Crabtree & Evelyn Botanicals Hand Therapy Collection

Crabtree & Evelyn Botanicals Hand Therapy Collection

Incase you haven't guessed already, I have a bit of a thing for Crabtree & Evelyn. I love all of their scents anyway, but their Christmas collections are just something else. Last year I was lucky enough to receive the Blossoming Hands collection and this year Santa must have known that I was running low and brought me the Botanical collection.

Vintage floral and fruity smells are totally my thing, which is why I think I love Crabtree so much. Hand therapies are my favourite as they are the perfect size to pop in your handbag and switch around when you fancy a different smell. I can't decide whether I like this collection or last years 'fruity' collection more though, as they both contain some pretty amazing smells.

Crabtree & Evelyn Botanicals Hand Therapy Collection review

I have a few favourites in here that I will definitely repurchase, the only thing is that they last ages so you don't really need to think about replacing them too much. Not that that's a bad thing though, I love good value for money. Here's my rundown;

Old World Jasmine - I love this smell, it reminds me of my deodorant as I always tend to wear Jasmine (little random fact for you there!). It is not too sweet and not too overpowering, one of my favourites.

Rosewater - Rose is one of my favourite smells anyway. It is so old fashioned and powdery. I think it is one of those scents that you either love or hate though, I find it cute smelling. 

Lily - This is a very sweet smell with a slight tang to it. It starts off nice and flowery but has a bitter undertone to it. It fades to a slightly faint tangy smell.

Venetian Violet - This smells exactly like parma violets and I LOVE IT! It has a very soft smell and lasts ages. My hands smell like sweeties the whole time it is on.

Florentine Freesia - This is quite a citrusy smell, not very sweet at all. Once this starts to fade it has more of a flowery smell to it. 

Lavender - This is a typical lavender scent. I'm not a huge fan of lavender personally, so this is my least favourite. 

As usual with Crabtree, the quality is perfect and my hands feel so soft. I think it's safe to say my hands are going to smell and feel beautiful for the next few months. 


  1. These sound amazing! I love the old fashioned rose water scent but nothing modern I've found really captures it. I'm going to be looking these up.

    1. Thank you, me too. Rose is the best :)
