Lush Day of the Dead Perfume Review, Photos

I hope everyone got the chance to indulge in the Lush Forum Fragrances earlier this month. Mine arrived yesterday much to my delight and I could have literally sat for ages simply sniffing the box it came in rather than the actual fragrances.

My fav so far? Obviously Day of the Dead. Day of the Dead has to be one of Lush’s best fragrances to date and I can’t believe it was only around for Halloween.

Gasp! Horror!

But now I can re-live that beautiful scent again and again and again with the perfume!

If you loved the scent of the Day of the Dead goodies, the perfume perfectly captures that fragrance. It smells exactly like Lady Catrina Soap with a super heavy dominate note of fruity, sweet crushed purple grapes. These grapes are chased with a healthy dose of tart lime making the fragrance sweet, tart, and just gorgeous.

Lush dubs it a Mexican Fesita! I couldn’t agree more, truly it reminds me of Mexico. The grape note is very candy-ish but adding the tart lime into the mix crystals the fragrance and amps the grape up turning it into a grape lollipop-like scent.

Truly it’s one of Lush’s best scents to date.

I can barely wait for Halloween to come around again in the hopes that we haven’t seen the last of Day of the Dead.

Well done Lush.

The fragrance has amazing throw and lingers like crazy! Two spritzes can get you through an entire day with no touch up.

The forum fragrances were available for a limited time however after the Thanksgiving Holiday you can try contacting Lush UK to see if they have any back ups as they do occasionally have spares that they set aside in case items do not arrive, arrive broke, etc…..

Did you haul Day of the Dead Perfume?

Loving it?

Do share!

About the Muse

Isabella MuseIsabella is just an average everyday geeky girl who doesn’t blend her eyeshadow correctly, wears too much blush, and hopes she never finds her holy grail products because she likes the thrill of the chase so much. Her mission is to bring you super honest reviews on makeup, skincare, fragrance and all things beauty. She’s in no way an expert on the topic and she sure as hell isn’t a super model. But she’s passionate about makeup and is seeking like-minded individuals that like pina coladas, getting caught in the rain, and ones that enjoy spending hundreds of dollars at Sephora without feeling buyer’s remorse.

    • the Muse

      Yes Courtney. It’s not on the Lush site. It was a forum exclusive offer. That’s why I mentioned try calling after Thanksgiving. It’s lush uk only. Hope this helps!

  • Stephanie

    But wait . . . what did you think about the other perfumes?!?! I ordered my perfumes with a group so I have no idea if they’re in yet but I need to smell them so badly. Especially Big!

    • the Muse

      Hi Stephanie. Gonna review them separately hun. I’ll tell you shortly about Big and Twilight 🙂

      They prob came this week as most everyone I spoke to in the US is getting them. ;-D

  • Christal

    Just a heads up that these be also be for sale tomorrow only on the North American Lush website.

    Ok, so muse…i desperately need your help!!! So, since I do not have access to a store, I am not able to smell scents of the perfumes and did you see the one day only sale today? ugh…what to do? i am going to go through these reviews on some of the scents, but i figured i would throw my desperation out there to you doe some help in the meantime. You are a huge fan of snowcake, right? I actually haven’t smelled the soap or perfume, but u feel like it is a scent i would love…it’s caky, right? i do really love scents that are like snow fairy, vanilla, cakey, icing, chocolate, patchouli, and some sweet fruityness (ok, so apparently i like lots of scents, but I am not a floral girl) so, with that said, i am thinking i can prob only order 2 fragrances right now…i’m just not sure what to order bc it is so limited…so my thoughts are: snowcake, american cream or day of the dead )and then there is candy fluff which is LE on th site right now) what do you think?

    • the Muse

      hi alli I think I answered all this in a few other comments so I won’t go into it again. Hope it helps!

  • alli

    ok, so I meant to say that I feel snowcake is a scent I would love…sorry about that.

  • Chrissy

    Did you get the Lush USA email last night!?!?! All of these available with special link today only. starting 10am pacific! I still have the email if you want me to forward.

  • Kellie

    I perhaps got one on the UK round.
    And then 3 on the USA round.
    Plus a Big.
    I hope they smell like the UK DOTD, because honestly, I could drink it, it smells so yummy!!

  • Marianne
