My new obsession... Lush Gorilla perfumes! I never liked the scents made by Lush's discontinued sister brand B never too busy to be beautiful so I am quite surprised by how much I like these! I find the spray perfumes last 1-3 hours and the solid perfumes to last less than an hour at best, even when layered under the spray version. This doesn't bother me at all as I enjoy applying them and I use them more as aromatherapy / pick-me-ups than as perfume. Don't be scared of the color in the solid sticks.. once blended it disappears! Tuca Tuca - A little bit like parma violets mixed with vanilla. Very soft, powdery and girly. Not really my normally style. I'm not sure why I bought it but it is quite nice. Orange Blossom - This really smells just like the real thing. Lovely! Lust - A jasmine heavy scent. My favourite of the bunch as it is quite literally Flying Fox shower gel in a perfume! My friend Sammie actually discovered is and we have both been obsessed with the solid stick ever since.
For those of you who don't know, Jasmine is incredibly good for relieving symptoms of pms. It's also great for depression. Breath Of God - Herbal and cool with a real salty kick to it. This is a real summery, by-the-beach smell. Not for everyone... in fact I can imagine most people hating it. If you like aquatic scents you may like this. Vanillary - Not at all as sickly sweet as the name would suggest. It's lovely! This smells like softly sweet, milky, tonka bean. Like most Lush products marketed as vanilla scented there is a little something musty about it. I have quite a few (as you can see) but there are two clear winners which live in my handbag and get the most use. Lust & Orange Blossom in the solid form. I've bought them for my mum and sister and they love them too! I'm still using Flying Fox shower gel and now I can get my jasmine kick at any time with Lust! Have you tried any of Lush's Gorilla perfumes? What do you think?
