This is a new product for Valentines 2023. My short Tub Demo Video is coming and will be attached to this post shortly.
This is a Lush bath melt. Lush has had many different designs of bath melts through the yearsz This Love Island bath melt is reminiscent of their original cupcake shaped bath melts. Their most famous cupcake type is called ‘Floating Island’. So tou can see the play on words of ‘Love Island.
Floating island is a dessert. And Love Island is the name of a reality show in England about couples on an island.
The scent if Love Island is that of the Lush Keep it Fluffy’ Lush has made the perfume a few times throughout the years since 2004 when they opened their sister company ‘B Never Too Bust To Be Beautiful’.
The fragrance is a floral and fruity combination made with rose, lemon, jasmine, bergamot.
Lush has created many kinds of different products in the scent. Their sister company B Never also made candles, incense, liquid bath oil, bath powder, etc.
This bath melt’s scent isnt very strong. Its nice, but it could be stronger imo.
The bath melt is a rose color with tiny silver sparkle mixed throughout.
I would give this a 4 out of 5. Mostly because i love the shape, the look, and the scent.
3.5 out of 5 rating. See my video below where i (try) to describe it.
The scent of the jelly used to have honey, vodka and sweet Fig in it. But those aren’t in the ingredient list for the body spray.
It’s a challenging scent for me to to describe. It’s different than anything lush has made, except for the jelly. Quirky. It’s much better when it dries down. When it’s wet it’s more difficult for me to smell the notes. It’s got cinnamon, grapefruit, ginger and osmanthus.
Jilted Elf body spray becomes sweeter and more resinous once it dries down. It’s got light medium staying power, and not much throw.
This is such a very different scent. I love the Jilted Elf shower jelly. It’s like a cacophony of notes but somehow they work together!figs, ginger, cinnamon, grapefruit, vodka and honey. it’s both fruity and spicy. i’ll be buying the christmas body spray.
“Revel in this playful blend of sharp grapefruit to perk you up, and spicy cinnamon to get the blood pumping. Don’t leave this one behind this Christmas…”
Someone in my youtube comments described the scent well: Jalapeño Jelly Bellies
How to use: Spritz all over the body, avoiding the underarm area, for an instant pick-me-up!”
I made a video describing this scent. The video is below, just go to 7:32 in the video for Confetti.
Confetti €90/£70 for 100ml
Emma’s initial workings were based on Rose, Violet, Coffee and Pear as a combination. Rowena smelt the perfume and thought it smelt of Sugar Almonds (a pastel coloured candy Almond – Usually found as a gift on the table at British Weddings). In Italy they have the same tradition for celebratory events and the Sugar Almonds are known as Confetti – which was a perfect fit …so much so, that this will be Emma’s signature scent for her wedding in 2020.
Ingredients: Violet leaf absolute, Rose oIl, sandalwood oil
Olfactory description: The three stages of relationships are featured in this perfume. The innocent of violet leaf, like the beginnings of all relationships. The sensuality and deepness of love from the Roses and the comforting solidity of all marriages provided by the sandalwood oil. Sweet and floral.
This is my favorite of the five exclusive body sprays that the Lush community voted for amongst the ten scents that Lush gave us to choose from. Naturally i voted for this one. The Mama Mia body scrub is one of my all time favorite smelling products. The first time i sniffed that vanilla and pink grapefruit scent i was in love.I love all five of the scents that won, but Mama Mia is definitely my favorite.
It’s such a Yummy scent.
When the body spray is first sprayed on it smells like something you would eat for dessert. It smells like strawberry cake with orange icing. The scent stays true while it’s drying.
In 15 minutes it’s fairly dried down, and while the scent has faded somewhat the yummy notes still smell the same as when i first sprayed it on.
I am so glad Lush made this into a body spray. I would rate this a 5 out of 5.
If you like vanilla or pink grapefruit you’ll probably love this.
here’s my video where i describe the scents of all five and read the ingredients etc
Winter garden body spray is one of five exclusive new December 2020 body sprays out of nine that we voted on via the Lush Labs site. Winter Garden scent is from the Christmas 2020 bath bomb of the same name. Lush hasn’t made this scent before in a bath bomb, body spray nor any product.
