Rose Jam Bubbleroon was one of the first ever Lush products I truly fell in love with and it what started my love for the ‘rose jam’ scent when I was still fairly new to the world of Lush. If you’re unfamiliar with the concept of a ‘Bubbleroon’, it’s a term that Lush use to describe a bubble bar that’s comprised of two halves sandwiched together with a layer of moisturising butter. With a lot of Lush’s product and shop designs being influenced by Parisian markets, it’s fairly obvious that these products are based around macaroons.
The bubble bar’s design mimics that of a gorgeous rose flower, with glistening pink sparkles adorning the top. Naturally inside you’ll find Rose Absolute as well as Rose Oil which is what makes up the main component in the scent. Rose absolute is thought to be of a closer smell to fresh roses whereas the oil is said to be a little more delicate, but both come from the petals of the flower. Lush’s main source of rose comes from Turkey, where the flowers are handpicked at dawn, when they are the most fragrant.
Geranium Oil has a sweet floral fragrance that is very similar to Rose Oil and contains some of the same components, such as geraniol, linalool and citronellal, which means the two pair together well. Lastly, finishing off the iconic Rose Jam scent we have Lemon Oil which adds a subtle fruity kick, though not massively noticeable in the scent as a whole. Rose Jam is such a feel good fragrance, it really makes me happy!
Although Rose Jam is definitely big enough to get two or three baths out of it, I have no control so I used the whole thing!
Once crumbled under the running water, Rose Jam Bubbleroon produces such soft bubbles which float delicately atop vibrant pink bath water. The water itself feels really creamy thanks to the Cocoa and Shea Butter disc in the middle of the two bubble bar halves and if you look really closely at the water, you’ll notice tiny glimmering specks of glitter dancing beneath the surface.
Throughout my bath I could still smell the beautiful scent in the air, which only helped me relax even more.
After I was done bathing I stepped out to wonderfully soft and nourished skin. Although I sadly didn’t really notice much of a scent lingering over me, which was strange compared to how potent it was before. All in all, Rose Jam Bubbleroon is a fab product that holds a special place in my heart. I hope Lush never discontinue it!
