Spraying The Joy Of Life All Over Me | Lush Body Sprays 2020 First Impressions

Hey everyone! 

Welcome to a brand new post! Lush released some new Body Sprays recently. As I am a big Lushie, I thought that it would be good to talk to you all, about my, first impressions of these new Body Sprays.

Notice: These are my first impressions, and, not a proper review. If you've tried any of these sprays for longer than a day, then, please let me know your opinions of them down below.

Avocado Co-Wash 

DRF Alcohol Water (Aqua) Perfume Glycerine Litsea Cubeba Oil Bergamot Oil Olibanum Oil Amyl Cinnamal *Benzyl Cinnamate *Cinnamal *Cinnamyl Alcohol *Citral *Citronellol *Geraniol *Limonene *Linalool

I smelt this one in Liverpool in June, and it smelt like the Shower Cream/Hair product. Very creamy, with a hint of Lime, like Key Lime Pie. When I sprayed this, it smelt completely different to what I had smelt before. Whereas, the old version had hints of Avocado Co-Wash, from the beginning, this reminds me slightly more of Avobath at the beginning. When it settles down, that sprightly hint of citrus still shines through quite a lot, but with it settling, has brought a touch of cream to it.

Big 

DRF Alcohol Water (Aqua) Perfume Glycerine Alpha-Isomethyl Ionone Neroli Oil Sicilian Red Mandarin Oil Vanilla Absolute Orange Flower Absolute *Anise Alcohol *Citral *Coumarin *Farnesol Geraniol *Hydroxycitronellal *Limonene *Linalool

This is a weird one. Just because, it says that it contains Red Mandarin, and, Orange Flower, doesn't mean that it is going to be Citrus based in any way shape or form. If you've smelt the Big Shampoo, then imagine that but in a sprayable from. To me, this smells pretty much, of a, sprightly fresh Violet scent. If you like Lush scents, such as, Kerbside Violet or V, then, you will probably enjoy this Body Spray quite a bit.

Calacas 

DRF Alcohol Perfume Lime Oil Olibanum Oil Neroli Oil Alpha-Isomethyl Ionone Benzyl Salicylate *Citral *Farnesol *Geraniol Hydroxycitronellal *Isoeugenol *Limonene *Linalool

Calacas is a very strange one. I kinda like it, but I also don't like it for some reason. I love that when you spray it, the first note that you get is the Lime Oil, which makes it sprightly and zesty. A scent that Lush doesn't do a lot of within Body Sprays/Perfumes, but after about ten mins of wearing it, the Lime faded quite a lot, to the point that all I was smelling was a whiff of a creamy note. This is a bit of a shame, as I would love to smell of Lime with a touch of Sherbet to it all day long.

Coco Loco 

DRF Alcohol Water (Aqua) Perfume Glycerine Benzyl Alcohol Brazilian Orange Oil Coriander Seed Oil Lemongrass Oil *Citral *Limonene *Linalool Coumarin

I'm still fully unsure what this scent is meant to be. I've smelt and used the Coco Loco Shower Oil, which smells of Coconut, but this smelt a bit like a mix of Watermelon, Lemon and a whisper of Coconut. I love Coconut scents and Coconut itself, as, I drink Coconut Milk often, but honestly, I was sold on this one instantly like I was with other new Body Sprays.

Flying Fox

DRF Alcohol Water (Aqua) Perfume Glycerine *Linalool Jasmine Absolute Ylang Ylang Oil Cypress Oil Palmarosa Oil Benzyl Alcohol *Benzyl Benzoate *Benzyl Salicylate Butylphenyl Methylpropional *Eugenol *Farnesol *Geraniol *Limonene

I quite liked this one, but I can also see this Spray, being a bit like Marmite in the sense of loving or loathing it. The main scent that I got was a mix of floral. If you like scents like Death and Decay, you know, floral with a kick of deep smoke then you will love this one.

