Lush Gets Dirtier
It all started with Dirty. Lush’s unisex fragrance, a fresh fusion of spearmint, salty air, and herbal notes, was an instant hit when it was released in 2003—and has been begging for a range of similarly scented ancillaries ever since. But instead of going the traditional route and whipping up cleansers and moisturizers bearing that same unmistakable aroma, the brand’s head perfumer, Simon Constantine, has done something characteristically different (we’d expect nothing less from the quirky British brand). Each item in his new collection of Dirty bath and body products highlights a single component from the original scent, so should you layer them all—a shower gel, hair styler, shaving cream, and body spray—the resulting combination will smell an awful lot like the original eau. It should be pointed out, however, that each of the products smells divine on its own. The tingly, mint-laced shower gel and the super-gentle shaving cream made with oats, lavender, and honey are our reigning favorites; both are natural and handmade, like the entire Lush line. Consider it a dirty deed done right.
