Lush Blackberry Bath Bomb



This is probably the most confusing bath bomb Lush makes. Mostly because of its name. Most people expect it to smell like fresh blackberries. So what does it smell like?

Lush claims:
Blast away your worries! With the power of bergamot and frankincense, this bomb lifts you up whist keeping your feet on the ground
This is a good one to use on days when you are feeling out of sorts, rushed or just can’t think straight. It brings calm and clarity to a busy hectic life. Step out of the bath and leave your cares behind.
Makes the perfect bath partner with Sultana of Soap as they share the same fragrance.

Blackberry Bath Bomb is one of the first bath bombs Mo invented back in them there olden days – but its pure simplicity has made it a long term favourite.
The fragrance was invented originally when Mark and Ro went to Paris and wanted a fragrance that was evocative of the blackberry and musqué they smelt everywhere.

Supposedly it smells like Paris. I've been to Paris twice and don't recall smelling this scent anywhere. It does smell like Lush Sultana soap...and if your aren't familiar with that its a very creamy dreamy floral that smell so good. I really like the way this bomb smelled. It did smell a little weird when it hit the water though but like it. Unfortunately it didn't linger on me.

This one didn't dry my skin at all. 

And it turned the water the prettiest dark gray purple ever. 

If fizzed super fast and after it was done it left a little note saying BOOM BOOM. Kinda lame if you ask me. But cute at the same time. 

Ingredients:
Sodium Bicarbonate, Citric Acid, Perfume,Bergamot Oil, Frankincense Oil, Hexyl Cinnamal,Lilial, Colour 42053, Colour 17200



Overall, I really like it. More than most of the other I have tried. But I wouldn't repurchase. I would however buy this in a lotion. Does anyone know if they make a lotion with this scent.
