Lush Solid Perfume

For Christmas I picked out Lush's Champagne Snow Showers solid perfume. A huge fan of solid fragrances I was looking forward to trying these. I knew I would love Champagne... and I did. What surprised me was that I really didn't like the others as well. Only Go Green might be a future buy.

Champagne Snow Showers is supposed to be cognac and citrus. A good combination. The scent is mainly citrus, and there is a hint of a deeper note that would be the cognac. It's very orange-y and nice. The fragrance solids are greasy as to blend well and they can even provide some moisture. I don't get a lot of sillage though, nor it is very long lasting. Solids, as the most concentrated perfume, usually are very strong and lasting. I know my Estee Lauder White Linen solid is a sillage monster and will last all day and more.

The Lush solids are great for portability. They can be tossed in a purse or car or drawer and will not leak or break, so thats helpful.

Here are the ingredients per Lush site:

Japan Wax (Rhus Succedanea), Perfume, Fair Trade Organic Cocoa Butter (Theobroma Cacao), Carnauba Wax (Copernicia Cerifera), Sweet Orange Oil (Citrus dulcis), Jojoba Oil (Simmondsia chinensis), Cognac Oil (Vitis Vinifera), Lime Oil (Citrus aurantifolia), *Citral, *Geraniol, *Limonene, *Linalool, *Benzyl Benzoate

Champagne Snow Showers( currently sold out online) and all the other fragrances sell for 11.95 for the small tin.
