Known for their pioneering botanical formulations since 1972, Crabtree & Evelyn has long embraced the riches of the natural world with beauty products made from fruit, flower and plant essences that smell as gorgeous as they feel. (We're totally obsessed with their new triple-milled Avocado & Olive Oil "Heritage" Soap which leaves hands soft & moisturized, no matter how obsessively you wash 'em.)
The line was originally inspired by 17th Century English naturalist & conservationist John Evelyn, who traveled throughout Europe and lived by the motto: "Explore everything. Keep the best." Like this gorgeous new collection of four single-note scents - Lily, Lavender, Rosewater & Iris - all glamorously packaged and completely delicious. They really so smell like a garden in full bloom: Lily brings to mind spirit and creativity, while lavender is uplifting & refreshing; spritz on Iris for a more adventurous feel, and if you're feeling girlie, few scents can compete with graceful Rosewater for sheer femininity. The matching Bath & Shower gels, Body Creams & Body Lotions are free of nasties like parabens, phthalates, propylene glycol or mineral, relying instead on a custom-blend of English flower extracts, including peony, elderflower & magnolia, to leave skin soft, supple and oh-so-glamorously scented.
