Out of the four flower-themed, note-containing bath bombs that Lush released for this year’s Mother’s Day, the one that was calling my name the most was Jasmine Flower. I’m a big Jasmine fan so naturally, I was excited to use this one.
Like the other flower bath bombs, Jasmine Flower is designed around a real jasmine flower. Jasmine flowers range in shapes but are most commonly white and star-like, with green leaves surrounding them, explaining the colour choices in this product. Jasmines have a strong and sensual scent, and have long been considered an aphrodisiac and an anti-depressant due to its aroma.
Although Jasmine Flower contains Lavender, Chamomile, Tagetes and Tangerine Oils, it’s main fragrance note comes from the inclusion of Jasmine in a powdered form. It’s a strong, aromatic fragrance, yet there’s something delicate about it. It’s floral, it’s warming and it’s somewhat fruity, with green, herbaceous undertones. If like me, you’re a fan of Jasmine, then you’ll truly love this, but if you’re not, then perhaps it’s not for you. Jasmine is very much like marmite, people either love it, or they hate it. I found that it evoked feelings of serenity and calmness, and although yes Jasmine is known for it’s ability to promote sensual intimacy, it’s nothing like how sweet and seductive it is in Lust Perfume.
Once placed in the water, it’s beautiful scent filled the entire room which was almost intoxicating. A fairly fast fizzer, the water quickly turned the same shade of green as the bath bomb’s base, with patterns of lighter greens and whites shooting away from the fizzing ballistic. Due to added Cream Of Tartar in the white flower section, it fizzes a lot slower than the green part, retaining it’s pretty shape a little longer. The end result in my bath tub was a cloudy green water that hid my hands when they were submerged. I’d say the colour suits the product and scent well and I found myself feeling mellow and grounded.
Sadly, after a while I found that the scent wore off slightly the longer I was soaking, but I was happy to find that it left a subtle, more powdery trace on my skin afterwards. A lot of the ingredients that Jasmine Flower contains are very soothing, including the Jasmine Powder, so if you were suffering from any skin irritations then this would make a good bathing companion. On another note, you can actually see the Jasmine Powder floating around your tub! Though that does mean you’ll have to give it a rinse down when you’re finished.
I’d love to see more products in this scent, I think it would be lovely in a hair product specifically, perhaps maybe a conditioner? Anyhow, I loved Jasmine Flower and I definitely recommend picking one up!
