We love the sudden assault on our senses the moment we step foot amongst the bottles, tubes and bars of goodness in any beauty store.
Crabtree & Evelyn is a store we can rely on for this sensory experience every time. So when we spotted their 50% off Storewide Sale, we weren’t passing by without a little peek. But even with the temptation of the sale and lingering scents from all their beautiful products, we were able to stand our ground and only walked away with a single purchase! It is set of eau de toilettes from Crabtree & Evelyn’s Floral Collection.
The gorgeous set of four 15ml single-note floral fragrances would make the perfect gift and great samplers that you can try before comitting to a full sized bottle. Suckers for exquisite packaging, we love the glass-etched designs which make a great addition to our dresser. Light fruity and floral scents are among our favourites, so naturally these have become some of our most worn scents! Iris however, is a little strong for our liking and definitely a more mature scent (so it has found it’s new home on our mum’s dressing table!!)
Any regular reader of our blog will know that we preach a frugal philosophy, so we are thrilled that we snagged this not for it’s original price of $49, but for $24.50! (that’s less than $6.15 per bottle). To be fair, the original price is pretty decent for a set of four beautiful fragrances from a brand of this calibre.
Crabtree & Evelyn has a number of stores in Australia and worldwide, and also sell their products online so don’t fret, you still have time to pick this set up on sale.
The glass etched designs make for gorgeous bottles that take pride of place on our dresser.
They are eau de toilettes so we weren’t expecting their smell to linger or last quite as long as our perfumes, but these are perfect if you want a light body spray.
The four scents are very different, but all lovely in their own way!
Overall Grade: A
We would definitely recommend this collection! The packaging and scents themselves would make the perfect gift for any lover of sweet, floral fragrances.
