As you know by now, LUSH is a polarizing brand, especially with their fragrances. It’s a style that you like or dislike. I wish it were that simple, but it isn’t. I find that I love a few LUSH fragrances and utterly despise a few. And then there are the rare <mehs>.
B Scent opens as a lavender lemon fennel. There’s something a little swampy about this citrus fennel – it isn’t as “bright” as the notes would make it seem. It’s sort of like boggy licorice. And like the majority of LUSH scents, it does a 360. The fragrance becomes a clean floral. What? From the top notes, I’d never expect for that to happen. The heart is a clean rose with a sheer jasmine that comes across as dusting powder. There’s a powdery baby wipe-ish ylang-ylang. The dry-down reminds me of traditional English lavender soaps and musk.
Like all of the LUSH perfumes, this one is polarizing. And for me, I don’t like it. It’s “off” to me and doesn’t transition smoothly. I don’t hate it but I really don’t like to wear it. Saying that, you could love it.
<insert relevant pic here> Sorry, there weren’t any.
Notes listed include lemon, bergamot, fennel, lavender, Damask rose, jasmine grandiflorum, ylang ylang, sandalwood and musk. Launch date 2011.
I think that B Scent is an interesting masculine. It’s a nice “eau de cologne” substitute. Saying that, anyone can wear this fragrance. It’s unisex. I’m just saying it’s a twist on the classic eau de cologne.
This scent has average projection and longevity.
Prices range from $18-$45 depending on size at LUSH.
Victoria’s Final EauPINION – A “weird” eau de cologne. It took me a few wears to process this one and then when I processed it, I realized I didn’t like it at all. Not one for me but like I said, it’s “clean” and makes a nice eau de cologne substitute.

Wow, I love this one – one of my favorite LUSH scents. To me it’s primarily rose, jasmine, lemon, and fennel. The perfect citrus rose! So funny how people perceive LUSH fragrances differently.

I just can’t with this one. And I tried. And I love rose. This one is so marshy and too much lavender for me.
This is why I enjoy fragrance, all of the different interpretations and impressions. And LUSH perfumes really bring this out of people 😉
I often think there’s something off about Lush fragrances (usually in the top notes) that keeps me from loving/wearing them. My favorite is the trashiest one (Lust)

Lust is my favorite too (which I know is a polarizing one).
Yeah, I sometimes wonder if it’s inexperience on their part or if it is their style and it’s intentional “offness”. And yeah, it’s always with the top notes.
