Gorilla Perfume's Dirty is surprisingly clean-smelling4:07 PM
I showed my boyfriend my blog this morning (
All products are unisex, but have maybe a more masculine slant in their packaging and obviously in their shaving cream concept.
They are designed to be used in succession, with the individual product scent layering the create the Dirty fragrance (also sold in solid fragrance form). Separately, the scents aren't as strong as regular Lush products, and will sit comfortably under a true perfume.
I've enjoyed using the Body Spray as an after gym refresher so I don't smell on the bus ride home to wash at home, or as a nice air pong defuser as our apartment tends to get a little musty. Boyfriend has been using it in the morning in place of a regular cologne. The label recommends using it as 'an Italian shower' - that is, to spray allover instead of an actual shower. Not too sure I like smelly guys being actively encouraged to skip their morning shower though!
It is a very clean, sports inspired fragrance, bright citrus with a hint of mint and herbal grass. Totally inoffensive and not at all cheap smelling like other lower priced sprays.
Boyfriend normally uses a Nivea or Gillette shaving foam, so the Shaving Cream was a little different for him. He's reported that it smooths on well, if not a little thick so he has to rinse the razor after every pass.
His skin is quite sensitive, but hasn't had any reaction or broken out. I also think there has been a significant reduction in the dryness and irritation seen on his skin, but this could also be attributed to the introduction of a serum to his routine. It's a light lavender and sandalwood scent.
Boyfriend has also added the Hair Styling Cream to his daily routine and reports that it's "good" and "it works". Man of many words, Boyfriend. The oakmoss, sandalwood and neroli scent really revs up a neck-nuzzling session. He hasn't switched to one of the many other hair styling products we have floating around our tiny studio, so I'm putting this as a win for Lush.

The Spring Wash Shower Gel isn't pictured because we used to all up! Spearminty, lemon thymey and a teeny bit salty, it's a swell morning shower gel that really peps you up.
Dirty Body Wash (from $8.95), Dirty Hair Styling Cream ($11.50), Dirty Toothy Tabs ($3.95), Dirty Body Spray ($19.95) and Dirty Shaving Cream ($9.95) are all available at Lush stores now.
Also because I know Boyfriend will being reading this, here's a little Gorilla inspired extra for him.