It’s always exciting when Lush creates a new product with a new scent that has a really great scent. Winter Garden bath bomb is this kind of product, so it’s no wonder we voted for this to be made into a body spray.
Winter Garden is a floral scent with the primary note of ylang ylang. It smells pretty. It’s a somewhat more complex floral scent to my nose than some other Lush florals. Winter florals are represented here, on top of the bath bomb are yellow, pink and blue flower petals. They look so small and delicate and perfect, like fairies placed them there.
I sprayed a good single spray on each fore arm. Right off the bat the scent of different kinds of flowers came alive on my skin. It made me go ‘oooh!’. You have to love the scent of flowers to like this body spray, so if you’re not a florals person you may want to smell this in store if you can first. there is no citrus, fruity notes in this fragrance. Nothing that smells sweet nor anything bakery like. it’s not earthy smelling at all, nor are there any green or woody notes that i can pick out. Just a beautiful layering of florals. It’s smells like a winter wedding bouquet.
While i do like citrus scent,and all scents actually, i am a florals person by nature. Some of my most favorite Lush perfumes and Lush bath products have floral scents. Lush doesn’t make them too much anymore like they used to in the early 2000’s.
That’s why this body spray fragrance is so special to me.
It’s dried down on my arm now and it’s still quiet strong. It still maintains the complexity of the fragrance. it gets a wee bit more powdery as it dries, which is nice actually, it’s not so alcohol-y as it was when wet.
I will say that the scent is very ylang ylang forward. So if you don’t like ylang ylang..
I always have my husband smell it too and tell me what it smells like to him. My husband said he couldn’t quite tell but that it was nice. i said ‘it’s floral’. I knew he had bad experiences with florals. He tells me of when he was young and his school teacher used to come to his desk wearing a floral perfume that was so obnoxious it made him sick. When i asked him tonight’s s this perfume like your teachers floral perfume?’ He said ‘not at all’. I take that as a good sign. 🙂
I would recommend this. And i would rate it a 4 out of 5 rating.
Here’s a video that i created where i review, describe, rate each of the five new body sprays including Winter Garden.
These new body sprays come to Lush USA December 17 2020.
Sparkly Pumpkin is one of five body sprays that won the voting process from ten fragrances that we voted on. I didn’t vote for this one 🙂 That said i do like the products that it’s named after. I just wanted to vote for others more.
The bubble bar that this fragrance is made from is more like fruit punch than the body spray. To me the Pumpkin Spice body spray seems fruity but with a slight floral/flowery, spicy note. It’s nice, just not as fruit punch like as the Sparkly pumpkin bubble bar and the Mr. Punch soap.
lush description of the bubble bar:
At the end of a long day, pop this Sparkly Pumpkin into the bath. As you crumble its golden shimmeryness under running water, you’ll feel instantly re-energized. An uplifting blend of juniperberry, grapefruit and lime oils will fill the room with an enticing, cocktail-like punch. And as you sink deep under the glittering gold water, you won’t be able to keep from smiling – probably because this little pumpkin is made to make every day bright.
It must be the juniper berry oil. Juniper Berry is famously known as the berry from which the alcoholic spirit Gin is obtained.
Unlike some perfumes or body sprays sparkly pumpkin’s fragrance stays pretty much the same when it dries down as when it’s first sprayed. It’s got a decent amount of throw also., even after having dried a bit.
I like this Sparkly pumpkin body spray. I would rate this a 4 out of 5. It smells more like a grown up version of fruit punch 😉
Here’s a video i made reviewing, demoing and describing each of the five exclusive body sprays, including sparkly pumpkin.
Space Girl body spray was one of ten favorite Lush product fragrances that Lush had us vote from during their LushLabs voting. Space Girl was one of the five winning product fragrances with the most votes.
I’ve always loved the Space Girl bath bomb when it was sold in stores and i was so bummed when Lush discontinued it. It was made with Black currant, Grapefruit, and bergamot. And it was a pale lilac color with silver glitter mixed in and red glitter dust on top to simulate the planet saturn and its red dust rings. Once inside the water it would release a red glitter which would look like a comet on the bottom of the tub. SO cool.
