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.
These are the nine discontinued products Lush chose for us to vote on. They will pick four, and one exclusive never made before product.
These are the products that won
Here are my photos of these products.
Lush ‘Violet Nights’ liquid bath oil.
This is a former 1993 ‘Cosmetics To Go’ company product, (Lush before they called themselves Lush), which Lush reintroduced back in 2011, and again in the Lush Kitchen in 2014. Cosmetics To Go had four or five different bath oils. Knights in White Chocolate, Saucery, Moody Blues, and one more i can’t remember. I’ll have to look in my cosmetics to go catalogs.
This purple oil turns into a milky white in the water.
This is up for the vote for the Lush Kitchen Jan 2021 subscription box .
It’s made with Violet, sandalwood, vanilla, ylang ylang.
Some folks don’t like it because the smell is not good to them. I would rate this a 4 out of 5.
Lush makes a perfume called ‘V’ that is the same scent.
I have a video demo of its texture and opacity in a glass up close on my lushalot youtube channel and also on my lushalot instagram account if you want to check it out.
Lush ‘Vanilla Fountain’ bath bomb.
Up for the vote for the Lush Kitchen Jan 2021 subscription box. This was originally created in 2008. And it’s been remade in the former incarnation of the Lush Kitchen 3 or 4 times. I’d rate it a 3 out of 5
One time Lush Uk made giant vanilla fountains called Vanilla Mountain for purchase on their retail website that was three of four times the size.
Vanilla Fountain is made with the Lush ‘Vanillary’ perfume scent. Ingredients: Sodium Bicarbonate, Citric Acid, Perfume, Vanilla Absolute, Jasmine Absolute, Tonka Absolute, Sandalwood, Gardenia Extract, Colour 45350, Vanilla Pod.
It’s a fast fizzer and not as creamy as you would think. it doesn’t color the water. It smells sweet and vanillary because of the tonka bean. Lush has made many products in this scent, you may have used one of them:
Vanilla Mountain bath bomb (xl) Dear Santa wash card sheet Heavenilli massage bar Life’s a Beach showder Vanillary Brûlée candle Vanillary perfume Vanilla Fountain bath bomb Vanilla Puff dusting powder Vanillary body spray Vanilla in the Mist soap
Lush Times Summer 2008: When Mo brings a new Bath Ballistic to a Lush creative team meeting, she gets a bowl full of warm water, drops it in, then hands it around the room for everyone to smell. With the Vanilla Fountain, no-one wanted to let go of the bowl and pass it on. Without doubt, this little Ballistic is going to sell out in minutes. Simon Constantine made the comforting vanilla scent with natural vanilla absolute – the posh stuff made from vanilla pods – with a touch of restful sandalwood and a note of burnt caramel. It was inspired by the extraordinary deserts at Heston Blumental’s amazing restaurant, The Fat Duck at Bray (www.fatduck.co.uk).
Lush ‘Mrs Whippy’ bath bomb. Up for the vote for the Jan 2021 Lush Kitchen subscription box.
This was made in the late 2000’s for Valentine’s day, only in the Uk.
It’s fruity in a slight berryish way because of the currant, then it’s got fruity buchu oil, and vanilla like tonka bean. It’s a slow melting fizzier that is creamy.
When Mark Constantine flew me to the Uk the first time i walked past a sweet shop and the hand written sign said ‘Mr and Mrs Whippy’ and i was so excited that i took a video of it 😀
I’ve got a tub demo of it on my lushalot youtube channel and also on my lushalot instagram.
Lush description Lush Times: With her husband off making ice creams, Mrs Whippy needed something to do, didn’t she? Jack Constantine created this one for his wife; he wanted a soothing, creamy bath that would relax her and leave her skin as soft as a vegan alternative to silk.
Lush’ bomb. i would rate this a 4 out of 5 rating. Originally made in 2002.
Has the Lush “Karma’ fragrance
I have a bath demo on my Lushalot youtube channel. It makes a bright green water. It’s a fast fizzer, fizzing wildly in the tub releasing its strong karma fragrance.
I liked this colorful Karma scented ballistic. It’s green and yellow because Lush thought it would be good to have a bath bomb in the same colors as the Lush logo was originally. It made a lovely bright yellow-green color in the water.
2002 Lush North America Lush Times description: There are only a few carefully chosen products to which we give the name ‘Lush’. The Lush Bath Bomb is the only one currently available; we named it because it encapsulates Lushness. It is green and yellow like a logo (with a little logo ribbon in case you hadn’t noticed) and it smells of our Karma perfume, which is pretty much what our shops smell like.
Lush ‘The Godmother’ soap. Originally made in 2008. It’s made in the Lush Candy Fluff scent, along with melting marshmallow moments bath melt and others in this scent family.
It’s a beautiful rose pink soap with pinkish blue glitter. It’s scent is nice and strong. Kind of a pink but spicy clove scent. Along the lines of Creamy Candy but brighter and a wee bit spicier.
