Gorilla Perfume by Lush

Hiya lovelies!

I have a bit of a Lush 'Gorilla Perfume' addiction. There are 6 solid perfumes and 4 samples here.


L-R Imogen Rose, Tuca Tuca, Lust, Orange Blosson, Breath of God, The Smell of Weather Turning, Karma, The Smell of Freedom

Imogen Rose is my absolute favourite of the bunch. It's absolutely divine. Let me say every other rose perfume I've smelled apart from this one smelled like pissy old ladies. Imogen Rose smells like a hug in a bottle. There's baby powder, rose (of course) and my favourite scent ingredient ever, vetivert (also referred to as vetiver or vetyver.)

From Gorilla Perfume

Main notes : rose oil, rose absolute, basil, bergamot, vetivert, ambrette seed, tonka, orris.

Real rose oil and absolute in amounts that nobody in their right mind would use; a soft, exquisite, powdery amber accord and the dry, woody vetivert notes make this eponymous homage to Simon's young daughter a beautiful, romantic, one-of-a-kind perfume. It's the scent of youthful innocence.
Always disappointed with other rose perfumes? Try ours: rose oil and absolute and just a hint of baby powder fragrance.

It's the kind of fragrance which ensures you can't stop sneaking whiffs of yourself you want to hump yourself when you wear it. A big fat bottle of Imogen Rose has been on my almost never-ending wishlist for over 2 years. One day it shall be mine! I love the whole ethos of Gorilla Perfume - no fancy bottles or swanky packaging, just damn good perfume.

I have quite a lot of perfume, both from indie sellers and well-known companies.
