Crabtree & Evelyn: Perfumes of the Night Garden

I'm always a bit 'safe' with my perfumes, tending to go with a classic or a popular fragrance, for example, my current fav is Chanel Coco Mademoiselle - which my lovely in laws bought me a bottle for my birthday. However, last week I was invited to Harrods where Crabtree & Evelyn have recently exclusively launch their new Perfumes of the Night Garden and I was really surprised with the scents I liked the most.

Fragrance consultant Fran Brown talked me through each of the four perfumes in the collection which are inspired by the garden; beautiful botanical fragrances, at night time; where the darkness heightens our other senses. The Middle East also has a large influence on the perfumes, with smoky woods, regal flowers and rich resins featuring.
For each of the perfumes Fran gave me different notes to smell, then gave me the complete perfume to see if I could pick the individual fragrances and educated me as to how a perfume is put together, it was completely fascinating. I really liked all of the perfumes, however Kashmir Mush with its blend of grey musk, exotic spices and English Iris was a joint favorite with Persian Thé, containing the gorgeous base note of Atlas cedarwood and amber with black tea.
 These exotic, deep fragrances are such a far cry from the light, fresh scents I usually opt for, it was such an eye opener into perfumes I don't think I would ever have tried.

The perfumes are exclusivly avaible at Harrods Beauty Apothecary and Crabtree & Eveyln flagship stores and website. Priced at £140/100ml they may have to remain on my wish list for the moment...
