It has the scent of ylang ylang flower, patchouli, lemongrass and Ho wood. It smells like an expensive mens cologne or something. I love the scent.
Also, the scent has somestaying power after you use it which i like.
I Would give this a high rating because its really cute, it works well without drying my skin, it smells great and the scent lasts.
Its scent is from another product that Lush made before they called themselves Lush, when they were a company called Cosmetics To Go in the 90’s. The product was called ‘Damp Squid’ and it was a bath bomb.
I still have my old pictures of my Damp Squid bath bomb.
Never made for the public, this has only originally been made in 2006 for uk forum members, and made in the Lush Kitchen a couple of times in 2014 and 2016. Its up for the vote for the September 2021 Lush subscription box.

If you like the Karma scent this jelly will make you happy. Its strong with the classic orange oil, patchouli, lemon grass, and pine scent of Karma.
Its a red orange color with no sparkles. I usually cut some up, put it in a small plastic kitchen seive and hold it under the falling water and it makes tons of karma scented bubbles in the tub.
I added a Karma scent famy (which is one of the biggest scent families) on the last photo, and there are four more newer products missing from the photo already!
4 out of 5 rating for both jellies. See my demo, description and reviews video below.
Since there are 70 products i asked my youtube subscribers and my instagram tv subscribers to choose which products to review next. The majority of folks chose tge jellies first. So im reviewing both silver bells and drummers drumming jellies here.
Silver bells has a new scent. It smells like fresh air, or snow, or fresh sheets. The scent is made with lime oil, orange oil and frankincense (olibanum). Its also got black sesame seed milk in it, which is different and interesting.
Silver Bells has a silver metallic sheen to it, wheras Drummers Drumming is yellow, not gold.
I find this to be more of a milky consistency as you can see in the video. Even so, it makes the same kind of lather that the Drummers Drumming and the Santa’s Belly do.
The scent of Drummers Drumming smells of peach juice. Very few (a handful only) Lush products over the last 20 years have peach juice in it.
I like it, its not too sweet but it does have a natural sweetness to it.
Its east to lather up with both of these jellies. And its easy to rinse off the jellies too. They rinse off clean and leave no kind of sticky residue or anything.
I show in the video how a teeny sliver of either jelly makes Tons of bubbles in the tub too!
This is a new shower jelly, one of five whivh were i troduced at the new Lush Mega store at Lush Liverpool Spa.
This is another wonderful coconut scented Lush shower jelly, but different than the pineapple and coconut ‘Big Calm’ jelly. This Bongo jelly seems even creamier to me when i compare them side by side.
Bongo has a completely different scent than Big Calm. Bongo has mango in it as one of its main ingredients. I can smells the mango. I smell more coconut than mango though. And theres is coconut milk in here.
This Bongo jelly smells even more like coconut! It also seems to be more moisturizing.
You can see the different layers of color in my video below.
“For tropical fun and foam, you just can’t beat Bongo shower jelly! Packed with fresh, cleansing mango juice, and gently moisturising coconut milk, it’s the perfect cocktail of upbeat ingredients. There’s no need to drum it into you, once you’ve tried this sunny, skin softening shower jelly you’ll know there’s no bon-going back. ”
This is such a lovely, calming green scent. Lush doesnt seem to create any new green/natural scents anymore, but this is an exception.
The current perfume called ‘Fresh As’ was made with this scent. it’s beautifully green and fresh with pine and cypress.
I love anything and everything with cypress in it. Alot of my favorite green lush scents have cypress. In Needles and Pines the cypress keeps the whole fragrance from being TOO pine-y if that makes sense.