The space girl fragrance is a fruity scent. It’s citrussy and berryish. Citrussy because of the grapefruit and bergamot, and berryish because of the black currant. Black currant is the main ingredient in ‘The Comforter’ just for reference.
When i first spray the body spray on my arms it’s of course very strongly scented and alcohol-y. Also, when it’s wet i find that acrid note that some people find off putting in black currant. But once the body spray starts the dry down process on my skin-that acrid note disappears and just the fruity goodness remains.
The almond oil that Lush added to the body spray is nice. It adds a smooth and slightly sweet note to the fruity mix of citrus and berryliciousness.
As far as staying power this is better than most at staying true to it’s fragrance for any length of time once it dries down on the skin.
There’s a somewhat bitter note in between the fruity goodness. So it keeps the fragrance from being too sweet. The resulting scent reminds me of raspberry candy of some sort.
It’s not as sweet and fruity as Roller/Yummy Mummy for instance, but it’s more fruity and sweet than Sparkly Pumpkin.
I would recommend this if you like fruity scents that are different citrus/berry blends.
The scent lasts longer on the skin than Ectoplasm body spray, and about the same as the three others.
These are other Lush products with the same scent
Goth Fairy Sparkle massage bar
And a new Lush Harajuku special edition bubble bar for 2020 sold on the Lush UK and the Lush USA web sites.
I would rate this a 4 out of 5 rating.
Here’s a video where i spray on, review and describe these five body sprays.
Whereas i expected to love the more expensive fragrances of the bunch and it turned out i didn’t, i decided to buy Fresh As even though the ingredients didnt necessarily grab me. As irony woukd have it-Fresh As is my favorite of the five.
It smells as if Lush Needles & Pine shower jelly, Lush Guardian of the Forest , and Lush Princess Cottongrass perfume had a baby.
The fragrance of it is light and airy. It smells less like a forest and more like a meadow. Its not earthy its green and airy and gorgeous.
It smells just as beautiful when its wet as when it’s dry.
Welcome to the wilderness. With bracing fir needle absolute and hints of balsamic benzoin resinoid you’ll soon be feeling fresh as…
Revitalising fir and tagetes oils mingle in each vivid spritz to surround you with the bracing draw of nature. If any scent can embody the freshest of forests, snapping sticks underfoot and the warmth of a snugly scarf, then this is it.
For a limited time only, 30ml bottles of this perfume will be available to order online. This perfume and the rest of The Florence Collection are also available in 100ml bottles in your nearest perfume library. “
I expected to love this perfume, after all im a neroli freak. I.love all things from lush that are primarily neroli based like ‘frozen’ or ‘love snd light’ body lotion or ‘prince’ cplogne. But unfortunately, no matter how many timrs i try this on me i just don’t like it. It has a strange note in it that makes it smell odd. None of the normal neroli goodness comed through. No matter if it wet or after its dried.
A royal favourite blended with an elevating wealth of zesty bergamot and neroli.
Bursts of floral neroli meet smouldering petitgrain oil, creating a fresh and woody fragrance. This perfume was inspired by the origins of the name Neroli. One theory suggests it arose from Emperor Nero, an avid perfume and fragrant flower enthusiast. Another surmises it stemmed from a much-loved French noblewoman named Anne Marie, Princess of Nerola, renowned for adorning her signature gloves and bath water with uplifting neroli oil.”
You’ll love this if you like:
– Fresh, green notes. – Sun perfume. – Regal scents.
I LOVE Sun perfume, and i dont know ehy they compare it with Sun because it smells NOTHING like it. I wish it did. I have both and nope!
“For a limited time only, 30ml bottles of this perfume will be available to order online. This perfume and the rest of The Florence Collection are also available in 100ml bottles in your nearest perfume library.”
Sappho is one of five perfumes which are only sold at the Florence, Italy Perfume Library store. But Lush Uk has them temporarily on their retail site uk.lush.com
I happened to be on the site looking at the mothets day producys and saw them there!
