Mmmm, good smells

I smell like karma and lust, y'all. Or at least what the Lush company thinks they smell like, which is pretty damn good. I got the solid perfume version of these when my sister and I went on our little excursion last weekend during the one tiny window of feeling decent that I had. The tubes basically work the way lip balm does, except you push up instead of twisting up, and you smear them on your skin instead of your lips.

I liked both of these scents individually, but put together they are heavenly! Main scents in each that I can discern are:

Karma - Patchouli and lavender (there are other good hippie-smelling scents here but I can't pick them out)

Lust - Jasmine (lots and lots of jasmine!), sandalwood and rose

Mmmmmm. Smeared together on your skin they make you smell like a tropical garden. Lust may not be for everyone, as you have to really like jasmine in order for it to not overwhelm you, but I love it.
See? Kind of like Chapstick. The atomisers are more expensive.
Patrick loves it too. ;)

Ooh, I love jasmine. I'll have to check it out if I'm ever near a Lush store.

Oh please do. And if you want to actually buy any of it online, use the UK site, not the US one. I know it sounds counterintuitive, but strangely the UK one is cheaper. That is why I linked to them!

I smell awesome! hehe If you do try them, I bet you'll love them. They smell fabulous. Mmm, flowers! *hugs*

I'm more of a fresh citrus person and don't generally wear florals. Do you think I would like it? Glad you smell GOOD and that Patrick likes it. *wink*

Adrasteia said...

Hmm, probably not, actually. At least not for wearing on yourself. You might think that it was pleasant for ME to wear, but not a scent that you'd personally want on. They are both very warm, sultry scents. They definitely do have fresh citrus-y types of scents, though! The whole store smells delicious. You should definitely go sometime.

Love this little beauty post here. Those scents sound heavenly. I wish we had a store like that- well, we probably do, but I rarely explore when shopping. I may have to go to the site!
