    What a weird coincidence. I bought the solid perfume last year and wore it once. I'm finally wearing it again today. It's very strange. I don't detect any difference in the formula between spray and solid and I assume the solid is cheaper because it's quite small. It has a hideous blue color to it! Very concentrated despite the stick's smallness.

    This is one on which I go back and forth. This is due mostly to the fact that it never smells the same on me twice in a row. Sometimes it comes off brilliantly while other times there's just something that seems a little off. Definitely not a blind buy.
    I don't have a signature fragrance. My signature changes a little bit every day, why shouldn't my fragrance?

    Regarding the difference between spray and perfume, as Monkeybars said, the formula seems to be the same. However, it behaves somewhat differently on my skin. The spray gives the full range of notes, the stick seems to stress the vetiver-fresh part in regular circumstances, and the smoky part when it's very warm, or I'm sweating.

    As also pointed out, the stick is cheaper because it's much smaller. But I haven't finished it, so I don't know what the relation is between that and the perfume, if the perfume really contains 3 times as much frag than the solid. So in sum I'd say the solid is good and worth purchasing, especially if you just want to try. But check it under different conditions (cold/warm) to see if and how the profile changes.

    I've been meaning to try this one out for so long. I love the name, mainly. Saying I'm wearing "Breath of God" just sounds cool. I'll have to see if I can't find a sample somewhere.

    I own a bottle of this and, interestingly, don't get the biological rot that everyone seems to note. Instead, BoG--to me--is menthol melon + violet amber. Very good nonetheless.

    Looking back on this post I can only say, "Dammit! Why didn't I take my own advice?!"


    I ended up goind blind on it and HATED it. It smelled so much like an open can of Skoal Mint chewing tobacco ("dip" as it's called) I almost found it nauseating. It definitely did not work for me. My memory's a little vague at this point, but I seem to also remember a cigarette butt thing going on, some shoe polish, a fire, and something that reminded me of a garage.

    It's a very weird fragrance. And for some reason I didn't get any of the things that made it sound so good in some of the reviews--or maybe I wasn't patient enough with it. Kinda wish I saved at least a sample of it before selling it, as I'd like to revisit it for curiosity's sake. Still, this was a complete bust.

    I'm interested in the oil part called EXHALE, the dark-woody part (as they say it) of Breath of God. Could someone define to me? It is more a patchouly scent? a vetiver one? Thanks!

    Exhale is an incense vetiver - not really patch but sort of temple incense and fresh-rooty vetiver. Very good on its own, but in a way more traditional. It has none of the compelling weirdness of BoG, the synthetic feel, the artificial candy flavor-incense smoke juxtaposition that make BoG unique.

    Here in the US, Exhale is only available in oil form from the Lush website.

    I absolutely loath it. I smell rotting veg like God forgot to clean his teeth from about three days ago and has been eating too many sweeties after a fag riddled night out. Sorry all fans.

    not many frags have made me gag. This is one. Secretions Magnifique is the other.

    This is so strong and pungent. And of course the stuff didnt want to be scrubbed off easily. My skin was raw trying to get it off.

    The tuttifrutti effluvia of Lush stores comes from their cacophonous soaps and bubblebombs. The frags, if one can manage to smell them in that olfactory pollution, are nice.

    Lol, when i first smelled BOG,

    I was sooo surprised something so weird exists, it gave me sensation of air coming from himalaya mountain to my nose:-) , this smelled so like forest cold air, then a bit of meditative quality , but so unusual, i was sniffing the bottle for days before i kind of get it....its blue green, grey combo of colours

    Now i find it too masculine to wear and a bit too strong, it projects like mad!:-)

    If i were a man i would wear it . I was very impressed 1 st time i tried it....just not so anymore, i loved Karma later more!!...i know all natural perfumes can not be so strong:-) but well done for lush this is unusual font style their perfumes write in! :-) they definitely are the only one there who make perfumes this way?

    I agree. It's 10 times stronger than a Bath and Bodyworks. I tried testing some fragrances and they have the shot glasses with the paper in the bottom, but all it takes is being in that store for 5 or 10 minutes and your nose is done. I guess you could always go back and forth between Starbuck's and Lush.

    Well after another full wearing, it simply doesn't smell like a personal fragrance to me. It smells like a high-end cleaner. I think it's all that menthol or wintergreen. Mixed with the smoky cade and incense, it just comes off like a smell from some big bottle under the sink.

    Eventually got to sample it and didn't like it at all. If given to me for free, I would turn around and sell it.

    Did you mention it puts people off going in?
    Or were you suggesting it as a new scent range?

    Have to throw in my 2 cents here, and say that I'm among those who love it.

    It's just one of those very polarizing sorts of frags where everyone will have to decide for themselves, I think.

    Inexpensive samples available from Lush, and on hand at all of their stores as I understand.
