"You smell kinda pretty! Wanna Smell me ?"
- Johnny Bravo
I have always thought of Lush as more of a perfume house than a skin care company, even though they only really sell a couple of perfumes. Some of the Lush things I wish were perfume:
Silky Underwear (neat to know they released at least a few)
Reincarnate (though how you'd simulate the smell of rhassoul mud, I don't know)
The okra conditioner that they tragically discontinued
That said, I love Karma soap, and Karma Kream, and Karma shampoo bars, and Karma everything, but Karma perfume is kind of a letdown from the warm aesthetic perfection of the bath products. Maybe I should just be glad for the bath products.
Has anyone ever smelled Turkish black soap? Luckyscent sells a version - it's the texture and color of soft, sticky toffee and has a haunting, slightly bitter herbal smell that I can't get enough of. It smells a bit like Lush Ayesha facial mask. I'd totally wear it as perfume.
Also - Korean barley tea.
Jasmine Mist Tea by Mighty Leaf Tea Co.
Nothing out in the fragrance world quite like it!
The smell of buttered popcorn! j/k
I can't do Karma. I've tried it and something about it makes me feel ill. Shame really.
My daughter has always wanted a fragrance version of Dove soap - and we found it today. Madini oil - Henna.

but the key to failure is trying to please everybody."
Bain de Soleil orange tanning gel from the 70's smelled heavenly and the only scents that come close are JM French Lime Blossom and DG Feminine.
Algemarin bright blue bubblebath has a rosemary and sage vibe to it that I would love to find in a fragrance.
Lush's Sultana soap smells unique and lovely but they don't offer anything else in that fragrance.
and Cusson's Imperial Leather soap. I would love to find a fragrance that smells like that. They made one years ago but it's too hard to find.
Love and Light,
I have a couple I wish to God they would release as perfume.
1. Clarins Body Shaping cream fragrance- I have loved this smell for yonks - I have actually written to Clarins ( back in the 'old days when all I had was pen and paper ) and emailed them about it and told Clarins SAs to pass it on ...
My son loves this too- the smell takes him back to when he was little and Mommy slathered herself everywhere with this stuff - for fragrance reasons as well as for the actual reason behind the product.
2.Olay Vanilla Indulgence body soap - fab vanilla
Petty small minded people have no place in my life.
Avon series India - they were fantastic smelling hair products. Soft spice plus somethinmg else that I cannot identify but I wish there was such a fragrance.
I received a Morrocan Amber candle by Nest Fragrances at Christmas. It smells really yummy and reminds me of ginger biscuits. The box says it contains amber, patchouli, heliotrope, bergamot and eucalyptus. Unfortunately Nest Fragrances only make home fragrances. I would really like to find a perfume that smells like this candle.
Nuxe dry oil. I can't believe they haven't been bombarded with requests to make this a perfume. I can't remember what the notes are supposed to be apart from jasmine, chamomile and lemon but the smell is out of this world. To me it's the smell of a mediterranean summer and do I wear it as scent when it's hot. It makes me go cross eyed with bliss !
I'd love to see perfume versions of Dove's soap and the LDB body lotion. I love the clean and dry feel to Dove's soap (are there white lilys involved?) and the LDB scent always reminds me of being a child, playing dress up at my grandmothers make up table.
I'm just crazy for the Peaceful Patchouli scent of Kiss My Face lotion, hand soap, deodorant. It's BEAUTIFUL!
I wish Soap and Glory made an EDP of their Girligo Body Mist. It's gorgeous! I own a bottle of the moisturiser but I never use it because a) it doesn't last the day, and b) it interferes with my actual perfumes. So, yes, Girligo EDP, please, if anybody from Soap and Glory happens upon this!
Foolish as it sounds, plain and affordable body spray 8x4 Wave for Men smells like a way improved, much greener and much more crisp, fresh version of Boss Bottled for Men, so of course its possible perfume version would be a treat for me
I always seem to fall in love with shampoo smells. My favorites are the old Gee Your Hair Smells Terrific which smells like a classic floral-chypre to me, Body on Tap, which smells a lot like hops; lush, earthy and green, and Clairol's original green Herbal Essences, another glorious green scent. I've read that Cacharel's Eau d'Eden is similar but I've yet to run across it. Pantene's new line smells wonderful and vaguely familiar. It must be inspired by a popular fragrance, but I just can't put my finger on it.
Science is not only compatible with spirituality, it is a profound source of spirituality. When we recognize our place in an immensity of light-years and in the passage of ages, when we grasp the intricacy, beauty, and subtlety of life, then that soaring feeling, that sense of elation and humility combined, is surely spiritual. ..Carl Sagan
CREED Cocktail de Pivoines Candle this smells so damn good , you have to sniff it sometime, that and pumpkin pie.
It's a cheapie but I'd be the first in line if they released it in a EDT form.
Old Spice Matterhorn.
Fruity fresh mint. The body spray I'm proud to own.
Nesti Dante "Dolce Vivare" Sardegna soap smells terrific and I would wear a
scent that smells like this in a heartbeat.
A woman without perfume is like a flower without a scent.

"It's now very common to hear people say "I'm rather offended by that." As if that gives them certain rights. It's actually nothing more than a whine. 'I find that offensive.' It has no meaning; it has no purpose; it has no reason to be respected as a phrase. 'I am offended by that.' Well so fucking what." - Stephen Fry
I just started ordering Yves Rocher products. I used to buy on vacations and just Googled and found out it's available here and still a good buy. The deodorant, Hamamélis is fresh and lovely. It would be great as a perfume if it were stronger. As a deodorant, no conflict with my perfumes. I also bought Tradition de Hammam balm. It smells of neroli which I love. No orange, but a bit of chamomile as well. Would love this as a body spray. It's great as a lotion.
Lush Cosmetic Lad Moisturiser - it smells like a Terry's Chocolate Orange.

Well, that Kinky Curly Curling Custard hair gel is the best vanilla I own, oddly. It is crazy sweet smelling at first but actually dries down as it dries, like a perfume, to a deep delicious vanilla. I am not sure I'd wear it as a perfume, but sure love the way it smells.
I like the Ojon smell previously mentioned too, but just go sniff that at the beauty supply, my hair's not in bad shape so can't justify the expense.
Body Shop's Moringa Shower Gel is beautiful - the body butter isn't as nice of a smell, I'd hope if they ever make a spray it's more like the body wash. Moringa must be orange blossom or something just like it, this body wash smells like orange blossom (not oranges) and honey, very light and gorgeous.
The smell of the box where I keep my perfumes I'd like to bottle, somehow the traces of all of those smells together with the wood makes me happy every time I open it. It seems like it would be a muddled mess of awful but no, it's great.
I'd really enjoy a Lee Stafford fragrance that smells like his hair products, unlike the pink fragrance and flankers.
Korres Juniper and Rum shower gel. Remarkably cool combination of spice, rum, and juniper wood. I would pay well for an EdT. Hell, I'd like to get more of the gel itself as I'm down to my last 1.5 bottles and it's discontinued.
Yves St. Laurent Live Jazz
Comme des Garcons Vettiveru
Lubin Vetiver Itasca

Hawaiian Tropic suntan lotion.
I wish they would release a perfume that smelled like the Dove brand shampoo and conditioner they sell in Italy. When I lived in Italy everyone used to tell me they loved my perfume, but I finally figured out it was the smell of my hair not my perfume that everyone loved!
