Thread: Nantucket Briar

  1. #1

    Default Nantucket Briar

    Take the spice/floral feel of the Original Guess Men, the slightly sharp warmth of Bois du Portugal, the powder of Royal Copenhagen, and blend. This is the best way I can describe Nantucket Briar, by Crabtree and Evelyn.

    It is not what I'd call a refined scent (a little rough around the edges). And I'm not completely sold on it. But it's definitely not boring.

    Anyone else tried this?

    I tried it by getting the hand cream. I just couldn't get into its overpowering powdery calvalcade. I gave it away and even she threw it out.

    Not necessarily an aversive scent to my nose but I do agree the powdery qualities are "in your face" and overwhelming.

    I frequent Crabtree a couple of times a year as my mother enjoys the Summer Hill line and I usually get her something from this range for Christmas. Not my cup of tea (too florally) but she loves it.

    My favorite fragrance from Crabtree is their Le Source bar soap -- classic subtle soapy smell. Now if they could turn that into a perfume I'd be all over it!

    The men's sandalwood cologne is okay but tends to go soapy.
    Beauty is an ecstasy; it is as simple as hunger.
    There is really nothing to be said about it.
    It is like the perfume of a rose: you can smell it and that is all.

    I really like C&E's shaving creams more than anything else.

    Looks like I'm going to have to join the club of people who are less than thrilled with it. After longer testing the powder part started to get to me too. Also, the spice part got a little too sharp. Even worse, when I held my nose close to my hand where I applied it, I almost got ill.

    Oh well.

    I don't recall it very well other than spiciness, but it didn't strike me as a keeper. Not bad either though.
