Crabtree & Evelyn Somerset Meadow Collection


“Joining the well-loved ranges of Nantucket Briar and Summer Hill in their celebration of sumptuous flowers and idyllic settings, this charming trio of scents – each infused into its own array of bath and body treasures – offers everyday luxurious treats. 

The light green fruity-floral scent of Somerset Meadow is an aromatic impression of a beautiful English landscape in bloom. Blending a spirit of ‘joie de vivre’ and nature at its most simple and spectacular, Somerset Meadow is a delight to wear on the skin. The scent of sparkling bergamot and dew-kissed blackberry buds is refreshing and tart, its juicy sweetness perfectly balanced with the bitter greens of ivy and fern. A heart of white blossoms, water lily and earthy geranium flourishes as if warmed by the morning sun. The scent of left, grass and fragrance petals are suffused by creamy clouds of musk, whilst willow and moss tether all the casually floating notes close to the skin and bring a soft, sensuous touch.”

I honestly don't know anyone who doesn't like Crabtree & Evelyn products: even though I don't personally go all out to buy body/fragrance products, I'm always happy to receive Crabtree and Evelyn products from my awesome girlfriends (If you're a lady, I'm sure you've received a Crabtree and Evelyn Hand Therapy cream at least once, no?) because all of them are all so nice smelling! ;)

I was invited down to the launch of the Somerset Meadow collection, at Crabtree & Evelyn's Vivocity store, together with some other fellow blogger girlfriends, where we got to try all the different products, as well as indulge in Crabtree & Evelyn's famous biscuits and camwhore to our hearts' content with a beautifully-designed backdrop!

Flower power! All those plants and greens on the backdrop.. they're real! D:

Love it when I get keepsakes from events like these Fuji Instax photos, they were even slotted in a special card too :D

A group photo with my girls: Valerie, Felicia, Juli, Pegs and Evonne! :D Looking extra chio and fairy-like because of the green floral backdrop and flower head pieces hahaha. Always love attending events with this bunch, they never fail to liven things up! 

Outfit of the day.. I insisted on having flowers in my backdrop and I think I kind of ended up blending into the background HAHA. Oh well. Thanks Evonne for being the OTD photographer always! 

I paired a plain cream top with an abstract printed flare skirt from Miss Selfridge! Can't go wrong with a plain top and printed flare skirt :D Oh and those pretty heels are from Zara, but are terribly painful to walk in :( *relegates to the photoshoot pile*

We got to bring home the Somerset Meadow Bath & Shower Gel and Scented Body Lotion set from the event!
Beautiful box and packaging that would make a wonderful gift for a loved one. I love the little details, lioe the embossed cover, and the interior floral print! Psst. Mother's Day is coming up real soon!

I really like the fresh, green fruity-floral scent: It's just the right balance for me, neither too heavy nor too sweet! I'm not too good at describing the scent, but it is very very delightful and luxurious. I love it :)

My favourite product has got to be the scented body lotion! It is lightly fragranced and feels smooth and rich, but yet absorbs easily into the skin! No sticky or tacky feeling after application, and it leaves the skin feeling a little more supple and moisturised, with a pleasant lingering scent.

If you're like me and dont wear perfume on a daily basis but still want to smell yummy, you'd love the combination of the shower gel and scented lotion! 

The Somerset Meadow Bath & Body Collection consists of a Perfume Gel (12ml, $25), Eau De Toilette (60ml, $58), Bath & Shower Gel (200ml, $35), Scented Body Lotion (200ml, $40) and Hand Therapy (100g, $33).
