Lush Love- Lust Gorilla Stick

I first heard of Lush's Gorilla sticks in a 'Five things I'm loving' post from Yas Turker at She was raving about the Karma fragrance, which she said smelt like the 70s and was amazing. The scent that hooked me in was Lust, a beautiful jasmine/rose infused scent that sat wonderfully on my skin.
Here is the description Lush gives of this product:
It's a very heady perfume that's not for the shy and retiring. It starts off as strong, pure jasmine and warms on the skin to a seductive floral scent. It lasts for hours and hours. Unlike some other things we could mention.

-Beautiful strong scent, reminds me of my favourite flower (jonquil) and sits well on my skin
-Very portable perfume being in solid 'roll-on' form
-Classy packaging, nothing over the top just a great product in a black tube
-Lasts quite a long time on me, though I do reapply often as I find it fun
-Extremely affordable at $7.95

-Sometimes leaves chunks of itself on my skin, or a oil line. This, I suppose, comes with the territory of using a roll on solid perfume
-Works like a push pop in that you unscrew the cap and push it up from underneath to get the fragrance stick to appear. Problem is having to physically push it back down again to replace the cap, which means I have taken many chucks out of this and made a mess of it. Would prefer a twist down for it.

Would I repurchase? Yes! Fun idea and though not executed perfectly, the scent and lovely staff at Lush more than make up for it. $7.95

Note, the spray on version of this scent smells nothing like the gorilla stick...or is that just me?

  1. Sounds adorable :)

    I wouldn't mind carrying around a solid perfume stick with me shaped like a push pop. The smell also sounds lovely.

  2. The smell is to die for! It's such cute packaging, and so cheap! I'm planning on buying some of the other fragrances as gifts etc

  3. I just received one of these for Xmas- the purple one? lol- it smells nice but is almost too strong for me! Great blog! x jeanie

  4. I'm loving strong scents atm, so I might have to check that one out!
