      Not for me

      My favourite store, Lush, makes beautiful and unusual fragrances under the name Gorilla Perfume. Many of these are available in-store, with some exclusively online. Several are available in sample sizes, and you can also buy two miniature sets each containing eight of the sample size fragrances.

      I bought the second set, including many of the perfumes originally called ‘B sides and rarities’. These are scents from Lush past and also from B Never, Lush’s sister company which closed a few years ago. I have sampled all the perfumes in turn and I am going to review them all. The fragrance I am going to review today is Ladyboy.

      *Packaging*
      Each fragrance comes in a tiny 2ml glass vial and the bottles are laid out together in a recycled cardboard case. It is also possible to buy the fragrances in the following forms:
      - Solid GBP7.50
      - Spritzer GBP15
      - Atomiser GBP31

      The concentrations are different depending on the form purchased, with the atomiser having the highest concentration. The perfumes come in the standard black packaging which is slightly dull, but fits in with the Gorilla Perfume ethos of concentrating on the perfume rather than the packaging. Some people on the Lush forum have found that perfume can leak from these black bottles, but I haven’t had any problems.

      *The Fragrance*
      Ladyboy fragrance is very unusual, with notes of violet, banana, seaweed and amber. Lush describe it as a ‘carnival’, a complex and sophisticated scent that is unconventional.

      *My Experience*
      When I first tried this perfume I thought it smelled like a bit of a mess to be honest. There was a musty scent but I could detect a couple of the notes, such as violet and amber.

      The longevity of the scent was impressive. It lasted nearly all day although it had fainted slightly by the end. I couldn’t work out whether I liked it or not. Sometimes I thought it was a bit boring and musty, but at others I caught a whiff of sweetness which I quite liked.

      *Conclusion*
      I’m not sure what I really think about this one. I probably wouldn’t buy it for myself as I just wasn’t keen. Sometimes I thought I quite liked it, but overall this is not one for me!