I wanted to like Sappho so much. I bought it because the ingredients vanilla, jasmine, sandalwood, tonka, orris, tobacco and anise seemed perfect.
You’ll love this if you like: – Powdery vanilla scents. – Vanillary perfume. – Sunny sapphic sensuality on a Greek island.
But when i spray it on, it smells great for a minute then these note come through thats like licorice, jaine and tobacco and this overrides the lovely vanilla quality.
If the licorice-y note wasnt there it would be so good, but unfortunately it burns my nose, just turns strange and is way too strong with my body chemistry. The part thats left over loooonngg after its dried down hours later is aactually kind of nice
actually kind of nicely soft and vanilla like, but it takes literally hours to become this nice scent. I think Lush shpuld take the anise out of it.
“Fell in love with a girl?
Bittersweet and inescapable, this ode to a striking poetess, the Tenth Muse, will shake your senses. Classical orris entwines with carnal jasmine to enchant deep desires.”
I bought five Italy perfume library store exclusives that were surprisingly on the Lush Uk site when i was looking for something else!
Here is a video reviewing and demoing them at length to help with your purchasing decisions.
I should love them for all intents and purposes, according to the ingredients. And theyre the two most costly of the bunch. I just dont understand. 🤔 So im wearing them again today one on each arm, just to see if theres any change in my dislike of them. *Crosses my fingers*
I think Fresh As is the only one of the five that are truly impressive imo. And as far as the other four not onky do they not smell good compared to past lush gorilla perfumed, but a large part of the fragrance just disappears too fast (which is good if one doesnt like it i suppose) but gosh theyre like the opposite of the new lush body spray fragrances which seem to be more concentrated and last awhile on the skin, especially being almost half the price of a couple of these perfumes.
Sappho P €195/£150 for 100ml
When smelling this fragrance, Mark immediately referenced Sappho, a prolific greek poetin the Archaic period (NOT a goddess!). She also ran her family’s shipping business whilst her brothers were away. Very little of her work survives from antiquity. For many people Sappho is the symbol of female homosexuality. She lived on the island of Lesbos and Platodescribes Sappho as the 10th Muse.
Notes from the Nose:I knew for Florence I wanted to incorporate a heavy Orris/Iris base into a perfumes that represents the Florence Lily (the Iris Flower), the symbol of Florence …and this was it.
Olfactory description: Fresh and vibrant greens in the opening mirrors this vivid statement the perfume makes. Fresh As..is balanced by the earthy Orris and fruitiness of tagettes. Serene like a stroll in a Renaissance floral garden.
Created in 2019 by Perfumer, Emma Dick
Grassy meadows and Siberian pines, the morning after heavy rain. Earthy orris serenely takes control of the urban landscape, leaving in its wake a renaissance floral garden.
Created in 2019.
Confetti €90/£70 for 100ml
Emma’sinitial workings were based on Rose, Violet, Coffee and Pear as a combination. Rowena smelt the perfume and thought it smelt of Sugar Almonds (a pastel coloured candy Almond – Usually found as a gift on the table at British Weddings). In Italy they have the same tradition for celebratory events and the Sugar Almonds are known as Confetti – which was a perfect fit …so much so, that this will be Emma’s signature scent for her wedding in 2020.
Ingredients: Violet leaf absolute, Rose oIl, sandalwood oil
Olfactory description: Thethree stages of relationships are featured in this perfume. The innocent of violet leaf, like the beginnings of all relationships. The sensuality and deepness of love from the Roses and the comforting solidity of all marriages provided by the sandalwood oil. Sweet and floral.
Created in 2019 by Perfumer, Emma Dick
The sugared almonds at an Italian wedding tell a story in three acts. Young love, the innocence of violet leaf. A sensual rose blooms as the relationship deepens, until the final chapter reveals the lasting comfort of sandalwood oil. Created in 2019.
Frangipani €90/£70 for 100ml
Frangipani is thought to refer toa fragrance made for perfuming the gloves of a Roman noble, the probably mythical Marquis of Frangipani. This perfume was ‘composed of every known spice’ and probably included a large amount of Orris root, musk and civet as these were standard perfumery ingredients at the time and Sweet Almond oil was used to soften and perfume gloves in the Renaissance. The Frangipani plant (Plumeria) was thought to resemble this fragrance.
