Hair is a fabulous fragrance diffuser and probably the best spot to spray perfume if you want to make an impression.
Smell and therefore fragrance are integral parts of our lives. Smells access our brains in the most primal way. The olfactory bulb is part of the limbic system – which is sometimes called the emotional brain – so fragrance can trigger memories because they are so intimately bound up with our emotions. Who hasn’t been transported back to their school days by a whiff of institutional carpet and cleaning fluid, and who fails to remember the scent of a loved one?
The word perfume has its roots in Latin. Meaning “through smoke” the word describes fragrancing the environment through burning aromatic woods, spices and resins. Historically though, fragrant oils, waxes, waters and balms that brought the scents of nature into human control were so costly they became associated with wealth and luxury.
To enjoy the scent of something you love on your hair, you need Lush Cynthia Sylvia Stout Shampoo.
A gentle shampoo made with beer, vinegar, and lemon juice to give your locks a glossy sheen. Tradition has it that lemon juice and beer are great for the hair, so we’ve added lots to this shampoo. Lemon juice is also a terrific cleanser, whilst stout is rich in protein, which helps give the hair body and strength.
