One variation is never enough for beauty junkies that’s why Lush North Pole Soap comes in two fragrances! Lush created their new Lush North Pole Soap for Holiday 2012 in two different colors with two different fragrances so you get a little variety with your Christmas Shower Cheer.
I picked up the white variation for myself recently from Lush UK and I’m ever so happy I did because it quite reminds me of Lush’s long gone Candy Cane Soap I loved so much.
The pink is all about chocolate and mint. Sounded like a mint Tootsie Roll to me! Since I don’t like the smell of chocolate I decided I’d try out the white version.
Although wholly white it does feature small bits of pink in the center for a festive candy-cane like appearance. Every see those non traditional pink and white candy canes? This is what this reminds me of.
It quite smells a lot like Candy Cane Soap to me. Not super minty in the least, not candy cane-ish or peppermint either…it’s sort of a subtle mint with a bit of a twang to it. Lush says it’s woodsy and minty but I seriously don’t get the wood note at all and I can’t really describe with the back note is that’s paired up with the mint. It’s kinda sorta minty candy but the “twang” I’m talking about kinda morphs the scent.
It’s unique…that’s for sure!
If you loved Candy Cane Soap and are terribly sad it hasn’t rejoined the Lush Christmas world this year I’d happy recommend selecting a slice of North Pole White instead as you’ll be quite happy how similiar it smells.
I won’t Muse Approve it because this one might not be everyone’s cuppa. I will however, recommend sniffing it. You might be get as addicted as I did when I sniffed it the first time.
