Review: This is such a beautifully colored ballistic, purples and pinks abound in this ballistic, inside are more purples and rose pink flower petals which are strewn all around you when bathing with this floral lovely. This has a headier winter floral scent of rose, jasmine, ylang ylang, and it also has bright lavender to keep the scent from being too heavy. Lovely pink/purple water color also. You can’t help feeling girlie while bathing with the floral Chelsea Gardens ballistic. It was DCd in 2007. I think it’s a wonderful scent, and the is most definitely one of the most gorgeous color of ballistics I’ve ever seen. One would think this would be a 4 star ballistic for me. No. What gives this ballistic a “3” in my mind, are the ridiculously amount of flowers. Though they were as fresh, purple, and blue and beautiful as anything I’ve ever seen in my life, and even though initially it was akin to an uber Goddess bath, it began to to be too much after a few minutes. I’ve always loved ballistic with flowers in them that are from the UK, the flowers in their ballistics, any of their ballistics, are so fresh, brightly colored and lovely. Also, i’m a sucker for flower petals in the bath, but ..we are talking huge, big, giant purple flower heads. Many of them, stuck all over your skin on your arms and legs. Eventually as you shiver in the bathtub standing up trying to get the things off you, you notice the purple dye of the flower petals dripping down your arm like some alien blood fest. I’m glad i had a bath with a Chelsea Gardens, and i would like it if Lush were to make this again because i would like to use it again. This is not however a regular use bath bomb though.
