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.Crabtree & Evelyn Parisian Millefleurs Flower Water
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.

This looks and sounds gorgeous! That packaging <3
I sniffed this on Saturday. Very pretty floral but gone too soon, even the SA said is was very very light. Will wait for the new Serge Lutens to hit the UK.
