One of the hardest LUSH fragrances to describe. It is floral mixed with green and a hint of spice, I think. It is more breezy then most and makes you think of summer in time lost to present. Brings back some memories I can not place. It is wearable and fresh, like most LUSH scents, but not a scent I would choose all the time.
Probably one of my favorite all time Lush scents. I love Patchoul, and I love spicey insense fragrance. Plus, this one has a kick to it to boot, with a citrusy smell mixed with the patchouli. It was wearable day or night, anytime. I love the mix of this on the back of my neck near my hair line. Sexy, and truly hippish, like myself.
Like another poster here, at first, I was really disappointed. I was smelling in on my arm, thinking it was a teenager type candy scent. Then it morphed and it was pleasant, fresh, yummy goodness. A mix of green and sweet. It had a nice appeal and my daughter and I both love it, so both generations covered. :)
This is a cocktail scent that sparkles when you wear it. Not sweet, not spicey, just a dry wearable sparkling citrus scent mixed with an more vening flare to me. I like it anytime, but it goes good with a nice sun dress out to dinner or a spring/summer evening. It is one of the most overall wearable scents from LUSH, to me.
The cherry in this scent is sutle, not overpowering like fruity cherry, more smooth cherry with a bit of green clean, and spice. It is a nice everyday scent. I would not be without this scent, but do not reach for it as my first choice either.
One fabulous insense scent. It worries me a bit when I bought it unsniffed, but after a few wearings, I was convinced it was nearly perfect on the 'insense radar'. If you like heady insense scent, you will love this and like another poster here, will never let yourself run out.
Not my favorite Lush, but not bad either. i am a ginger freak, and this was just ok. It had ginger, but not as refreshing as some. It was alot of spice, less ginger, and was not smooth to the smells as some of my giner scents. I am rating this cautiously, as there are alot of other LUSH scents that are much better.

Simple, seemily 'one note scent', much like Lemon joy dish liquid with a twist. Not bad, not my fav, but I do reach for it on occasion to feel fresh and renewed. A great scent to use after a tanning session or to freshen up.
I have 2 champaca scents and I have to say, if Luxe champaca is the true scent, I am in love. It is truly beautiful, feminine and classic, yet stunning and enchanting all at the same time. A true artful floral of a scent. It reminds me of a simpler time, not my grandmother, but of love in springtime, flower, gardens and walks in the warm summer air. It reminds me to breath again, sigh and say 'Life is good'.
I have tried 3 of these and there is not one I do not reach for again and again. I have to say, by far, so far, my favorite is Avignon. It is clean, unisexed and very sensual on my skin. my son and I share this bottle and though we are different genders and way different ages, it smells equally wonderful on both of us. I can not wait to try the Kyoto. I know it will be equally a masterpiece.
There is so little to say about this fragrance other than..'wait till you try this and you are hooked!'. It is very expensive, yes, but worth every drop, as someone else here said so delibertly and well. It is addictive, sweet, but tangy. The mix of patchouli and the maple goodness is AMAZING. It is the perfect winter day scent and frankly, I do not think it matters when you wear this. It just FITS!
I liked this one surprisingly. I was nervous, because alot of this line I really dislike or even hate. I smelled the sample vial first, carefully, then dapped it on, liked it enough, put more on and spent the day in it yesterday. It was wearable, interesting and a bit sexy. I love the Ginger notes and the fruitiness that is not too much, not too little. I want a full bottle of this one too, so I now have two I like from this line so far. Not bad, but could be better.

This seems to be the nicest in the scent line from this company. It was wearable and an interesting scent to boot. It smells good, clean and feminine, but at the same time, wearable by a man too. I want a full bottle of this, so I guess I will buy again (tried a sample only so far).

I can honesty say, there has never been a scent I disliked as much as this one. It made me want to vomit and, like most reviewers here, I could not wash it off no matter how hard I tried. I even had in on the back of my neck, in my hair-line and had to go wash my hair good. It would not leave me. My DH thought it was silly, the scent, the name, the packaging and all, but NOT ONE PERSON IN MY HOUSE..children include, thought it smelled even slightly good. It was the worst. As far as a gag gift/novelty, it was even too expensive to be considered that. How does this company even make money on this. It is the WORST!

Interesting and energizing. A different kinda scent. Not for everyone, but pleasant to wear. For someone looking for something different and not the usualy department store scent.
