Okay, you have to like different, woodsy smells to appreciate this perfume. For example, I love sandalwood for the deep, musky quality. Most products I'm drawn to contain sandalwood, vertiver, and deeper floral scents like violet. This perfume has all of these with a hint of vanilla. Try it on first, and if you don't immediately like it, just wait an hour. The scent changes with your body heat and for me, this is how it went. I put it on every morning and my husband says it smells like cat piss. Not good. By the time I get to work, the compliments start coming. "What is that smell...it smells so good," and people start sniffing around trying to figure it out. Men love it once it settles down and turns into that sexy, violet scent. It has become my signature quality at work...smelling good. I really think it smells different to other people...maybe you think it doesn't smell that great on yourself, but others will be following you around sniffing. It is truly a deep, sexy, intoxicating perfume with a bit of spicy undertones. If you're looking for foo foo (think Clinique Happy), this is not for you. If you're looking for a flirty, mature fragrance then give Tuca Tuca a shot. It's only around $30 so what's to lose?

At first I really hated Tuca Tuca, Lush's violet perfume. Like really hated it... but then after actually trying it on my skin a few times I stopped disliking it... and then a few times more I found I liked it.My first response to the perfume was much like many of the other resviews. I thought it smelled foul and a bit like my old aunt.After wearing it a few times though it smelled like really sweet sugared violets, almost like candy. The packaging could be better- but it's not the worst. It looks alright but it leaks sometimes.Overall I would say I really like smelling like Tuca Tuca. It makes me feel sweet, attractive, and bubbley. =D

Reading all these incredibly mixed reviews, I am amazed. It just goes to show how very different Lush scents are on every body. NONE of the offensive odors these people are speaking of showed up on me. From the first use, I began getting compliments on this. My boyfriend is obsessed with smelling this on me. I like to wear Breath of God during the day because it makes me feel sophisticated and elegant, but I wear Tuca at night because it makes me feel gorgeous, sexy, and fun. It's great for clubbing, date night, etc. The smell is very much jasmine, but also with some melon and vanilla. (What's not to love about that?!) And, of course, as with all Lush scents, it changes throughout the day. I agree with another reviewer who said that if you do not like unique scents you will not like this. This is not a perfume for someone who isn't willing to step outside of the box. Please, just give it a shot on your own skin. Spray it on, wait a good 30 minutes, then see what you think!

If you tend to prefer generic department store perfumes then yes, chances are Tuca Tuca is not for you. If you like perfumes that are a little more original, give Tuca Tuca a try.To me, it smells very similar to Lush`s bathos bar; earthy violets, with sensual vanilla and jasmine. Bold, but also a bit mysterious :-)As with all perfumes, it`s best to try before you by. I suppose it could definitely clash with some people`s body chemistry (hence the negative reviews) but I`ve only received compliments, and my SO told me I smell like a sensual flower. I sampled it a few times at Lush before purchasing a small vial, and am now going for the 30ml bottle.

I'm going to jump in to defend my lovely friend, Tuca Tuca ;)I bought the massage bar of this with reservation after sniffing it in the shop. My friend swore by it for her legs, so although the scent wasn't really my cup of tea (seemed very floral or peppery or something), I bought it.As I passed the perfume area I swatched on tuca tuca fragrance on my wrist, and vanillary on the top side of my hand.We left and I drove her 30 mins home. As I started my drive back to my place, this gorgeous musky, vanilla scent grabbed my attention, and I spent the rest of my car journey sniffing my wrist at every opportunity.Since then I have been using the massage bar lightly every morning all over. Initially the smell isn't amazing...it's not horrible, but it needs to mix with your body chemistry.I guess this is the thing...your body chemistry and how it reacts with the tuca tuca. For me - it ends up smelling amazing. I seriously sit and sniff my skin constantly. It smells fresh, with hints of musk, vanilla, sandalwood.It's just amazing. Definitely get a sample and see how it smells on you before writing this one off based on negative reviews. I <3 it!

the thing is- anyone (imho), who says this perfume is a wreck, really doesn't have the nose for it...it is that simple....i quite understand the utter disgust people spread on this review site over this one, but (as usual), I kinda ignore the reviews written in a very subjective and kinda degrading way, thiogh I absolutely understand a common disliker of TT..on me TT is a gorgeous perfume, that screams JASMINE (just like other Lush monster-LUST), but there's so much going on, that (as with other Lush perfumes)I'm looking forward to ride the Gorilla rollercoaster of developing on my skin...a nuclear violet (just like the one in Stephen Jones's for CdG violet) emerges with a vulcanic, heated stems and vanilla cream...a weak but rich sandalwood and very prominent ylang-ylang...later I can smell some vetyver, but on a very low pitched stage....surely there must be some jasmin here, ..or....?hm...after an hour, this becomes a very sexy,feminine scent,a very victorian violet...and it is creamy and beautiful indeed...me gusto mucho...

Hmmmmm. I don't get it - I understand that fragrance is a very personal thing, but to actually claim that this smells like arse or induced a migraine is a tad on the hyperbolic side, if you ask me. This smells like violet candies, with some easy to pick out sandalwood and vetivert. Usually, I stay very far away from florals, but violet and rose are both weaknesses of mine. This is a pretty true violet, but it does not become powdery (which I hate) and the vanilla just floats by and thankfully does not linger on my skin. One of the best things about this fragrance is the staying power, which is about 8 hours for me, especially rare with violet based scents.It's very inexpensive, and I actually like the packaging, so I don't see a reason not to try it.If you like violet, try it. If you don't, don't. That's pretty easy.

Now I really think you must be obsessed with violet in order to appreciate this perfume. It is a violet bomb! There are some powdery vanilla and kinda sandalwood-type notes as well, but mostly the violet hits you like a ton of bricks. I grew up eating violet candies so this really makes me feel nostalgic and reminds me of eating violet candies. My husband thinks they smell like soap, but anyways... I really do like this, but keep in mind that it is really strong and can smell old lady-ish in large doses. Keep it light and you will smell like a rose! I mean, violet!

Another fragrance from Lush that seems to divide audiences. I quite like it because it is surprisingly edgy - especially in a Lush shop - and at the same time wearable as long as femininity is not the main criteria. I can sniff some lipstick-like violet and salty mimosa in it, together with vetyver, but in the end of the day, this is a fragrance that I perceive holistically and makes me want to sniff and sniff. It makes me think of some really dry, probably cracked red desert soil together with a salty breeze from a distance. There is something very earthy and grounding in it. This would make a good fragrance at a good price for fall, and I think I would wear it with a leather coat, and earthy colours combined with a turquoise or pastel blue scarf. It projects really well and the lasting power is very good. Unfortunately, the texture is too oily for my liking and I'm pretyy afraid of its dark, rusty colour on my skin.

I have problems with Lush as the overwhelming pong you get anywhere within a five-mile radius of a store just about makes my eyes water, however I like solid perfumes & this stuff was so cheap I could afford to bin it if I didn't like it when I got it ome (no chance of being able to smell what it was like in the shop of course).It's not that bad & I find that in solid form it stays fairly close to the skin. Maybe that's the answer to the problem of people who don't like the juice. The fragrance isn't that bad & the packaging is OK - cheap & basic but it does what it needs to do and as it's a solid there's no chance of unwanted spills.A pity that I had to choose between Yes & No for 'Would you buy this again' but would have preferred 'Perhaps!' It's not the greatest fragrance ever made but not bad considering the price - not everyone can afford Armani Prive.
Are you sure this product is discontinued?
