What Would Love Do
A real life, fairy tale romance that started in a Lush Spa…
When Hal visited the Edinburgh Spa for a Synaesthesia treatment he was introduced to his therapist, Janine, and immediately felt butterflies in his stomach.
As the music started and Janine began his treatment he felt nervous, and his his stomach began to rumble. But, while silently cursing his noisy belly, he was shocked to hear Janine’s stomach respond!
Her tummy groaned and rumbled as if in conversation with his gastric gurglings. The two would later compare it to whale song – their bodies physically communing when they were both too shy to speak.
Following this auspicious meeting, a magical Edinburgh summer flew by with Janine and Hal’s paths crossing many times. Eventually on the second full moon of the month (yes, a legendary blue moon!) they stayed up all night together dancing. Well, after all, what else would love do?
I’m confused about the ingredients label relative to the bath bomb over and over. I’ve asked the Lush Kitchen to enlighten me. I’ll post if they answer.
I was able to get a sniff of this perfume, and i want to get a bottle. This perfume has tangerine and lavender. I love that It’s citrus-y without being too sweet, the lavender helps to lend the sweet tangerine a light and airy quality.
There’s a sort of powdery Snowcake-ish note in here as well. I’m not sure what this note is.
Normally citrus perfumes don’t last as long as i would like on my skin, but this seems to stay longer.
Here’s a demo and review video i recorded of my Lush UK Forum special Sultana perfume. Sultana is the Lush ‘Blackberry Bomb‘ scent.
Ingredients: DRF Alcohol, Perfume, Olibanum Oil (Boswellia carterii), Bergamot Oil (Citrus Aurantium bergamia), *Citral, *Limonene, *Linalool.

I adore cardamom. I mean i really like it A LOT, so keep that in mind.
Cardamom and coffee has cardamom, which is a fragrant spice, some of you might recognize it’s lovely scent in Chai tea.
At first spray, it has a absolutely mind-blowing yumminess factor to it.
Also, this perfume has a lot of throw.
The rose oil in this is not a primary player here. It adds a lovely but light floral note. I don’t smell it and say “I smell rose”.
The coffee isn’t primary either. Right now anyway the cardamom is the most primary, and i couldn’t be happier about that.
Unfortunately, at 30 minutes the scent diminished quite a lot. It’s just a remnant of it’s former self. This is the only reason i give this a 4 out of 5 rating. If the scent stayed as strong as when i first sprayed it, this would surely be a 5 out of 5 rating.

This is delightful. At first spray, the bright lavender is the primary note i smell. It’s nice and strongly scented.
At 10 minutes the lavender scent dimnished greatly and now the rose oil scent is present, and to me it resembles the Lush “Rose Jam’ scent slightly, just slightly. And there is a raspberry note present. Quite nice. It’s not a candyish raspberry nor a fake raspberry scent. It remains bright and even sparkly. it almost reminds me of raspberry soda.
At 30 minutes the lavender has disappeared completely. However, the rose, and especially the raspberry are more present than at first spray. In face i’d say the fragrance has gotten sweeter, in a good way. Now it’s turned into a sticky sweet raspberry rose jam scent on the specific place on my arm that i initially sprayed it. It’s warmer, thicker rose and raspberry now and less sparkly. The sparkliness isn’t gone though, it’s just less so as it dries down, turning more into a “yum” kind of scent. I can get what Simon Constantine’s daughter Amelie Mae is like, sparkly, fresh, sweet, young, and delightful.
I’m glad i was able to acquire one of these on Ebay. The crazy money i spent on it was worth it.
See my demo review video of this perfume below.
This is one of a 7-10 new perfumes in Lush Gorilla IV series, which will be sold to the public in the very near future.
This perfume was meant to remind one of coming home after a hard day and the way a home smells comforting, kind of like a mub of hot chocolate. This perfume has vanilla and Cocoa in it. When first sprayed, i can definitely smell the cocoa, it smells yummy.
On the dry down it gets kind of muddy, but once it dries completely the cocoa note returns. It smells warm, like coming home to a warm home with someone cooking something yummy.
Once it dries completely however the scent dissipates very much. This perfume in particular goes away quicker than the other Gorilla perfumes. I solved that by just spraying it two or three times on me, or spraying it a few times throughout the day.
In the video i smell it on my arm at wet spray, drying down, and total dry down.
