The story of Nantucket Briar
Abundant and aromatic, the wild briar rose adorns weathered cottage doorways and fog-filled harbours on Nantucket. But the "Grey Lady" (so-named for her oft misty shores) has an exotic side, too. For centuries, ships from around the world landed on her shores with rare spices and oils. The Nantucket Briar Collection is an eclectic mix of on-island ingredients and imports from afar. Scents of peony, wild rose and ambergris get a refreshing boost from the citrusy fragrance of bergamot. Meanwhile, notes of vanilla, patchouli and exotic spices add a proper dose of the unexpected.
Preserving a fine tradition
Crabtree & Evelyn was founded in 1972 by Cyrus Harvey. Inspired by the quintessential English country garden, the early home apothecary and pioneering British explorers, this young company was among the first to offer products infused with natural fruit, flower and plant essences. Today Crabtree & Evelyn is internationally known for original fragrances, luxurious bath and body products, gourmet foods and elegant gifts. And their dedication to embracing the riches of the world endures.
Explore everything. Keep the best.
Once the personal motto of 17th Century Englishman, John Evelyn, these words are the inspiration behind the Crabtree & Evelyn philosophy. One of the first naturalists and conservationists, Evelyn traveled throughout Europe, returning to Britain to share his discoveries from the wonderful cultures and natural environments he explored. The magnificent gardens of his grand estate, Sayes Court, were a wonder of the age. Today, Evelyn's legacy lives on in each carefully curated collection, and our company proudly bears his name.
The Crabapple Tree
Crabtree & Evelyn's icon, the Crab Apple Tree (Pyrus malus), is native to Britain and the ancestor of all cultivated apple trees. Prized for its lovely form and its usefulness in the home apothecary, the Crab Apple Tree represents beauty and the natural goodness inherent in our brand.
The English still room
The early home apothecary, or 'still room', existed in a time when the garden played an integral role in daily life. It was where fresh flowers, fruits and herbs from the orchards and gardens were distilled into fragrant waters for the bath and soothing essences for the skin. It was also where fruit preserves were created to brighten the winter larder. The little luxuries that came from the magic of the still room enhanced the quality of everyday life - an effect Crabtree & Evelyn strives to match.
