Soon I’ll record a video of my bottle from my photo which has only a drop left.
Lush made the very first ‘forum member only special perfumes’ in 2005.
This first round of perfumes were voted on by us, the Lush International customer forum members.
Lush’s head of manufacturing at that time, Hilary Jones, along with the owner and creator Mark Constantine, asked us; “If you could have a perfume made from any current product we have what would it be?”
She said “write them down, l tally them and then we’ll make the most popular six perfumes.”
The first was ‘Amandopondo’. It was made from the rose, lemon and orange combination of a popular bubble bar sold at the time called ‘Amandopondo‘ bubble bar that was sold in all lush stores from 1999-2014. The bars name had a deep meaning it for the owners.
So naturally I bought one of each of those first six perfumes. I took a photo of it way back then so that I could start the first Lush blog 🙂
Review/Description: This shower gel was made at the suggestion of our forum member Athena8867. She suggested this scent of a Plumeria based shower gel and as Hilary is an extra super special human, she made a bit just for Athena. I’m honored to be able to try this and so I am going to describe this gel, show it, etc to the best of my ability for Athena. 😀
Lush description: Athena’s Aloha gel is a rich conditioning gel along the lines of Skinny Dip in texture (thinner) and creaminess (oh so creamy). The shower gel has the light, fresh and beatufiul scent of Plumeria blooms. Plumeria flowers (and sometimes Pikaki blooms and Lehua blooms) have been used in Hawaii for centuries as a component of the Lei, which is a wreath of flowers that is draped around the neck presented upon arriving or leaving Hawaii as a symbol of affection. The shower gel leaves behind a light, soft scent of Plumeria flowers. This scent isn’t a heady/strong/winter floral like Chelsea Gardens or Sex Bomb. Plumeria flowers are more of a Spring/Summer fresh floral scent but with a lightly sweet, creamy note to it. Absolutely beautiful.
Ingredients: Sodium Bicarbonate, Citric Acid, Perfume, Lily Head Infusion (Lilium candidum) , Jasmine Absolute (Jasminum officinale) , Ylang Ylang Oil (Cananga odorata) , Neroli Oil. .
* Occurs naturally in essential oils
Review: This is a ballistic made for forum members only for one day, in the “Lily Savon”soap or “Ghost” Lush scent. Plain and simple, it’s lovely. It’s heaven on a stick. I love all the Lily Savon family of products, Ghost shower gel, Lily perfume and this ballistic. I use all of these alot lately.
