Fun new scents based on a Crabtree & Evelyn favorites...

So I was playing around on the Crabtree and Evelyn website to find out what is contained in some of their great fragrances and low and behold I found a perfume that has a simple recipe. It only contains 4 ingredients. I'm not positive what it smells like but my concoction is WONDERFUL!

Eau de ToiletteWarm and exotic blend of sensuous gardenia, Moroccan rose, amber and precious sandalwood. Luxurious decorative glass flacon with spray mist applicator.

Shawna's Version: 1 Amber, 1 Rose, 2 Gardenia, 2 Sandalwood - Soft, feminine, and delicious!

Eau De ParfumOur eau de parfum fragrance captures the scent of delicate wisteria blossoms, fresh lilac and notes of sweet violet.

Shawna's Version: Try one of each note and adjust to your taste!

Eau De ParfumOur fresh and innocent fragrance of freesia blossoms and sweet jasmine captures a glamour that is simple at heart.

Lily of the Valley
Eau de Parfum TravellerThis chic perfume traveller holds our perfume of lily of the valley, pure white roses, night-blooming jasmine and a hint of cashmere musk.

Shawna's Version: Use Lily, Rose, Jasmine, and White Musk. You'll probably need 2 Musk and 2 Lily to the others.

Spring Rain
Bath & Shower GelEnriched with extracts of nourishing linden flower, mallow and honey, our bath and shower gel leaves skin smooth and soft. Fragranced with a scent of crisp grasses and delicate rosebuds.Spring Rain
Bath & Shower GelFeatured Ingredients:Honey, Jojoba Oil, Linden Extract, Mallow Extract, Vitamin E

Lauri Hetzer has a creation that she says smell exactly like this. I'll have to get her recipe but you can start with Linden Blossom and Rose.

For the grand finale their baby scents look fun and easy to re-create:

Nursery Tails™
Pudy Cat Comfort CreamPudy is the kind of good friend who can cheer you up, when you're feeling blue. Pudy's comforting cream soothes tenderness and helps protect against nappy rash irritation. Delicately scented with a baby-fresh blend of soothing lavender, rosebud and geranium.

Shawna's Suggestion: Maybe a touch of heliotrope to that trio to make it powdery!

Happy Mixing!
