Cyanide Pill

4 out of 4 rating

See my demo video below.  Initially Cyanide Pill has a fruity creamy, comforting kind of scent, then comes a bitter almond note, almost makes me wrinkle my nose.  Luckily I smell a vague cherryish note too.

There is a silver glitter in the middle of this yellow bath bomb, which disperses into the water and looks pretty and glittery.  Lush North America made a soap in 2015 called “Hands of Friendship’ which shares it’s scent with the Cyanide Pill. Lush also made a bath bomb called ’13 States’ with the same scent. I took a pic of them below. Additionally Lush also made a silver bath oil called “Delight” (I took a pic below) in the same scent.


When Lush had a gallery space built to introduce their new Gorilla III range of perfumes from their new “Death and Decay” series, they had a gallery room for each perfume they were introducing, including site and sound to match the perfume.  Cyanide perfume was one of them gallery displays.  However Lush never released the Cyanide perfume, turns out they only used the scent for the gallery display.  We’re told that this new Cyanide pill bath bomb has the scent of that Gorilla III ‘Cyanide’ gallery room.  I’ll have to try another one to make sure but i’m not sure i like the smell of this one. 2015 3.50 gpb / $5.75

Turns out I dont hate it, but i dont love it. It sure is cute though, looking like a cyanide pill.

I took this picture below of the two Pills that Lush has made over the years. 😊

The Lush bath oil in my picture below called ‘Delight‘ has the same scent.

These bath bombs below, including Cyanide Pill, were first introduced in 2014, at the time they were exclusive to the Lush Oxford Street Superstore.
