I’m a huge fan of Crabtree & Evelyn products and with a store (and tearoom) just up the road from me in Joburg’s Design Quarter, I’m often popping in to smell the latest fragrances or grab some of their traditional scones (they make the best strawberry jam in the world and the only one I’ll actually eat).
Today the brand celebrates its 40th anniversary, although it has only been in SA for 16 years. What started off as a small, family-run business, the brand now has over 400 stores worldwide. Recently, the Sandton City branch underwent a huge overhaul and if you haven’t had a chance to pop in and check it out, I suggest you do so soon. The Cavendish Square brand was also redone last month and I believe Hyde Park is scheduled next.
New launches for this year include Pomegranate, Argan & Grapeseed Oil; Wisteria; Avocado, Basil & Olive; La Source extensions and Fragrance on the Go – so keep an eye out for them. I personally can’t wait to try them out.
