Frozen Solid Perfume

While I am still slightly bitter that Respect Your Elders wasn't voted in during this year's perfume release, I was very happy that Frozen was one of the fragrances to make an appearance. Ever since the release of the bath bomb earlier this year at the Oxford Street Flagship store, the scent has become a firm favourite of mine, and I was happy in the knowledge that I would be able to wear the scent around with me all day, and enjoy it time and time again.

Although Frozen Liquid Perfume was unique in being the only brand new fragrance to be released this year, the solid edition was one of four new scents making their debut in this format. And while I am an advocate of liquid perfumes more than the solid editions in most cases, this one is definitely on par with its liquid sibling. 

Containing both grapefruit and neroli oil, this perfume has a beautifully-gentle but equally poignant fragrance. Described by Lush as being 'a little sunshine to melt the iciest of moods', this unique aroma is timeless, and one that'll be loved by consumers of all ages - even if they dislike the film it is inspired by. 

The sweetness of the neroli is the redeeming feature here - offering a refreshingly sweet but beautifully green floral aroma. Coupled with the grapefruit oil, which adds a thin layer of fruity, tangy goodness, this wonderful, fresh floral fragrance is like immersing yourself in a bed of freshly-watered flowers - one that has been given a sprinkling of grapefruit.

True to the bath bomb of the same name, this solid perfume offers an uplifting, fruity layer of grapefruit  on the surface - one that compliments the floral element of the rose and gives Frozen such a relaxing, beautiful fruity smell. The neroli sits underneath the citrus element - emitting a sweetness that blends in with the grapefruit, while releasing a slight grassy note that ties in with the rose.

How this differs from the liquid edition is that there is slightly more emphasis on the floral aspects of the fragrance, once the perfume has been applied to the skin. While the bottled scent has equal notes of neroli and grapefruit, I found that the solid perfume gives a much warmer flowery smell and the fruity element fades a little bit quicker. 

As with most of Lush's other solid perfumes, it melts very easily under your finger and can be applied with ease onto your pulse points. While it does dampen very slightly once it's settled on the skin, and offers a slight waxy element to the smell as you'd expect, the basic premise of Frozen is still very much at the forefront of the product, and it does present the wearer with the very smell that they'd expect to find in this solid perfume.

If you find that the perfume doesn't work for you, you can opt to massage a little onto your fingers and then run these through your hair - giving your locks a burst of wonderful fragrance and offering you the joys of catching a whiff of the scent every time a breeze ruffles your hair.

While it's not my favourite fragrance from the release, and I'd still prefer to use the liquid edition over this version, it definitely replicates the popular scent well and makes an appreciated addition to Lush's perfume range. You may not be looking forward to the upcoming colder months, but after using this beauty, you definitely won't be feeling frozen.

  1. How is the longevity of this product? I understand from your other posts that solid perfumes do not last as long as the liquid; I live in the US and £26.50 is a little pricey for shipping although solids are also nice. Thank you.
