Fresh As

Fresh As perfume

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. 

You’ll love this if you like:

– Herbaceous fir.
– Karma perfume.
– Refreshing forest walks.

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. “

Nero

Nero perfume

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!

It has an odd chemically smell.

Its a shame as i wanted to love this.

Sappho perfume

“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.

List of ingredients

Especially when the description said this:

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.”

What Would Love Do?

What Would Love Do


This smells similar (not exact) to other Lush things such as Deep Sleep jelly, Unicorn Horn, or ickle baby bot. 

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.
