A pioneer in botanical formulations for 40 years, Crabtree & Evelyn blends the very best of nature and science, tradition and innovation to create benefit-rich bath, body and home fragrance products.
Long before the natural and wellness movement became popular, Crabtree & Evelyn was wholeheartedly embracing the riches of the natural world, introducing product ranges made with fruit, flower and plant essences.
I popped in to Crabtree & Evelyn to see what new scents they had and found Tarocco Orange. I am not a huge fan of smelling like oranges, so I kind of thought I wasn’t going to like the scent. But I was pleasantly surprised at how lovely the lotion smelled! They will even give you a free sample, so next time you are there you should pop in to at least grab a sample for yourself! It was such a refreshing and beautiful scent that I found myself smelling my hand again and again!
Known for its deep red hue that results from a high concentration of flavonoid antioxidants, the Tarocco orange is packed with more vitamin C than any other citrus fruit. But the juicy benefits don’t stop there. Deep cleansing eucalyptus and purifying sage extracts help balance and detoxify the skin, and a citrus and green herbal scent energises and refreshes. The synergistic result is antioxidant-rich body and hand care that revitalises the skin and invigorates the senses.
They have so many wonderful soaps to choose from!
Their soaps are their heritage. A soap company since their beginning, they’ve been crafting beautifully scented, gently cleansing bars since 1968. Today, the tradition lives on with the same time-honoured techniques.
Their skin-softening glycerine soaps are handcrafted in Switzerland and scented with the finest fragrances. Meanwhile, their creamy, triple-milled soaps hail from Vermont, where an artisanal process ensures lasting fragrance and luxurious lather. Good things do come in small packages.

Abundant and aromatic, the wild briar rose adorns weathered cottage doorways and fog-filled harbours on Nantucket. But the “Grey Lady” (so-named for her oft misty shores) has an exotic side, too. For centuries, ships from around the world landed on her shores with rare spices and oils.
Our Nantucket Briar Collection is an eclectic mix of on-island ingredients and imports from afar. Scents of peony, wild rose and ambergris get a refreshing boost from the citrusy fragrance of bergamot. Meanwhile, notes of vanilla, patchouli and exotic spices add a proper dose of the unexpected.
Beneath the craggy cliffs of coastal England, Scotland and Wales lies a wealth of botanical treasures. These underwater algae, mineral salts and seaweeds offer remarkable benefits for the skin. They’ve harnessed their restorative powers and paired them with an array of pampering accessories. So whenever you need to escape the stresses of daily life, you can create your own spa-like experience at home. It’s the ultimate ‘me time’.

In Tuscany, the old world still holds sway. Its medieval towns like Sienna are the very image of days gone by. Here, the scents of spices, herbs and crisp citrus waft from gardens and groves through open kitchen windows. Meanwhile, the saddles and bridles on the horses of Sienna’s famed Pailo horse race, give off a musky aroma of leather. Their Sienna collection is inspired by these essences of a more romantic time and has been assembled for your daily pleasure.
