Woodstock, CT | 12/1/2012

Introducing the 2012 Christmas Collection from Crabtree & Evelyn

Inspired by the wonder of nature, with a colour palette drawn from the majesty of a magical winter garden, Crabtree & Evelyn's 2012 festive Christmas collections take you through a spectrum of vibrant colours, seasonal scents, and exceptional flavours. From the shift in light from golden to dusk as autumn slips into winter, to the occasional burst of colour amongst a sea of evergreens and to the instantly recognisable scent of Christmas fruits and spices, Crabtree & Evelyn's festive collections offer a magical feast for the senses.

Featuring festive home fragrances and limited edition seasonal personal care, a gift from Crabtree & Evelyn bears the hallmark of true indulgence.

Home Fragrance

Drawing the fresh crispness of a winter morning into the warmth of the family home, Crabtree & Evelyn's seasonal home fragrance range is as much a part of Christmas as carols and mince pies, delighting families and friends for generations – a true celebration of scent and sight.

Recognised across the globe as Crabtree & Evelyn's signature Christmas fragrance, Noël® is a heady blend of fresh balsams, cranberry, apple, and citrus complemented by spicy star anise, clove, and nutmeg, instantly evoking the spirit and smells of holiday festivity throughout the home.

New for the home in Christmas 2012 is Winter Garden™, an original interpretation of traditional 'holiday greens' featuring a gentle blend of frosted fresh-picked myrtle, magnolia leaves, and the fleshy green stems of amaryllis complemented by fruits including apricots, green apples, and candied citruses.

Fragranced Candles ($33.00)

To find the inspiration behind the deep rich hues of these candles, simply cast your eye over a burst of red berries nestled within the deepest green holly bush. Available in both Noël and Winter Garden fragrances, these classic poured candles add the perfect touch of festive elegance to any Christmas table.

Three Fragranced Candles ($35.00)

Encased in the same magical colours as the larger candles, these three smaller candles are ideal to scatter around your home at Christmas.

Home Fragrance Reed Diffusers ($40.00)

Available in both Noël and Winter Garden fragrances, these charming diffusers are a beautiful festive ornament. Presented in the richest berry and deepest evergreen shades, they gently disperse fragrance in your home for up to three months.

Personal Care

Inspired by the setting sun on a glittering winter afternoon, Crabtree & Evelyn has drawn on its rich botanical apothecary and heritage to introduce two new limited edition personal care collections, formulated to pamper and indulge your skin, especially for Christmas 2012.

Golden Fig™ is a beautiful modern composition invoking both freshness and sophistication. This collection blends fresh figs, grapefruit, apple, and mangosteen with cedar, white sandalwood, and golden amber accords tied together with a medley of musks.

Golden Petals™ is an enchanting and charming fragrance featuring a unique greengage plum note blended with the sweet tartness of berries and rhubarb leaf drenched in sugar crystals, fresh sheer florals, and a medley of musks.

Bubble Bath & Body Wash ($20.00)

Available in Golden Fig and Golden Petals fragrances, these Bubble Bath & Body Washes are the perfect morning shower luxury or night-time addition to a warm bath, and are gently scented and richly foaming to nourish and soothe your skin.

Silkening Body Nectar ($20.00)

This rich and conditioning moisturising lotion smoothes on easily, absorbs quickly, and leaves skin silky soft with just a hint of glitter and delicate scent -- perfect for the festive party season or for those occasions when you're looking for an added sparkle. Available in Golden Fig and Golden Petals fragrances.

Shimmer Lip Gloss ($14.00)

Shimmering lip glosses with a moisture-rich formula to leave lips beautifully soft and glistening with colour. An ideal stocking gift that's available in three colours - Champagne Frost, Red Sparkle, and Pink Glace.
