complement to each other. These delectable bath lines from Molton Brown are characteristic of their best-selling products that bring the spa right to your home. My recommendation? Soak yourselves in these seductive scents before bedtime and steam up your bedroom as well. Did I mention that peppercorns were used by the ancient Greeks, Egyptians and Romans as aphrodisiacs too?

The Molton Brown Re-charge Black Pepper and Paradisiac Pink Pepperpod Collections are exclusively available at Ngee Ann City #B1-51, Raffles Hotel #01-26 Raffles Hotel Arcade, and Tangs Orchard Level 2. For more information, visit
