I adore cardamom.  I mean i really like it A LOT, so keep that in mind.

Cardamom and coffee has cardamom, which is a fragrant spice, some of you might recognize it’s lovely scent in Chai tea.

At first spray, it has a absolutely mind-blowing yumminess factor to it.  
Also, this perfume has a lot of throw.

The rose oil in this is not a primary player here.  It adds a lovely but light floral note.  I don’t smell it and say “I smell rose”.

The coffee isn’t primary either.  Right now anyway the cardamom is the most primary, and i couldn’t be happier about that.

Unfortunately, at 30 minutes the scent diminished quite a lot.  It’s just a remnant of it’s former self.  This is the only reason i give this a 4 out of 5 rating. If the scent stayed as strong as when i first sprayed it, this would surely be a 5 out of 5 rating.

 

 
 

Road From Damascus bath oil

4 out of 5 rating. see my demo video

Lush Description; “With Damascus rose and bitter orange you’ll be whisked away momentarily from this ever changing world.”

rosed

this has a lovely, fresh floral fragrance of rose, violet and orange flower.

It was made in the new, upcoming perfume fragrance of the same name.

I’m glad I was able to get a few

Here’s my demo video of this bath oil

 

The Lush Creative Showcase and Oxford Street bubble bar called ‘Magic Coloured’ bubbles was made in the Road From Damascus scent.

Happy Accident

Happy Accident is an “Oops” bubble bar made in the UK in Early 2007. It has a lovely peach pink color. It smells to me like Amandopondo bubble bar as it does have a rose and citrus scent, and then mixed it with he scent of Lush ‘Happy’ bubble bar. Then again, it does smell a bit like the Lush bath bomb ‘Absolute Delight’. Not exactly positive what that lovely scent is…

 

Marzibain

 

Review: This was made to smell like “Snowcake” soap. It’s a scrumptious scent of light roses and almond paste, like Marzipan cookies. The ony things I use with a Marzibain bubble bar (so as not to sully it’s sublimlely scrummy scent) is “Snowcake” soap of course and also like to use it and then spritz on some Snowcake perfume.

Ingredients: sodium bicarbonate, cream of tartar, sodium laureth sulfate, lauryl betaine, perfume, cocamide DEA, benzoin resinoid, cassie absolute, rose absolute, whole almond.

2001 Yuletide LT description: This Marzibain is one of those Lush specials for people with a sweet tooth who don’t want to eat too much sugar; it’s a sweet “cake” of bubble bath from the bubble bar that smells just like marzipan with the added bonus fragrance of rose and fruity cassie buds (same scent as Snowcake and Big Ed). For piles of white, fluffy, marzipan scented bubbles crumble the whole thing into the running bathwater; it will satisfy your craving for sweet things with no guilt whatsoever.

From the 2002 Yuletide LT: The Marzibain is back, smelling like extra tasty marzipan, the same as last year but not as crumbly like almond icing, more solid like my grandma’s Christmas almond buns (you wuoldn’t have wanted to eat one of these either). You pronounce it to rhyme with marzipan (bain, French for bath = funny Lush pun) Marziban not Marzibane, or else it’s not funny at all is it?

Scent Family: Snowcake Perfume; Snowcake Shower Gel; Snowcake Soap; Snow On Snow Dusting Powder; Smitten Hand Cream; Oops! Almond Kisses Facial Moisturiser; Big Ed Yuletide Soap

Noubar

 

Lush Times Online: Then the day got even better! Mo pulled the covers off to strip bare her brand new Palm Oil Free Sexy Noubar Soap! It’s one of those “But it looks so delicious, surely i could just take a tiny bite…” soaps that are her speciality. To be fair it does look rather like nougat, what with all those crushed pistachios to give you an exfoliating scrub. Dont do it. Just wash with it. To give it another posh confectionary touch, Mo’s given it a Turkish rose absolute fragrance, with coffee and a hint of smokey vetivert. It’s long name is to remind everyone of the campaign to stop primary forests being destroyed replaced with palm plantations; profitable for the owners but disastrous for the local people and wildlife and suicidal for our shared environment. We don’t just campaign, we act. Join in! And remember, wash with it, no chewing!

Ingredients:Water (Aqua), Glycerine, Rapeseed oil; Sunflower oil; Coconut oil (Brassica napus; Helianthus annuus; Cocos nucifera), Chopped Peanuts (Arachis hypogaea), Chopped Almonds (Prunus dulcis), Chopped Walnuts (Juglans regia), Sodium Hydroxide, Perfume, Titanium Dioxide, Pistachio Nuts (Pistacia vera), Gardenia Extract (Gardenia jasminoides), Vetivert Oil (Vetiveria zizanoides), Rose Absolute (Rosa damascena), Cedarwood Oil (Cupressus funebris), Sodium Chloride, Geraniol, *Citronellol, Colour 42045 * Occurs naturally in Essential Oils

It’s a beautiful green color, and it’s nutty, but i’m not thrilled with all the
nuts.
