Crabtree & Evelyn Haul and Kolkata Store Tour | Where to Buy it Cheaper

How many times was the store display soo attractive that you entered with no clue of what to get?
(Happens mostly at cookie shop and patisseries. No? )

On the day we went for the Keihl’s Event, I took a visit at the newly opened Crabtree & Evelyn store at Quest Mall, Kolkata. Being a skincare lover, it was a candy land for me!
I aimed for the Black Mud soap but it was out of stock so, I settled for two gift sets.

Crabtree & Evelyn London Gift Box Pouch Haul


Look how cute the detailings are inside the paper bag from Crabtree & Evelyn...

 About C&E - Crabtree & Evelyn is a retailer of body and home products with stores globally. Founded in 1972, Crabtree & Evelyn uses over 160 “natural botanical ingredients” in its skin care products


Crabtree & Evelyn London Gift Box Pouch Orange Pomegranate


The first was obviously Tarocco Orange, Eucalyptus & Sage. Only my browser knows how many times I have visited Feelunique.com to buy a C&E Tarocco Orange set but was not aware of the smell so saved myself from getting it.

But, the moment I tried it in store, I knew I had to have it. I laid my eyes on a paper box one but later found this pouch which is reusable. The pouch also had an additional nail file block. I was sold.

This set is called Crabtree & Evelyn Tarocco Orange Eucalyptus & Sage Great Escapes Gift Set

Crabtree & Evelyn Torocco Orange Eucalyptus and Sage Hand Care Cream India

~*~ My FIRST C&E Hand Cream ~*~

Crabtree & Evelyn Tarocco Orange Eucalyptus & Sage Great Escapes Gift Set contains:
- Crabtree & Evelyn Tarocco Orange, Eucalyptus & Sage Skin Invigorating Bath & Shower Gel 50ml
- Crabtree & Evelyn Tarocco Orange, Eucalyptus & Sage Skin Refreshing Body Lotion 50ml
- Crabtree & Evelyn Tarocco Orange, Eucalyptus & Sage Hand Therapy 25g
- Nail Buffer



But who buys just ONE thing so, I went on smelling every product. There were many nice things but finally decided on Pomegranate.

Crabtree & Evelyn London Pomegranate Argan Grapeseed Gift Box Mini

Luckily, there was another gift set with Pomegranate, Argan & Grapeseed.

This box is made of cardboard but the doors are magnetic. I am saying door and not lid because it opens like a door and I love that!

Now, some pictures of the newly opened store at Quest Mall, Kolkata.....

Crabtree & Evelyn London Gift Box and Pouch India

Check the other sizes of the 'gift box with doors' available at the store - I got the one from the top. See how large the ones are at the bottom. Also, these comes in different variants other than Pomegranate like Rosewater, Hysteria, Apricot and even Tarocco Orange




Crabtree & Evelyn London Gift Box Pouch India

THAT paper box with bow on table? That is the first I picked and ended up with the one beside it because of the reusable pouch. The ones beside it was also nice but had some variant that I was not interested in or was it Tarocco Orange without the nail file? *trying to remember*

The most celebrated Hand Creams of Crabtree and Evelyn

The beautiful Crabtree and Evelyn Store




Crabtree & Evelyn London Rosewater Kolkata India
Crabtree & Evelyn Rosewater Range is another famous line of bath products.


I liked I more thing - a perfume - Evelyn Rose - loved it - hated the bottle - skipped. The SA gave me a sample of the lotion for the same. Let's see if the sample makes me change my mind. Meanwhile, let me know if you know any good rose perfume that does not smell too sweet and has some citric notes.




Now, the BITTER part - They are priced as follows in India -

Crabtree & Evelyn Tarocco Orange Eucalyptus & Sage Great Escapes Gift Set - Rs 1695
Crabtree & Evelyn Pomegranate, Argan & Grapeseed Mini Duo Rs 1195

I am not complaining here because the price is high. I am complaining because they are sold for a far lesser price at Feelunique.com. The Great Escapes Set is sold for £15 ( ~ Rs 1550) and Mini Duo Set for  £8 ( ~ Rs 830). Feelunique.com ships for free!  Plus, feelunique.com is running Buy 2 Get 3 Offer on all C&E products. This means, I could have saved around Rs 300 on both products and got another gift box for free!

You can imagine how sad I am but I purchased them in the heat of the moment and the Pomagranate Duo set is not available there. So, my heart is not burning as it should have.

I am in fact planning to get some more things from Feelunique now.....
