Mollisher's Mark:

Utterly feminine, powdery parma violets melt intriguingly into fresh rosewood and pure vanilla, infused with a hint of cinnamon, nutmeg and exotic sandalwood in the pure jojoba oil base. Reminiscent of decadent boudoirs, silk stockings draped nonchalantly over the dressing table- the subtle naughtiness of a bygone era; Mollisher's Mark is a long-lasting, uniquely spiced yet subtly floral fragrance, for ladies with pouty lips and a knowing wink...

The word "mollisher" is an old Victorian slang term for a woman of rather dubious moral virtue, often a villain's mistress (hence the more modern phrase 'gangster's moll').



Mollisher: A woman, often a villain's mistress.

Beyond the Pale is an exclusive perfumery based in Royal Tunbridge Wells in the UK.

Using historic recipes and pure essential oils whenever possible, all our fragrances at Beyond the Pale are hand-blended to perfection, poured into amber glass bottles and nestled in classic black sturdy boxes for posting, tied with ruby red string.

We believe that perfumes should be as individual as you are; as intriguing and bewitching as the historical ages they were inspired by. Designed for Ladies & Gentlemen of discernment & distinction, we strive never to be nondescript - always beyond the pale, for your pleasure and delectation...

Mollisher's Mark is our latest fragrance to be released and completely sold out on the day of being launched! This is our second batch, so NO DILLY-DALLYING, dahlings, if you want some!






Tested on the people who made it, not animals! We never use animal ingredients, either.

Presented in our full-size 10ml amber glass bottle with integral non-spill dripper cap, Mollisher's Mark is £9.99 + £1.50 UK P&P or £3 International (worldwide) P&P.

These perfume oils last & last - you only need a few drops at a time rubbed into wrists, neck & cleavage for an enticing waft of perfume to follow you around all day!

PAYPAL only at the moment, please: suzy@beyondpale.co.uk

Please mark payments "Mollisher's Mark Full Size" in the title of the paypal's Send Payment or somewhere in the "message to seller" box on the payment page. Thank you, darlings!

Literary description of a Mollisher...

(from The Amateur Gentleman - Farnol, Jeffery, 1878-1952

“I ewentually turned honest all along of a flash, morning-sneak covess as got 'erself conwerted."

"What do you mean by a morning-sneak covess?"

"I means a area-sneak, sir, as vorks werry early in the morning. A fine 'andsome gal she vere, and vith nothing of the flash mollisher about 'er, either, though born on the streets, as ye might say, same as me. Vell, she gets con-werted, and she's alvays napping 'er bib over me,--as you'd say, piping 'er eye, d'ye see? vanting me to turn honest and be con-werted too. 'Turn honest,' says she, 'and ve'll be married ter-morrow,' says she."

"So you turned honest and married her?" said Barnabas, as Mr. Shrig paused.

"No, sir, I turned honest and she married a coal-v'ipper, v'ich, though it did come a bit 'ard on me at first, vos all for the best in the end, for she deweloped a chaffer,--as you might say, a tongue, d' ye see, sir, and I'm vun as is fond of a quiet life, v'en I can get it.”


NB: In the Victorian era it was common for Cockneys & lower class Londoners to replace 'w's with 'v's in speech, and therefore this was represented by authors of the period in the text, too. You very often find this in Dickens, for example.
