At the risk of sounding terribly outré, there’s something sexy…
Transport yourself to island life, where the sun is shining and the smell of limes and salt water waft in the ocean air. Maybe there’s even a hammock nearby. The venerable 40-year-old Crabtree & Evelyn brand, channels this moment with its timeless and newly repackaged West Indian Lime Cologne.
The light and refreshing cologne comes inspired by the rich ingredients of the West Indies: the crispness of lime and vetiver, orange flower and lemon undercut with a heart of spicy nutmeg, ginger and coriander. At its base: juniper, cedar, sandalwood and musky masculine notes.
Although designed as a masculine toilette—along with its extensive shave and body collection of luxe triple-milled soaps, body wash, shave cream and aftershave balm—we think the fragrance suits both genders equally. It’s fresh, classic and sophisticated. And its new matte black-with-chartreuse packaging will, by the way, add a sleek tailored accent to both his and her dressing tables.
