This is one of my top three scents for daily use. I love it whether it's the perfume, soap, bath bombs- it's an amazing smell and it wears well. The fact that they bottled my favorite scent is great for me. The biggest con I can think of is that patchouli is not for everyone, and karma can be very strong if you apply too much. But I find it brightens my day and brings a smile to my face.
I love the smell of Karma. Because of oil it last for a while. It has a pleasant patchouli scent to it
I am now on my 3rd bottle of Karma, I adore it that much. Smells just like a headshop <3 I love hippy scents.
There is nothing that compares to this smell.
Imagine the most potent headshop you've ever visited and up the ante with the patchouliest fortune teller you ever met. Imagine this scent driving all your friends and loved ones away.
That's OK, you smell marvelous.
Perfect gorgeous long-lasting scent. Love that it is virtually all natural as well. Never really give Lush a second thought when shopping for perfume or cosmetics, until a friend bought me Karma push up perfume stick and that was it.. have now got the soap, spritzer, another pop perfume, shampoo, conditioner and the sea spray in hair. Spend a small fortune every time I go in the shop, but always happy with my purchases. Love everything it stands for as well. No animal testing or cruelty. I am LUSHING IT. XX
I have an eclectic taste in fragrance and rarely find anything unpleasant . I may find some frags uninspiring , but rarely do I find anything unpleasant . Karma is the most vile smelling fragrance I have ever smelled . It smells SICKENING . When I smelled it at Neiman's after reading reviews, I was stunned that anyone would put such foul smelling chemicals for sale and call it perfume. This is absolutely horrible , almost enough to make you hurl.
My daughter , 28 , also found it disgusting . ( YUCK!!!)
Perhaps this company makes other worthy fragrances , but this one is one that is suitable as a gift for an evil person ( just be certain to stay far from them . )
I love the way this smells-orange creamsicle is perfect, as some other reviewers have said. I think it smells fresh and citrusy...makes me thirsty =) My aunt said she could smell patchouli, but I can't.
I wouldn't buy this again, not because it's a bad perfume, but because I almost never buy the same perfume twice. Packaging: terrible. So cheap...the label is literally a sticker that is now starting to peel off. The lid also feels thin and flimsy.
In the many blind smell trials I put my OH through over the years to discover which fragrance he likes, this one by far has been his favourite, i didn't buy it at the time as for me it was just soo strong, but years later he can still remember it. I spend a small fortune on fragrances and most of the time my OH can't distinguish one from another, I haven't been able to top that ( maybe with one exception) I think i'll apply very, very lightly and to keep it for special occasions with him as I just can't imagine anyone else appreciating it as much as he does.
The more I experiment with perfumes, the more I am realizing that my chemistry will amp up any sweet, fruity note until it screeches itself into a temper tantrum and then it wets its pants. I guess that's why I do better with deep,earthy fragrances. This starts off as a mellow creamsicle on me, then the patch makes an appearance and it's soft and earthy...but not in a "I have not bathed in three days, but Patchouli will eat though anything" way. If you are a patchouli fan, check it out, it's a unique spin on the note, but I don't feel it dominates the blend. A light application works in warm weather, and I can see this being nice for fall and winter as well.
A love it or hate it scent - it is definitely unique. The whole lush line is suited for those who like earthy scents. Karma evolves with each persons chemistry differently. The patchouli gives it the warm earthiness, the pine and orange make it smell clean, and the lavender and vanilla tie it all together. I have tried the solid shampoo, soap, gorilla perfume, karma cream, and solid perfume. The soap is glorious, and perfectly balanced, doesn't lather well (but you don't really need it to), and lingers on the skin. The perfume is very very strong, one spritz is all you need. The cream is very sweet smelling, and smells most similar to the solid perfume. When I smell the cream and solid perfume, its very reminiscent of an orange creamsicle. The solid shampoo is great, I love turning my head and smelling Karma in my hair. This is the scent for people who don't want their scent to scream out at people, but to gently waft in the air as you walk by, disappearing as soon as it came. Its complex, unique, and different on everyone. I get tons of compliments when I wear it, especially from my Hippy turned Southern Belle coworker who says it reminds her of the 60s, and loves it.
