The pursuit of...a luxurious handcream

I love products that smell of Rose- it's such a classic, elegant smell.
Some people find it overpowering but for me I like the traditional scent.
Crabtree & Evelyn Rosewater Hand Therapy is my favourite handcream of all time.
It's a rich cream with a beautiful, quite strong rose smell.  It leaves my hands feeling velvety smooth and soft for a long time after applying.

I used to only be able to find Crabtree & Evelyn as a concession in department stores such as Debenhams and John Lewis but recently I have noticed 'Boots' are stocking the Crabtree & Evelyn Hand Therapy Collection too which is great.

It comes in a small handbag friendly 25g sized tube or the full sized 50g version.

When I used to buy this cream a few years ago, the packaging was different.  It used to have a lovely traditional vintage look, with a white background...It is a shame they have changed it to this modern pale pink look, as although it's still cute, I prefer the original.
If you buy the larger 50g size, it comes presented in a lovely box-the packaging of this is reminiscent of its original branding (below). 
It looks so pretty, I think this could be perfect as a little gift.

Crabtree and Evelyn have an array of different hand creams in their Hand Therapy collection, all beautifully packaged and presented.  Click here for their website.
I also like the fragrance of their Gardeners Hand Therapy cream which comes in a pretty copper coloured tube.
Let me know if you have come across any other Rose fragranced hand creams, especially if they have vintage, traditional packaging :)
Love, Ivy George x
