Pink perfection: Crabtree & Evelyn's Pear and Pink Magnolia collection
by Phoenix Leow

Crabtree & Evelyn's Pear and Pink Magnolia Collection has a fruity floral scent that will make every girly girl squeal. In its latest foray in the world of converting luscious fruits into fabulous scents, the hand cream legends have done it again.

Do not be fooled by the innocent pink magnolia that sits poignantly centerstage. In fusing passionfruit and bergamot notes with fruity red pear, Crabtree & Evelyn captures the pear's firmness - like a fruit fresh from picking - in its new scent. And it doesn't end there. The English company goes one step further by infusing distinctive lemon and playful pink magnolia into the mixture - resulting in a fruity floral blend that has our hearts and minds aflutter.

What is remarkable about this fragrance is its ability to bring out the floral accent most girls crave, but by layering it with hints of jasmine and cedarwood, you are left with a refreshing and distinctive fragrance.

If the elegant and gentle scent wasn't enough, we certainly couldn't get our eyes off the subtle pink packaging. Holding to the brand's image of using intricate motifs surrounded by simple colours, the elaborate pink magnolia flower takes center stage. Who knew an unfolding flower could be so alluring?

The Pear and Magnolia bath and body collection has six different products. On the top of our list is the vegetable-based Triple Milled Soap. Vegetable-based soaps work very well for sensitive skin as the lack of animal by-products means a lot less allergens are involved.

Another worthy mention is the amazing Body Soufflé. Whipped to airlight perfection and packed with two moisturising ingredients ‒ glycerine and shea butter ‒ the scoop of marshmallow-like goodness absorbs into the skin in no time. Alternatively, if time is not on your hands, pick Crabtree & Evelyn's signature Ultra-Moisturising Hand Therapy. Loaded with the brand's signature intensive cream, the hand cream also contains macadamia nut oil and myrrh, guaranteed to soften any cuticle.

The Crabtree & Evelyn Pear and Pink Magnolia collection also includes an Eau de Toilette, Body Lotion, and Body Cream. Whichever one you pick, the end result is a lingering sweet smell so delicate that the boy next door will surely come round knocking.

The Crabtree & Evelyn Pear and Pink Magnolia Collection is available from March 2014 at all Crabtree & Evelyn Stores. For more information, visit and follow the brand on Facebook.
