Crabtree & Evelyn was founded in 1972 by Cyrus Harvey. The name Crabtree & Evelyn was inspired by John Evelyn, a 17th century botanist, and the English Crabapple tree, known for its beauty and use in home apothecary. Initially a small, family run business, the first store specialised in fine soaps sourced from around the world. This one man’s passion for travel coupled with an inherent desire for natural products, set the foundation for creating an international brand renowned the world over for its fragrances, body care products, fine foods and beautifully packaged gifts. Cyrus began collecting soaps and lotions made by small manufacturers from all over the world. Customers were delighted and interested in the new products and this one small shop turned into a retail presence in more than 65 countries. Today the Crabtree & Evelyn product range comprises fragrances, bath and shower gels, soaps, home spa products, body lotions, hand creams and home fragrance.
Crabtree & Evelyn offers a few fragrances that are perfect for the holidays. How about Festive Fig, Windsor Forest or Noel (my choice)? The Noel Porcelain Diffuser pictured above features a frosted-glass bottle with distinctive gold collar that stays continuously fragrant for up to 90 days. Unlike reed diffusers I have had in the past the ornamental porcelain bird diffuses fragrance and makes a stunning decoration. The Noel fragrance has notes of festive fruits, zesty citrus, mulling spices, and the green Fraser fir.
The Noel Botanical Candle has the same fragrance with colourful botanical ingredients embedded within the base of the candle and looks great on the table with my Christmas decor. This candle is a paraffin wax blend that burns up to 50 aromatic hours. The Holiday Fragrance Collection from Crabtree & Evelyn London would make a great gift idea for anyone on your list, from teachers to babysitters and would be an awesome party hostess gift.
