LUSH Gorilla Perfumes - B Side Fragrance Challenge



Earlier this month Lush White City set me a challenge to test out three unknown and unlabeled fragrances from the Gorilla Perfume B Side range. I accepted the challenge and here are my thoughts on the mysterious fragrances in question.





I have the three fragrances here and I'm going to do my best to explain the notes and emotions these fragrances evoke and ultimately which one is my favourite. 
So first up is fragrance number one ?
This fragrance has a strong sherbet lemon top note and is ultra sharp and sweet on first sniff. It has an almost household cleaner scent to start but as it dries down a sugary candy affair evolves like candy floss and rainbow dust this fragrance reminds me of a circus or funfair with fireworks and rockets in the sky, it really is magical in every scents (see what I did there) of the word.
Next number two ?
Not my favourite of the bunch slightly too perfumey to me. It starts out smelling strongly of ylang ylang and then softens into an almost cocktail like scent slightly fruity and alcoholic, like a Cosmo good for a night out with the girls but not for me. 
And finally mystery fragrance number three ?
Slightly like soap and citronella to start but as it warms up it blossoms into a mouth watering apple and cinnamon scent. It reminds me of a country fete, bobbing for apples, lucky dip its childlike but tactile.

So there we have it! but ultimately the question remains which one is my favourite? Well it has to be number one, I love anything sickeningly sweet and it is on another level of sweetness, now all I need is Lush to tell me what it is so I can get myself a bottle.
