Crabtree & Evelyn Pear and Pink Magnolia
One new release that I’m really enjoying right now is Crabtree & Evelyn’s oh-so-pretty new Pear and Pink Magnolia.
(Even the name sounds pretty.)
This fruity-floral opens tart and juicy-sweet, then becomes more delicate, fresh and floral as it blooms on the skin.
- Top notes: Pear, Bergamot and Passionfruit
- Heart notes: Pink Magnolia, Osmanthus, Jasmine
- Base Notes: Cedarwood, Amber, Orris
Prices start at S$13 for the scented 25g Ultra-Moisturizing Hand Therapy and Triple Milled Soap, and goes up to $75 for the 100ml Eau de Toilette. The purse-friendly 30ml bottle (pictured above) is $38. If you like fresh fruity-florals like Marc Jacobs Honey, you just might enjoy this one too.
The only con - coincidentally enough since I mentioned Honey - is the lasting power. It also opens in a nice big burst, but doesn’t stay on very long. I have to sniff my arm to find it after about 2 hours. Then again, considering the much lower price tag compared to Marc Jacobs Honey (and much more bag-friendly bottle shape) just bring it out with you and reapply!
*Other products in the line include a body wash, body lotion, and body soufflé.
