Haul: Crabtree and Evelyn Iris Collection

This particular haul is actually overdue since last Christmas, the hauling was done during the insane Crabtree and Evelyn VIP Members' Preview sale (whereby all the sets were at 30% off, and that applies to all the items in the store, some items that were excluded were the ones already at 50% off).
The set came beautiful packed in a elegant purple suede makeup box with the mirror, which is currently nesting my lot of blushers, highlighters and pressed powders (i will try to photo it when i have the time to tidy up my stash). Normally, i would not be lured into purchasing items due to the packaging it comes in, for the Iris collection, both the collection and the packaging appeals to me, this splurge is unavoidable. : )
L-R: Iris Body Lotion, Body Wash and Body Cream.

Iris Body Wash-250ml or 8.4fl oz.

Iris Body Lotion-245ml or 8.3fl oz.

Iris Body Cream- 100g or 3.5fl oz.

Iris Triple Milled Soap-40g or 1.4fl oz.

Iris Eau de Toilette-100ml or 3.4fl oz.

The pretty Iris motif on the glass bottle.

A closer look at the pretty motif.
I don't have any Iris fragrance in my collection, was never a "floral" kind of gal, and have yet to come across one that i would like to wear. The Iris collection caught me by surprise with its subtle and refined yet very wearable scent that i do see myself reaching out for it in the mornings as well as during those relaxing weekends (if i don't have to work, a nice cup of tea with cookies would be ideal : ) )
The Christmas set is a good chance to haul if the Iris collection is your cup of tea, actually any haul during the VIP members' preview sale is a good one.
Do watch out for the Preview sale (end year) or monthly promotions that C&E does to promtion new range.
The items included in the set are a full sized fragrance (100ml), Bath and Body Gel (250ml), Body Lotion (245ml), 1/2 full sized Body Cream and a sample sized triple milled soap (40g), including the makeup case that the set came in, it cost around S$100 plus.
