I mentioned in my January 2013 Smell Diary that I’m obsessed with this LUSH shower gel.
Flying Fox captures the raw, passionate love affair between honey and jasmine. This fragrance is skank at its best. The honey is animalic. The jasmine has indoles falling out of her cleavage. Ron from Notable Scents bought this on my recommendation and said, “It’s possible to be clean and dirty”. Yep, Flying Fox is squeaky clean raunch.
Flying Fox is very fragrant, almost too fragrant for someone that is a “perfume tester”. The scent lingers in my house and on my skin after a shower. It lingers for hours. And seriously you can smell it in the halls. Hope the neighbors like it!
The formula is basic. It lathers nicely and rinses easily. It’s not a moisturizing body wash. Flying Fox stands out for its perfume. Even my husband is hooked on using this stuff.
At one time this product was marketed for PMS. I’m so happy that dropped that BS and stopped isolating their male and post-menopausal market. This stuff sells because it smells good. Let’s keep it at that. Now it’s “Mood-Altering Aphrodisiac Honey Shower Gel“. I can roll with that.
I recommend this to any person that loves animalic florals or big, indolic verging on mothball jasmines.
Flying Fox comes in 3 sizes with prices ranging from about $10-$29 at LUSH.
