Lush Vanillary Solid Perfume

Hi guys ! Happy Monday. Did everyone have a great weekend ??

If you follow me on Instagram you would have seen my little Lush haul a while back. I'm a huge fan of Lush products - and with good reason . The smell amazing - and make you feel like a million dollars. 

I saw another local blogger Green Lydia mention this as one of her travel favourites and rushes to my computer to order this online from Lush (I really wish there was a Lush closer to me ... But for now I'm more than happy with shopping online ) and knew I needed it. It was just my luck as this scent was finally back in stock ( I wanted to try it a few weeks earlier ) and ordered it .

As I have mentioned quite a few times here on the blog - I'm extremely sensitive so scents. I am one of those weird people that will break out in hives or get extremely itchy skin if I can't tolerate the smell . I know I love Vanilla scents - from coffee to candles I knew the chances of actually being okay with this perfume was pretty high. And I was just in luck - this scent doesn't irritate me at all.

Now I know, a solid perfume isn't for everyone. It basically looks like a lip balm. I love how it's actually travel friendly and the balm warms up on contact with your skin. A little really goes a long way - and I find it lasts quite a while on me (about a good 5/6 hours before the scent fades ) . The scent isn't too overpowering either . And the best part is you can throw it in your bag and touch up during the day easily too. I love this as a everyday scent and a date night scent. 

The Vanillary scent also comes in a 10ml and a 30ml perfume too - which is great if you are not a fan of this solid perfume. I find this easy to use - so for now I will be sticking to solid perfumes. 

From the Lush website :
A sweet, yet sophisticated vanilla fragrance. We blended Fair Trade vanilla absolute with tonka and added a hint of jasmine for a reassuring, powdered caramel perfume. Vanillary settles on the skin for a long lasting warmth that is difficult to resist. Layer with Vanilla Dee-Lite lotion and Vanilla Puff dusting powder for the ultimate sweet treat. 
Notes: vanilla, tonka, jasmine

The Solid Perfume retails for R120 from Lush stores or online. I might even try the Dirty scent or the Sun scent in Solid form next.

What is YOUR favourite daytime and date night scent ?? Have you tried a Lush solid perfume yet ?


  1. Oh yes! Solid perfumes are great for traveling! Very handy and you don't have to worry about the liquid limit! :)

  5. Is nice to try it :) great tips! Keep sharing!
    Take a look on my blog

  6. I've never tried a solid purfume before and to be honest it's the first time that i heard of it from you. Vanilla scents aren't my favourite scent at all even if i make food like custard i will rather pour a little orange essence in than Vanilla.

    1. I'm sure you'll love a solid perfume - just in a different scent. I can see you loving the more flower scents for sure. xxx
