From 8th April 2011, London’s Regent Street will be the only Lush shop in the world
to house the whole Gorilla Perfumer’s fine fragrance collection, currently only available for purchase online.
The range consists of ten different fragrances, including classics such as Cocktail, 1000 Kisses Deep, Love and Dear John.
1000 Kisses Deep (£11.00 for 10ml spritzer / £23.00 for 30ml bottle / £5.50 for solid) … is a deeply woody resinous perfume, with touches of exotic flowers and citrus. It contains an exquisite and delicate apricot-note from osmanthus blossoms, combined with a touch of mandarin-sharp citrus and deep resins, expresses the complexities of true love. It encompasses the whole spectrum of feelings and the powerful rush of emotion.
Superworld Unknown (£15.00 for 10ml spritzer / £32.00 for 30ml bottle / £7.50 for solid) … candyfloss and sparkling bubbles. If you feel down and need clarity, follow singer Karin Park’s advice and enter the Superworldunknown. It’s a panoramic world of possibility. Its impish combination of citrus notes and chocolate is like a surrealist dream of running away to the circus and escaping ties.
Cocktail (£15.00 for 10ml spritzer / £32.00 for 30ml bottle / £7.50 for solid)
… floral and green, a dress-up perfume. A homage to classic French perfumery, achieved using large quantities of natural materials. The leading lady in this scent is ylang-ylang. Cocktail is preparing to go out for the evening with a chic drink in hand. It’s the perfect companion after dark.
Inhale (£15.00 for 15g) and Exhale (£15.00 for 15g)
… available for the first time to purchase as two separate parts, together they form Breath of God (£32.00 for 30ml bottle), Gorilla Perfumer Simon Constantine’s first fine fragrance, created after his journey to Tibet and awarded 5 stars by Luca Turin & Tania Sanchez. It’s a unique
and beautiful perfume for both men and women and is also available as a fragrance on its own.
Inhale … with main notes of neroli, lemon oil and bergamot blended with fruity melon and floral notes of jasmine and rose, this is the mysterious, transparent, fruity-half of Breath of God.
Its lemon opening and a distinctive melon note create a modern and sophisticated feel.
Exhale … with main notes of Vetivert, sandalwood, cedarwood, amber, patchouli and musk, is the intense wood-smoky base of Breath of God. Simon was studying the properties of incense and worked on an intoxicating blend that would induce reverence in all who smelled it.
Other fine fragrances in the range include: B Scent, a stylish
combination of rose tempered with crisp citrus; Dear John, a mix of
citrus, coffee, woods and spices and Ladyboy, a unisex fragrance
with a quirky and sexy amber scent.
All fine fragrances are available
in 30ml bottle, 10ml spritzer and 10g solid sizes.
The Gorilla Perfumers fine fragrance collection is launching
