Got this lovely storybook as a gift a long long time ago. tongue Himalayan Blue by Crabtree & Evelyn is said to have an exotic and mysterious scent that captures the mesmerizing beauty and breathtaking splendor of the Himalayas.
“Where the mountains are kissed by a panoramic sky, shimmering lakes give rise to an ethereal mist and the rare blue poppy is a treasured sight. Many have been lured by the beauty of the Himalayas. We capture its essence in Himalayan Blue, a fragrant blend of smoked black tea, warm ginger and spices, champaca, and a mysterious accord of patchouli and exotic woods.” – Crabtree & Evelyn
The Himalayan Blue Storybook comes in a pretty shade of dark blue box and contains the following items:
- Himalayan Blue Bath & Shower Gel (S$35)
- Himalayan Blue Body Lotion (S$40)
- Himalayan Blue Eau de Toilette (S$28 for 30ml, S$65 for 100ml)
- Himalayan Blue Hand Therapy (S$33)
The scent begins with a touch of lemon and orange, a good perk me up scent for mornings. It continues to develop into a combination of tea, ginger, roses and spices. The ending note contains sandalwood and wildflowers, too strong for my liking and gave me quite a headache. I guess the exotic scent appeals more to men. This? Nah, not for me. Gimme my floral-fruity scents please. I guess I’ll just stick to that. blush