Our perfume might smell familiar as it is similar toour solid hand serum – Frangipani glove.
Olfactory description: Creamy sandalwood and scrumptious almonds leans into the sweet frangipani and the perfume finishes off with a bright white floral and woody base. Starts sweet and finishes with a slightly smoky finish.Guaiacwood Oil in its raw form leans smokey (like cedarwood virginian)
Created in 2019 by Perfumer, Emma Dick
The legacy (or myth) of the Marquis of Frangipani: a delicate dusting of sweet almond used to fragrance gloves. Across the ocean, a flower bearing a similar scent had not yet been discovered, but would eventually inherit the Frangipani name. Created in 2019.
Nero €160/£125 for 100ml
Inspired by the origins of the name Neroli. The first is that the Emperor Nero inspired the term Neroli as he was a huge perfume and fragrant flower enthusiast. The information I read before creating the perfume was ‘The name Neroli is thought by some to originate from Anne Marie, Princess of Nerola, She used Neroli to perfume her gloves and her bath water and her popular gloves, called Guanti Di Neroli was the original name for this perfume.
Olfactory description: A classic homage to the traditional citrus eau de cologne that dawned crisp male tailored suits. The petitgrain creates a woody depth to a light and airy citrus.
Created in 2019 by Perfumer, Emma Dick
A classical portrait of the Princess of Nerola, her gloves delicately fragranced with the neroli that she’s thought to have named. Enter the Emperor Nero. Woody depths of petitgrain smoulder, and citrus notes of bergamot rise from the ashes, neglecting the burning city of Rome. Created in 2019.

Coco Loca is in the same scent family as Lush Big Calm shower jelly, Lush Big Calm body lotion, Big Calm solid perfume, Lush Yellow Submarine bath bomb, and Coco Loco solid shower oil.
Its made with orange oil, coriander, and lemon grass oil. The scent is a tropical pineapple and coconut smell.
When i first sprayed this on my arm once i did not smell anything remotely coconutty nor pineappleish. I was about to give this body spray a 2 out of 5 rating, meaning i wouldnt recommended…when i tried it again on my other arm, tbis time spraying two sprays instead of one and i waited until it wad tptally dry which was 15 minutes later. i sniffed my arm and finally! I was able to smell that tropical scent i remember so well and enjoy in the Big Calm jelly!
So tge key to this particular body spray is to wait until its totally dry before you make a decision.
That said, its not as strong of a scent as some of the other body sprays ive reviewed.
But its slightly swret and smells like a pina colada. So.i raisedy initial rating of this body spray to a 3 out of 5 rating. Meaning i would recommend it, but there are many othrt body sprays that i would choose over Coco Loco.
“Need a mini vacation? Mist on a little Coco Loco for a fresh breeze of palm trees, sandy beaches and total relaxation. Brazilian orange, coriander and lemongrass oils give lightness to the creamy coconut base of this perfume, evoking memories of your perfect tropical getaway. This spritzer is just as deliciously scented as the shower oil of the same name, so layer on the scent after the shower to make the vacation vibes last a little longer.” Lush

I remember the first time i smelled a brand new Yoga Bomb when they first came out in Lush Uk. Oh my. It smelled both fruity and woody and floral. I was mesmerized. And of course the rainbow of color it produced hooked me even further. So i was very excited when i learned that Lush Uk were making a body spray fragrance of Yoga Bomb.
I hoped it would smell just like the bomb.
I am not disappointed. Not only does it smell like the bomb, it smells even stronger.
Its all at once spicy, floral and fruity. Its made with frankincense, sandalwood, and ho wood. A perfect word for this fragrance is meditative. Yes Meditative.
Unlike some lush body spray fragrances It smells the same wet as it does dry so there are no surprises with yoga bomb spray. It lasts long on my skin and my husband loves how i smell.
Im very glad i purchased this. Its on of my favorites in the lush body spray category.
