The rising

Small, but powerfully scented, the jasmine flower became the symbol of the Arab Spring uprising. Wearing a jasmine flower indicated you were part of the revolution. As the protests spread, the gesture became so powerful that the Chinese government banned the wearing of jasmine and collapsed the jasmine trade.JasReLush 


The peeps at Lush were inspired by the potent message a simple flower could bear, and so created Jasmine Revolution as part of their Gorilla Perfume range.

This perfumed incense includes notes of jasmine and ylang ylang.
