In the quiet seaside town of Poole, England, father and son team Mark and Simon Constantine work as a dynamic, creative force, inventing all new perfumes that defy scent expectations. Inspired by art, music, memories, people and stories, each perfume tells a tale and evokes emotion. Gorilla Perfume is an antidote to boring, mass-market scents, and a movement to get people excited about good quality fragrance. ~ LUSH
Recently I was treated to a exotic sensory evening hosted by LUSH SA to launch their new range of LUSH Gorilla Perfumes. I thought I would share a few of the photographs I took during our dramatic olfactory experience .
Hellstone ~ Heavy joboba and beeswax, anointing the skin with a sensual, warm undertone.
Sun – Vibrant, zesty orange, tangy tangerine and mimosa fizz recline atop sultry sandalwood for a true taste of the Sun. (This was my favourite!)
Sikkim Girls ~ The frangipani, jasmine, vanilla and tuberose conjure up exotic climes and heady possibilities.
Euphoria ~ Essential oils including clary sage, grapefruit, lime and neroli to make a scent that is light, clarifying and expanding.
Flowers Barrow ~ 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.
A big thank you to Katie and the LUSH V&A crew for a wonderfully fun evening! If you would like to find out more about the Gorilla Perfumes I encourage you to pop in to the V&A Waterfront store and experience them for yourself!
