Lush -- I never know if Lush counts as an indie etailer or not, but most people seem to think they are and they've got that air of indie chic about them, so....

Honey I Washed the Kids soap -- Sweet honey heaven cleanses and moisturizes sensitive skin. This is one of their best sellers and I have to say, it's really nice. The honey scent is really lovely and not at all fake. Like all Lush products, it's really scent saturated and strong; it lingered on my skin after I was out of the shower. That isn't necessarily a problem as long as I'm planning on wearing perfume that doesn't clash. It's a nice enough soap, although I didn't find it all that moisturizing.

Karma solid perfume Karma is Lush's signature scent--Spicy orange and patchouli keep you in harmony with your surroundings. Here's the thing; I like patchouli. It's a fantastic base note and, as long as the perfumer is using good quality, aged patchouli in moderation, it doesn't smell like dirty hippies. Lush? Isn't using it in moderation. At all. Karma smells like dirt and oranges. Not just that hit of earthiness/dirtiness/decay/overripness that some of the great perfumes have (Shalimar, for example), no, it smells like freaking sweaty, icky, dirt. I didn't even try it on, I was that turned off by it. At some point, I should actually use just a little to see if it does something different on my skin, but right now, I can't imagine why this is so popular.

Have you run across Karma in other preparations, or before now? That's definitely not how I've perceived it over the years, but I also haven't tried it in the solid perfume.

I don't think they reformulated it anytime recently, but I've missed that sort of thing before.

Blooddrop had an LE last year, Midsummer, which nailed Karma's aesthetic way better than Karma does. I am still kicking myself for not buying a bottle at the time, despite opting to get the leftovers formulated as bath products (softer and possibly better that way).
