A love it or hate it scent, rich, heady, honeyed jasmine. To me, this is nostalgia of summer nights and the scent of my grandmothers garden wafting in through the window as we slept on floor mats to keep cool. I hated this the first time I smelled it as a teenager in the store. It is VERY strong in the bottle. Now, as a frugal (ish) adult, that is a massive plus for me as a little goes a long way in the shower and I can go without perfume after using this.It works fairly well as a shampoo every now and then as well, the honey is quite moisturising. Of course, the smell is even more potent when its in the hair, so I don't use it often to avoid offending people who don't like jasmine (I loathe it when people have chemically super sweet scents on, so I understand how a smell can offend)Consistency is perfect, not too runny, not too thick. Lathers up fairly well, not an enormous amount, but not a pittance either.This retails for $32.50 for 500g in Australia... Rather expensive for a shower gel but you have to pick your poison sometimes. I'm happy to shell out for something with such a concentrated smell and good lather, as it's akin to perfume for me. I will be buying another bottle soon as I've heard rumors its going to be discontinued.

I think you either love Jasmine or hate it. Yes it does have a strong smell and the trouble with Jasmine, is it can smell a bit 'funky' in large doses. I personally love the smell of this gel and love how the Jasmine warms up in the shower with hot water. I can see that, for some, it could be too strong. My advice is to go in-store at Lush and not to order on line for a first purchase, if possible.

Not moisturizing, and has a strong tobacco/cigarette butt smell (to me).

I was very disappointed with moisturizer I bought and was going to give up on LUSH forever until a clerk suggested this. This is my favorite LUSH product alongside Lust. Flying Fox smells identical to their Lust perfume by the way, so if you like that smell definitely give this a shot and vise-versa.Believe the hype my friends, the smell is STRONG. It's a strong, sensous combination of Jasmine and honeysuckle with a hint of rose, a scent profile I absolutely adore. I usually don't bother with scented gels because the scent usually wears off 5 minutes after I step out of the shower. This is not like that. The smell will stay on your skin for HOURS, not exaggerating here. I love how silky it feels on my skin and it is very therapeutic to just stand in the shower breathing the smell in. It's a small session of aromatherapy I appreciate during my morning commute.My biggest problem with this product is the price. As with all LUSH products, you get very little for the amount you pay; the 100m bottle is $9.99, and if you use this daily it will hardly last, especially considering this gel doesn't lather well. I rarely fall in love with a scent like I did with this one so I buy the bigger bottle, but if you're trying it out definitely grab the smaller bottle first. I know a lot of people think the smell is too strong, so also try to test it at the Lush store before making a purchase.

I received this as a gift and realized I'd been missing out! I love jasmine and sweet scents so this was great for me. I use it as a bubble bath and shower gel. The smell lingers around the house. I have just ran and I will purchase the largest one next! Update: I purchase this on a regular basis but buy the largest bottle to save money. Love it for a luxury wash or bath

Oh boy, I really hate the smell of this. It has a pungent jasmine scent, which together with the honey and the other ingredients creates a smell of burnt rubber and cat pee. I find it quite headache-inducing, and the fact that it stays on the skin means I will be handing my small bottle to someone less sensitive of smells. As a shower gel this works nicely, just like all the other Lush shower gels I've tried, and I really would have appreciated the easy consistency of this (not too thin, not too thick, no need to shake), but the smell is overpowering and simply bad. It's a shame both of the honey-based Lush shower gels are so far from an easily approached, traditional honey scent, such as a mild honey-and-lemon scent.

I love Lush because they offer natural, high quality products and I have come to love lots of them. This is an exception, I will never buy this product again. The packaging is great and the product was affordable but oh my god, the smell! Something about this smell makes me so nauseous. To me it doesen't smell fresh at all, it smells gross, some kind of overly sweet flowers (and strong too). I can't really describe it but I had to give this product away. The smell made me feel physically sick and just thinking about it makes me cringe. Everybody has different tastes but for me, I just wouldn't buy it ever again. Make sure you smell it before you buy it!

I made a stupid mistake of buying Flying Fox instead of It's Raining Men. I had read so many good reviews of both that I thought I would pick one of them up and I chose the wrong one. I smelt it in the store and I think maybe my nose was getting distracted by all the other Lush scents that I didn't notice how much I disliked this one.To me, it honestly smells like over-fermented flowers. Like dying jasmines. That are sweetened with honey. It is also so pungent that it feels like my nose is being attacked. Luckily, I only bought the smallest bottle but even so, it's a lot of money to waste and I honestly have tried to use it up and I just can't get past the scent of this. It does lather up well and it does also make my skin feel moisturised but unless I killed my sense of smell I don't think I could go on using this. Won't be repurchasing.

SWEET HONEY JASMINE!!!! This shower gel smells absolutely amazing, beautiful, sexy, delicious, and super floral. It stays on your skin as well. The jasmine smell will also take over your bathroom! IT IS STRONG. It Lathers up quite well. It thoroughly cleans without stripping.Its not the most moisturizing shower gel that ive come across but does not dry me out. I don't like the price, it seems like you almost HAVE to buy the biggest size to feel like your actually getting your moneys worth because it's expensive. But it is made with real, high quality, natural ingredients. I don't like the packaging, it's not pretty, but it is practical.Actually, Im starting to get into LUSH and its products which is funny because I would always make fun of LUSH and anything "green". I thought the products are overrated, wouldnt work, and just for silly hippies. I was WRONG! What a great product and brand!

Smells heavenly, but it's not very moisturizing. I prefer using the Godiva shampoo bar as soap - same scent, just a little nicer on dry skin.