I’d rate it a 4 The Godmother is not exceptionally drying to my hands nor is it moisturizing , but somewhere in the middle. I was surprised at how low lathering this soap was. The Godmother soap is palm oil free, so there is not as much lather as the prevously made Lush soaps which had palm oil in them. The scent stays on my hands for a goodly while. I did notice that the Godmother lather was different. No lather, more creamy.
Lush 2008 description Despite our Ballistics, skincare, haircare and all other wonderful things for our baths showers and bodies, people tend to call Lush “That soap shop”. This is fair, because we do make exceedingly good soaps. We looked into this (technically Pia looked into it and we were all very interested) and found that 68% of people in the UK wash their hands with washing up liquid. Thats just not right. Its not good for your hands. Stop it! Mo, our soap supreme, has made this special soap (scented with our best selling Snow Fairy scent) for keeping by the kitchen sink. Think of it as your fairy godmother for the hands.
@lush ‘Happy Blooming’ shower jelly. Up for the vote for the Jan 2021 subscription box.
On one of my photos if you swipe left will show you what i think of this jelly. 😂 It’s so good i bought a bunch when they were being sold in the first incarnation of the Lush Kitchen in 2015.
This was made only by Lush UK and was never sold to the public.
It smells like cherries. It’s SO. DAMN. GOOD. I have a youtube video demo of it close up at the sink where i slice it and wash with it.
Some folks think it’s too sickly sweet or fake smelling. While it’s certainly strong it’s not a fake scent to me because it’s loaded with real cherries. And it also contains coconut. I usually don’t like very sweet things from Lush, but in the case of Happy Blooming it seems to be beyond my control because my mouth actually starts watering when I smell it. In my opinion, the jelly and the lotion are stronger in scent moreso than the bath oil melt & the solid fragrance are.
I would rate this a 6 out of 5 rating if i could. 😄
I took a couple of photos of the scent family years ago. The very first product made was the bath melt, in 2011, which has raised cherries on it. The bath melt is huge and you can break four pieces of it.
@lush Karma shower gel.
Up for the vote for the Jan 2021 subscription box
The scent reminds me of hippies from the 60’s and 70’s. Lush used to advertise it that way as well. 😀
I have a close up sink demo of this on my lushalot youtube channel showing how it lathers.
Ingredients: Sodium Laureth Sulfate,Perfume, Patchouli Oil, Orange Oil, Lavendin Oil, Pine Oil, Lemongrass Oil, Elemi Oil, Gardenia Extract.
This is a shower gel with the Lush “Karma” scent of orange, patchouli and pine. Karma shower gel is a much better way to get the Karma scent on your bod than say, the soap. It’s also possible to wash your hair with it or even use it as a bath foam. It’s easier to lather than the Karma soap. It’s thick and gelatenous. A little goes a long way on a shower pouff, vs. the soap gets smaller and disappears much quicker oz for oz. It also makes great bubbles in the tub. The lovely Karma fragrance stays on the skin long too! 😀
I’d rate this a 5 out of 5.
This is another HUGE scent family, having more than 15 products. I’ll add the washcloud (a non edible cotton candy type of product) on my @lushexclusives page with more info 😉
Lush ‘Heavenly Bodies’ buttercream. Up for the vote for the Jan 2021 box. All pictures here are of the buttercream including the in store desert-like tower with chocolate shavings on it.
Butter Creams Creamy Cakes of Glycerine Soap made in huge buckets and hand-rolled in petals, chocolate, cocoa butter and other unexpected ‘packaging’, our butter creams look like huge helpings of luxury dessert. At room temperature they start out smooth, soft and slippery, but if you’re the sensation-seeking type you can choose to chill or freeze them to turn them into blocks of invigoratingly refreshing shower soap.
My youtube a video where i demo & review heavenly bodies.
I’d rate it a 4 out of 5
Ingredients: Water, Glycerine, Rhassoul Mud, Jojoba Oil, Cocoa Butter, Perfume, Tangerine Oil, Sweet Orange Oil, Vanilla Absolute, Cocoa Butter. old price 7.0 oz $14.40 Heavenly Bodies – 3.5 oz $7.20
Ohhh, there’s nothing better than smearing your favorite foody combo (orange and chocolate) all over yourself in the bath, and having it be less drying than soap. It’s a firm buttercream. I love the Sonic Death Monkey scent of this Heavenly Bodies buttercream. I do believe this choclate dipped orange scent is my favorite.
Lush description: Want a body like an angel? Got a body like a zombie? Revive your skin with a muddy mixture of chocolate, cocoa butter, refreshing orange juice, anti-microbial Rhassoul mud and stimulating tangerine oils. We scent each chunk of Heavenly Bodies Butter Cream with vanilla absolute, cocoa absolute (yes, you really can get natural chocolate perfume), tangerine and sweet orange so it smells rather like a chocolate orange cheesecake but it does taste like soap. For the best effect smooth it all over the outside of your body. You’ll smell like an angel and your skin will feel as soft as gossamer.