“Inhale calm, exhale worries. This rich, grounding fragrance will have you feeling at peace in no time. A balancing blend of sandalwood, ho wood and olibanum oils offer an earthy, cleansing vibe, while its sunshiney cassie absolute aroma awakens your senses. This is the perfect spray to shake life back into your gym gear.”
Roller bath bomb is my favorite Lush bomb for looks and scent. I love everything in this scent family. I love the caramelly strawberry notes of this scent. Its very sweet and very strong when first sprayed. So keep in mind if you dont like sweet scents you might not enjoy roller spray.
As i show in the video i sprayed 1 1/2 sprays and as soon as it dries down it lessens in strength but not as much asany body sprays do. Roller stays pretty true to how it smells in the bottle. It smells the ssme on my skin. I only had to spray this 2-3 times during the day for it to last all day so its fairly strong comparatively speaking.
Scent Description:Within this delectable strawberry and cream scent swims a harmonious mingling of geranium, fresh Brazilian orange and sweet tonka absolute.
You’ll love this if you like:
– Bold geranium florals.
– Magic Mushroom bubble bar or Yummy Mummy shower gel.
– Hitting the strawberry fields for some wholesome berry picking.
5 out of 5 rating. Vanilla, Jasmine, Lemongrass, Rose.
In the above picture I show the current Lush 2021 “Keep It Fluffy bubble bottle’ solid bubble bar, made in the same scent as the perfume.
Lush used to haver a sister company called “B Never Too Busy To Be Beautiful’ in the mid 2000’s in England. They made bath and beauty products like the current lush that were a bit more upscale. They also made or remade many things that they used to sell when they were called “Cosmetics To Go’. Lush made 10 different perfumes at this boutique, along with bath and beauty products the same fragrances as the perfumes. One of the ten perfumes were called “Keep It Fluffy”.
In the above and below photos I show the different bottles that Lush/B Never made this perfume in.
I tried pretty much everything at the b Never boutique, being that the lush UK site had a tab to order online from B Never, and delivered it to those of us customers who lived in the United states. And while I tried everything there and I liked much of it, Keep It Fluffy was one of my favorites. I Like rose. I always have.
Keep It Fluffy is a soft, pretty scent that is fresh nd clean but also floral. It’s not too sweet. Not too rosy, not too jasmine. It’s just right. This scent is like the younger sister to Lush “Fever” perfume, which is another one of my favorite perfumes from Lush..
This was one of my favorites at the B Never boutique. I order everything in this scent. Lush description: The Doris Day off bubble bars. Lie back and dream of old school glamour. Powdery vanilla and uplifting lemongrass pair perfectly to create a pretty scent. Sensual and Heady Jasmine takes you from day into sultry nights. Soothing, powdery vanilla leaves you feeling comforted and warm.
Here is a 4 minute video I made for you describing this fragrance.
Oi, darling, varda a new smellie? This intriguing, sophisticatedly sweet bananary perfume is sure to take your fancy. Unique, chic and unforgettable – it’s one to wear.
Originally a Be Never Too Busy To Be Beautiful perfume, released under a different name in 2004.
This fragrance used to be called ‘Ladyboy’ when Lush was called ‘B Never Too Busy to be Beautiful ‘. It is made with oak moss, seaweed, violet, and some note that is banana-ish.
Lush has made three violet forward perfumes.
Tuca Tuca, Ladyboy/Fantabulosa, and V.
Fantabulosa does have an undernote of mossiness because of the oak moss and seaweed oils in it.
I would describe this scent as a fruity floral, with primary violet note, and it’s a sweet violet, but not as sweet as Lush other violet perfume Tuca Tuca.
The yellow solid bybble bar inthe shape of a perfume bottle is also called ‘Fantabulosa’, and has the samescent as the Fantabulosa perfume and the Lush Ladyboy perfume. Notice the both have a banana on them.
This scent was originally made for men and women. one of Lush first unisex scents. It was wildly popular. lush made a soap, shower gel, etc of this scent.
Fabulosa is a fairly long lasting fragrance as well, staying on my skin a good amount of time before reapplication was necessary.
If you like unusual scents that are sweet, or even if you love violet, you’ll enjoy Fantabulosa.
Here’s a video i made describing the scent in depth.
