Review: LUSH Gorilla Perfume: Vanillary

LUSH Gorilla Perfume $9.95

What is it?
The sweet and sensual real vanilla and jasmine absolutes are supported by the burnt caramel-like scent of tonka bean in this delicious perfume. Vanillary is a grown-up gourmand. Its character really warms and develops on the skin and you'll get many compliments wearing it. -

Why did I buy this?
Even though I'm not a perfume girl, I really like solid perfumes I can drop in my purse in case I need it.  I've loved vanilla since I was buying oils from The Body Shop in high school.  While at the LUSH store in Herald Square, NYC Eric (the fab guy who helped me) had me blind smell all the fragrances.  Of course in the end, I choose vanilla. 

Should you sample this? 
I love this perfume!  It smells great and I get tons of compliments.  The solid perfume is not as long lasting as the spray but its not overwhelming either.  It also leaves a slight sheen where you apply it.  I think it goes with the warmth of the holiday season and its a great winter fragrance.  If you are looking for a sweet smelling, good enough to eat fragrance, you should sample this. 

LUSH can be purchased at retail locations or  If you stop by the Herald Square Store, ask Eric to help you - you'll have so much fun!

  1. Try the pure vanilla by LAVANILA at sephora. Essential oil based so it lasts a long time.