Scent Family: Sonic Death Monkey Shower Gel; Chocolate Whipstick Lip Balm
Lush ‘American Cream’ body lotion. I’ll put my demo video link of it in my profile here.
It’s up for the vote for the Jan 2021 subscription box, along with nine other discontinued products.
First off-even though American Cream is advertised as having strawberry in it-it doesn’t smell like strawberry. American Cream is a vanilla based scent which is akin to a vanilla milkshake, which is where the name comes from. also has clary sage, and lavender as its scent components, adding an herbal note. The other American Cream products have strawberry in them…but….American Cream products do not smell like strawberry. It’s made with strawberry, it’s not strawberry scented. I like to make that clear, so that people won’t spend their hard earned money on something that they think will be strawberry scented, only to be disappointed when it’s not.
The body lotion is a thinner consistency. It’s nice. I’m kind of jaded because i’ve seen Lush offer this MANY times over the last 15 years. So to me it’s not exclusive. There’s kind of an inside joke amongst old skool Lushies-‘Oh there’s the exclusive American Cream body lotion again.’ It used to be much thicker. It’s nice, not the best Lush lotion and certainly not the worst. i’d give it a 3 out of 5 rating.
The scent family of products is HUGE. The very first Lush product with this scent is called ‘Shimmy Shimmy’ iridescent massage bar. I show most of the products (not all) in a photo i took that i’ve attached here on this post.
This has a slight smell of maple. The taste is alright, very light taste of maple. Nice consistency.
Ingredients: Extra Virgin Coconut oil, Maple Syrup, Japan Wax, Shea Butter, Illipe Butter, Carnauba Wax, Flavour, Glycerine *Occurs naturally in essential oils
Lush Times: We’ve got a special Christmas treat for our Canadian friends with our deliciously tasty Maple Taffy lip balm. Inspired by the tradition of tapping maple sap and making sweet candy treats from it, Helen thought we should create a moisturising balm using real maple syrup. The taste of this balm is unbelievably moreish. Mixed in with the syrup, we’ve added Japan and carnauba waxes with extra virgin coconut oil to form a moisturising layer on the lips and keep them safe from the nip of winter. Maple syrup is a good source of manganese and zinc. The syrup has a very distinctive flavour and there have been many attempts to make a similar synthetic flavour, but we prefer to use the natural maple syrup.
It’s an all white bomb with a large polished sugar crystal on top. It doesn’t make bath art and it’s a fast fizzier. No matter who reviews this bomb, the consensus is that this smells heavenly. 😊 It’s orange and mint, which is a rare combination for Lush. It’s also slightly sweet. I love the scent.
Here’s a video of it from Comfortinscents on instagram
Lush Times Xmas 2008: Astonishingly refreshing, head-clearing beauty! You might be tempted by the bright colours of the other Lush Ballistics, but promise us that you won’t miss out on the new Snowdrops bath. If the big sugar crystals don’t tempt you, and the iridescent sparkles aren’t your bag please take one home ewith you all the same. Drop it in the bath and your life will change for the better. Drop it in the bath and your life will change for the better. take the head clearing, reviving citrus scents of mandarin and grapefruit, then add a genius dash of peppermint and you have the most amazing, life affirming Ballistic ever to sneak up on you and give you the slap in the face that you need (metaphorically speaking of course). Once a Snowdrops bomb has woken you up in the morning, you will need to buy more. But no! These are seasonal specials! Buy a big airtight container and stock up on as many as you can carry – that’s if we haven’t got there first and bought them all.
This is a super large bubble bar. It’s like two or three regular Lush bubble bars. It smells just like the Lush Snow Fairy shower gel. Like pink buttery candy. Recently Lush has added lime oil to Snow Fairy to lend some acidic quality to the sweet vanilla scent.
It’s got white shimmer on the outside of the bar. I used half in my bath.
This is a bubble bar in the same design of the popular ‘Brightside’, ‘The Comforter’, Blue Skies & Fluffy White Clouds’. Only this one is bright pink! And it has the popular ‘Snow Fairy’ shower gel scent.
Here are some other Snow Fairy Lush products from past Christmases. If you’ve tried any one of these you know what this bubble bar will smell like.
I’ve tried two other exclusive Lush body milks and have recorded up close demos of the body milks below, so you can see how these body milks are.
When i buy my Christmas products and they’re delivered- i’ll write my reviews, post my tub bath water photos and video demo here for you. 😊
I’ve bought and used the exclusive Lush Yog Nog body lotion (in my group photo below) and it was too much for me. Too greasy. So i was wary about this yog nog body milk. But this sinks in so much better. And it leaves you feel moisturized but not greasy. And it smells delicious!
I took a photo of all the Lush Yog Nog products made throughout the years. If you’ve had one of these you know how this body milk will smell like.
heres a video of me showing up close a couple of Lush body milks.
