Blogmas Day 13 - It's Here! Lush Rose Jam Review

If you read my Blogmas Day 7 - Lush Fragrance Party Exclusive! post, then you'll know I've been patiently waiting on my parcel from Lush. Well, today, at 8.10am, it finally arrived! As soon as I heard the postman I leapt out of bed to get my parcel. However, I decided to wait until I got home from work to open it, as I knew I would be so distracted by what was inside that I would be late. I'm home now, and it's time to open my parcel...

I love that once I cut open the side of the box, and began to open it, I found this little note printed inside. So cute, and company's don't usually do things like this, so it was a nice touch.

Another lovely thing I noticed, was that when I looked at the invoice which was at the top of the box, there was a signature from handy, which I could tell was hand signed, and not just printed on, to say that he had personally hand picked my items for me. Not really a big deal to many people, but I just thought it was a nice thing to add to a boring piece of paper.

Now to the good part...

Nicely packaged and padded, to protect my lovely products. By this point I was so excited and couldn't wait to tear into it to see what I'd got, but of course I had to take my photographs first. A spicy scent reached my nose as soon as the box was open, and I knew this must be my soap.

At the last minute, I decided to throw in a bar of soap from the Limited Edition section of the website, as these are the products which aren't available instore, and I thought I might as well while I was placing an order. I had a quick look and decided on this bar of Spice Mountain soap. I've just checked and this is now no longer available to buy online, so I can't link you to a place to buy it, but it smells like Christmas. It is a combination of clove, lime and cinnamon, and is a spicy scent which I think is perfect for this time of year. I'll be using it very soon and I'll have a review up for you very soon!

Now, on to what you read this post for... the Rose Jam perfume! My first thoughts when I saw the bottle was on how small it was, it's only 27ml, and I'm really sad that they only have bottles this size, as I don't want it to run out! I'm smelling it on my wrists right now, and it just smells ah-mazing. It's exactly the same scent as the Rose Jam Bubbleroon (yes, this is what Lush calls them, I didn't make this word up). I just want to eat it up. I can't even describe it in any other way than to say it smells like roses, jam, and a hint of lemon!

I've seen posts and tweets from other people talking about the Lush fragrances and I'm assuming they may be coming over to the US sometime soon? Hopefully they are, as you all need to experience this. To the UK, please bring this as a permanent item, as I'm going to have to ration this until you do!

Did anyone else manage to get a hold of any of these exclusive fragrances? Link me to your blog post if you did so I can read all about it!
