I saw this rebellious sounding fella on the weekly Lush Menu post Liz (notoriousliz_54) rolls out for our Lushie pleasure. The Lush Kitchen is based out of the UK and is priced in pounds. Shower gels are 11 pounds and vary in US dollars depending on the current exchange rate.
Sonic Death Monkey, I felt initially, was going to either be a scent I would love or hate. With notes of coffee, chocolate and citrus it could go either way. But when I used it in a hot shower it percolated all the senses and jogged my brain through many seasons. First, a blast of thick creamy cocoa butter and coconut that brought to mind endless tanning summer days. Then a sweet orange shaped and flavored chocolate, split into wedges. My stepdad loved getting those atrocious things in his stocking at Christmas, which usually meant my sisters and I would get one too. I don't pick up much actual coffee but maybe the creamy introduction could be construed as a milky latte.
I am not sure if I love it or hate it. It wasn't so bad in the shower and I ended up breathing it in a few times in a nostalgic haze. I think I will make a bubble bath out of it next.
Have you tried Sonic Death Monkey? Bought from the Lush Kitchen? What are you sudsing up with?
