I think what you’re good at, is what you like to do. I do believe that I’m good at jasmine. I wanted to do a really, really sexy, dirty, lustful fragrance and that’s what I’ve done. I’m very happy with it! I’d done fragrances like that before, but I’d never had the nerve to let them be. British people have a problem with sexy fragrances; there’s always this feeling of having to dress the thing up in a frock and put a bonnet on it. This time, I just went all the way. – Mark Constantine
Lust is a perfume that’s very much like Marmite. You either love it, or you hate it. It actually surprises me that people can’t stand the scent of Lust, or of jasmine itself, because I absolutely adore it and Lust is one of my favourite perfumes ever.
The Jasmine is the main scent of this perfume. Jasmine has a very heady and sensual aroma which intoxicates your mind and also has aphrodisiac qualities. The Rose and Ylang Ylang add sweet floral notes whilst the Sandalwood gives the fragrance warmth and earthiness. It’s a really rich and intoxicatingly sweet seductive scent and arguably one of Lush’s most powerful, that’s why I love it so much.
Wearing Lust makes me feel empowered and sexy, yet sophisticated, and because of this it really gives me a big confidence boost. Whenever I wear Lust I always get people asking me what it is or making comments about it. It’s said that if you go out wearing Lust you’ll be sure to gain an admirer or two!
It’s certainly not a perfume you can hide. It’s probably one of Lush’s strongest perfumes and it has great staying power perfect for long days as it will stay with you on your skin well into the night.
I’d say that this perfume is definitely wearable throughout the year, it works really well in Autumn and Winter for the pure richness of it, but also because of the floral side it works equally as well when the climate is warmer. Though I’d happily wear it whenever!
Because of the red colouring of Lust, try not to spritz it too close to light coloured clothing – as it does have a tendency to stain ever so slightly on whites, but of course it’s easily washed out.
If you’ve never experienced Lust before, you need to. Just be prepared for a strong reaction!
