I'll start off by saying that I am a fragrance newb. I can see why another reviewer thought this smelled like the inside of a CVS - when I first smelled it, it smelled that way to me too, and I suddenly regretted purchasing this (I got the solid form). But I kept it on and after a little while, it started smelling a little better, more like my favorite Lush body wash, Tramp (I really want a solid perfume of that). Overall I do like the way this smells, but it is definitely rather odd, especially as a women's fragrance. To me it smells aquatic, clean, androgynous, and intriguing, which are all qualities that I admire and that I aspire to. It's not for everyone, but if you're looking for something different, check it out.
Smoky, leathery incense goodness. dries down to a deep dark aquatic smell ... really nice for MEN!
..there's something nutty about this one....like some kind of strange sacral hazelnut,and like many reviewers I fell in love with it after a first whiff...
like I said many times before, I really don't seem to like gettin on a ''woohoo-I'm-soo-cool-and-use-Lush-like -Madonna'' bandwagon, simply because of the aggressive marketing leaning towards persuasion of ''how good and versatile Lush products are''..(NOT!)..and being bougt and used by many respectable stars makes it even a little repulsive for me...why the heck should I care what Madonna or Kardashians wear?....so I tend to avoid Lush and given the very high prices, I think justified so.
but luckily for me, a friend brought this to my attention by bringing a small,ugly,black bottle with 30 g(?like, haven't they heard about liquid measures for f.sake??) product...and as soon as I frowned at the mentioned brand, I took a shot and was left speechless...
this is very,very niche-sque sort of fragrance, very deep,soft and unbeleavably wearable!
starting off with a pungent smell of burnt wood,bonfire,fur,and very prominent cedarwood, you would've thought something icky this way''ll come, but nope, this goes in whole another path...black pepper listed as a componend gives a fantastic sweetenes to a scent, and ylang-ylang makes it zingy,almost bready, but with no flower accord familliar to my nose...
it is quite strong and violent, but after just 15 minutes it settles into a wonderful melange,making an aromatic-woody scent (not oriental imho) very well money-worthy...and that's ALOT of money!!!it seems to me a better choice to buy a big botlle than just a 10 ml. decant because it is just tooo darn expensive!!!
but all in all it goes amazingly good with my skin's PH and makes me think of twisted CdG creations such as Tar or maybe even some leathery scents like Cuir Ottoman(without the light and beautiful iris part)..
worthy of your attention if you like totaly different kind of slightly woody/animalic nutty scents....try before you buy!!!
lasting life- aproximately 5 hrs...just about enough!
don't get me started with the development phases because it is the wildest rollercoaster you'll ever experience!!!
10/10! (even though it's Lush!)
HG within its type. I've tested it alongside Lust and Ginger at a Lust store and had to come back to get a full bottle. It's a solemn, spiritual, rich, very complex fragrance. I agree with the references to oriental temples and holy ceremonies. I also agree that it changes drastically according to skin, weather condition etc. On my friend, for example, it smells like disinfectant. Breath of God is something I put on when I feel chic, introspective and serene. It's not a sexy, flirtatious fragrance. Having said that, this 'not so obvious' character might be just what it takes for you to get noticed.
I tried the solid version of this in store, the end note somehow reminds me of lust. I like the scent of lust and this is lust with some minty hint and without the sweetness of lust. Probably because of the jasmine that could be found in both. Its a very special kind of scent which varies depending on each individual. But all in all, I like how it smell on me.
i got this based on a review from a woman saying this fragrance brought her to tears, because it was so lovely. i was pretty disappointed with my sample, it smells incredibly masculine, and doesn't seem like anything very special. it does smell exotic, but i could never wear this, and i don't think i'd like to smell it on anyone else either.
I have the solid from a Boxing Day sale (it was 50% off). Breath Of God is not an awful scent however to me it smells just like the medicinal scent of a fabric band-aid (plaster) & Dettol (antiseptic) cream. It may be a good background scent to layer with a very sweet fragrance but I won't be repurchasing again even @ half price.
If this is gods breath, than please god, get some mouthwash!
It smells ridiously smokey, so if you love that gross smell when you've been outside and there was a bonfire, this is for you. For the rest of us who like pleasantly smelled perfumes, do not get. Smell in the shop why. Peppery, smokey, but not at all citrusy like the description says. It smells very masculin, but honestly, a lot of male colognes smell WAY better than this. The price is also very high, for such bad quality, however isn't really expensive for a perfume either.
I've been searching for the right words to describe this perfume forever. Mentholated summer sausage? Oscillating vetiver? Sea breeze Bologna? I could never get it right. I offered a sniff to my five-year-old and she immediately nailed it: "It smells like inside CVS." YES! The smell of trapped air with tobacco, beef jerky, ben gay, cough drops and a lot of bath products.
It's not unpleasant...it just smells like CVS.
Quite a lovely, chameleon-like scent! When I first tried it on it morphed slowly from cool melon to a light smoky scent, ending sometime later in a gorgeous sweet incense fragrance that had me literally asking "what smells so good?!" The effect varies dramatically depending on weather, mood, skin chemistry, and probably your hormonal state. In one particular climate / geographic region I found it consistently too heavy and smoky, whereas in another it consistently blossomed into a gorgeous, addictive, spicy, slightly powdery (but not too dry) perfume- an "mmm, LUSH" scent. Definitely worth a few trial runs if you enjoy spicy, incensey, or smoky scents. I should note that I only tried the solid, and I love the blue color with this one. One star off for being a bit finicky.
