As we approach the end of the year, many brands are launching their Christmas collections, and Crabtree & Evelyn has got us some very massive and exciting products this year, ranging from home fragrances to hand care and even fine festive food! There’s so much to choose from and what’s special about this year is that everything is made with magic! Teehee!
Let’s step into the magical world of Crabtree & Evelyn®’s Christmas 2015 collection, shall we?
From the Robin’s song that inspires their workers, to the snowman on the conveyor who turns snowflakes into icing for their cookies, every single product in Crabtree & Evelyn’s Christmas range has a magical story to tell! A huge thank you to the team for sending these festive gift tins to me! I’ll be touching on some of the many Christmas gifts I think will be great as gifts under the Christmas tree!
Welcoming you to the world of Christmas is the signature Noël® range of home fragrances. Noël® is a joyful blend of citrus and spicy notes that makes you feel festive in the holiday season. In a zesty and playful opening, notes of citron, orange and cranberry are combined with star anise, clove and nutmeg. While you’re busy catching those top notes, Fraser fir, spruce needles and cedarwood take precedence to recreate the forest’s woody fragrances.
- Noël® Home Fragrance Candle – Large S$50 | Three Wick S$75
- Noël® Home Fragrance Porcelain Diffuser – S$98
- Noël® Home Fragrance Spray – S$30
Off to Windsor Forest® we go, where a crisp and invigorating fragrance captivates. An evergreen medley of fir needle, spruce and pine notes entwined with fresh holly and juniper berries, Windsor Forest® brings you back to the still and tranquil winter forest. Relax and rejuvenate with nature with lingering base notes of birch wood, fir wood and cedarwood.
- Windsor Forest® Home Fragrance Candle – Large S$50 | Three Wick S$75
- Windsor Forest® Home Fragrance Porcelain Diffuser – S$98
- Windsor Forest® Home Fragrance Spray – S$30
Sugar & Spice… and everything nice? Let your inner whimsy out with inviting and comforting notes from the Sugar & Spice fragrance! This citrus and spicy scent tantalises the senses with delicious notes of sweet clementine, pink apple blossom infused with a champagne accord that brings sparkle and fizz into your life this Christmas! With nutmeg, cardamom and luxurious tones of vanilla, this celebratory scent is enticingly warm and embracing, great over a fireplace (if you have one).
- Sugar & Spice Home Fragrance Candle – Large S$50
Crabtree & Evelyn is probably no stranger to you when it comes to hand creams. The brand has built itself a reputation from having ultra moisturising hand creams with one of the widest range of scents available. Celebrate this festive season with some adorable ornament tins of hand creams shall we?
Hand Therapy Duo Ornament Tin
- Yellow (Pomegranate & Avocado) – S$23
- Pink (Pink Magnolia & Somerset Meadow®) – S$23
- Blue (La Source® & Gardeners) – S$23
Continuing with the hand creams gift sets, the Memory Makers Trio is sure to delight you and your loved ones in three different sets. Keep your hands nourished and loved with the ultra-moisturising hand creams in all sorts of scents, specially packed in Christmas-illustrated tins! In my opinion, these make for great gifts. No wrapping needed, just a huge red bow will do the trick!
Memory Makers Trio
- Limited Edition (Apple Snow, Frosted Rose, Sugar & Spice) – S$39
- Star (Verbena & Lavender, Pear & Pink Magnolia, Somerset Meadow®) – S$39
- Classic (La Source®, Rosewater, Gardeners) – S$39
As mentioned, the kind folks from Crabtree & Evelyn gifted me the Limited Edition set with 3 limited edition scents!
My favourite scent has got to be Sugar & Spice. With a fruity yet delicious scent, it makes me feel that I’m immersed in the Christmas spirit! Apple Snow has a luxurious perfumey scent while Frosted Rose smells just like roses in winter.
Not a fan of hand creams because of my sweaty palms, surprisingly, these were very fast-absorbing and didn’t leave my hands feeling oily.
Enlighten me if you can but I’ve always found it fascinating that a body care brand would produce excellent tea time snacks like cookies and tea! If you’re thinking of gifting a non-beauty junkie or the man in your life, you can, with some of the Festive Fine Food that Crabtree & Evelyn offer! Personally, I feel that these would be perfect for gifts:
- Mini Shortbread Biscuits Musical Tin – S$30
- Gingerbread Men Biscuits – S$28
- Specially at Breakfast (All Butter Honey and Oat Biscuits, Handmade Tarocco Orange Marmalade, English Breakfast Tea) – S$48
- Festive Double Treat (Dark Chocolate & Hazelnut Biscuits, Christmas Pudding Biscuits) – S$38 [personally tried them, they’re super awesome]
I think the highlight would be the musical tin. How often do you get cookies packed in a magical tin that produces music?! It’s amazing! You can listen briefly to the music on my Instagram video here
Inside the tin, there’re 2 packs of cookies, just enough for 2 sittings of tea time.
The shortbread biscuits are essentially butter cookies baked in Scotland with a traditional recipe. They have really rich and a delectable buttery taste and what I love about munching on them is the large sugar crystals inside that give you that additional crunchy texture!
Other than those mentioned above, there are really a huge selection of other body care and hand cream gift sets as well as celebratory festive hampers ranging from S$75-300 (as seen on my cover photo). There’s really something for everyone.
The Crabtree & Evelyn Made with Magic Christmas 2015 Collection launches in-stores from 16 November onwards.
Create yourself and be gorgeous! ♡
