Idyllic Romance with Crabtree & Evelyn

February 7, 2016

Where has the weekend gone?!  I have a mile-long task list this weekend, and the house is still in an unspeakable state [I swear each time I pack, everything just miraculously gets messy right away!].  It is Chinese New Year Eve today, and it’s going to be mayhem as my sis is coming home with her son for the holidays.  Nonetheless, I am determined to have some quality me-time before the busy next couple of days.  And there is no better way to take a breather than with these gorgeously scented rose treats from Crabtree & Evelyn!

For this Valentines’ Day 2016, Crabtree & Evelyn has prepared a very special limited edition All Butter Rose Biscuit [SGD18 for 150gm].  Imagine the traditional butter shortbread biscuits scented with delicate rose petals… utterly delicious!!  I ate half the packet in 1 seating, it is that good!  Definitely going to stock up on these!

I don’t normally have a sweet tooth, so I need something to accompany those biscuits.  And Crabtree & Evelyn’s Afternoon Tea [SGD18 for 25 ratchets] is simply perfect.  A light yet fragrant blend of Kenyan and Ceylon tea leaves, it is thirst-quenching and brings out the flavour of the rose in the biscuits!

Gentlemen, if you are looking for some nice gifts for your ladies, you need to check out Crabtree & Evelyn’s premium Evelyn Rose range.  Likewise, those of you who love a good rose scent, you need to pick this up!  I’ve tried the older Evelyn Rose range before, but this I believe has been recently reformulated because the Body Wash [SGD53 for 250ml] smells so good I might have been much more generous in the shower than I needed!  The scent is delicate, a fresh rose bouquet that does not turn powdery nor overly sweet.  With a slight crispness that makes the shower experience so refreshing!

And of course, for hand cream lovers, the Evelyn Rose Hand Therapy [SGD33 for 100gm] is a must have.  Lightweight, non-greasy on the hands, and wonderfully scented, these hand creams are wildly popular.
