Lush All Good Things Gorilla Perfume


Personally Lush All Good Things Gorilla Perfume is not a scent that I would wear but the sentiment and inspiration behind the scent resonated deep within and is far more profound than I had ever imagined...

"All Good Things pays tribute to a relationship that was much valued, now ended and celebrated as an irresistible fragrance. The cyclical nature of life is reflected in our connections with other humans. People slip in and out if our orbits, bringing ideas and inspirations into our hemispheres and the joy of collaboration and shared passions. When they must move on and leave us the sadness of the parting of ways is tempered as doors open to new possibilities, opportunities and fresh ideas in their absence."

Poignant and beautiful wouldn't you agree?

Lush All Good Things Gorilla Perfume is a blend of candyfloss, black pepper, cedarwood and tonka bean. Sweet yet bitter, dark yet light and masculine yet feminine at the same time. If ever there was a fragrance to tell a tale of two cities this is it. Oddly I have found when I am a little tired or down on the dumps this rings darker and more rich - like a cognac on my skin and unsurprisingly it is lighter and brighter, almost sugary sweet when I am more upbeat. The senses are a wonderful thing. I can hand on heart say that Lush All Good Things Gorilla Perfume does not remind me of any main stream fragrance (I am not all that familiar with the rest of Lush's fragrance line) and is utterly unisex. Ignore the yellow label, this is not an zing citrus scent, it is a medley of complex notes and emotions that you have to personally smell to understand. If you enjoy fragrances that can not be defined as one sex or the other this is for you.

Lush All Good Things Gorilla Perfume £10-£40 via Lush - link.
You can also purchase this in-store which I do recommend doing as scent is so subjective.

  1. Hmmm, the packaging on this product really turns me off. Haven't smelt any of the Lush fragrances but this makes me intrigued to check them out.

  2. I absolutely adored this (and Death and Decay) when I smelt them at the shop. It'll be hard to decide which one I'll actually buy though... I might just have to convince myself that I need them both!

  5. I'm loving the way you write! These Lush reviews have been addictive. I agree that the choice of colour makes it look like it'd be a citrus-ey scent! I can't wait to have a go at the perfumes!

  8. It's not something I would normally go for, probably because of the yellow packaging, but from the way you've described it it sounds like it smells great!

  9. Sounds like it might be like Eau Duelle by Diptyque.

    My husband wears Dirty, and I looooove it. Such a unique fragrance.
