So let me first say that I LOVE sweet scents. I LOVE my BS Fantasy and my Pink Sugar and my buttercream body mist, etc, but I did not think this was sweet. Is it just me? Everyone says it's so sweet but I did not get that. - I got this because of all the great reviews and because I love sweet scents. When I first sprayed it, I was struck by the juicy fruit notes and the citrus and I was really feeling it. About a half hour later, it started to get worse. Then by an hour, all I could smell was this weird, powdery sort of musky scent. I liked the other scents going on but I just couldn't shake that weird powdery dry-down. It smelled very "cheap" to me at that point and I just couldn't take it anymore. I woke up the next day and I could still smell it! I couldn't get it off of me! I realized then that I would never wear it again and I am sooo glad I only got this in a .5 oz size (in a sampler set with 3 other Paris perfumes- which I am still trying out). - If you want to smell like cheap perfume, then this is the scent for you!
Fragrances -LUSH - Twilight Perfume- Forum Special

OMG I LOVE this! I really really am NOT a fan of lavender, but for some reason this works. I think it has something to do with the "malt" note, which is provided by tonka bean and ylang-ylang. It almost smells like lavender Ovaltine or lavendar candy of some sort. Somehow they managed to make the most unique and yummy scent I have smelled in years with something I don't even really like. It smells great at, well, twilight or any time of night, especially after a shower. Sometimes I just put it on before bed to help soothe me to sleep! - I was VERY sceptical about buying this, but I got sucked into the "limited edition" aspect of it, and I had received the forum special shower gel for Christmas last year and really liked the scent so I went for it. It now comes in a black bottle, which is great because the base is sesame oil and oils can go rancid if they are exposed to light. I initally hated the black bottle but I think it's for the best if you want to preserve the integrity of the perfume for a while. - If you are interested, they made WAY more than they anticipated selling, so it is still on sale on their website (from December!) as of today, Feb 28, 2012

This stuff is awesome! I have used it for years now. I put it on my lips every night before I go to bed and it leaves them soft and hydrated. I also have vaseline but I feel that this lasts longer on my lips. I will definitely keep buying it, but my tub has lasted me 3 years and is just getting to the botton, so I won't need to repurchase very often!
OMG I LOVE this! It smells so unique. The smell reminds me of swisher sweets, actually! lol It smells like chocolate, mocha, and cigars. There is a great tobacco type scent that gives it depth and richness, and then there is a random hint of lime to kind of bring it back a little. This is a unisex scent for sure. It is so comforting yet yummy and gourmand. The only thing I really do dislike about this is the consistency. It is very runny, which is such a bummer since the smell is so amazing. Plus, it is very expensive!
Why didn't they bring this back again this past year? It smells soooooo good, like booze-y bubble gum with a hint of cinnamon oil. This is probably my favorite scent of massage bar that Lush carries. I have two left from my hoard and I'm scared to run out! I just adore the way it moisturizes, and I just want to eat myself up after I use it! One thing I have to mention is... let's just say do not get this in the inner thigh area (b/c it burns like a mother!)
Why on Earth would they discontinue anything that smells like candy fluff when it is such a popular scent? I LOVE this dusting powder. Granted, I have this and the vanilla one and I rarely use it, but if I were to, I would appreciate how amazing this smells. The downside is that you have to use it kinda fast (which is hard since they give you a lot) because otherwise the scent fades very fast. I have had mine for a little over a year and it is kept sealed in the container, of course, and it has almost no scent left. Boo hoo. ETA: Works great as a dry shampoo!
Now why on Earth did they have to discontinue this? (I think it's still available in the US but waaay more expensive than the UK version)I personally don't like the smell on me because I think it's too manly, but my husband absolutely adored it. It smelled great on him (very sexy!) and was a perfect gel for his short, spiky hair. I am so bummed I can't buy this for him anymore. It's sooooo expensive in the US, so I took off one lippie.
If you like the smell of pee, then you should totally get this soap. Seriously. That is exactly what it smells like. Oh, and coughdrops. Pee and coughdrops. Yum.
Man, Lush needs to bring this back! It smells so amazing! It smells like Alkmaar soap and that dusting powder with the same scent (the name is escaping me right now). It has just the right amount of oil. I would not use this as a "puck", per se, rather I grab a chunk off and crumble it into a little tupperware, then I scoop that out and use it. I still have a few left but I'm scared to use them because I love them soooo much!
Cherry? Where? This does NOT at ALL smell anything remotely like cherry. I don't know what it smells like but it reminds me of flowers, like chamomile. I really don't like it at all. Blech.
This smells awesome but is soooo expensive! It smells like freshly cut grass and wheatgrass shots with a little citrus. It is quite uplifting. If not for the super steep price, I would probably use this all summer, along with the amazingly refreshing Happy Hippy.
Skincare - Body -LUSH - Strawberry Feels Forever massage bar

Yum yum yum! It smells like real strawberries, and is even shaped like one! So cute :) I love the way this feels when I use it in the shower.
You gotta love this. Bubblegum pink lips that smell like bubblegum. It's a win-win. This doesn't moisturize for s#$% but the color is oh-so-cute and it smells delicious.
I love Lush but I hate this soap. It smells like cherry cough syrup, and it doesn't lather at all. Bleh! Good riddance!
OMG vanilla latte! This is not a straight vanilla smell, rather a vanilla latte smell, and it is so yummy!!! I love love love this smell and the yellow foam is so fun! The formula is super creamy too, and I love the realy vanilla pods, because it shows you that it's not artificial! It smells like REAL vanilla, not that fake crap! I am so sad they got rid of this :( I will treasure my last two bars.
