It's about time I tell you all about the latest perfume I have been loving. Even if you hate LUSH, it's worth checking out the perfumes. I'd never tried the perfumes since the change to Gorilla Perfumes. I actually didn't like them before. Shock horror eyy? When this arrived I was super excited, not only did I get to try the perfume early, but also it was my first LUSH perfume! 25:43 retails at £13 for 10ml or £28 for the 30ml bottle. A little pricey for a perfume that's not designer. However you won't find a perfume that smells like this.
If you've read my overview of the collection, you'll already know the special love story behind this perfume. If you haven't I'll fill you in.
This perfume was created for a very special Wedding. It was created by Mark Constantine OBE, for his Son Simon's wedding! Luckiest Son and Daughter in law ever if you ask me! The original was made up of two components, the Bride & Groom. Then blended together to make the wedding perfume. Here's 25:43.
"The unusual name is a reference to the amount of time taken for Mark to create the original wedding perfume – 25 minutes and 43 seconds. Funnily enough, 7 is often referred to as a lucky number and frequently used in love spells and if you add up the first set of numbers and then the second set, they both equal 7 … it’s a cosmic sign of romance!"
I think you'll agree that it really is a special perfume, if I was Mark's Daughter in law, I'd wear this every day of my life.
As for the design of the bottles, I like how simple the Gorilla Perfumes for LUSH are. Unlike celeb perfumes and all the designers out there covered in glitter and jewels, it looks 'classy'. Out of all my perfumes...I have a lot, this one stands out, because it's so clean and basic. Like all LUSH products, it's printed with the ingredients on the back, when it was made, code number and weight. The atomiser is really sturdy. I've dropped it, it hasn't broke and it doesn't feel cheap. When I've used mine up, I'll be cleaning and reusing for one of my perfumes in my handbag. I won't need to buy a travalo then.

The scent is certainly one of a kind, I haven't come across a perfume out there that smells like this. Pretty sure we will never find any dupes of this. If you love fresh, citrus scents then this will be for you. I adore citrus scents. What notes are in the perfume for it to smell gorgeous? Lime & Tonka have been blended together alongside additional notes of Ylang Ylang, lemongrass, vanilla & litsea. If you want a fresh start, new scent, new year and to celebrate spring, then this is the scent for you. The scent lasts all day, one spritz is all you need, use after your shower in the morning, you'll go to bed still smelling of this. It's wonderful. You can't help but smell this when you walk past it.
Have you dropped hints for this, this Valentines?
P.s You can get a sample size, £2.75, though I'd just buy the atomiser, one smell of this and you'll love it. & Any guys reading this, £3.95 will give you a sleek and sexy gift box to go with. We all know how bad guys are at wrapping. ;).
One last LUSH Valentines review to come, can you guess what it'll be?
