Gorilla Perfume by Lush Breath of God - fragrance review

Another day, another Gorilla Perfume by Lush that I fancy the pants right off of. Breath of God is inspired by traditional Nepalese temples and this comes through in the use of smoky incense and damp earth notes that the scent is based around.


 It opens with a warm rockmelon and almost medicinal note - think a slice of melon rubbed down with Vick's Vapour Rub. Not the best image, but somehow it works. It then smokes that melon in a bonfire along with some freshly cut green sticks and lets it burn down to glowing embers, dropping in a bundle of incense and dried vetiver to smoke away and warm the damp surrounding soil. Winter comfort bliss in a tube. If you read my man fragrance post and are still undecided if guy's scents are for you (which they are, because I said so), try dipping your tentative nostril into this one as it's got the whole smoky green thing going on but is still softened by a background hint of rose, jasmine and neroli, plus that melon for all you fruity fans to cling to.




It's housed in the regular Gorilla black tube that is perfecto for travel as it stands up to the wear-n-tear hell my handbag's residents go through. The solid is a pretty blue colour and doesn't leave a coloured stain like that tarty Imogen Rose did. Like all GP solids, it's a push up tube. I think I would prefer a twist mechanism as my current method of lowering the raised solid (smushing it with the lid) isn't really the nicest way to treat a product.



Def a scent suitable for the boys, and luckily the Boyfriend hasn't worked out that fragrances come in solid form, nor does he read my blog, so I'm keeping this one all to myself. Mwahahahahahaaaa!




I tried this in the solid perfume form, but it is also available as a spray scent. From what I've tried of Gorilla perfumes, the solids don't fall far from the spray tree and I confirmed this is very much the truth after ducking into the heady scent-bomb that is a Lush store for a quick spritz.


Breath of God perfume solid is A$11.95 for a 12g solid. I can't remember if I paid for this myself, or if it was gifted at a product launch. Sorry, I'm having a mega ditzy doozy of a day. Review is honest as always anyhow. You know I got your back, girl.

    1. Hopefully in a "love to try this product" way, not a "love to try what Michaela's smoking" way ;)

    1. Hmm does this mean I now need to add a new disclaimer? "Do NOT break into Lush at 7pm to acquire nom-worthy perfume. If you still do, get me a solid of Tuca Tuca".

  6. Place your offensive towers and cannons within your walls
    so that they can cover everything you own. Facebook's acquisition of Oculus is a sign that the
    tech giant is banking on virtual reality changing the
    world of gaming and entertainment. Merida is shocked to learn that her
    parents Queen Elinor (Emma Thompson) and King Fergus (Billy Connolly) intend to find her a suitor for
    her hand in marriage.
