Crabtree & Evelyn is back with their signature holiday offerings for this festive season.
Distinctly Christmassy are the seasonal home fragrance collections comprising candles, reed diffusers, sprays and oils.
Nöel is a heady blend evoking the spices of Christmas baking (fresh balsam, cranberry, apple and citrus, spicy star anise, clove and nutmeg), while Winter Garden is an interpretation of holiday greens (frosted fresh-picked myrtle, magnolia leaves, amaryllis, apricots, green apples and candied citruses).
The brand has also launched a limited edition personal care collection for this year with 2 ranges: Golden Fig and Golden Petals (prices vary for individual products). Inspired by the setting sun on a glittering afternoon, each of the 2 ranges comprises a Silkening Body Nectar, a Bubble Bath & Body Wash, a Shimmering Body Mist and an Eau de Parfum Roller Ball.
Makeup lovers might like the limited edition Shimmer Lip Gloss (S$18). Dress your lips in Red Sparkle, Champagne or Pink Glace.
Besides these items, the bath and body sets are always a draw during this shopping period. Below are some of the lovely kits available this year:
My mother-in-law loved these pretty totes of the Daily Indulgences (S$88) collection as soon as she saw them. I couldn’t help but think they’d be great for storing personal spa/sauna treats.
These Hand Care Tins (S$55) are rather charming, their prints reminding me of travel stamps. :)
The vintage-looking Carry Cases ($88) continue the travel theme – they remind me of olde world suitcases.
To pamper yourself, indulge in a Ultimate Luxuries kit (S$128) that comes with four full-sized products and a sleek mirror compact.
Always popular are the Perfect Pairs (S$55/S$65), each made up of a full-sized bath & shower gel and a body lotion in the same scent.
If you prefer deluxed-sized products, these Great Escape (S$40) sets should please you.
And then there are the Sampler Sets (S$35 – S$70) – great as stocking-stuffers, these value-for-money selections always fly off the shelves, so do get them early.
While the brand’s bath and body care products are produced in the US, the nommables are made entirely in the UK.
Here are some photos of the Crabtree & Evelyn confections this season:
At the preview event, I particularly enjoyed the mint tea and gingerbread cookies.
I loved the jelly babies too. Yum! :)~
