It’s the liquid form that came before the solid purple bathos bar which Lush sold in their stores for 15 years.
Lush Times: Bathos is the bath foam for those candle-lit champagne swilling occasions when you feel like sharing the warm water with someone you’re fond of. It is a deep violet bath which smells deeply of violets with hints of soothing rose, calming jasmine, refreshing bergamot, rejuvenating sandalwood and cheering cassie, all of which are traditionally known in their native countries for their aphrodisiac qualities. Don’t say we didn’t warn you.
Review: The original was called Bathos liquid bubble bath. It’s the same fragrance as the more current purple “Bathos” bubble bar but this Bathos bath foam is in liquid form and it’s green in color. It makes pretty good bubbles but I still think the solid bubble bars make more bubbles. It left the same lovely violet leaf and clove oil scent on my skin as the hard bubble bar. That’s one thing about Bathos, it’s not a light weight in the scent department, and the bath foam is no exception. I’m glad lush re-made this for us.
Sink into the lilac-hued waters of this floral classic. Posies of violet and spicy clove fragrance and soften your skin. The Ancient Greeks used violets in love potions and considered it a symbol of fertility and love – why not be seduced by this sweet, purple bath?
Before this bubble bar existed there was a liquid bubbke bath called Bathos which had the same scent as the bubble bar that came later but the liquid one was dark green. And before that they had a bath bomb called Bathosphere around 1999 or so which was green and had the same scent.
You’ll love this if you like:
– Swirly purple-hued baths that smell like violet flavoured sweets.
– The scent of Daddy-O shampoo, Sugar Daddy-O solid conditioner, or Kerbside Violet perfume. – Taking time to appreciate the small, fleeting moments in life.
– Violet leaf has anti-inflammatory and antiseptic effects on the skin.
– The scent of violets help to settle your mood and mind, aiding restful sleep.
– Ylang ylang oil helps to reassure and uplift, leaving you feeling happy and carefree.
How to use: Crumble under running water to fill your bath with purple rain and fluffy white bubbles. How to store: Keep in a cool, dry place to keep this potent bubble bar ultra-violet.
The classic spicy “Bathos” bubble bar gives great looking, deep purple water. It has the strong scent of sweet violets and spicy cloves. Barthes is VERY fragrant. There’s also a teeny bit of dark green glitter on the top. This bubble bar can stand alone without being combined with anything, however, if one wanted a violet theme you could use a violety “Ne Worry Pas” ballistic, wash my hair with the violet smelling “Daddyo”, rub some “Choco La La” massage bar on, and condition my hair with “Retread”.
Lush has made a liquid Bathos bubble bath in the past. It’s green. I’ll add that to my blog tomorrow.
Sometimes I like to go the “all purple” route, too and have Bathos with a Lush Jingle Spells bath bomb or a Lush Blackberry Bomb.
Lush Times 2006 Description: If you prefer to keep your bath to yourself and wouldn’t dream of allowing anyone else anywhere near the bathroom when you’re in there naked, please don’t allow the following suggestion to detract from your enjoyment of a bubbly, mauve Bathos bath. If you prefer to share your bath for reasons of ecological soundness or just plain fun, then Bathos is absolutely ideal! We make it with some of most sensual, relaxing essential oils on the planet, including lots of violet leaf which is reputed to help people remember why they got together in the first place. Don’t put one of these in the bath in the morning on a workday. Save it for later.
This was the first producct that Lush had made with the “Bathos” fragrance. Violet and clove. It was green. Years later Lush made a green liquid “Bathos” bubble bath. A couple of years later Lush made the purple bubble bar called “Bathos”.
No picture but Bathospere was a green ballistic.
1998 This was a Lush ballistic that was made because of a user contest in which each person submitted a “colour therapy” ballistic idea. Bathosphere won, so did Waving Not Drowning. I believe this was a violet ballistic. (Bathos-sphere)
