LUSH Love is described as a “flirtatious and fruity” fragrance that “dreams up images of past flings and future fondles“. It reminds me of lemonade and pancakes. Obviously, my life is very exciting.
Love opens as foody with lemon, apples and cinnamon. It reminds me of something I wouldn’t mind eating on pancakes. Love smells weirdly like breakfast to me. With time I get something camphoric in Love, I’ve experienced this cooling sensation with a few others LUSH fragrances. It’s in their florals. My guess is that it’s the rose, a minty rose. Or it could be ylang-ylang. OK, it’s both the rose and ylang-ylang adding a minty coolness to Love. And this mingles with the hot, spicy cinnamon. And because of the innocence and fire in this, I do see this as a literal “flirting” fragrance.
I have not tried Love in the solid perfume but for some reason I imagine it is better in the solid base. Maybe I want a “softer” version of this.
Notes listed include lemon, lemongrass, bergamot, apple, cinnamon, cassia, jasmine, rose, and ylang-ylang.
Give Love a try if you like citrus florals or spicy florals. Or if you like perfumes like LUSH 25:43, Saffron James Ipo, Not Soap Radio Island Hopping, Esscentual Alchemy Blue Lemonade, and/or Annick Goutal Eau d’Hadrien. I consider Love a unisex fragrance even though it’s a floral. The citrus and spice make it more unisex.
The scent is loud in the typical LUSH way. It has above average projection and average longevity.
LUSH Love retails for about $40 for the 1 oz. EDP. Other sizes and a solid are also available at LUSH.
Victoria’s Final EauPINION – Lemonade, breakfast and a bouquet of flowers. – Not an easy one for me to wear but like all LUSH scents, it has its fans.
