Themed Thursday – Freeeeeedom

As today marks the date of the Scottish referendum on independence, what better products to feature that The Smell of Freedom, an inspirational blend of three distinct perfumes from Lush.

They work beautifully alone, but together form a masterpiece. The first, Old Delhi Station is warm and adventurous, and uses a ginger, clove and black pepper blend to add spice.FreedomOneLush

FreedomTwoLushThe second, Fire Tree, an uplifting is a herbal and woody scent; while Oudh Heart has a powdery, woody fragrance. It opens with a zingy burst, but quickly settles onto the skin with a spicy note.

Notes across all three include lemongrass, lemon myrtle, neroli, sandalwood, jasmine, ginger, fire tree, oudh, orris.FreedomThreeLush

And tying in with the theme of the day’s events, these can be worn separately, or blended together to create unique fragrances.
