Scent of the day: “Over and over" by Lush Gorilla Perfume (sour gummy bears)
Fresh, tart and sweet. This is what “Over and Over” is all about. Juicy and tart lemon and bergamot take centre stage, however, at the same time it’s a rather sugary sweet fragrance. A reviewer on Youtube, xpurr, compared the scent of the fragrance to sour gummy bears, the kind of gummy that was offered in Germany as “sour chips”, so lemony gummy bear sticks covered with a bitter and sour white powder. And that’s exactly how it smells. So if you’re familiar with these gummy bears, you know what “Over and Over” smells like.
The official note breakdown also lists fennel, coriander, iris and cypress. Unfortunately I don’t get any of these notes, but there is a green and aromatic undertone undoubtedly. I just wish it was more pronounced.
It’s nice and refreshing, but it just didn’t wow me. Maybe the reason is that I’ve already got a lot of great fragrances centred around bergamot/lemon/lime. Performance was average. The fragrance is quite loud during the first 15 minutes but quickly becomes a skin scent. I got whiffs of the fragrance during the first 2-4 hours but felt like reapplying in hour six. If you’re ok with a skin scent, it might work for you as a fragrance for the office.
It’s enjoyable, uplifting and fun. There are a lot of things I like about the fragrance, and I’ll enjoy wearing it. There are a lot of citrusy fragrances that are more boring and which perform much worse than this one, but all in all I wouldn’t get another bottle (or a backup as it’s a limited edition and no one knows whether it will make it into the regular collection). This is the cheapest of the six lushlabs fragrances and certainly worth every cent, so I don’t regret buying it. The other ones I’ve tested so far are just more interesting to my nose. I’m sure a lot of people will fall in love with this sunny and bright fragrance.
