Review - Crabtree and Evelyn Iris EDT

Disclosure - PR sample

This fragrance has been a really happy discovery. Since receiving my sample I've reached for it nearly every day, craving its fresh, friendly floral notes. It's definitely flowery, but not a sickly or overblown way. There's something fuzzy and low-key about the way it smells. It's not massively girly, but it is pretty. Kind of like a tomboy who scrubs up well.

The packaging is similarly straightforward and likeable - a tapered, chunky glass bottle with a solid plastic cap that pulls off with a smooth motion. A photo-real illustration of an iris is printed on the bottle.

I wasn't expecting something like this from Crabtree and Evelyn, a brand who, despite their beautiful La Source range, are strongly linked in my mind with nana-tastic talcum powder gift sets, old lady cabbage-roses and guest soaps in frilly wrapping. I think I've seriously misjudged them!

Iris costs just £12 for a 30ml EDT, or £24 for a better-value-but-more-expensive 100ml. Recommended!
