An interesting one!
Furze isn't a perfume I initially liked, and even now I don't feel all that easy with it. It's a very heady, strong mix of Mimosa (strong floral) mixed with Neroli (soapy smell), and raw Coconut (sweet & sour smell), followed by Vanilla (buttery creamy smell), and if that isn't enough to clash... I don't know what is!

That being said, I have started to get used to this one. As others have said, it has a distinct "suntan lotion" smell (from the coconut + vanilla). To me, this scent is like a mix between citrus and milk, or butter and soap. It's like it's almost rich and creamy but at the same time green, sharp and floral with bitter citrus.

Furze is inspired by the plant alternatively known as "Grouse" or "Broom", and the story goes that these plants (I have not smelled them myself) are essentially hillside bushes that have protective powers and value as ancient herbs etc. I also read that Simon Constantine wanted to create with this the English equivalent of the French "fougère" or "Fern" note (although this time inspired by an English shrub). It is said the flowers of this bush have a smell like that of sharp Coconut and Vanilla, and it would seem that is what he was going for here.

Either way the longevity and projection are amazing, this thing lasts on me over 20 hours and I can even smell it the next morning. I think all Lush scents come in Eau de Parfum if not pure Perfume concentration.

A bright, citric, creamy, buttery, milky, soapy floral. I can't really describe it any better than that. Try it!

Funky Apples
When I was young there was a "value" brand of shampoo in a transparent bottle with big green apples printed on the front. The fruity fragrance of the shampoo was literally mouthwatering; I'd lick my lips, well aware that it would taste awful, and yet I was still tempted! These were not crisp green apples from an earthly tree, these were larger-than-life, stupefyingly potent, space-age apples.
Another memory: my kindergarten's play dough, cooked simply from scratch; just flour, salt, water and food dye.
While nothing to do with the notes listed, I assure you that Furze is the quirky marriage of these two smells. The salty, fusty demi-gourmand of play dough subdues the sweet-sour tang of lurid green not-apples, a concession that tones Furze down into something actually wearable. The resulting scent is matte in texture, reminiscent of a food flavouring in that you can smell/taste it on your tongue as well as through the nose. Into the drydown vanilla and coconut take control, further smoothing out the faux-apple.

The downside to all this novelty is that Furze has a lamentable lack of projection. Even at first spray sillage was so piddly that even the store assistant admitted she could hardly smell it. I put the tester back, disheartened, but kept circling back to it until finally I gave in and took a bottle home. It's quite an original little scent, a fragrance ear worm. Funky, fun and just a little bit obnoxious!

(Und wenn deine Fürze riechen wie dieses Parfüm, Flaschen sie!)
