Classic English grooming brand Crabtree & Evelyn is journeying to the Middle East for their exotic new quartet of evening garden fragrances
Take an olfactory odyssey into the Orient with Crabtree & Evelyn's four new eau de parfums, inspired by a night out in a lushly romantic spice garden.
Expect an exotic twist on Crabtree & Evelyn's classic English sensibility, with smoky woody notes, midnight florals and amber resins lending the scents an opulence that's perfect for completing your evening soiree ensemble.
Here's a brief walk-through of the four scents:
Ottoman Rose, $198 for 100ml
Turkish rose petals are the seductive stars of this scent, which pays homage to the time-honoured tradition of picking the petals of this prized bloom at the break of dawn. Other accords in this richly floral fragrance include tart blackberry, carnation and beautifully burnished leathery notes.
Kashmir Musk, $275 for 100ml
Crabtree & Evelyn says that Kashmir Musk takes its inspiration from the esoteric Arabic philosophy that musk takes on the characteristics of its surroundings. This scent simulates the varied aromas of the verdant valleys of the Middle East: See if you can tease out the intricate mesh of iris and other assorted warm spices.
Assam Oudh, $275 for 100ml
As any fragrance fan will know, oudh is a rich golden resin gleaned from the wood of the agar tree, and is among the most precious ingredients in a perfumer's repertoire. Crabtree & Evelyn celebrates the "liquid gold" of the perfuming world by pairing it with bergamot, blood orange and sweet crystallised lemon peel.
Persian Thé, $275 for 100ml
Persian Thé captures the wet, earthy smell of steeped black tea leaves in a seductive blend redolent with soul-warming cardamom, cinnamon and cedarwood.
