A few weeks ago I went on a day trip to Belfast to wander around its city centre and see whats new in all the stores at Victoria Square. I could not come back without stopping by Lush! I have read and heard so many great things about their products but never really got to try them, I felt like I was missing out.
Although I had my eye on a couple of their products after reading so many blogposts online, I really wanted to visit their store and experience all their stuff for myself. I can’t continue this post without telling you how much of a sensorial experience the store was… before I even reached the doors, I was welcomed by a beautiful mixture of scents and was instantly drawn to the many bath bombs they had on display in the most creative ways. It was difficult to decide on which products to get but I came back with a couple of goodies including this perfume.
Sun has a wonderful blend of very natural notes of orange and just the right notes of sandalwood, making it a very refreshing and slightly sweet fragrance. It really reminds me of a sunny summer day and takes me back to the random moments I find myself raising my head with eyes closed to soak as much sun as I can.
The packaging is something to talk about too, it makes me feel like I own a little magic potion that releases sunshine anytime I want. I do have to say, the aroma does not last so long, just a couple of hours, I assume this could be the result of the highly natural mixture of ingredients but I think its a bit of a bummer as it has become my favourite summer scent… I guess I´ll have to restock!
