"It definitely smells more on the floral side and the scent, when sprayed on clothes, lingers for days (and weeks in case of my coat). This is my absolute favourite lush product ever and I’m so happy they brought it back." - sugorine+lush

"It's heady and heavy when you get close but very discreet at the same time. Perfect for winter!" - stobraxo

"The most accurate reproduction of a lily that I've found in perfume." - alice.e.hargrave

How to use:

Heady jasmine and ylang ylang combine with sweet rose to form a bouquet that is overpowering at first and then comforting as it settles on the skin. Spritz yourself and let this floral perfume transport you to a serene space where the fullness of beauty and its inevitable decay can be contemplated without fear. The message is one of meditation, acceptance and optimism delivered in a glorious, floral flourish.
