Crabtree & Evelyn's NEW Himalayan Blue Eau de Toilette Spray

Before this new fragrance from Crabtree & Evelyn arrived for my review, I kept wondering how the company would capture a journey made by early British expeditions to the Himalayas in search of the mystical blue poppy and bottle those scents they encountered along the way.  And yet, one whiff of Himalayan Blue is like your own private ticket to another time and place that is shrouded in exotic beauty and mystery, almost like you're climbing the path of mountains along this mystical place and taking that rare mixture of scents home in this sophisticated chypre floral fragrance.

A fresh stirring blast of citruses invigorates you from mandarin and orange leaf as you begin your soulful quest to adventure.  You're curious  to take in all the panoramic ancient beauty but follow the trail higher, traveling toward the smell of lemon, which adds to your excited energy as you explore the unknown.

The heart is where your true journey finally begins as you make your way through lush foliage and vegetation of black tea and ginger, to stare out at the Himalayan golden champaca and wildflowers unlike you've ever seen before.  The scent of rose captures your attention from the rose absolute and is enough to get you to dance barefoot and feel the thick carpet of wildflowers as you whirl in ecstasy, feeling the warmth of the day on your face.  The aroma of smoky black tea drifts toward you from the distance and it seems to delightfully heighten the subdued sweetness and spice flourishing in this secret sanctuary.

You want to absorb this foreign place with its hidden appeal but finally must move on in the base.   You feel that sensual  and smoky allure of this area with sandalwood, leather, the patchouli because it has already become a part of you.  Though you must depart for home, the journey will stay with you forever in the essence of unparalleled primitive beauty reborn in this haunting softly seductive fragrance as unique and special as the select women that wear it.

In my opinion Himalayan Blue is the perfect fragrance for the discriminating woman that is confident, romantic, and one with an adventurous spirit that is constantly challenging herself.  Fresh, feminine, and  yet lightly exotic and sweet with spice and woods for mystery and temptation, this fragrance is sure to please such a woman that never ceases to amaze.  Experience this magical sensory journey for yourself and you will never be the same!
