Floating Flower Bath Bomb

It was during my first ever Valentine's Day release that Lush brought out the original Floating Flower Bath Bomb. This was the year of vibrant pink for the company, and this particular bath bomb was no exception: a vivid flower-shaped ballistic with layers of pink, orange and green. While not my favourite by far, it was definitely a factor that kept me interested in Lush after this point, and I was glad to see it re-released a few years later in the Lush Kitchen. 

Fast forward to 2019 and Lush chose to bring out another bath bomb called Floating Flower. With absolutely nothing in common to the original release, this latest addition is far more subtly beautiful to look at, and the fragrance is perhaps one of the greatest, not delicate floral aromas that the company have produced in years. 

Containing fresh chrysanthemum as the main ingredient, this limited edition Mother's Day bath bomb offers a gentle but very prominent floral aroma. If you're looking for something natural smelling, and something so naturally sweet that it brings tears to your eyes, this is definitely the one for you. Alongside this, the inclusion of lavender oil adds a beautiful herbal layer underneath, that just helps to thicken out the natural smell of the flowers. 

I'll be honest and say that I couldn't really tell you why this bath bomb made such an impression on me: it's not as if I am a huge fan of floral smells. Yet, there is something so natural life-like about the aroma of Floating Flower, that I couldn't help but fall in love with everything that it had to offer me.

In the water, the bath bomb sends gorgeous rivers of pastel blue across the surface, while the cocoa butter decoration on top delivers an extra boost of moisture to indulge your skin with. You only have to bathe in the water for a matter of minutes to feel the difference this latter component makes to your body, and my skin felt super moisturised and nourished afterwards.

Once fully dissolved, the smell lingers in and around the tub: offering gentle waves of fragrance every time you move around in the water. The scent is definitely not what I would call potent by any means. However, it is strong enough that you'll be able to detect it on your skin, and around your bathroom, for a good hour or so afterwards.

There is something rather old-fashioned about the scent of this: something that makes you think of the little old lady that lives down the street from you. Yet there is also something so light and refreshing that makes it a very modern-smelling bath bomb as well. 

Ultimately, Floating Flower wasn't a bath bomb that I was expecting to like, and yet I ended up falling in love with it very much. This would definitely fair well being released as a regular bath bomb, as the appeal of the aroma would make it a popular seller for certain. I can only hope that it makes a reappearance again, as I would love to buy a few more to enjoy in the warmer months.
