While wandering the high street of DLF Select City Saket, I was taken over to a shop in one corner, which to me seemed like yet another unknown cosmetics brand. But when I entered the premises, I thought I had entered paradise.I was in Crabtree and Evelyn Store, DLF Select City, Saket.
Well, to be pretty honest, I had never heard about this brand, until now. I was awestruck by the soothing color splashes on delicately crafted collection, the infusion of thousands of perfumes, all providing a deep spa transit for my nostrils, and when I actually tried their hand care range, I was in love with my hands. (Like love at first sight) :p

We are dedicated to creating products and gifts that transform the ordinary rituals of daily life into extraordinary pleasurable experiences, and deliver upon our goal of Preserving A Fine Tradition ®.
The products are absolutely amazing. The first use only makes you feel and see the difference. They have various product ranges dedicated to a particular ingredient, or perfume.To be pretty honest, I loved all of them, but I still have few of my favorites 😀
They have wide variety of special therapies for your body, well they are a double treat actually, with all those aromas, it provides aroma therapy as well. One of my favorite picks was the Hand Therapy. Like I mentioned before, they have various ingredients to chose from.I used La Source – Dawn from Nature. After just one wash, of hardly 2 minutes, my hands felt so soft, and smelled oh-so-good. En route home, all I did was, sniff my hands at intervals :p
They have taken the therapies so seriously, that they have products purely dedicated to hand therapy system. To make things easier, they have introduced a complete package of Hand Therapy, which includes scrub, deep cleansing hand wash, hand therapy moisturizing wash, hand cream and much more.And to top it all, it comes in a beautiful floral clutch, which in itself is a win win!!
The collection has fragrances like La Source, West Indian Lime, Nantucket Briar, Lily, Iris, Lavender, India Hicks Island Living, Rosewater, Nomad, Wisteria, Evelyn Rose and much more to chose and indulge in.If I have my way, I would rather take away all their products :p
They not only have good range for women, but they have also produced amazing products for men. The Nomad collection is absolutely manly in fragrance. A must try for all men who like smelling good and masculine!!
I absolutely fell in love with India Hicks Rich Body Cream! I was just awing over it, wishing to have it somehow. The fragrance is dreamy, you can attain nirvana sniffing it. When you apply it on your skin, your skin feels so soft, moisturized and alive. If I have to suggest one product of all to someone, I will suggest this for sure.
The bottle of Summer Hill is so pretty. The floral pattern surely gives you the “Summer” feeling. And yes, they also have an offer of purchasing their products for a certain amount, and in return they will gift you the pack of 6 mini hand therapy tubes. Well a decent bargain eh?
They even have mini travel kits, containing all mini versions of complete therapies. Well, if I have to try a whole therapy range, I would rather go for the travel kit, as it is much cheaper, and covers all the products for me to 1st sample. 😀
My personal Feed Back
Collection : Is summer friendly.Cool fragrances provide you freshness and ails the heat.
Perfumes and products : Perfect for Summer/Spring usage. Helps you get a healthy, nourished and good smelling skin.
Variety : Is great. You have so many options to chose from.
Value for Money : Well I was disappointed when I saw the prices.If I have to buy it, I will think once in a blue moon, and might break my bank to buy just 1 product. I will give 6 out of 10
Will I ever be going back to buy more stuff? : Possibility. The aromas flatter me, and I would for sure go back. ^_^
Last but not the least, I would like to thank Ojasvee from magicbridalkits
