Got the 15ml in the Dear John gift set. So glad that did. Initially when you first spray smells like woody cinnamon very pleasant. Then when dries, a more vanillary and very slightly citrusy scent comes through in combo and blimey it's gorgeous. Lasts a long time, calming aswell and sent me to sleep. Can't stop sniffing myself haha. Will...

This perfume is the perfect blend of warmth and nostalgia, I currently own the body spray (which I am furious that they discontinued it!) and I love nothing more than spraying it on a cozy jumper or spritzing it on a winter scarf. It smells like pure comfort to me, my fiance says when I wear it he loves snuggling up to me because it smells like home to him. I can honestly say without hesitation that this is the best thing to come out of lush, and that I never want to wear anything else as a personal fragrance, I am 24 and female, and I feel this fragrance suits everyone, please give it a try.

This is the most beautiful Lush perfume in my opinion. Slightly citrusy, smoky but without the incense accent; warm, really beautiful, durable, unique, most people write that it is a masculine fragrance, I disagree, it is too warm for a purely masculine fragrance, unisex in my opinion, but more feminine than masculine;

Dear John has to be one of my favourite lush perfumes. I can’t quite put my finger on it but when I wear it I feel an overwhelming sense of comfort.
But.... the price???? Now as much as I love this perfume, I don’t want to buy a 100ml bottle. Why isn’t there an option to buy a smaller version? Your prices have gone crazy. Has your target market changed? I personally believe that you will alienate a lot of your loyal customer base with these prices.
