Ok, so first things first, Black-Luck was down the past night and the whole of yesterday due to a technical problem with the server. I am so sorry if you tried to access it and could not get trough! I am a total noob when it comes to computer problems myself, so I would like to thank my skilled brother who helped me get Black-Luck back on track.
During March, I reviewed two perfumes by Lush: Sun and Kerbside Violet. Both unique and completely different scents. Today, I am adding another star to the list: Sikkim Girls. This is a complex perfume that is supposed to be seducing and sensual. It contains jasmine, frangipani, tuberose and vanilla. It is easily the most luxurious perfume I own.
Sikkim Girls is very layered. It starts out pretty harsh and raw. The first scents I get when I spray it are jasmine and smokey incense. After a while, a sweet note comes out and the perfume turns spicy, warm and woody. After a few hours, the creamy vanilla comes to life and, mixed with the frangipani, creates a lovely sweet floral aroma. I love to wear this perfume full on in the evening, or lightly sprayed during the day. Getting wafts of it throughout the day gives me a very comforting feeling.
To me, Sikkim Girls is a very romantic scent. I can see myself wearing this on evening walks in the south of France, visiting fancy restaurants in Paris, going to underground art openings in New York or visits to the opera in Venice (yes, I am a dreamer). Sikkim Girls makes me feel like a slightly more sophisticated version of myself.
The longevity and sillage (how far away from the skin you can detect the scent, the perfume aura so to speak) are both really good with Sikkim Girls. It lasts for hours and hours.
I really don’t have a bad word to say about Sikkim Girls. Obviously scent is very personal, so sniff before you buy, but the quality of this perfume is really good. A little goes a long way and it also stays on the skin for a long time. The scent is layered and interesting and I personally love it. Because the scent is so layered, I would suggest that you make an extra effort before you buy the perfume by spraying it on your skin first. Let it sit there for a while, smell it a few times and then decide if you want to buy it or not.
You can buy Sikkim Girls here for €27,95 / 9g, €55,95 / 30g and €15,95 for the solid version.
