Review: Lush Gorilla Perfume - Flower's Barrow

Flower's Barrow (source)
Flower's Barrow is my second fragrance from the new Lush Gorilla Perfume collection. You can read my review of the first one (Sikkim Girls) HERE
''A nostalgic perfume inspired by the stories of an Iron Age hillfort, taken over by Romans who are now said to haunt the place known as Flower's Barrow. The ancient ruins sunk into the sea, and nettles and brambles have taken over the land. Sage and thyme pull you back through the ages to times gone by. Ripe, bursting blackcurrant and sweet geranium are the tang of sea air and the wild plants that entwine against ancient stone in a leafy embrace.'' (Lush USA)
Ingredients: DRF Alcohol, Perfume, Geranium Oil, Rose Absolute, Blackcurrant Absolute, Roman Chamomile Oil, Citronellol, *Citral, *Geraniol, *Limonene, *Linalool, *Eugenol, *Farnesol. (*occurs naturally in essential oils)

Flower's Barrow je moj drugi vonj iz Lusheve Gorilla Perfume kolekcije. Oceno prvega parfuma (Sikkim Girls) lahko preberete TUKAJ
''Govori se, da je nad zalivom Lulworth nekoč stala utrdba iz železne dobe, katero so zasedli Rimljani. Simon se je odpravil po strmem hribu navzgor, da bi si pobližje ogledal in raziskal ta magičen kraj (pri tem se je moral spretno izmikati eksplozivom, ki jih je tukaj uporabilo ministrstvo za obrambo Velike Britanije). Antična utrdba se je potopila v morje in mesto, kjer je nekoč stala, je zapolnilo grmičevje. Naš Gorila je poskušal atmosfero tega magičnega kraja dočarati s tem spiritualnim parfumom iz geranije, črnega ribeza in žajblja.'' (Lush SI)
LUSH Gorilla Perfume in Flower's Barrow

What's interesting about these Lush perfumes is what I think about them when I sniff them from the bottle directly and how the scent developes once applied to the skin. It's like day and night. If I went to the store I probably wouldn't buy this scent. It reminded me of a lady version of a man's cologne at first: nothing special and nothing I would love to wear on my skin. But I did try it on and a couple of sniffs later.. I'm in love with it. Geranium with just a hint of rose, sage and thyme with a little bit of black currant. Flower's Barrow is a sweet (but not too much) herbal scent, it's spicy yet calming. I cannot say how much I adore its uniqueness and herbal touch. I like to apply it at evenings, before going to bed - just to be comforted by this beautiful scent. If you're tempted to buy one of Lush Gorilla perfumes, I strongly suggest you try it out on your skin first. What you smell directly from the bottle is not the true essence of the perfume... 

Lushevi parfumi so zelo zanimivi, saj se vonj parfuma direktno iz stekleničke precej razlikuje od vonja, ko parfum na koži razvije svojo pravo aromo. V trgovini se za ta vonj najverjetneje ne bi odločila: na prvi voh me je spominjal na rahlo 'poženščeno' verzijo moške kolonjske vodice. Vonj ni bil prav nič poseben in vsekakor ne takšen, ki bi ga želela nositi. Pa sem ga poskusila. In se naravnost zatreskala vanj. Geranija s pridihom vrtnice, žajbelj in timijan s kančkom črnega ribeza. Flower's Barrow je sladek (a ne preveč) zeliščni vonj, ki si ga na kožo rada nanesem zvečer pred spanjem, saj me čudovit vonj pomirja. Ob morebitnem nakupu Lushevih parfumov (ali katerikolih drugih parfumov) vam toplo priporočam, da jih najprej preizkusite na svoji koži. Vonj, ki ga vonjate direktno iz stekleničke pač ne odraža pravega vonja, ki se razvije ob stiku s kožo. 

You can buy Flower's Barrow perfume in Lush stores from ~ $19.95/ £14.00/ €17.45. Prices vary from country to country.
