New from Crabtree & Evelyn: Black Absinthe Perfume

Crabtree & Evelyn is a new brand for me, now don't get me wrong I know all about the brand and it's long standing beauty botanical heritage

But to be honest whenever I've thought about them, my thoughts always leaned towards the idea of scents from a vintage English garden, which is not my general scent of choice

That is until I was recently introduced to the brand at a recent press launch, and was blown away by how beautiful, modern and complex a lot of their scents are.

Case in point, their newly launched Black Absinthe Eau de Cologne, described as:

"Absinthe began as a herbal tincture before transforming into the muse of the French bohemian crowd in what became known as the green hour. It was drunk as a way to relax and thought by some to increase creativity. Paying homage to absinthes rich history, this contemporary cologne underscores the herbaceous notes of absinthe, artemisia and fennel flower and blends it with the smooth tones of black liquorice, peppery vetiver and a creamy tonka base for lasting sensuality."

Don't be deceived by the bottles masculine appearance. Although it was originally designed as a cologne for men, both Mr LPM and I have both tried it and think it's actually a great unisex fragrance as the notes are both deep and light at the same time.

If you are a fan of deep perfume scents but are usually put off because they can be overbearing, then this fragrance could be perfect for you. On initial spray, it can seem quite strong but I found that it mellows throughout the day and within a few hours settles into a very soft, sweet and sensual fragrance, that could only really be picked up by someone sitting close to you.

It retails for £45.00 for 100ml but is priced at a special introductory offer of £31.50 until Mothering Sunday.
