See my demo video below. Cyanide Pill has a fruity creamy, comforting kind of beginning scent, then comes a bitter almond note, almost makes me wrinkle my nose. 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.
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 smells of this one. 2015 3.50 gpb / $5.75
