Review: Lush - Lord of Misrule

This bath bomb, named after the ruler of the Pagan Feast of Fools, has a strange and magnificent fragrance created by Gorilla Perfumer Simon Constantine. This bomb will slowly dissolve to reveal a wine coloured centre, with the added sweetness of the world’s first fair trade vanilla absolute, perfectly balanced by the earthy scents of black pepper and patchouli oil - Lush.co.uk

This bath ballistic is from the Christmas 2013 Collection, it is new for this year and I do like to try new Lush bath products! The first thing I noticed about this was the colour, a very green colour with random yellow and pink dots. There is a giant star shape on the top of this as well.

Another point which I think makes this quite unique is the amount of time it took to fizzle away, it was well over ten minutes before this stopped fizzing around the bath and spitting colours out. Also there is no bits in this one so you can use it without having to put it in a sock to save on the clean up.

First you get a green colour, then it breaks down and the centre which is a pink / red colour begins to spurt out of it. Then things start to get even weirder, there is popping candy inside and you can hear the crackling from that in the water for around five minutes.

The water ends up a grey / brown colour and with the earthy scents and crackling noises you being to feel as if you are sitting in a witches cauldron! Not that it isn't a pleasant experience, it is just a different one from the more typical bathing experience.

The scent of this bath ballistic is quite an earthy one (not a dirty soil smell though), the main scent is patchouli but there is definitely a softer side to that which I imagine is the vanilla. The scent does linger on your skin for a good couple of hours afterwards.

This is quite a visually interesting bath ballistic, and it does take a good amount of time to fizzle away to nothing and as such it something you will want to have a fair amount of time to watch and to use. If I were to pair it with a bubble bar it would be Blue Skies and Fluffy Clouds because that has a similar patchouli and earthy scent to it.



I would get this again, I hope that Lush bring this back again next year.

£3.30 - Lush
