Ingredients: Sodium Bicarbonate, Citric Acid, Sea Salt (Sodium Chloride), Perfume, Jasmine Absolute (Jasminum officinale), Ylang Ylang Oil (Cananga odorata), Cypress Oil (Cupressus sempervirens), Palmarossa Oil (Cymbopogan martini), Gardenia Extract (Gardenia jasminoides), Red Golden Glitter (Polyethylene terephthalate, FD&C Yellow No. 5, D&C Red No. 7, FD&C Red No. 4), FD&C Red No. 4
This has scent of Flying Fox shower gel. Lots of honeysuckle, ylang ylang and not too noticeable jasmine. It’s similar to the Lush ‘Lust’ perfume. I don’t like the scent whatsoever , *raises right hand* I cannot finish a bath with this. I’ve tried it twice just to make sure. I usually try things at least three times, but no can do. It’s apity because visually, it’s strikingly gorgeous. The Youki Hi from the UK especially, are covered (on the outside only) with a bunch of golden glitter, and dark red salt. I don’t like Flying Fox shower gel either, and this ballistic was made to have the same exact scent as flying Fox shower gel.
LT description: Our Chinese New Year celebration Ballistic is named after one of the world’s three most beautiful women ever, a Chinese woman called Youki-Hi, according to Japanese tradition. It as Yuka’s idea; she works for Lush in Japan. It has the gloriously sensual, jasmine flower fragrance of Flying Fox and is regally decorated with gold sparkles and red sea salt – that’s sea salt dyed red not salt from the Red Sea in the colours of Chinese dragons which dance along the street for new year parades. The other two most beautiful women, so legend has it, were Cleopatra and Onono Komachi, a Japanese storyteller. Perhaps one day they will have their own commemorative Bath Ballistics too. (It’s pronounced ‘you-key-hee’ not ‘you-key-high’ except by Mark.)
The fragrance is a sexy floral. It’s made with jasmine, clary sage and gland gland. it’s floral but not sweet. very popular. Lush sells the sex bomb bath bomb as a regular year round item. It’s nice to have a bubble bar to go with the bath bomb in a bath.
The dark purple bath melt part made my skin SO soft, without being overly conditioning or greasy.
Initially the water became a pinkish red with just the bubble bar, and then when i added the boots part the water became a gorgeous purple.
Lush Times: Sweet delicious Vanilla Fountain fragrance – tonka bean, jasmine and heaps of vanilla absolute. At the time of writing, we’ve not had the chance to put this to a real live test; we’ve used it on our arms in the creative team meeting, sniffed it with enthusiasm and longing, but as yet, we haven’t been able to take them home with us, smooth them all over our lovers’ bodies to see what happens next. Heavanilly’s melty butters smell of sensual jasmine, vanilla and tonka – and cinder toffee – so we can guess.
I love this massage bar. Out of the 60 or so different Lush massage bars, Heavanilli is one of my favorites. Its made in the Lush ‘Vanillary’ perfume fragrance. Lush has made many products with this popular perfume scent.
I would recommend it. I enjoy using it and Its one that i would buy again and again.
“For a limited time only, 30ml bottles of this perfume will be available to order online. This perfume and the rest of The Florence Collection are also available in 100ml bottles in your nearest perfume library.”
Sappho is one of five perfumes which are only sold at the Florence, Italy Perfume Library store. But Lush Uk has them temporarily on their retail site uk.lush.com
I happened to be on the site looking at the mothets day producys and saw them there!
I wanted to like Sappho so much. I bought it because the ingredients vanilla, jasmine, sandalwood, tonka, orris, tobacco and anise seemed perfect.
You’ll love this if you like: – Powdery vanilla scents. – Vanillary perfume. – Sunny sapphic sensuality on a Greek island.
But when i spray it on, it smells great for a minute then these note come through thats like licorice, jaine and tobacco and this overrides the lovely vanilla quality.
If the licorice-y note wasnt there it would be so good, but unfortunately it burns my nose, just turns strange and is way too strong with my body chemistry. The part thats left over loooonngg after its dried down hours later is aactually kind of nice
actually kind of nicely soft and vanilla like, but it takes literally hours to become this nice scent. I think Lush shpuld take the anise out of it.
“Fell in love with a girl?
Bittersweet and inescapable, this ode to a striking poetess, the Tenth Muse, will shake your senses. Classical orris entwines with carnal jasmine to enchant deep desires.”
See my 3 minute youtube tub demo, and description video below.
This packaging-free bubble bath contains coarse and fine sea salt to cleanse the skin and wash away the deep blues. A heady fragrance of jasmine absolute and ylang ylang oil float up to greet you, so you can sail away on thoughts of crystal clear oceans.