Guardian Of The Forest 

DRF Alcohol Water (Aqua) Perfume Glycerine Cypress Oil Lime Oil Rosewood Oil Oakmoss Absolute Oakmoss Extract Amyl Cinnamal Benzyl Alcohol Benzyl Benzoate Benzyl Salicylate Cinnamyl Alcohol *Citral Citronellol *Coumarin *Geraniol Hydroxycitronellal *Limonene *Linalool

If you love the Bath Bomb, that has sadly been discontinued, then you will love it. The grassy sort of notes come out in the Body Spray, compared to the Bath Bomb that had more of a grassy and woody note to it. If you like scents such as Grass then you might love this one.

Groovy Kind Of Love 

DRF Alcohol Water (Aqua) Perfume Glycerine *Limonene Rosewood Oil Bergamot Oil Ylang Ylang Oil Benzyl Alcohol *Benzyl Benzoate *Benzyl Cinnamate *Benzyl Salicylate *Cinnamal *Citral *Farnesol *Geraniol *Isoeugenol *Linalool

The best way to describe this one is Bubblegum with a touch of Lemon. If you rush to buy bottles of Snow Fairy Body Spray at Christmas, but are sick of having to stock up on several bottles at once due to the limited edition of the spray, then this might be a Spray that you'll like. I'd say where Snow Fairy screams in sweetness, so does Groovy, just in a more 'mature' way. I loved this but also think that I'd gravitate to this for when I'm in the sweet scent sort of mood which is not all the time.

Honey I Washed The Kids 

DRF Alcohol Water (Aqua) Perfume Glycerine Bergamot Oil Brazilian Orange Oil Amyl Cinnamal Butylphenyl Methylpropional Citronellol *Limonene *Linalool

When spraying this, it doesn't really smell of much to start off with. Once giving it a few moments to settle, it became gorgeous. If you love the sort of Toffee scent that comes with HIWTK, imagine that and then amped up a bit. It lasted on my skin until the next day, and I still loved it then.

Jungle 

DRF Alcohol Water (Aqua) Perfume Glycerine *Linalool Ylang Ylang Oil Vetivert Oil Cypress Oil Cedarwood Oil *Hydroxycitronellal *Limonene

Sadly, this was another one of the scents that I dint really enjoy that much. It had a sort of fresh Carpet scent to it which isn't something I really want in a Body Spray sadly. I also didn't get any correspondence, via scent, to the Jungle Hair product, unlike the other sprays. I really wanted to love it too but I just couldn't.

Let The Good Times Roll 

DRF Alcohol Water (Aqua) Perfume Glycerine *Limonene *Linalool

I enjoyed this one. If you love Gourmand/Food based scents then you will love this one. I'm still a bit confused as LTGTR is so close to HIWTK, I didn't personally see the point of releasing both. I'd definitely tell you to smell it and decide for yourself.

Plum Rain 

DRF Alcohol Water (Aqua) Perfume *Limonene Glycerine Osmanthus Absolute Petitgrain Oil Sicilian Red Mandarin Oil *Citral *Geraniol *Linalool

Fruity and fresh. This is an amazing scent to have in a Body Spray, and, I love it. I think that this one would be amazing in the Autumn. It's just amazing to me. If you like the Plum Rain Shower Gel then trust me you will love this.

Roller 

DRF Alcohol Water (Aqua) Perfume Glycerine Benzyl Alcohol Geranium Oil Brazilian Orange Oil Tonka Absolute *Citronellol *Geraniol *Limonene *Linalool Amyl Cinnamal Citral

Fruity, floral and creamy. Sadly, this is a bit too creamy for me. As I said with the GKOL scent, I don't mind sweet scents every now and again, but I think that this might be a tad too much for me personally. If you love the scent of Yummy Mummy or sort of florally sweet scents then you will probably love this.

