Crabtree & Evelyn has just launched their new floral fragrance collection. On top of the Iris collection which I covered last September, the other fragrances are Lily, Lavender and Rosewater. And apart from Eau de Toilette you see here, body care and home fragrance products are also available.
The body care products under the new floral collections are all formulated with botanical extracts; while they are not 100% natural, the products are formulated to be free from paraabens parabens, phthalates, propylene glycol and mineral oil. But what I really like about the new Crabtree & Evelyn collection is their artfully crafted packaging featuring unique watercolor designs – a modern take on botanical illustrations inspired by the vibrancy found in nature.
This is the first collection that captured my attention because I like rose fragrance and this Rosewater collection invokes the elegant essence of the hundred petal rose. It’s very light and lovely and features a blend of rose, violet, peony, fresh green foliage and musk accords.
I think ladies who love floral scent will love this collection because the fragrance comes across as fresh and spirited. Described as a sparkling light green floral fragrance, the collection features a perfect single accord of lily of the valley surrounded by dewy greens, velvety mosses, and notes of hyacinth and ylang ylang.
I don’t mind Iris too. It’s got a rather exotic edge and yes, very alluring is how I would describe the scent as the exquisite iris rhizome is at the heart of this fragrance, surrounded with violet and jasmine. Top notes of natural Italian bergamot and cassis are added to the base notes of sandalwood, patchouli, vetiver, cedarwood and musk.
The least exciting of the four has to be this collection. I suppose it’ll capture the hearts of those who are really fond of lavender because of the aromatic lavender bloom bouqueted with violet leaft, jasmine, exotic tonka bean, soft musk, and a touch of lemon leaf. Personally, I’ll skip this range because I’m not an avid fan of lavender in the first place.