It’s made with Jasmine and Ylang Ylang florals, and per Lush is the same scent as: Christmas Eve bubble bar, Northern Lights bath bomb, Santa fun bar, Perfrct Match bubble bar and ‘Dragon Legend’ bubble bar.
You’ll love this if you like:
– Rich fragrances which evoke a sense of mental wellbeing.
– Sleepy naked shower gel, Goddess bath bomb, or Tender Is The Night massage bar. – Long soaks in the sea.
– Ylang ylang is thought to reduce anxiety.
– This plastic-free bubble bar means you can enjoy luxury bathing guilt-free.
– Jasmine flowers are picked at sunrise when they’re at their most fragrant, resulting in a powerful floral aroma.
How to use:
Crumble half of this bubble bar underneath a running tap and create a whirlpool with your hands for deep bubbles. Pop the other half away to use another bathtime.
How to store:
Store in a cool dry place until you’re ready to make waves.
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.
5 out of 5 rating. Vanilla, Jasmine, Lemongrass, Rose.
In the above picture I show the current Lush 2021 “Keep It Fluffy bubble bottle’ solid bubble bar, made in the same scent as the perfume.
Lush used to haver a sister company called “B Never Too Busy To Be Beautiful’ in the mid 2000’s in England. They made bath and beauty products like the current lush that were a bit more upscale. They also made or remade many things that they used to sell when they were called “Cosmetics To Go’. Lush made 10 different perfumes at this boutique, along with bath and beauty products the same fragrances as the perfumes. One of the ten perfumes were called “Keep It Fluffy”.
In the above and below photos I show the different bottles that Lush/B Never made this perfume in.
I tried pretty much everything at the b Never boutique, being that the lush UK site had a tab to order online from B Never, and delivered it to those of us customers who lived in the United states. And while I tried everything there and I liked much of it, Keep It Fluffy was one of my favorites. I Like rose. I always have.
Keep It Fluffy is a soft, pretty scent that is fresh nd clean but also floral. It’s not too sweet. Not too rosy, not too jasmine. It’s just right. This scent is like the younger sister to Lush “Fever” perfume, which is another one of my favorite perfumes from Lush..
This was one of my favorites at the B Never boutique. I order everything in this scent. Lush description: The Doris Day off bubble bars. Lie back and dream of old school glamour. Powdery vanilla and uplifting lemongrass pair perfectly to create a pretty scent. Sensual and Heady Jasmine takes you from day into sultry nights. Soothing, powdery vanilla leaves you feeling comforted and warm.
Here is a 4 minute video I made for you describing this fragrance.
This is one of six exclusive shower gels that Lush.co.uk made ‘just because’ from community favorite bath bombs
Honestly, This is the shower gel i was the least excited about. Ive seen sex bomb in one form or another for 17 years. *yawn*
However, i was in for a surprise when i used this for the first time.
Firstly, it has this quite unexpected pink shimmer to it. SO pretty. The bath bomb that this shower gel was named after doesnt have any glitter nor shimmer so this was a pleasant surprise. its not glitter like in Intergalactic shower gel, this is *shimmer*, more subtle than glitter. Beautiful. I just keep gazing at it in the light.
Secondly, the scent isn’t as complex as rhe bsth bomb scent. That said-this is what i could call a classically ‘pretty’ scent. Its feminine and floral. Having rose, and jasmine florals. The herbaceousness of the sage is kind of missing, and the ylang ylang isnt coming across at all to me but….i dont care because this floral shower gel scent has great ‘throw’. Its not a sweet scent. Just floral.
And more importantly two hours after my shower im getting compliments about how i smell at the grocery store, and from my husband. He said it smells sexy.
This is a gorgeous new soap for Christmas made in the Lush ‘Sex Bomb’ scent. The scent is made with jasmine, rose, clary sage, synthetic musk. this soap adds lingonberry to the mix however.
I took some video footage of it at the creative showcase
Lush gas made many products with this same scent. I took a photo below of them all, except one is missing. Anyway this is a floral scent. If you like flowers and other floral scents you would like this NPBLTTO soap.
One thing that i like about it is that the sexy scent stays on the skin even after rinsing, drying off. Hours later i get a slight whiff of it’s sexy perfume.
Its not sweet, its smells mostly like rose and clary sage to my nose, but each persons nose can pick out different notes as primary.
The scent was made to be sexy, and that it is.
I like that we can choose yellow or green. The large soap inthe shops looks aaesome, i took a photo of the North Polar Bear soap at the Lush Creative Showcase.
The product missing from my scent family photos below is ‘Sex n the Shower’ emotibomb.
