What? I can’t hear you! I’m wearing LUSH Lust and it’s as loud as a monster truck derby. There’s nothing subtle about Lust, a sweet and heady floral. It’s jasmine all up in ‘yo face. You may want to save this one for outdoors or open arenas 😉
So, Lust is a vroom, vroom, rev up you engines kind of jasmine. It opens up loudly with gasoline like fumes that remind me of moth balls. Lust stays jasmine and it stays loud for quite sometime. Lust walks into the room with her glossy black, helmet-like bob before you do. She orders a drink for herself and you, winks at every person in the joint, all before you’ve even had a chance to get through the door! LUSH Lust is one of the sweetest florals that I have ever worn. It isn’t gourmand or anything like that (if you want candy jasmine, try LUSH Vanillary). Lust turned up the natural sweetness of white florals…to 11. And you better like that because Lust wears and wears.
I can’t handle Lust daily, not even weekly, it’s that loud. But, I do like it because it’s a raunchy jasmine, “a 1920’s jazz club in a shady side of town and you aren’t supposed to be there” kind of jasmine. My husband loves Lust, but he has a very high tolerance for loud fragrances and apparently sweet, heady florals. And he seems to like natural scents because they are loud and rugged enough for him. Not to give too much info, I get a response when I wear Lust so maybe LUSH got the name right with this one.
Notes listed include jasmine, ylang ylang, rose, vanilla, and sandalwood.
Give LUSH Lust a try if you like jasmine. And not “jasmine tea” or anything subtle or watered down. You have to like raunchy florals to tolerate Lust. This one is loud and there’s nothing subtle to it. You have to like jasmine. I warned you.
The 1 oz. EDP retails for $32.95. A solid perfume is also available. Lust can be purchased at LUSH.
