When Lush Gorilla Perfumes first came out I didn't have a chance to check them out, and last month I decided to drop by at my local Lush shop and dedicate some quality time to sniffing and trying out the fragrances. To start with there were a few which weren't my style, but then I asked the girl at Lush if there was anything with Jasmine my favourite scent note. And she instantly urged me to try the Sikkim Girls! Oh my there and then I fell in love with it. I must say I adore the packaging, kind of retro. Whatever fragrance I wear I top it off with Sikkim Girls just on my wrists!! This scent is so beautiful and sexy, some of the notes are Jasmine, Frangipani and Tuberose. When ever I smell it it just calms me down and makes me feel happy. If you love Jasmine I really recommend you try this one!!
Here is a fun little story about how Sikkim Girls came to be [taken from the Lush website]:
"Musician and composer Sheema Mukherjee was inspired after she had an experience with the Sikkim Girls. While hanging out in the oddly named ‘Hot Stimulating Café’ in Darjeeling, the café owner warned Sheema to stay away from the dangerous Sikkim Girls. When asked why, the owner said they had seduced and stolen away his son-in-law. Somehow they had accomplished this whilst covered head-to-toe and simply with a subtle yet sexual sway of their bodies."
