Crabtree & Evelyn unveils its new fragrance Himalayan Blue, based on the fabled Himalayan Blue poppy…
Himalayan Blue fragrance was inspired by early British explorers, with the fragrance collection taking one into the heart of the Himalayas to trace the steps of a search for the exquisite mythical blue poppy.
In formulating this exotic new scent, Crabtree & Evelyn aims to capture the “essence of the Himalayas” with a fresh, citrusy top note of crisp mandarin, orange leaf, and a touch of lemon.
The heart of Himalayan Blue encompasses ginger, reflecting the warmth of the journey, and a combination of delicate rose absolute, Himalayan golden champaca blossoms, wildflowers, pink pepper and spices to suggest the mesmerizing backdrop of panoramic skies, misty mountains, and shimmering lakes.
Himalayan Blue carries a smoky base note of the smoked black tea Lapsang Souchong, sandalwood and patchouli which are reminiscent of the sultry seduction of the mountains, adding a leather accord to provide a subtle reminder of creaky saddles and antique bridles that belonged to these early explorers of the legendary Himalayas.
In addition, the body and hand therapy formulae use natural ingredients inspired by the Himalayas to include a combination of antioxidant-rich green tea oil, moisturizing shea butter and a conditioning blend of ginger and champaca extracts.
Himalayan Blue is geared towards the woman who values distinction and is characterized by an independent mind and lust for adventure. The woman who wears Himalayan Blue is confident and shrouded in an unmistakable allure…
By the same token the leathery and strong sandalwood notes might make the scent appeal to men as well!
Himalayan Blue’s pearlescent white bottle features a deep blue spherical cap, blue writing and a silvertone poppy charm with a blue center.
