    Default What scented products do you wish they'd release as perfumes?

    I was using some Lush 'Tramp' shower gel this morning. Wow. Gorgeous green, earthy patchouli and oakmoss. (Surprising; Lush usually handles patchouli with a really heavy hand - I can't stand Karma, which really overdoes the elderly oranges note.) I got to thinking, while slathering on some NARS Body Glow monoi oil, which also smells fabulous - I wish there was a way I could smell like these lovely things all day. Which products do you think should be turned into perfumes?

    Heh - I saw that! I suppose the terrifying consumer research thing explains why the fabric softeners I buy *never* smell of what the label says. (Lily of the valley, violets, anyone? It's such a shame when you get the lid off, and just get a blast of...fabric softener smell.)

    That said, I do sometimes wear room sprays...the Diptyque Gardenia room spray is just gorgeous, and the Durance Cedre is also lovely. I'm now extremely ashamed.

    Let us hold our heads up, Lady - I do the same thing with a CK linen spray! :bounce:

    Ooooh great topic! Mine is Crabtree and Evelyn Hand Therapy in Lavender. I know C&E have a Lavender perfume but it's nothing like the Hand Therapy - the hand cream version is powdery, light and clean, like a lavender crystal, without a hint of "grandmotherly" lavender. The Lavender perfume smells like, well, a grandma. They're completely different to my nose.

    Also, nivea body moisturiser - the old formulation! Again, it's fresh and clean. Would love to wear the EDT (EDP might be a bit much!).

    Edit: I just read the Chandler Burr article about the new Lavender Febreze and I think it articulates the difference I was trying to explain between the lavender I want and the lavender I most often smell - it's the difference between dead and dried, and vibrant and alive. I agree 100% with the article when it says now is a fantastic time for lavender - I can really feel the new incarnations of lavender having a huge resergence!

    I know one thing I like the smell of -- Ojon hair restorative. It's some kind of tropical nut(?) butter rendered in wooden containers. It's nutty, woody, smoky, and slightly burnt. Anybody else like it?
    Please, spritz responsibly.

    Shower to Shower Body Powder - a very fresh fragrance that becomes ever so slightly spicy. I really love the scent.

    Crabtree & Evelyn Jojoba Soaps - the ones shaped like seashells. They smell amazing to me. I want to crawl inside one.

    OH F%#K YEAH!! I love that stuff so much!

    I adore all the Ojon products I've tried. I'd use the conditioner as body lotion but it's really expensive. Also, the Ojon Conditioning Serum is the bomb. Each of the scents is slightly different, but I want all three scents as perfumes or scented body creams!!

    A lot of people on MUA hate the scent, and some liken it to a wet ashtray. I think they're crazy, because it's one of the best scents I've ever tried. I use the restorative hair treatment twice a week.

    I wish it was cheaper, though. A five-ounce tub of the Restorative costs $55 on Sephora, the Conditioning serum is frikkin' $24, and an 8-ounce tube of the conditioner is $22. OMG... I just noticed that they have a 34-OUNCE container of the conditioner and I'm saaaalivating. Unreal. I'll have to check qvc and see if their prices are any better.

    If Lush ever made a fragrance based on Silky Underwear dusting powder/Alkmar soap and one based on Honey I Washed the Kids soap...I would die a happy, and sweetly scented, girl. Those two scents would make amazing comfort scents!

    There is a Spanish brand air refreshener called Mi Casa & their
    Intense Vanilla scent is an STRANGELY addictive blend of vanilla &
    Band-Aids. I love it, I would definitely wear it as a bed-time scent

    HEE! I love the smell of Band-Aids, probably because I associate them with getting childhood hugs from my parents after I hurt myself. Plus they're just fun! I have some Spongebob ones that I keep at work (office) for when paper cuts strike Of course...on the ambulance we have a huge array of bandaging options, but I think we keep some band-aids in there too.

    Remember being a little kid and getting into the box of band-aids and just covering yourself in about a dozen of them? HEE!

    rue - from my garden.
    It is a great scent. I love the scent, color, and shape of rue leaf.
    I never see it incorporated into any products, even though there are references to it in (pre-modern) perfume recipes.

    Same w/ sasaparilla, but there is sasaparilla hard candy.

    Note in the description of Bless:
    (from boisdejasmin)
    There are two other fragrances that were featured as a part of the limited edition release for Colette. Design duo Désirée Heiss and Inès Kaag of Bless and Marc Buxton (the nose behind CdG Cologne, #2, #3 and Cartier Pasha) worked together to recreate the scents of Nutella, tea, shampoo, and spices of their childhood memories. The notes include: cardamom, cypress, ginger, geranium, thyme, maté absolute and a touch of “shortbread accord.”

    I am not familiar w/ Nutella, but I have fallen in love w/ the nutty cardamom flavor and I feel truly blessed when wearing this.

    They did release HIWTK and Silky Underwear as limited edition scents to members of the Lush international forum. From time to time someone sells them on eBay. I don't recall whether Alkmar has been done though.

    I'd love to see BURN's Sugar Pine Balsam candle released as a fragrance.

    Oh my God, I despise the smell of band-aids!! I actually hold my breath when I open the drawer that I keep them in. The thought of the smell almost makes me gag. Funny, huh?

    Oh no! Isn't that funny how scents can provoke such different reactions in people?

    I'd give you some 4x4 gauze pads and some medical tape for the inadvertent scrapes, since the medical tape doesn't have much of a smell...although if you hate the smell of sticking plasters that much, I bet you already have some gauze and tape (or other improvised measures) should the need arise.

    That glue they let small kids use at school (or at least, they did when I was a kid which, let's face it, is a long time ago now!). It smells gorgeous, like almonds.
