The Muse has been a Lush fan for many a fine year now. In all my year’s of lushin’ it up I don’t think I’ve ever come across a soap like the brand new, limited edition Father Frost Soap. Who are you and what have you done with my Lush?
Jump ahead for it!
If you happen to know Lush the Muse highly suggests opening your mind because Father Frost is bound to kick you back and make you wonder, “wait this is Lush?”
This beautiful, indigo blue soap reminds the Muse of old Victorian French milled soap. I remember when I was younger my mum used to keep soaps in our washroom which we never used they were purely for decorative purposes, Father Frost happens to smell just like those soaps. Lord knows if we dared wash our hands with those soaps or even dared touch them my mother would have a coronary….NOT the decorative SOAPS! OMGZ! That’s another story for another time though. Today it’s about dear old Father Frost….
If you don’t know what french milled soap smells like think of a very heavy floral bouquet of various flowers and you pretty much have this soap down in scent. Lush calls it the smell of a garden….me I call it elegant, old world-like, and very, very, very different from what Lush is normally known for. It’s made with apple juice and cranberries but truly that doesn’t come out in the scent at all. You’ll get a floral blend of Ylang, Ylang, Jasmine, and even a tiny bit of rose…all and all a very fresh flowery blend.
For me it’s an utter winner, for some it may be a lose if you aren’t much of a floral scented kinda girl. I personally fall into the do not want when it comes to something too flowery but this manages to win my heart. I’m not sure if I’d use it on my body but it currently has a place of honor in my hand soap dish and makes my hands both soft, smooth, and beautifully scented.
Yes, indeed I do think this Muse needs to haul more of dear old Father Frost before he leaves after the Holidays.
Muse Approval for purchase.
Lovely, ’nuff said.
