I was so pleased to be able to get these two as I knew all my money bar VAT was going to the charity cause and also I knew these were short lived. They are a good size and cost about £2.50 each. I got four baths from my first one and the second one is hiding in my clothes drawer for use sometime in the next months.
It smells really unusual, exactly like the 'Bug' perfume which is kind of unisex and in no way feminine. Initially it smells a bit like an insect repellent but it warms on you and is quite herby, not sweet at all. It is kind of aftershave rather than perfume in aroma.
INTO MY BATH
I always fill my bath then pop in the ballistic as that way I can watch it go to work fizzing and sending out it colours and scents while I am in there with it. This tuned fabulous greeny and blue mixed colours and the smell was lovely. It dissolved and fizzed quite slowly so that the colours fizzed out and the scent was allowed to develop slowly growing stronger all the time.
I sat or rather lay back in the bath enjoying the interesting herb like aroma which filled not only my bath water but the bathroom and then beyond into our bedroom as well.
The bath water was a lovely greenish clear colour and really soft. The scent stayed on my body for sometime afterwards. My skin felt nice, not tight or irritated in any way. It didn't moisturise me but didn't dry me out either. I had no itchy skin despite my strange skin that is sensitive to things that make me come out in rashes.
Trying so hard to describe this smell. The notes in this are like those of the perfume which are; galbanum and black pepper with strong and unusual notes of cistus labdanum, sandalwood and elemi oil.
I am not familiar with some of those but do love the perfume as it is really unusual. It reminds me a bit of Comme des garcon 'Amazing Green' but stronger and slightly sweeter or creamier.
Galbanun is sort of Sort of woody like a forest rather than woody like sandalwood. It is quite an intense green fragrance with woody and balsamic elements. Cistus labdanum is a resin a bit like myrrh and also woody in scent while sandalwood is woody and sweeter and elemi oil is citrus like with a slightly spicy scent . So you can see al the notes for this perfume are in the woody, spicy fresh band and no sweet and creamy ones at all. I think it is an acquired taste and would certainly appeal to a lot of men as it is kind of aftershave like but I love it.
Yes, but sadly unless Lush can be persuaded to make some more in the future you won't be able to get hold of one. I am so sad that I didn't buy more but £7.50 seemed a lot to spend on bath stuff in one hit. I thought £5 was enough so I shall have to save my second one for some special baths in the future!
