Brightside Solid Perfume from Lush

Brightside Solid PerfumeBack in May the Lush Kitchen team put a list together of Lush’s most popular scents. We (the Lush community) then had to pick our ultimate top 5 scents from that scent list. With this list the Lush Kitchen had promised to make several never-before-been-released products with those chosen top 5 scents.

I was really happy but not surprised to see that the Brightside scent had been chosen as one of the 5. Brightside is a beautiful scent family and one that I wish Lush had expanded on, with other products long before now. Alongside a Brightside body lotion the Lush Kitchen also decided to release a Brightside Solid Perfume.

As soon as my Brightside body lotion and Brightside solid perfume arrived I squealed with delight. Previous to this I believe there had only ever been two other Brightside scented products, the bubble bar and the Sunrise soap. The Bubble Bar was one of my very first Lush products so its scent will always be one I think fondly of. As soon as you take off the Brightside solid perfumes lid you can see and smell exactly why Lush describe it as the ‘antidote to gloomy days.’ The bergamot, tangerine and mandarin oils within it all work together to make one of Lush’s most uplifting fragrances.

Lush’s solid perfumes consistency visually resembles Vaseline, they are however not as soft and easily manipulated to the touch as Vaseline is. I’d describe them as more like a cooled, solid candle wax. The warmth of your finger heats up just enough of the product to put on your wrists and neck. I like its consistency as it stops you from using too much by accident. A downside to the solid perfumes is that I can’t spritz a little on my clothes or hair.

Applying the Brightside solid perfume is very easy, even when you’re on the go. It can slip in your pocket or any hand bag or purse ready for when you need it. Much like the Brightside bubble bar and body lotion I had such high expectations of this solid perfume. Unfortunately I found that even when I applied a more than generous amount to my wrist its scent faded within 10 minutes. I have heard this is very common with products that are applied to the skin when they have bergamot, tangerine or mandarin oil in though.

Maybe one day Lush will create a liquid perfume in the Brightside scent, I think being able to spray a little on your clothes and hair would help carry the scent for longer. It appears that skin just seems to soak Brightside solid perfume up leaving no trace of it at all in just a few minutes. I do however feel that the solid perfume while in the tin, was a perfect match scent wise to the much loved Brightside bubble bar, Lush did well with this product in that aspect.

The Comforter Solid Perfume from Lush

19554980_1993546407541244_8635120718968266144_nOver the past 12 months my love for the Comforter scent has grown at a ridiculously rapid rate, the bubble bar was actually my very first Lush product. I of course couldn’t get enough of it, it alongside the Twilight bath bomb was what first got me hooked on Lush.

When Lush Oxford Street opened their doors presenting London with the Comforter shower cream I couldn’t wait to get my hands on a bottle. Once I got it home it however smelt completely different from the bubble bar, I didn’t like it at all, for me the blackcurrant scent was far too rich, it actually reminded me of the salty drink they make you drink after having a stomach bug. Without giving it a proper chance I gave my one bottle of The Comforter shower cream straight to my friend and from that day apart from the bubble bar, I went on in the Lush world ignoring all Comforter scented products.

It wasn’t until the Lush Kitchen released a Comforter scented shower jelly in 2016 that I decided to give the scent another try. I had been invited to attend the Lush Showcase as press and it was there in the Lush Kitchen pop-up-shop that I fell in love with the shower jelly. I am so glad I gave it another chance as it has become one of my all time favourite Lush scents, I even love the shower cream now!


My new found love of the Comforter scent had unfortunately started to blossom far too late in the chronology of the Lush world. I’d missed the Comforter solid perfume,  body conditioner and body lotion in the Lush Kitchen, all I could do was cross my fingers and hope that something that was Comforter scented (and new to me) would appear on the Lush Kitchen menu…

A few weeks ago I got very lucky and found a The Comforter Solid Perfume on ebay, it was actually cheaper than if I had ordered it straight from the Lush Kitchen, it was basically brand new to look at too. I am still very pleased with myself. The seller hadn’t even taken off the lid so it was as fresh as a daisy. When it arrived in the post in such perfect condition, I squealed with delight!

The Comforter solid perfumes consistency visually resembles Vaseline, it however isn’t as soft and easily manipulated to the touch as Vaseline is. I’d describe it as more like cooled, solid candle wax. The warmth of your finger heats up just enough of the product to put on your wrists and neck. It is the perfect consistency as it stops you from using too much by accident, a little of the perfume goes a very long way.


I have put my The Comforter solid perfume on every day since I got it and it doesn’t appear to be getting noticeably smaller on use, in fact it is showing no signs of usage at all. The product in the tin still looks just as full as when it was new, the only noticeable difference I can actually see is the unavoidable fingerprints left on its surface by my index finger from when I am applying it of a morning…

Out of all of the Lush solid perfumes that I have tried I’d say that The Comforter is one of the best. Not just because I can never get enough of the scent but because when you put it on it stays on. So many perfumes rarely stay on all day, I am therefore over the moon to know that a dab of the Comforter solid perfume WILL last on me all day, it even stays on me when I’ve been in the swimming pool doing my physio exercises!

The one and only negative thing I can say about this perfume is in regards to how it is packaged. Getting the product out of the small tin is annoyingly difficult with my long nails. I think all of the solid perfumes would work much better in a tube package like the ones used for Lush’s The Kiss lip gloss, doing this would make the product so much more practical when it comes down to application.
