Twilight Liquid Perfume is a strong, heady and very unique fragrance offering from Lush. This is not one for the faint hearted and even though some might be put off by the heavy lavender presence in the scent, I would still recommend that you give it a try as you may be surprised by what you find.
What sets this and all of the many other Twilight-scented products (Shower Gel, Luxury Lush Pud Ballistic, FUN With A Twist) apart from other lavender-scented cosmetics, is that this is a far sweeter and more comforting aroma. This doesn't smell like the aged pot-pouri you find in your Grandma's home - nor the over-used cheap floral smell you find in the hundreds of gift sets laid out in your local Boots.
Instead, the combination of lavender, ylang ylang and tonka bean has been perfectly crafted to create a richly sexy aroma that makes an instant impression on your senses. Initially, you get the strong, flowery smell of fresh lavender that intertwines with the ylang ylang and creates a sweet, floral aroma. Underneath this is a strong tonka presence which gives the perfume a creamy, powdery and almost sugary note. It smells like fresh lavender sprinkled with dashings of icing sugar. In other words, pure perfection!
Together, these ingredients create a big, bold statement. Twilight is both potent and strong - yet it's not so heavy that you feel weighed down by it's scent. It's a highly relaxing aroma - one that makes its presence known some 4-5 hours after initial application - winning the award for one of the longest lasting Lush perfumes that I have experienced so far.
This is a seriously sexy perfume - one that should be made a permanent product on Lush's website. It will appeal to both young and older consumers - fans of lavender smells and those that are looking for something slightly different from the humdrum of boring perfumes. I happen to favour this over most of Lush's other fragrances and will definitely be buying more bottles if Lush ever bring it out again.
