I’m not sure if I like it or not. Sometimes I like it, sometimes I don’t. Sometimes I smell that weird spicy apple note and sometimes I smell lemongrass, which I like. I don’t wear it very often. The sillage is great however.

I kinda wish they’d kept the name “Fizzbanger” instead of “Love” for this perfume. Maybe “Mother’s Love” or something of the like. It seems almost too cliche to use rose and cinnamon (can scents be cliche?) as a representation of love and its many incarnations. When I see the word “Love” on products I think of the generic Valentines Day/romantic fluffery so I think it’s a bit misleading if you go in with that expectation. This to me isn’t really a “sexy” scent. It’s too gentle. French toast, fruitloops, and orange juice on the breakfast table at Nana’s house. The jasmine sorta behaves in this, at least, and the soapy factor toes the line and pretty much fades after a bit. It has a strong underlying layer of women’s body powder, just shy of being cloyingly sweet.
It’s a lovely fruity/floral/gourmand fragrance with an interesting push-pull between childish and matronly, but the scent is just too concentrated for me to wear. I simply like taking out my sample vial on occasion and revisiting it for the sake of nostalgia.
Side note, my skin is very sensitive to cinnamon oil. I’ve never applied “Love” heavily or to anywhere delicate, so I don’t know if it would cause this same reaction, but I’m not taking any chances…. *suspicious glare*

Did they change this? The new (2016) bottle (with no spray) smells a bit pongy.
Gomonigra – 2019-07-20:
This is the perfect pick-me-up! Zingy, fresh, spicy and wonderfully cheery. I am not sure how it is a floral fruity (more of a spicy fruity, spicy apple to be exact, it has a lovely fruity sweetness to it), but let’s just say I am loving the freshness and the spice contrasting. If you need an uplift after a long hard, tiring day, this is it. Bravo Lush (you are my new mini obsession), it has a little of the Breath of God like smoke, but nothing major to my nose. Simple, but soooo good.

Edit: I totally smell straight lemony lemons before the dry down. I had just showered earlier and I think the other smells hid it. Once it dries I smell the apricot that I’m sure lush mentioned, and all the resions.

This smells like a sticky apricot covered in burnt sugar (or chronic resin 🙂 sitting in a room filled with incense. Thankfully I don’t smell any cinnamon. I got a sample of this and the smell of freedom, and today was the first-time I wore this seriously. The resinous smell is fantastic it reminds me of a drippy heart. Like an artistic rendition of a heart wrapped in thorns, because its got a beautiful quality like the happiness love brings but there is still darkness there. Love is always shrouded in darkness. True love is pain too. But I digress. Maybe I’ve just had a s**try weekend because some dude —- who cares. I like this perfume. I need to get orange blossom.

Absolutely adore this. This still has the same feel and vibe as all the other Lush perfumes but this one is a little gem!
It opens very sexy and fresh, the citruses/lemongrass and apple are there but they are not the most prominent notes. I get a HUGE smokey vibe from this perfume that just gets more and more intense as it dries.
It smells like dry jasmine, sexy and smoky. It’s almost medicinal and quite masculine in my opinion. Smells leathery, woody and very husky.
Mine is aged quite alot. I’ve had it for some time and I’m pretty sure it smells different to when I got it new. Just shows this perfume has character and morph.

I was so excited when this came out for Valentine’s Day in 2011,.but when i tried it – spraying it on my neck, it started to nip and then burn my skin! I had to wash my neck with toner water, and a lot of it before it stopped stinging.
I do have extremely sensitive skin, and I’m the only person I know who had this reaction. I think im sensitive to lemongrass 🙁
kukvam – 2019-07-20:
This is herby, incense, has a little bit of a church scent in the backgroud, with bam citrus …. did buy blind …. oyoyoyoye ….. this is not a fragrance

Lush Love is a sweet, fruity fragrance with a subtle hint of spice. It’s actually rather delicious on the skin, uplifting too.
This fragrance opens with a strong citrusy burst of lemon, bergamot and lemongrass. These notes are both crisp and sweet, so with no hesitation I would recommend Lush Love for Spring and Summer wear. Red apple further compliments this fragrance’s fruitiness, however a touch of cinnamon in the heart creates a different mood, spicing it up.
Lush Love does have a somewhat medicinal aroma, however I don’t consider it unpleasant in any way. All the notes in this composition tend to work together really well, and once again Lush has created a fragrance that I really like.
To my nose this fragrance is a feminine scent, but I wouldn’t discourage men from wearing it too. I believe Lush Love to be one of the easiest scents to like from this quirky brand. Its sweetness will really appeal to the younger generation.
As you would expect from Lush, Love has excellent longevity and sillage. I’m not sure where you’d find this limited edition, but I tried mine in a sample set. It’s one fragrance from this brand that I wholeheartedly recommend testing.

Clean rose with some orange. Not overwhelming but romantic summery and girly. I really enjoy this when I’m feeling (not acting) flirtatious.

