LUSH Breath Of God Solid Perfume

Breath of God is the latest release from LUSH's Gorilla perfume line, and was originally released as part of Lush’s offshoot B Never Too Busy to B Beautiful. It was inspired by Simon’s (the perfumer’s) travels to Tibet. There he smelled different incenses mixed with the fresh scent of the mountains and was totally blown away. He created a deep masculine scent and a feminine one and them mixed them together. Or so the story goes.

The smell is quite interesting, and it's very similar to the other Gorilla Perfumes. If you haven't smelled them, next time you're in a Lush store go check them out. The original notes of the fragrance are Neroli, lemon, melon, jasmine, rose, vetivert, sandalwood, cedarwood, amber, musk. I catch the lemon, rose and cedarwood the most. It's a strong incense scent, so you have to be careful when you apply. Too much could be a little too incense, as I found out the other day when I went to the doctor's office.

Per the story, this is supposed to be a combination of feminine and masculine scents, which it oddly is. I think a guy could wear this just as well as a woman can, it's very musky and a lot like a cologne. I'm a bit caught in the middle as to if I like it or don't. I think I strangely like the smell, it's something very unlike anything in my collection. The thing I don't like is the packaging. It's easy to ruin your perfume because of the way way you have to push it up or down, almost like a push pop. If you're not careful, it could get a bit messy.

Isn't the color pretty? I love the sky blue color. Overall, there are many different layers of this fragrance, and after much thought and a couple weeks of wear, I've become quite fond of this. Oddly enough, the more I wear it, the more I start to like the smell. And I do like I can take it with me, it fits nicely in my bag. It gives off a nice fresh scent that I like to apply to my wrists throughout the day.

You can purchase Breath of God at LUSH's website, or at any LUSH store near you. You can buy it in different forms, but the solid perfume sells for $9.95.
