Crabtree & Evelynis always sporting the best in smells . . . fir men and women. We got a hold of their new Verbena and Lavender de Provence Fragrance, a crisp, clean, fresh fragrance that's easy to wear as it has been created with French lemon verbena and lavender essential oils blended with notes of cedarwood, white amber and tonka bean to create the perfect uplifting scent. It provides a fresh twist to two well-loved ingredients. The overall effect of the aromatic combination is restorative. Being vibrant and fresh (verbena), herbaceous and soothing (lavender), the products can be enjoyed as both a refreshing, morning wake-up call and as an evening relaxing wind-down. The products blend together in an unexpected partnership that feels entirely our own. crabtree-evelyn.com
