I enjoyed reviewing the Lurk fragrances and it’s always a good idea to try samples of a perfume before making the initial purchase. In the long run this can save money and time so you won’t have to regret your decision and continue the search for a suitable scent. You can read my previous post for an overview of this amazing natural and sustainable brand here. Lurk has 5 fragrances and each aroma takes you on a different sensory journey. They come in 1/8 oz glass bottles along with a reusable muslin bag (it’s easy to recycle everything, even the packaging it’s shipped in, once you’re finished!). The organic jojoba oil used in the fragrances are domestically sourced by family owned farms with mature trees and have been cultivated for over 30 years. In addition, the fragrances have aromatherapeutic qualities (that explains the quick burst of energy I experienced), are TSA approved so their travel friendly, and has a shelf life of 12 months after opening. Now let’s see what they smell like…
AS 01 I noticed the floral scent right away and it’s due to the sweet rose notes. It has cedarwood, tuberose, and a hint of spice that gives a lively but subtle scent.
Main Notes- Cedarwood (Juniperus virginia), Rose Absolute (Rosa damascena), Black Pepper (Piper nigrum), Tuberose Enﬂeurage (Polyanthus tuberosa) in a base of USDA certiﬁed organic jojoba oil.
RSW 005 This had a powerful strong rose scent. The warm sandalwood, earthy rose with the citrus finish could spring life back into you especially after a workout or during a long dreary day.
Main Notes- Rose Absolute (Rosa damascena) and Sandalwood (Santalum album) in a base of USDA certiﬁed organic jojoba oil.
BS 003 The dry woods mix with citrus notes and sweet bergamot is a balancing act when combined. The fragrance also came across peppery but it was reminiscent of a scent that my friends from African indulge in for celebrations; it’s a cultural reawakening!
Main Notes- Sandalwood (Santalum album), Bergamot (Citrus bergamia), Lemon Peel (Citrus limonum), Black Pepper (Piper nigrum) in a base of USDA certiﬁed organic jojoba oil.
PRJ V1 This is one of my favorites and it has layers of jasmine, rose, and fresh petitgrain which is a bitter orange. The smell is sweet and the jasmine soothes me like a cup of tea!
Main Notes- Petitgrain (Citrus aurantium), Jasmine (Jasmine sambac), Rose Absolute (Rosa damascena) in a base of USDA certiﬁed organic jojoba oil.
TBP V1 Have you ever heard of a floral scent mixed with a black pepper base? Well Lurk does and it’s done well 🙂
Main Notes- Tuberose Enﬂeurage (Polyanthus tuberosa) and Black Pepper (Pipernigrum) in a base of USDA certiﬁed organic jojoba oil.
My all time favorite Lurk fragrances are the RSW 005, PRJ V1, and AS 01. I loved them from the moment I applied it and purchasing these will be a breeze because I know exactly how they smell! Check out the entire site and products at LurkMade.com.
