Jasmine Lover? Here’s the Lush Gorilla Perfume That Will Have You Snoffing Yourself All Day
Are you a Jasmine lover? OK even if you’re aren’t, I still want to sell you this perfume.
This has got to be: the best smelling Jasmine perfume in the world. I mean I LOVE jasmine. I love sniffing jasmine perfumes. I have several jasmine perfumes. And nothing beats this. Seriously. I think this perfume has got to have the largest amount of jasmine put into a bottle. This perfume is called Lust. Now don’t be confused between Lust and Lush. Lust is the name of the perfume, while Lush is the name of the store. Not sure why they named it to be confusing though.
OK before I go on, let me just say that Lush makes multiple perfumes from their hit scents. They had some popular soaps, bubble bars turned into perfumes which is great, because now you can wear your favourite scent all day long. Lush calls them “Gorilla perfumes” which honestly I don’t know why they’re called “gorillas”, so I did some research and found out that:
In 2008, a magazine referred to Lush founder Mark Constantine and son Simon as ‘guerrilla perfumers’. Simon’s brother Jack responded by suggesting that ‘Gorilla’ might be a more appropriate epithet for them and the name stuck; in 2010, the first album of Gorilla Perfumes was released to the public.
Since its inception, Gorilla Perfumes has danced to a different beat, proudly declaring that perfume is the point. And in the spirit of getting to the point, here’s a TL;DR (too long; didn’t read) of four ideas that suggest that Gorilla Perfumes is out-of-the-ordinary.
Gorilla Perfumes are expressions of creativity produced in-house, rather than formulas bought in en masse.Exquisite essential oils are used in the creation of Gorilla perfumes.
Musicians and a vast network of artists, ecologists and environmentalists inspire, and often collaborate with, Gorilla Perfumes.
The release of each volume of perfumes is showcased by way of an interactive gallery. Past highlights have included a stone circle (still standing in the Isle of Purbeck), and a large-as-life cross section of a water tank with a fascinating backstory.
You can read more about the origin in Lush’s website.
Now Lust is a little different - it doesn’t have other products related to it. It’s a perfume on its own. I was introduced to this perfume when I told the people at Lush that I love Jasmine. I was buying Flying Fox (Jasmine shower gel) at the time, and so they suggested I try this perfume. And oh man, I fell in love so fricking bad. It’s like me, in a spa, all day. The scent lasts pretty long, and its so aromatic.
Here’s the description from Lush: A powerful, unadulterated and sexy jasmine perfume. This delivers a long-lasting floral hit onto the skin, for those days (or nights) when you want to tempt and tantalise. Cast aside your inhibitions with a striking and sensual jasmine perfume that stirs a primal yearning.
The main ingredients are Rose, Jasmine, and Ylang Ylang. Who can resist that combination?
At first I bought the 30ml bottle, but then ran out so fast I had to repurchase the 100ml bottle. I use it all day while I was studying in the UK. Whenever I feel bored, I spritz it on lol. It just refreshens me up immediately.
This is my third bottle already!
Seriously I recommended this to a friend of mine who also loves Jasmine, and she bought it for her mom at once. This is one special scent that you can’t find anywhere.
Lush also does body sprays, but unfortunately they don’t make the Lust scent.
