I don’t drink but I really like boozy smells. Is that weird? Hmmm. Like mulled wine or tropical drinks and such, they smells so wicked good don’t they?
That’s why I indulged in Lush Glogg Shower Gel since it’s described as a mulled wine and I was all about having that in my shower gel.
Prior to heading into my Lush Glogg Shower Gel purchase I was prepared to be disappointed. This is a good thing as I wasn’t hopeful about loving it and being crushed that I didn’t.
I don’t like Glogg at all however I will say that it’ll probably become a very popular Lush item and will be very popular with many Lushies. To me Glogg has a bit of Lush Chai Shower Gel to it. It’s spicy, it’s warm, it’s rich, and it’s not all bad but it’s just not for someone like me who favors fruity, sweet, unicorns, and rainbows type of fragrances.
Sadly I don’t get wine from the mix even though it contains a healthy shot of red wine and brandy. I do however get straight up cinnamon undiluted and hardcore. It’s abrasive to my nose as it doesn’t contain any sweetness that makes cinnamon a nice scent. For example sugar and cinnamon together is gorgeous however cinnamon alone is a tad harder, bolder, and richer and not entirely pleasant to my nose. Cloves are are also in the mix but it doesn’t give the cinnamon a softer edge but more of a harsher one that comes across darker.
If you like warm, spicy scents this will probably appeal however if you’re looking for something that’s spicy as well as a little sweet, this won’t be for you. It leans towards being one of Lush’s darker offering in the realms of Karma, etc….and far from items like Snow Fairy, Sex Bomb, etc…
If you’re seeking a boozy, warm mulled wine, this won’t be it either. Personally I get alot of cinnamon to it.
Will you like it?
I’m not sure, it really depends on your nose for scents and what you normally favor in the realms of fragrance. Those who are foody, fruity, or sweet types might not love this. Those who enjoy sweeter florals or florals will also not like it. However, those who like herbal, earthy, or patchouli type scents will find the joy in this.
It’s definitely something that needs to be sniffed prior to purchasing to see if it’s for you.
I can see myself using up the bottle I got as it’s not so bad I can’t stand the smell however it’s not something I’d probably willingly reach for daily or repurchase.
Sorry Lush, I’ll stick with my beloved Snow Fairy.
Anyone try Lush Glogg?
