Founded in 1972 by Cyrus Harvey, Crabtree & Evelyn has evolved from a small, family run business, into renowned and respected company it is now, famed for its original, luxurious fragrance, beautiful gifts and well deserved treats.
Now celebrating 40 years in business, Crabtree & Evelyn is inspired by the 17th century English botanist, John Evelyn. He was also a keen traveller, recording details of the breath-taking natural environments he encountered: his personal motto "Explore everything, keep the best", still provides our inspiration to this very day.
The crab apple tree, native to Britain, is prized for feeding and healing the human body, and represents the beauty and natural goodness inherent in our brand. Crabtree & Evelyn continue to whole heartedly embrace the riches of the natural world, using fruit, plant and herbal essences throughout our product range.
