When I was a kid I was obsessed with Hello Kitty and Sanrio. Ok, let me correct that a little bit. As a child and as an adult I’m a tiny bit obsessed with Sanrio. Aren’t we all? But when I think back on my childhood I have a lot of good memories I associate with Sanrio. I remember the mall had a stationary store and they had everything and anything Sanrio related. Stickers, gum, pens, pencils, pencil boxes, and most importantly erasers. I remember I had a pink Hello Kitty eraser that had a triangle pointed top and a square body which fit into a pink case which slid the eraser up and down. It’s odd how the mind works sometimes and how I can vividly remember a silly little eraser like that. Most importantly I remember how amazing it smelled. It smelled just like Lush the Comforter! It was this slightly sweet scent…! I can’t even begin to describe it to be honest but I just remember it smelled amazing and when I smelled Lush the Comforter for the first time all the memories of that tiny eraser came flooding back!
The Comforter is now available in a Body Spray from Lush and is part of their permanent collection however, if you’d like something strong there’s a The Comforter Perfume available from Lush UK as well which is exclusive to their website. The Comforter Perfume isn’t actually new it’s something that’s come and gone a few times from Lush during forum fragrance rounds. I’m glad to see it seems to be a permanent fixture lately on Lush UK. If you’d like it they do ship to the USA.
As for the scent…!
It’s been said initially this smells like cat pee but I don’t get that at all and the idea revolts me haha! I just get a tart blackcurrant scent that goes sweeter as it dries down and settles into skin. It has a certain little twang that prevents it being overly sweet! If you had a Sanrio eraser this is basically spot on what it smells like. Childhood, good memories, Hello Kitty…!
Are you a fan of the Comforter?
