A Magical Winter Garden with Crabtree & Evelyn

Labels: , , , , , , , , , , , , , ,

Christmas is coming and Crabtree & Evelyn this year will be launching their Magical Winter Garden collection to welcome this festive time...

I was the first to arrive at the Crabtree & Evelyn event that day. So technically, I was first in Singapore to preview the Christmas collection! Yipee!!!
Inspired by the wonder of nature, with a colour palette drawn from the majesty of magical winter garden, Crabtree & Evelyn's 2012 festive gift collection takes you through a spectrum of vibrant colours, seasonal scents and exceptional flavours.

From the shift in light from golden to dusk as autumn slips into winter, to the occasional burst of colour amongst a sea of evergreens and to the instantly recognizable scent of Christmas fruits and spices, Crabtree & Evelyn's festive collection offers a magical feast for the senses.

The moment I step into the store, I was welcomed by the fragrance of the green packaged - Winter Garden candles. From the Home Fragrance section comes 2 festive fragrance. One is the recognized across the globe as Crabtree & Evelyn's signature Christmas fragrance, Noël and the all new Winter Garden.

Noël is a heady blend of fresh balsams, cranberry, apple and citrus complemented by spicy star anise, clove and nutmeg, instantly evoking the spirit and smells of holiday festivity throguhout the home.

The new collection - Winter Garden is an original interpretation of traditional 'holiday greens' featuring a gentle blend of frosted fresh-picked myrtle, magnolia leaves and fleshy green stems of amaryllis complemented by fruits including apricots, green apples and candied citruses. It reminds me the Christmas tree and kissing under the mistletoe... *blush*

Another part of my favourite from the Christmas collection are the Personal Care products. Inspired by the setting sun on a glittering winter afternoon, Crabtree & Evelyn has drawn on its rich botanical apothecary and heritage to introduce 2 new limited edition collections - Golden Fig and Golden Petals. They are formulated to pamper and indulge your skin, leaving a glittering scent when applied.

I'm more of a fan of the Golden Petals. It's more flowery... I think the Shimmering Body Mist is a must get, not only does it leave a fragrance, your body will have have a glittering shine. SO EDWARD CULLEN!!! @.@|||

Another must-get is the Shimmer Lip Gloss. Coming in 3 shades - Champagne Frost, Pink Glace and Red Sparkle. I got the Pink Glace for myself as it gives me usual nude shade lipstick a little gradient and plump my lips up. Each lip gloss has a Christmas-y fragrance like nutmeg etc...

Next comes the yearly highly anticipated gift sets. Crabtree & Evelyn has long been acknowledged as a leader in offering gifts for all ages and price points to delight and surprise any recipient.

With choices ranging from attractive vanity cases perfect for any bedroom, to handy-sized sampler and spa kits, the 2012 Christmas gift collection is guaranteed to evoke happy memories long after the festive season has ended.

The packaging for the gift sets are all so pretty and after using the products, you can use them to store your things or use a bag itself!

One of the highlight would be the Ultimate Luxuries set and the highlighted on would be the all new Evelyn Rose Ultimate Luxuries. It is the evolved interpretation of Crabtree & Evelyn's signature scent of English Rose - Evelyn Rose. This is the perfect gift for the lady who is both feminine and graceful with an understated elegance, providing a subtle hint to her sensuous nature.

Pricing at SGD $168, the set comes with Evelyn Rose Shower Gel (250ml), Evelyn Rose Body Lotion (250ml), Evelyn Rose Hand Therapy (100g), Evelyn Rose Eau de Parfum (50ml) and a compact mirror in gold. The set is housed in a beautiful gold vanity case with a mirror for you makeup as well!

The other thing that runs out fast, would be the Hand Therapy Sampler (Set of 12). Every year, this is one of my must buy. You could buy for yourself or a gift or simply share them amongst your girlfriends!

The available fragrances for the award winning hand creams are Rosewater, Lavender, Iris, Lily, Evelyn Rose, Wisteria, Himalayan Blue, La Source, India Hicks Island Living, Nantucket Briar, Summer Hill, Gardeners, Argan & Grapeseed, Avocado/Olive & Basil and Citron/Honey & Coriander.

Last but not least, is the Fine Food. Not only can you look good, you can feel good inside too!
