If I had to choose among Lush perfumes: Autumn Picks


You might be thinking I'm slowly turning into a quirky LUSH lady but the reality is - I've just wanted to find a way to indulge Lush in another way than simply watching their bath bombs on display (and wishing I had a bath tub too). You, bath bomb lovers, can laugh all you want. I will comfort my sorrow in Lush perfumes and shower gels. I'm beginning to master my Lush scents. Seriously. Ever since Amelie Mae (read about it here) became my summer jam, I'm actually realising how much I've been missing out - not trying Lush perfumes beforehand. If you're a Lushie you most definitely need to find your favourite Lush scent! It's an obligatory step you need to take. But can you really bond to only one scent when there's so much colourfulness that suits different moods?

SLO
Mogoče se vam zdim že kot pokvarjena LUSH plošča, ampak po resnici? Želela sem raziskati še Lush parfume ker se samo slinim ob njihovih kopalnih kroglicah - ki ne pridejo v upoštev pri meni doma. Kopalnica brez bane je prekletstvo. Svojo žalost bom zlila na svojo kožo v obliki Lush stekleničk. S tem pa postajam pravi mali mojster Lush dišav. Ugotavljam kaj mi je všeč in kaj ne. Kakšen je moj karakter, kaj je moj dišavni podpis in kakšen vtis želim pustiti. Lush dišave so več kot barvne lestvice vonjev, pustijo močen pečat ravno zaradi nenavadnih mešanic, ki so daleč stran od generičnih poizkusov. Po poletni romanci z Amelie Mae (preberi tukaj) sem še bolj zaljubljena v čarovnije Lusha. Ko enkrat postaneš pravi Lushie, je raziskovanje svoje Lush identitete zabaven proces. Vprašanje je le, ali se lahko odločiš le za en vonj v mavrici dišav?


First of all, we need to clear something out. If I had the possibility to choose one general Lush scent and put it into a flask I would choose Honey I washed the Kids or It's Raining Men shower gel. Simply like that. I'm a sweet person that appreciates cozy and warmhearted notes. Honey is sweet but also bitter and more complex than meets the nose.
Vanillary (30g for 25€ in Lush stores) also in a body spray version, hint hint) will be everybody's sweetheart. I can't even imagine the possibility of not liking true vanilla scent. This is exactly IT. A true seductive vanilla notes, kind of sugary but still balanced with comforting tonka and a touch of jasmine. The scent is truly scrumptious like Lush claims. It's not girly at all - it's a grown up perfume with sweet character.
I'm Home (30g for 35€ in Lush stores) has character. Soft sweet character but a strong one. It's mocha coffee topped with caramel topping if I'm more precise. By all means, don't expect a straight forward chocolate but a smokey and rich version of Lush tonka. Do you see the pattern here? I obviously have a soft spot for tonka. Soft scarfs and warm jumpers, here I come!

Še prej pa moramo nekaj razčistiti. Če bi lahko, ČE bi obstajala možnost, da bi lahko izbrala svoj Lush ustekleničen vonj, bi zagotovo to bil Honey I washed the kids (ali It's Raining Men gel za tuširanje). Na jesen imam rada sladke, tople note ki pa so kljub temu malce prizemljene. Med je sladek in tudi grenek, veliko kompleksnejši v plasteh kot na prvo žogo.
Vanillary (30g za 25€ na Lush spletni strani; zdaj tudi v body spray verziji, juhu!) bo všeč vsaki in vsakemu. Ustrežljiv vonj prave vanilije bo kar lepil ljudi na tebe. Vanilija, ki je lepo uravnovešena z jasminom, ni nič kaj podobna dekliškim parfumom. Nasprotno, ravno kombinacija jasmina in tonke poudari čutnost hkrati pa doda nežen pudrast pridih. Kljub temu pa še najbolj sladkast v kolekciji Lush parfumov. 
I'm Home (30g za 35€ na Lush spletni strani) ima mehek a močen karakter. Je kot skodelica moka kave, na katero se doda topel karamelni obliv. Vseeno ne pričakujte pravega vonja čokolade, saj je I'm Home umirjen z zadimljenim tonom smole in tonke. Ste že mogoče zaznali vzorec? Več kot očitno mi je pri srcu tonka. Topli šali in ogromni puloverji, prihajam!

Pa še nekaj! Lush parfumi imajo različne cene ravno zaradi vsebine in cen samih surovin, ki jih premišljeno dodajo v vsako dišavo. In še ekstra bonus točke? Dišave niso testirane na živalih, so dokaj naravno bazirane in držijo ves dan na koži in oblačilih. Kolikokrat se mi je že zgodilo, da sem tekom dneva zavohala samo sebe in spraševala sodelavke po novem parfumu, hihi.
