Temple of the Sky

5 out of 5 rating, for looks and scent.

See my 3 minute tub Demo Video below.

In addition to the new ‘‘Flight’ bath bomn, here is a review and a couple of shots of Lush ‘Temple of the Sky’ bath bomb, exclusive to the @lushjapan store in Harajuku and on the Uk website. Smells like oranges. Its made with lon and orange oil.

This is one of two favorites of mine out of the latest six new Japan/Uk Lush bath bombs. The other four dont have quite the oomph Temple of the Sky and Flight have in my opinion.

Finalky a decent orange Lush scent. The orange in this is nice and strong and lasts the wjole bath. Thats another thing about this Temple in the Sky bomb….it fizzes for a long luxurious time.

Lush Bath cocktail

I wanted to go for a red and purple color scheme. Seey 6 minute tub video below.

As i searched my lush collection i saw some thungs that fit the bill but noticed they all had geranium in common. I decided to use them:

1 new exclusive Lush ‘Ladybird’ bubble bar.

1 new exclusive Lush ‘Roller’ bath bomb.

1 squeeze of some Lush ‘Yummy Mummy’ shower cream (same scent as roller).

1 squeeze of some new Lush ‘Prince Charming’ shower gel.

The roller has a strawberry, caramely tonka, orange, and geranium scent.

The Ladybird bubble bar has a mint and geranium scent. Minty floral.

The shower gel has a geranium, pomegranate fruit, rose and marshmallow root scent

The Yummy Mummy has the same strawberry, orange,.caramelly tonka and geranium scent as Roller bomb.

I chopped up the bubble bar for the asmr people and also to get it to a fine consistency so it would dissolve in the seieve without me touching it…even though sometimes i like squishing it up in my hand.

I added the squeeze of each shower gel on top of the chopped up bubble bar in the seieve.

I added the bubble bar mixture first to see what color it made the water once it was dussolved for bubbles.

The water was a reddish orange.

Then i added the Roller bath bomb. Roller is my favorite Lush bath bomb of all time

You can see why i like this bath bomb in my pics below 😊

Soon the bath bomb dissolved and the purple water mixed with the red water and became a dark purple water with sparkles.

I woukd definitely recommend this combination of Lush products for a colorful and delicous smelling bath.

Sunnyside Up

Coconut, pineapple, orange, vetivert

We like our eggs sweet, foamy and vegan. Brazilian orange oil and vetivert oil make a cracking combination and will have you dreaming of being in a candy store filling a paper bag with fried egg gummy candies. Let this sudsy version wobble over your body in the shower and feel the refreshing, toning and brightening effects of fresh pineapple infusion. If ever there was a shower jelly that smelled good enough to eat, it’s this one.

Sunnyside Up jelly

Don’t leave yourself scrambling for a good shower. Lather up with this sunshine-filled jelly. It’s no yolk, this cheery little egg is packed with a cracking mix of soothing coconut infusion, enzymic pineapple and softening carrageenan extract – a recipe for truly sumptuous skin. Top it all off with a blend of uplifting orange and vetivert for a clucking good shower.

Benefits:
– With a soft, tropical scent, fresh coconut infusion soothes and moisturises skin leaving it soft and supple.
– Fresh pineapple infusion is bright and enzymic, great for stimulating skin and giving it a revitalised glow.
– Carrageenan is a seaweed extract that gives this product it’s unique jelly texture, and is super softening for your skin.

How to use: Keep it whole, and lather onto wet skin to create a rich foam that will clean and leave you feeling fresh and bright.

Knockout

4 out of 5 rating

See my 2 minute Tub Demo below

This bright red bubble bar is a reusable style. After using it i would say one could get 2-3 baths from it.

The Lush site doesnt say it but its made with cinnamon and mint, in the same scent as Lush ‘Wiccy Magic Muscles’ massage bar. So its warming with the cinnamon and cooling with the mint at the same time. Its good to use if youve got sore muscles.

It makes lots of bubbles and dark pink water. It has no glitter. The cinnamon and mint scents is medium strong. Its not too weak and not too strong, its just right.

Be careful where you put this after you use it because the red color will have to be rinsed off.

There is a bit of cocoa butter mixture at one end of it.

“This vibrant bubble bar sure packs a perfumed punch! If you’re in need of a pick-me-up or something soothing post-battle, get in the ring (or bath) with this spicy, muscle-soothing bubble bar to get back to your best.”

I like this bar and wod recommend it.

Benefits:
– Epsom salt has a plethora of restorative benefits, from relaxing your mind to soothing physical pain in your muscles.
– Cinnamon leaf oil stimulates blood circulation to soothe sore muscles and help your skin glow.
– Enlivening peppermint oil refreshes and cleanses.

How to use: Hold under running water for mounds of spiced bubbles and powerfully pink water. When you’ve whipped up enough bubbles, pop on the side to dry for next time.

How to store: Store in a cool, dry place until you’re ready to use. Between uses, keep in a soap dish ready for the next round.

Flight

A Lush Harajuku bath bomb Made with the Yummy Mummy scent.

5 out of 5 rating.

See my 4 minute Tub Demo Video below.

Its the same scent as Lush ‘Yummy Mummy’ shower gel and ‘Roller’ bath bomb and body sprayit smells like sweet strawberry and oranges. See below for more ingredients.

I think the bath art this makes is some of the most stunning that Lush has ever made in a bath bomb. Purple, blue, green, yellow….WoW.

It also has light blue colored glitter which is rare to see in a lush bomb if you think about it.

It has little shiny pieces of red salt embedded into the top.

It ultimately creates a cobalt blue water.

Gorgeous!

Lush Exclusive Perfume Library fragrance reviews

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 poet in 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 Plato describes 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.

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

QI: DRF Alcohol, Perfume, Alpha-Isomethyl ionone, Water (Aqua), Glycerine, Geraniol, Rose Oil (Rosa damascena), Violet Leaf Absolute (Viola odorata), Sandalwood Oil (Santalum austro-caledonicum vieill), *Benzyl Alcohol, *Benzyl Benzoate, *Benzyl Cinnamate, *Cinnamal, *Citral, *Citronellol, *Eugenol, *Farnesol, *Limonene, *Linalool

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.

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.

Sweet. Floral

Frangipani                                €90/£70 for 100ml

Frangipani is thought to refer to a 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 to our solid hand serum –  Frangipani glove.

Ingredients: Frangipani absolute, Sandalwood oil, Almond Oil, Tuberose absolute, Guaiacwood Oil.

QI: DRF Alcohol, Perfume, Water (Aqua), Glycerine, Benzyl Alcohol, *Limonene, Benzyl Benzoate, *Linalool, Guiacwood Oil (Bulnesis sarmienti), Sandalwood Oil (Santalum austro-caledonicum vieill), Almond Essential Oil (Prunus amygdalus amara), Frangipani Absolute (Plumeria alba), Tuberose Absolute (Polianthes Tuberosa), *Benzyl Salicylate, Butylphenyl Methylpropional, Cinnamyl Alcohol, *Citral, Coumarin, *Eugenol, *Farnesol, Geraniol

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)

Frangipani

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.

Sweet, floral

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. 

Ingredients, Bergamot, Neroli, Petitgrain

QI: DRF Alcohol, Bergamot Oil (Citrus aurantium bergamia), *Limonene, Perfume, Neroli Oil (Citrus aurantium amara), Water (Aqua), *Linalool, Glycerine, Petitgrain Oil (Citrus aurantium amara), *Citral, *Coumarin, *Farnesol, *Geraniol, Isoeugenol

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.

Citrusy, fresh

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.
