Lush 1000 Kisses Deep Eau de Parfum
Advantages: Unusual and long lasting
I really like Lush and I normally love most of their perfumes. I tend to buy them in solid form however as I find that they are much cheaper this way and it means that I can experiment with buying a few at a time whereas with the spray bottles being more expensive I could only really afford to buy one at a time.
I also just find the solid sticks of perfume to be really easy and convenient to use. I wouldn't wear them for a big night out but they are great for having in my handbag or in the glove compartment of my car and being able to just dab some on my skin whenever I like. If I end up loving a particular fragrance then I buy the spray bottle and the solid perfume stick just helps to intensify the fragrance and give it more longevity.
1000 kisses deep is a fairly newish perfume for me personally that my local store have only just got in not so long ago. I'm not sure if this means it is a pretty new fragrance or else my store is just really slow at stocking the perfumes but it is one that I have decided I really like and I am toying with buying the perfume spray bottle after originally buying solid perfume stick.
The solid perfume stick comes in a little black stick with an orange coloured solid perfume and costs £6. I really am a big fan of the solid sticks as I find that it is the best way to experience the perfume without going to the cost of buying the bottle of perfume. I also think they are pretty good quality and they last for ages whereas a little sample bottle costs £2.50 and is gone with one or two uses and you don't get the chance to really experience the fragrance enough to know if you really like it enough to buy it.
1000 kisses deep is a more unusual perfume than most of the ones that I smell. It has mandarin, labdanum, myrrh, musk and something called osmanthus. I wasn't sure what osmanthus was but apparently it is a shrub from the Himalayas and is also known as fragrant olive and it produces a floral absolute with green and fruity notes. Whatever it is when it is combined with the rest of the smells in this perfume it helps to make it a richer and more complex smelling perfume than most of the ones available especially at this price point.
The fragrance is hard to describe as it isn't just one thing. It is citrusy but it is also musky and floral all at the same time. It doesn't smell too flowery and girly and the mandarin gives it a lighter smell than it would have had otherwise. The floral notes are lovely as they aren't as delicate and sweet as some other perfumes and I always love the smell of mandarin.
It smells a lot more expensive than what I paid for it and the quality of the solid stick is absolutely top notch.
I like to rub the stick on the pulse points of my neck and wrist and also on my arm just where the inside of my elbow is. I find that the scent immediately combines with the heat of my body and releases the fragrance. It is one of the more stronger smelling Lush solid perfumes at least on my skin and it lasts a good while. Sometimes with the solid perfumes they can be too subtle where no one else can really smell them but with this one I have worn it and other people have asked what the lovely smell is.
I do need to reapply the perfume throughout the day as it does tend to fade a little after a few hours but this is one of the beauties of the solid perfume as it is so easy to just rub some more on and I can put it in the smallest of my handbags without it taking up too much room.
Because I have found this to be such a lovely and unique smelling perfume I have been really tempted to treat myself to the perfume spay which costs £24.00. I usually only save this for my absolute favourites which I am sure this is destined to become. £24 is not expensive for a perfume of this quality so I will probably end up buying it at the weekend when I am in town. I would recommend this perfume to anyone who is looking for something that is just a little bit different from all the other perfumes that are available and for people who are wanting to try it then get yourself the solid stick first as it is a great way of experiencing the smell without having to pay lots of money first.
Summary: A really lovely perfume from Lush
