For about two or three years now the UK “surprises” (I use surprise loosely because we know it’s coming before it’s even announced!) Lush lovers far and wide with perfumes.
Each year the lovely Hilary from Lush UK Mail Order ventures onto her soapbox on the UK Forum and asks everyone to vote on a few scents they’d like made into perfumes.
This year like any other year Hilary has again promised the delights of Lush perfume!
This is normally a UK event only and if you want to partake of the bounty of Lush perfume you have to pay a rather obscene amount of money for shipping!
But I’m happy to report that this year Hilary has worked with Lush NA and both UK and NA are having a perfume party!
Here’s what Hilary posted on the UK Forum
Woo Hooooo !! Finally, I can give you news about our little ol’ fragrance round ! After begging our overstretched Fragrance Room, they have agreed to do 6 fragrances for us again this year. Everything has been checked out ,scrutinized and costed – and we are able to offer the following:
Candy Fluff 30ml £17.50
Olive Branch 30ml £24.50
Snowcake 30ml £17.25
Black Pearl 30ml £ 19.50
Bathos 30ml £21.25
Lily 30ml £22.50
They will be on sale by telephone only by phoning our Mail Order room. The sale will be: Friday 29th Nov 9am – 9 pm Saturday 30th Nov 9am – 5 pm Once the phone lines are closed, we will add up the orders and will make the stock. We hope to begin despatching it by 12th Dec. No orders will be taken by UK Mail Order for fragrances for delivery to USA or Canada. Instead – US and Canadian residents can order the fragrances directly from NA Mail Order – who will mail your fragrance out to you from them. ( Please refer to the NA Forum for details of the sale, prices and shipping – as this is being organised from there and not the UK, so we will not know the precise details ) There will be an online Party On Friday, whilst the phones are open. Staff from the NA business will be joining us online to take part in the fun and chat. This is a party that is going to span the pond !!! So set aside time in your diary to join us in The Salon section of the International Forum – where there will be chat, competitions, prizes and chaos. Post and Packaging for the UK is FREE. Rest of World – Spend over £150 and post and packaging is half price
P.S If there are any NA forum folk reading this at the moment – there are no ordering details or prices confirmed for you yet. Poor old Stibbsy has been chasing us every day to get the info he needs in order to organise things his end – but we were still trying to confirm our side of things so couldn’t give the info needed. Everything is now ready – but with Vancouver 8 hours behind us – he is probably still in bed ( and having nightmares about having to organise all of his stuff with only about 24 hours to go !! ) So please bear with us – the Stibbsy will be up and at it soon, and all the details you need will be online as soon as he can humanly manage it. He is very keen – so I know he will not be hanging around !!
(Hilary your spelling is bloody awful but I still love you!)
Over the course of the years I’ve been collecting Lush I’ve scored all their perfumes and I will tell you that this is a very, very, very, extremely, very special event that is well worth your cash!
Lush perfumes are potent, strong, lingering and gorgeous!
Snowcake hasn’t been made in a perfume in about 2 years now and many people are falling over themselves to score a bottle!
The list is compiled of three scents that have already been made and three scents that are brand new!
Candy Fluff and Olive Branch were made for last year’s perfume round while Snowcake was made for the perfume round prior. Black Pearl, Bathos, and Lily (aka Ghost) are brand new and have never been made before! Black Pearl is sure to be a major hit as the much beloved bath bomb is no longer made as of this past year!
This event is happening this Friday from what I understand so as soon as I know further information I’ll post it here!
These will make wonderful gifts for any Lush lover in your life or yourself! I can’t begin to describe how truly wonderful they are!
I’m not partaking of the NA round as I prefer my Lush from the UK so I’m having a friend do my purchasing for me as UK is NOT shipping to the US this year because it’s caused too many problems in the past with bottles breaking, spilling, etc….
If you’re strongly keen on getting these from the UK, like me, I’d suggest stepping onto MUA and asking a fellow Brit if they might purchase them for you and ship them over!
If you live in Europe they may have a chance of ordering from UK just e-mail them prior to Friday asking about whether they’ll ship to your location!
My friends in Asia you may have to see if someone can CP you some so start checking with friends or fellow MUAer’s if you’re interested in scoring these!
Or you can get them from Lush NA by calling mail order on Friday if you’re within the US!
As soon as I know the prices and the details for Lush NA I’ll most definately share!
A big thanks to Hilary for always making the holidays extra special by doing these great things!
