A beautiful fragrance that can be worn both day and evening ...An enigmatic blend of smoked black tea, warm ginger and spices, and golden champaca, touched with a mysterious accord of patchouli, leather notes, and exotic woods.

  1. This sounds nice, and the price is right…

  2. JoElla says:

    It does sound nice and worthy of a sniff.

  3. Aparatchick says:

    I love a good tea scent. And YAY for a 30 ml bottle!

  4. Emily says:

    I’m not up on what Crabtree and Evelyn has done lately, but this seems rather more ambitious than what I remember seeing in their stores (i.e., pleasant light florals — certainly no leather!).

  5. Anne from Makeupwoot says:

    Smoked black tea? Ginger? I’m in!

    After reading this I ran by the nearest place that sells Crabtree & Evelyn hoping they would have Himalayan Blue. No luck today but I do want to try it. C&E is not a line I’ve ever really given any thought to.. I just think of them as kind of prim, soft florals.. not my thing at all. I did try the Iris EDT, though, and I liked it. I’m not even a huge fan of iris, but it had a nice woodiness that worked nicely. I look forward to trying Himalayan Blue.

  7. Squirrely says:

    I agree with the general opinion of C&E being prim, perhaps a little anemic, but I also generally love the line. Simple soliflorals are just fine by me sometimes, familiar and easy. And oddly, I picked up a bottle of their Wisteria at TJ Maxx the other month for $12 and for some reason, my husband loves when I wear it (uh, no correlation to my earlier reference to “familiar and easy” I hope!)

    My local Crabtree & Evelyn has this! I was wearing OJ Woman this evening and spraying this on me was futile; however, on paper, it was nice — a soft blend of tea, flowers, spices and citrus. I did not get ginger, leather or patchouli but it could be the Woman interfering (I can’t believe I said that but there you go). An EDP of this would be even better.

    Anyway, in perfumistamath, we all know that anything that costs below $25 is basically free so I went home with the 30mL bottle. The bottle itself has a nice heft to it and is very cute. The surface has a creamish tint to it…not as bright white as in the picture above.
