Crabtree & Evelyn has just launched the most beautiful fragrance collection.
Inspired by the Middle East, and using only the finest botanicals, the Night Garden is a collection of 4 opulent fragrances. They launched abroad last year, and they haven’t been able to keep up with demand.
Ottoman Rose reminds us of walled garden filled with notes of rich rose, blackberries and carnations. The top note has a leather accord that adds to the vintage feel of this scent.
Kashmir Musk transports us to the souks with notes of iris, spice and, of course, grey musk.
Assam Oudh, with its smoky citrus accord, is the best seller in the range. Hints of crystallised lemon, blood orange and bergamot combine with golden oudh to deliver a fresh, intense scent. (Oudh is from a resin that is found in the Agar tree).
Persian Thé (proununced ‘tea’) is my favourite. It celebrates tea’s initial journey to Persia via the Silk Road. The aroma of black tea is highlighted by hints of cardamom, cinnamon, Atlas cedarwood, amber and labdanum.
The Night Garden fragrances come in 100ml EDP for R2200 each. The range is available at Crabtree & Evelyn stores and online now.
