The Sicilian

Lush ‘The Sicilian’ bath bomb.
Made in the early 2000’s. Discontinued about four years later.

this is one of five products here that are up for the vote for the August 2021 Lush subscription box.

This bath bomb was always a staple for me, and probably becuase my favorite smell is the smell of fresh peeled oranges.

Its a fast fizzing bomb not a slow melting creamy one. no bath art. no glitter.

This is made with four different orange ingredients: Mandarin, Orange, Neroli, and Tangerine.
It also has marigold flower petals mixed in and an orange slice.

The reference comes from the book/movie ‘The Godfather’ which is about a mafia boss from Sicily (and one of my favorite movies). In it the director has something about oranges in every killing scene. 😊

Lusg made asoap called Sunny Citrus which is in the same scent.

Lush 2005 Description: Why Sicilian? Well, we named it thus because of the organic Sicilian oranges we slice up and put inside each one and because its sunny colour and refreshing citrus scent remind us of the fruit trees in Sicily’s fertile valleys. We pack it with refreshing, uplifting orange, tangerine and mandarin oils to make us feel almost as good as if we were tootling around on a Vespa with the warm wind messing up our hairdo.

LT 2004: The Sicilian is a bath for brightening up dull days;even sunny days can appear dull when there’s nothing exciting to look forward to. If you know your’re going to spend all day in meetings, or in a room with no daylight or haivng tea with yoru dullest relative thake a Sicilian bath first. The reviving essential oils, made from Sicilian oranges, mandarins, tangerines and orange flowers will cheer you up so much you might actually find you enjoy yourself! Share citrus Sicilians with your co-workers and relatives and all your days will be summer.
