John Keats once wrote, “A thing of beauty is a joy forever” and that saying is true of Crabtree & Evelyn’s new Himalayan Blue collection. The packaging alone is something of a marvel and the prints and colors are reminiscent of the works of Joan Miró or Kandinsky in their playfulness.

There is something mystical and enigmatic about the entire thing too: what, after all is Himalayan Blue?

While I admire women, such as my mom, who pick one fragrance and make it their signature, I just love too many perfumes to stick to one.

In my childhood years, I loved any perfume as long as it was sparkly and pink and fruity and sweet. However, as I’ve gotten older, let’s just say my tastes have refined a bit and the idea of heavy scents makes me gag. So when I got a hold of Crabtree & Evelyn’s Lily eau de toilette, I was instantly hooked. I love fresh, airy fragrances, and
