Crabtree & Evelyn Caribbean Island Water Lily Home Fragrance

Scenting my home now is this new Crabtree & Evelyn Caribbean Island Water Lily Home Fragrance Reed Diffuser (S$115), launching in February in Singapore.

Designed to evoke the restorative calm of a Caribbean island getaway, it comes beautifully packaged in a sleek glass bottle filled with seashells sourced from the Philippines, encased in a solidly constructed wooden box with a vintage style clasp. The box will probably be re-purposed to store my accessories, although the baby seems to want to fill it with his toys instead.

The airy green floral scent is refreshing without descending into generic forgettable blandness. It is composed of top notes of lemon, peppermint and sea air accord with a sweet feminine heart of casuarina, orange blossom and jasmine, rounded off with warm base notes of cedarwood, sandalwood and marine accord. The scent throw reaches two to three metres, sufficient for most small and mid-sized rooms.

Press sample sent for consideration.
