Lou's Reviews :: Lush Solid Perfume in 'Love'


Aloha Sprinklerinos,

I have been a Lush addict for as long as I have loved all things beauty. I never manage to go into one a store without picking up a bath ballistic or bubble bar and telling myself it's an 'essential'. It's not! I have an entire box full of the fragrant little 'essentials', just waiting to be used- Eepp!

Recently, rather than stocking up on more delicious bath wonders, I chose something a little out of the ordinary for me, a solid perfume. 


I bought this for £7 and felt that was a bargain when you consider what you would happily pay for a 'liquid' perfume. With notes of lemongrass, apple and cinnamon, this is perfect if, like me, you adore all things fruity. 

The idea with this product is that when you would like to apply a burst of fragrance, simply untwist the lid, push up the perfume and rub like a lip balm on the areas you wish. I tend to go for pulse areas like wrists, as these help omit the fragrance. 

This fruity little number will not be replacing the luxury that is a spritz of Gucci II or D&G Light Blue, but it is the most handy, affordable (and lightweight) day time scent I have found. I think this is ideal for college or the office, when you don't want to be overpowering, but do want to freshen up as the day goes on. 

I don't find this product drying or irritating to the skin (although please do be safe and do a patch test on yourself), but would say that I had to re-apply fairly regularly. 

You can purchase this solid perfume HERE Perfume or in stores and there are 12 to choose from, variety is the spice of life after all!

Is solid perfume something you might add to your makeup bag? Or are you a luxury fragrance kind of a gal?

Toodlepip!

  1. ohhh lemongrass, apple and cinnamon sounds lovely!
    My sister recently bought the one called Ladyboy (hehe) and its very strong, you only need a teeny weeny bit and it lasts all day! And the lady in the Lush shop said you can put it in your hair as well for a nice change! :)

  2. I would def be up for sampling this. I love something that you can throw in your bag and keep discovering it. It's better then spraying yourself in the eye with perfume too...not that I do that of course...

  5. I like all kinds of perfumes. I used to work at Lush and used the solid perfumes that came in the little metal tin, which I found so annoying. I am glad they changed the format in which the perfumes are delivered, this makes so much more sense. If they make this in the "Green" scent, I would probably get it, because I love how earthy and grassy it smells, but it's not something I would want to smell strongly of.

  6. I always wanted to try them ...
    but I never knew if my money is worth it ( Lush is way too expensive in Switzerland)

  13. Omg that's looks amazing I have to try that! Can't wait till my exams are over it's so boring

  14. Is it bad that I've never brought a SINGLE thing in Lush? I just never ever go into a lush and when I do I just don't see anything! I think a big problem is that I only have a shower in my house, so I can't play with all the amazing bath bombs! This looks amazing though, I just love the colour of it and the name, let alone the fragrance! I'll have to check it out!

  17. I have the Cherry Blossom solid perfume from L'Occitane which is beautiful. It was £6 but the pot seems much smaller than the Lush one. I might treat myself to a Lush one this month! xx
