This is genuinely exciting. I can't say that it smells *good*, or even appealing, but damn is it interesting. It opens with a crazy tar note that can only be described as an odor... it's kind of like an out door barbecue, or burning leaves, with a touch of rubber. But soon it mellows out and something creamy and smoky vanillic comes through, making it extremely wearable, if a little …Read more

Strange, I get virtually no jasmine from this. Smells generically "clean," "fresh," and is gone in about 20 minutes. Snore.

I'm typically not a fan of Creed, and this one is no exception. This is a weird one. At first application it smells virtually identical to Liz Claiborne's Curve for Men. Which is to say it set me up for major disappointment. Soapy, "masculine," generic, and boring, with a bit of citrus. But after a while it softens and becomes spicier and more interesting. I get a bit of …Read more

This smells pretty much like the bath bomb to me, except it has something greener to it. And I don't mean green apples. It reminds me of the leaves of roses. It's got a very acrid bite to it, and it kind of stings my nose. The apple note is kinda meh, to me. Smells more like a florist shop.

This is my very favorite Lush shower gel. I love it so much I even use it as a shampoo occasionally, because the lovely jasmine scent stays in your hair all day. It smells strange in the bottle, I think it's the honey note. But when used I don't get any honey, just really really nice jasmine.

This has a strange, fetid floral odor that my nose does not agree with at all. It's kind of heady, like cherry blossoms in INTENSE humidity... next to a river. It's evocative I guess, but at the same time it's fundamentally unpleasant.

This is my favorite bath bomb. It doesn't have much of a smell, but boy is it moisturizing! I even shave my legs in the tub when using it, and don't even have to use shaving cream, because it puts so much moisturizing oil into the water. It's great in the winter if your skin gets really dry and flaky like mine does.

BEAUTIFUL jasmine scent. Lathers decently, and moisturizes dry hair. The scent lingers all day. My only complaint is my bar fell apart very quickly, due to the large chunks of cocoa butter. It didn't last very long. :(

This was disappointing to me. I think I may have gotten a dud. The scent was nice on the bomb, but once it hit the water there was virtually no scent. It doesn't color the water, and the foam from the bubble bar particles or whatever was negligible. It basically did nothing... It fizzed very slowly. Wasn't moisturizing either.

I did order a bottle of the So White …

Not bad, though I prefer this as a shower gel to the perfume. It's a nice bergamot scent. I will say smelling it in the pot put me off a bit, as it has a strange... pee note. But when applied that's not present, thankfully. Haha. This works well on a boy. My boyfriend enjoys it.
