The translation of ‘millefleurs’ is literally a thousand flowers which might make you think that Crabtree & Evelyn Parisian Millefleurs Flower Water is a powerful floral overload. Nothing could be further from the truth, and while there aren’t (thankfully) a thousand different flower notes banging together, it translates to a simple ‘bouquet’ scent filled with narcissus, rose, tuberose and violet. Although there are bottom notes of cypress, benzoin, elemi and woods, it is over-ridingly floral and fresh.
The bottle is beautiful – a real dressing table showpiece – and as you can see it comes with its own puffer atomiser in a golden colour. No surprises that it’s part of the Crabtree & Evelyn Heritage Collection. Although you might assume that the Crabtree & Evelyn Parisian Millefleurs Flower Water is old-fashioned, it’s one of the timeless, easy on the nose scents – pretty and undemanding.
With the trend for all things vintage still apace, give me this over a Cath Kidston iPhone cover any day – beautiful, fresh and spring-like fragrance and a bottle that’s truly ornamental. I’d keep it long after the fragrance had gone. I actually love that they’ve called it a flower water. The Crabtree & Evelyn Parisian Millefleurs Flower Water that you see here is the updated version of their original, and I’ve just spotted it is on an intro offer for £31.50 HERE instead of £45 just in case you feel tempted.
