This picture was taken during my trip to Japan last year, and it was SPRING, my favorite season of the year. During spring, most of the parks in Japan are filled with colorful flowers especially sakuras. It’s really hard for me to explain it to you how beautiful the parks look like. It was like a scene that can only be seen in a movie, dreams or cartoons. It’s pretty hard to get this kind of views back in Malaysia because we only have summer here, which is pretty sad…
Another picture of spring in Japan. I took this picture while crossing a bridge at Kyoto. The view was gorgeous and the weather was prefect so people will just sit on the grass along the river and read their books. You definitely can’t see this activity back in Malaysia because of the hot weather; people rather read their books in an air-conditioned room hahaha.
Besides the view, the smell of spring is slightly different too due to the flowers blossoming. It makes the air feel extra fresh and relaxing. Imaging sitting in a field with full-bloomed flowers and newly grown leaf, it helps to relax not just your vision but your sensations t00.
Since we cant really enjoy this in Malaysia so Crabtree & Evelyn have launched a new range of fragrance and skincare collection called Somerset Meadow. This collection captures the uplifting green scent of wildflower delicately blended with notes of ivy and water lily. You can feel the scent by just reading it, right?
“The Somerset Meadow collection features a perfume gel, eau de toilette, bath and shower gel, body lotion and hand therapy. The Somerset Meadow collection is formulated with a heart of white blossoms, water lily and earthy geranium flourishes as if warmed by the morning sun. The scent of leaf, grass and fragrant petals are suffused by creamy clouds of musk, whilst willow and moss tether all the casually floating notes close to the skin and bring a soft, sensuous touch. With all the fresh, floral scent and refreshing ingredients, it helps to bright up your mood instantly after applying few drops on your skin.”
Let me take you away on a Somerset Meadow trip:-
The eau de toilette and eau de perfume gel have a fruity green floral fragrance and it’s perfect for the day or evening. Both can be sprayed on after a bath or shower for a light, refreshing fragrance. I personally love the idea of the eau de perfume gel because it’s great for touching up and whilst traveling. I’m the type of person who always carries a small bottle of perfume with me, so the Somerset Meadow perfume gel is prefect for me.
The body lotion and body & shower gel moisturizes and conditions your body with water lily and ivy extract. Since I’ve recently been quite into bubble baths, the body & shower gel came just in time for my bubble bath party because with the help of running water it can turn into a luxurious bubble bath!
I hope you enjoy your trip to the Somerset Meadow with me but the trip won’t just end like this. I have a little surprise for you…
Carbtree & Evelyn is launching a personality game on their Facebook page on the 20th – 26th May, 2013.
It’s a pretty simple but fun game, all you need to do is to answer a few simple questions like a personality quiz. Their selection of choices will determine what part of the meadow most suits your personality. The experience will be lightly animated and at the end, you will get to “invite” your friends to the meadow so your friends get to experience your meadow with you. Finally, you will be prompted to view the collection and submit a slogan on Somerset Meadow. The winner of the best slogan will be rewarded with 1 x Somerset Meadow set worth RM378 and 9 x Somerset Meadow perfume gel worth RM 60.
Our Somerset Meadow trip has finally come to an end. To those who are interested to bring the Somerset Meadow home with you, the Somerset Meadow Collection is available at all Crabtree & Evelyn retail shops nationwide from May 2013 onwards.
