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.
Review:Okay. Those who know me know I am a freak about orange, I love orange. So, take that into consideration. Sonic Death Monkey was named after Jack Black’s band in the movie “Hi Fidelity”. God, or the higher power of the universe, is good, because there is such a thing as Sonic Death Monkey shower gel. I can’t believe how good this is. Yes, it smells like Lush’ “Whipstick” lip balm sure, but this is so much better. Oh my, it is a Terry’s chocolate orange, in shower gel form. Yeah, and orange zest, real orange zest. It’s the spicier zest of an orange, with chocolate. As good but different than the discontinued choclatey and ginger shower gel “13 Rabbits“. Lush made “Whipstick” lip balm, and “Heavenly Bodies” buttercream in this same scent.
Lush 2006 Description:There are many chocolate shower gels in the world and most of them, frankly, are horrid. They are nasty, gimmicky, cheap, synthetic things which smell like market stall chocolate Christmas decorations – horrid, as we were saying. For a while we resisted, not wanting to be tarnished by such a tawdry image, then we thought to ourselves, “We can do better than that, much better!” so we did. (Actually Noriko did it.) Oh what gloriously gloopy, sensual stuff Sonic Death Monkey turned out to be. It has seaweed gel make your hair and body feel soft; it’s scented with chocolate orange and tones you up with fresh lime, Caribbean coffee and herbal tea. (It’s named after Barry’s band in High Fidelity.) Cover yourself in chocolate orange and dig that crazy gravy.