Lush is my favorite bath and skin products, and their fums isn´t far away. First spritz of Love is strong lemon and lemongrass, really strongly and loud. After about half an hour it settles down and a fresch crisp appelscent whith hints of cinnamon appeares. This is a thoroughly uplifting and fresch scent… Divine :)) For me this is a feminin scent, a wonderful one!
One of my favorite from Lush along with Karma, 25:43, Ginger and Orange blossom… by the way… I love most everything from Lush :))
Lush är min favorit produkt gällande bad och hud och deras parfymer är inte långt ifrån. Första spritzen av Love är skarp citron och citrongräs, verkligen skarp och frän. Efter ungefär en halvtimma börjar den tona ner och en fräsh äppeldoft med inslag av kanel framträder. Detta är en verkligt upplyftande och fräsch doft … Divine :)) Jag anser att detta är en feminin doft, himmelsk!
En av mina favoriter från Lush, tillsammans med Karma, 25:43, Ginger och Orange blossom… för övrigt äääälskar jag det mesta från Lush.

Oh nooooo, I don’t like it on me!!! Smells like nasty air freshener! Had to spray 2 other perfumes over it just to make it tolerable to wear today. Oh well, at least I only bought the teeny tiny vial.
stanislav-spb – 2019-07-20:
I will say first that I only have the solid version of this perfume, not the liquid. This smells a lot like some sort of vitamin C to me – kind of artificial and medicinal. Upon first applying, I got a lot of lemon, some sort of spiciness lurking in the background, maaaaybe a hint of apple, quite possibly, quite possibly not, and that same medicinal smell. It doesn’t change very much over time.
нина31 – 2019-07-20:
If you girls don’t like it on yourselves (I know I didn’t), try it on your BF’s/husbands instead! You’ll be amazed.
The fresh lemongrass/apple combo smells amazing on guys, a lot more exciting and unusual than if a woman would wear it. I’m not saying that it’s bad on women, but it’s definitely more groundbreaking on men in my opinion. Very unisex because of it’s natural ingredients, if it was more synthetic it would have been less unisex. Good luck experimenting!
RAMZEC333 – 2019-07-20:
LOVE the fact that this is natural and therefore not offensive when inhaled deeply. thoroughly uplifting and euphoria enducing – just as freshly fallen in love. This, in my opinion, is the best apple fragrance on the market. It has a lovely gourmand side to it that is thoroughly enjoyable, not overly sweet. A young at heart fragrance yet edgy enough to make a great signature scent. This by the way is also a fabulous study blend. It works better than caffeine in keeping me going…. I use the fragrance balm stick all the time when trying to concentrate. And boy does it help! great potion from lush – better than Snow White, I think!
Mater-N57 – 2019-07-20:
Upon applying Lush LOVE, I immediately detected a strong jasmine presence. Within minutes, it was completely overtaken and clobbered by lemongrass oil. A few minutes later, the cinnamon began surfacing and mingling with the lemon grass. In the end, this creation reminded me quite a lot of the scent of a lemon grass and maté tea from Numi. But is it perfume?
To be honest (quoi d’autre?), this particular entry in the Lush line-up seems less like a composed perfume and more like a simple mixture of essential oils. The lemongrass is really heavy and overbearing and crushes any subtlety which might have been hidden within this perfume.
urd562Diobtetty – 2019-07-20:
Fantastic (I have just purchased the solid version), first thing I smell is the lemongrass, reminds me of lemon and something else, can’t figure out, what, but honestly, I don’t care, just enjoy the scent. Then the apple and cinnamon kicks in, and slowly it turns into mom’s yummy apple cake with some lemon. Give it a try, I dare say.
man1877 – 2019-07-20:
Very interesting, love it, but don’t like to wear it. Fresh (but not plain) citrus-cinnamon scent. It reminds me of ginger, with the same spicy fresh quality.
I think I like this scent more in bath products, and maybe as a home fragrance. I can’t put my finger on it why, but I don’t think it’s suitable as a perfume. I will try it again at a hot summer evening, that may be perfect, because it’s refreshing, but also full of mystery and promisses, and it has a strange attractive power.
VictorB – 2019-07-20:
I love it, but it doesn’t sit on my skin very well. Try before you buy 🙂
kolyaba – 2019-07-20:
A wonderful fall scent! Apple goodness w/ other complex scents!
gareee – 2019-07-20:
Love is supposed to smell like the Fizzbanger ballistic, but it smells mostly like very cheap cologne, really masculine but not in a good way. If you want to have a good smelling apple and cinnamon perfume you should better try All About Eve from Joop.
yba325speagoessenda – 2019-07-20:
Another so-so quite meaningless Lush perfume.
It started fruity and strong on my skin and in a hour or so became like a non-descriptive masculin scent more towards unisex cologne. Longlasting for sure but what for?
jhgvnbvc – 2019-07-20:
I’m not really sure what to make of this. When I first put it on I could smell the lemon really strongly and I thought it was quite loud and feminine. After about half an hour I smelt my wrists again and it wasn’t as loud and it had gone quiet masculine on me. I think I prefer the after smell my self. it is definitely a day time perfume
RVlad – 2019-07-20:
Oh they have some wonderful stuff-they’ve actually been doing perfumes for quite a while:Imogen Rose and Ginger are my favourites:)
Mr.Medvedevam666 – 2019-07-20:
Didn’t know that Lush was doing perfume, must go into the shop and try it. It sounds lovely and if it’s like their other products I will probably have to buy a bottle. Lush is my fav bath products, we will have to wait and see 🙂
