Ahh... I LOVE the smell of this. It drives me nearly wild. It's so feminine and yummy. Normally, I'm not a fan of jasmine, but this isn't a floral jasmine but a very sexy sort of sugary, sweet jasmine. I'm not sure what sort of fragrance combination this is, but I wish it came in fragrance form. Actually, I'm not certain whether this would really be nice as an actual perfume (not a complex enough scent for my nose), so perhaps it's just as well. In fact, the same scent crops up in their Alkmaar soap and one of the bath ballistics (Fairy Jasmine, maybe?). I paid £4.75 for it.
The packaging, as with all LUSH packaging, is unpractical to the point of idiocy. No matter. Just shake it with the container screwed closed. A lot of the powder will come out anyway. The powder itself is not at all chalky and drying, but smooth and silky and strangely... moisturizing. It leaves my skin very soft and smooth. As promised. I don't know how to describe it; it must be tried to be believed. It's got little bits of cocoa butter in it, which is actually kind of weird, but fun. They don't really do much, so I ignore them.
I find it a pain in the arse to apply this sort of thing everyday. I like to sprinkle sheets, or use it on days when the melancholies hit to make things special. Unfortunately, the scent doesn't last long, because I could sniff this marvelous fragrance for all eternity and never get tired of it.