Lush Description: My Dear Children,
It has been such a long time since I last wrote to you, I hope you are all doing well. Things at the North Pole have been a bit hectic again. We have had a few fairly peaceful years but I should have known that wouldn’t last. You remember my dear friend North Polar Bear and the mischief he would get up to? Well, he has gone and done something silly again. I’m getting too old for these things now.
I was taking a bath, usually it is North Polar Bear who takes baths but even I like them sometimes, as it had been a very busy and tiring week and my bones creak a little now you see and I find that the hot water helps immensely. I was soaking happily (my favourite soap is made with jasmine absolute and ylang ylang oil as it makes me feel happy and even Father Christmas deserves some floral sometimes), when all of a sudden a roaring, rushing sound surrounded my house and the sky lit up like a bonfire! I leapt from the bath in a such a hurry that I splashed the lingonberry infused water all over the floor and dashed out of the bathroom, nearly forgetting my towel in my haste!
As I went outside, it looked like the sky had been set on fire with swirling colours of blue and green and yellow and red and I knew just what had happened. North Polar Bear had left the tap on for the Northern Lights and let two years out in one go! He says it was an accident but I think he just wanted to cause a bit of mischief for old times’ sake. It’s set to be another couple of dark Christmases for us here at the North Pole thanks to him, but the candlelight is quite charming and comfortable really so I don’t mind too much. I rather missed his antics.
I hope you are doing very well. Sending my love to you all.
Yours always, Father Nicholas Christmas
it smells similar to one of my favorite Lush products ever called ‘Fever’.
desert Date is made with jasmine, sandalwood and rose.
photo below courtesy of @Lushiezzz on Instagram
this is to exfoliate and moisturize in one bar. Much like lush ‘rub rub rub’ or ‘rough with the smooth’ bar, this is made with cocoa butter and illipe butter.
here’s a photo i took of mine below
The scent is a bold floral with a slightly Woody undertone. If you’re familiar with the Lush ‘Fever’ massage bar, ‘Fever’ perfume, or the ‘mirror mirror neck cream then you’ll recognize the sexy scent.
see my video of six of these new shower oils below.
Vertical Abhyanga is made with the same fragrance ingredients as their ‘Soft Touch’ body butter bar. The Soft Touch has always been one of my desert island lush product so I’m ecstatic that Lush made something else in this HEAVENLY sweet, spiced cardamom scent. Oh. My. God.
I’ll be recording a demo & review video of mine in the next week April 16-20.
Review: Sex Bomb one is good for people who find it hard to get excited about any of the ballistics. It smells of tart-y perfume and the colors are vivid purple and bright pink mixing to a beautiful rose coral color. The little rice paper rose still makes me play with it everytime.
Tip: Take the rice paper out after about 45-60 seconds after it starts to “grow” and toss out, otherwise it might become the jellyfish looking slime rose after a couple of minutes.
Notes: Lush also made “Bada- Bing Bada- Boom” shower jelly in this same scent.
Lush Times description:
A Lush classic, this bath bomb really helps you set the mood for a relaxing, romantic time in the tub thanks to heady jasmine and soothing ylang ylang.
What’s in a name? When it comes to Sex Bomb, we take things pretty seriously. A must for any romantic bath, this sphere of sex appeal contains all of nature’s most potent and seductive ingredients to get you in the mood for a good… soak. Scintillating jasmine, clary sage and ylang ylang are powerful aphrodisiacs, and soy flour softens up your entire body. Indulge in a little luxury with one of our bestselling bath bombs and you’ll be ready for anything.
Other Lush products made in this same scent
Joy of Jelly
Bada Bing Bada Boom
Mum Tulip (Lush made an orange tulip that had the sex bomb scent and another year lush made an orange tulip with a yuzu and cocoa scent).
Lush Times: Our newest scrubber was inspired by the Tchaikovsky ballet. When Helen was inventing, she thought that plum kernel oil would work a treat because it moisturises the skin and makes it feel silky smooth and adds an almondy scent to the product.
Only because i do not like the scent. However, it is quite beautiful, which is why this isn’t a 1 out of 5 rating. .
See my demo video of this in the tub, close up doing it’s thing. It’s lovely movements, twirling gold and red, just like the spinning cloak.
If you just feel like disappearing for a little while, slip into the bath with this seductively relaxing bath oil and cloak yourself in floral jasmine absolute and mood-brightening ylang ylang oil. Before the doorbell rings, the dog barks or the children shout, pulling you out of your calm oasis and back into reality, enjoy nourishing Majorcan almond oil hydration… Who said that!
If you don’t like the 2014 Lush Valentine’s ‘Floating Flower’ bath bomb, you won’t like this one, because they both share their scent. It’s the “Flying Fox’ scent family that this belongs to. I really don’t like the Jasmine scented ‘Flying Fox’. Because i don’t like a lot of jasmine. But loads of people like this one. It’s very pretty.