Sakura 

DRF Alcohol Water (Aqua) Perfume Sicilian Lemon Oil Butylphenyl Methylpropional Glycerine *Limonene Mimosa Absolute Orange Flower Absolute Jasmine Absolute *Benzyl Benzoate *Benzyl Salicylate *Citral *Eugenol *Farnesol Geraniol *Linalool

The Lime gets lost in this one I think. When I sprayed it, the first thing that I got was the Jasmine and the Mimosa. I didn't think I was going to like it, but I think that its one of those that I would use everyday. You know the sort of scents that are light and breezy but make people ask you what you're wearing as they're getting a little whisper of it when they are near you.

So White 

DRF Alcohol Water (Aqua) Perfume Glycerine Bergamot Oil Brazilian Orange Oil Rose Absolute Neroli Oil Orange Flower Absolute Butylphenyl Methylpropional Geraniol *Limonene *Linalool

Fresh and vibrant. When I sprayed this one, I got a big whiff of fresh crisp Apple. I think that this one is amazing but weirdly I don't think I would go towards it unless someone suggested it to me. Does that make sense? I'm not one to instantly gravitate towards Apple scented things but this is on a level of its own.

The Comforter 

DRF Alcohol Water (Aqua) Perfume Glycerine Bergamot Oil Cassis Absolute Cypress Oil *Limonene *Linalool

When I sprayed this, I got a sour Blackcurrant note, kind of like the scent of Scrub Scrub Scrub. When I gave it a few moments, I realised that it was slowly becoming more of the sweet Comforter that we all know via the Bubble Bar. I absolutely love this, but I also love anything that is The Comforter scented.

Think Pink 

RF Alcohol Water (Aqua) Perfume Glycerine Lavender Oil Tonka Absolute Vanilla Absolute Neroli Oil *Benzyl Benzoate *Cinnamal *Citral *Coumarin *Geraniol *Limonene *Linalool

Uhm... How do I say this... Uhm... I hated this one! I'm sorry, there's no better way to say it. It smelt horrible. It smelt like burnt rubber. Yeah, sorry. Nah thanks. Nope. Thank you, next. I wanted to like this one, but, I really couldn't.

Tramp

DRF Alcohol Water (Aqua) Patchouli Oil Perfume Glycerine Alpha-Isomethyl Ionone Oakmoss Absolute Oakmoss Extract *Eugenol *Limonene *Linalool

Smoky and is the main scent that I got from this. Pure Smoke. I kind of liked it but I need to try it longer for a five minute sniff to truly understand what it is like under all of the smoke and murrors.

Turmeric Latte 

RF Alcohol Water (Aqua) Perfume Glycerine Tonka Absolute Benzoin Resinoid Vanilla Absolute *Anise Alcohol *Benzyl Benzoate *Cinnamal *Limonene *Linalool Coumarin Eugenol

I need this scent for the rest of my life. I absolutely love it. So, at the beginning the sort of creamy vanilla comes through and then the Turmeric/Spicy notes sort of kick in and oh my god it is amazing. I would wear this all of the time alternating with HIWTK and The Comforter if I could. it just makes my soul warm, which sounds really weird to say. It's not too spicy, and its not too sweet or creamy, which I think is why I love it so much. Give me everything Turmeric Latte scented, please, Lush!

Yoga Bomb 

DRF Alcohol Water (Aqua) Perfume Glycerine Cassie Absolute Olibanum Oil Ho Wood Oil Sandalwood Oil  *Benzyl Salicylate *Farnesol *Limonene *Linalool Eugenol Benzyl Benzoate

This one gave me Woody but Citrus vibes. If you imagine being in the middle of the woods, during Summer and then bottling it up, you would get this exact scent.

Yuzu And Cocoa

DRF Alcohol Water (Aqua) Perfume Glycerine *Limonene Cocoa Absolute Bergamot Oil Grapefruit Oil Tonka Absolute *Citral *Coumarin *Linalool

I know that some think that YAC smells like Chocolate Orange, but this smells more like Coconut to me. YAC is honestly what I thought Coco Loco was going to smell of.

Have you smelt any of the Sprays mentioned today? Let me know down below!
