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.

These are the little flower buds in it.
This is the color of the water.

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.)
