Folly and Jilt are new from Crabtree & Evelyn, "modern classic fragrances inspired by the great vintage perfumes of the 20’s and 30’s". Folly is...
'La Boheme in a bottle'. Fresh, daring, romantic. Lively top notes of leafy green, iris, apricot and peach, open to a fresh floral heart of cyclamen, muguet, jasmine, rose and lilac, warmed with an aristocratic accord of leather, cistus and vetiver.
Perfect with 'jungle red' nails and dry martinis at the Ritz. Mysterious, seductive. Tempting high notes of mandarin and bergamot entwine with a sensuous heart of ylang ylang, orange blossom, rose and jasmine, finishing with a smouldering trail of amber, incense and sandalwood. P>
Folly & Jilt are $45 for 50 ml of Eau de Parfum, and are both available now.
Next month, Crabtree & Evelyn will launch the India Hicks Island Living Collection, including a new fragrance, Spider Lily:
Named for India's favorite island flower, a fragile white flower that grows by the edge of the sea, this fragrance captures the romantic spirit of the West Indies - blending the delicate perfume of the the spider lily with tropical citruses, orange blossom, night blooming jasmine, palm leaves and a touch of sea spray.
Spider Lily will be available in 100 ml Eau de Toilette ($50), and in Bath Salt, Shower Gel, Hand Wash, Body Polish, Soap and Body Cream. A home fragrance, Casuarina, will be launched at the same time. Look for them at Crabtree & Evelyn stores and at Neiman Marcus, Bergdorf Goodman, Anthropologie and Holt Renfrew.
