Here is another great gift idea for all the special mums out there who are looking forward
to Mother’s Day on March 19th 2015.
Crabtree & Evelyn are renowned for their wonderful hand cream, as you may have read in my last review for the company at Christmas. This time, they sent me over some gorgeous perfume (alas, one being for men) but the Parisian Millefleurs Flower Water is perfect for mother’s of any age.
Parisian Millefleurs Flower Water £45.00
“An array of contrasting floral notes is brought together in this intricate scent, seemingly composed from a thousand flowers. In an exquisite fusion that’s both fresh and spicy, notes of narcissus, rose, tuberose and violet are balanced by a sparkling green accord of French juniper and cypress, then deepened with nuances of benzoin, French elemi and creamy woods.”
This perfume smells utterly divine. It is refreshing and not too heavy, perfect leading up to Spring. It comes in a gorgeous, vintage-looking bottle and an atomising pump, which adds to the whole beauty of it.
The male cologne would be great as a present for the man in your life or for any wonderful father that may get treats on Mother’s Day!
For Him: Black Absinthe Eau de Cologne £45.00
“The smooth scent of Black Absinthe Eau de Cologne is infused with rejuvenating herbaceous notes of absinthe, artemisia and fennel flower celebrating absinthe’s apothecary roots. Underneath these lively herbal notes, the smooth tones of black liquorice and peppery vetiver add a lasting sensuality.”
I gave this to my boyfriend to try and he likes it, however it is quite a heavy smell, but surprisingly, still refreshing. This is what Crabtree & Evelyn do so well, they manage to get the balance just right.
