I can no longer find this set to buy, but all scents are still available from Crabtree & Evelyn.

I absolutely love Crabtree & Evelyn hand creams and after last year's set went down such a treat (post here), Santa repayed the favour and got me a different selection this Christmas. Yippee!

As usual with Crabtree & Evelyn, the packaging with this is lovely. So vibrant and perfect for the festive season, I'm still holding on as long as I can as I can't quite believe Christmas is over. This set consists of 6 different 25g scented tubes, each with a floral or fruity scent...

Pomegranate, Argan + Grapeseed
This scent reminds me of something, but I really can't put my finger on what it is! Don't you just hate it when that happens, I have been round to everyone in my house hoping that they would psychically know what I was talking about, but they were no help. This scent has a nice berry tone with a slight spicy undertone so is perfect for winter and lasts ages too.

Tarocco Orange, Eucalyptus + Sage
This really smells good enough to eat. The orange isn't too punchy, its very soft and reminds me of Terry's Chocolate Orange quite a lot. It doesn't have much of a zing to it, but I really like that aspect, I think the Eucalyptus and Sage tone it down quite a lot and make it more subtle.

Citron, Honey + Coriander
This is a zingy as you would expect from being a citrus scent. The citrus really shines through at first and you get a scent of lemon sherbert. After a few seconds, the honey really starts to kick in and you are left with a lovely honey and lemon aroma. It's like having a cold and drinking honey and lemon to feel better, but without the cold.

Verbena + Lavender
This has a pretty typical lavender scent to it and reminds me of the lavender soaps and lotions that you can buy. This is my least favourite of the set, but only because lavender doesn't really float my boat too much. I'm sure this will be a treat to any Lavender fans though!

Pear + Pink Magnolia
I never knew these two scents could work so well together. This is by far my favourite of the bunch. The balance between fruity and floral is lovely and as soon as I close my eyes the smell makes me think of Spring. It reminds me of old fashioned talcum powder that my nan used to use as it has that vintage fruity smell to it.

English Honey + Peach Blossom
I do love the smell of peach and this is another scent that is good enough to eat. The honey doesn't kick in straightaway, but once it does the aroma makes me think of being somewhere in Spain with vineyards and fruit surrounding. (I can dream eh!)

I find sets like this really handy if you are like me for getting bored of the same smell, you can just swap them around when you start to get fed up. In terms of moisturising, my hands feel extremely soft and smell good too! ♥
