Can you tell that I’m a fan of Leonard Cohen? I couldn’t resist LUSH Gorilla Perfume (both solid and spray) in 1000 Kisses, which is inspired by Leonard’s song 1000 Kisses Deep, or rather a rendition of the song by Madeleine Peyroux. LUSH Gorilla Perfume in 1000 Kisses was one of my picks for my Valentine’s Day Gift Guide.
Now LUSH has come out with 9 new Gorilla Perfumes. I have to try Voice of Reason, which was inspired in part by Leonard: his face is even on the label.
Here is how LUSH describes its Voice of Reason Gorilla Perfume:
Inspired by literary figures like William Burroughs and Neal Cassady and wordsmiths like Gil Scott Heron and Leonard Cohen, this scent conjures the Beat Generation and spoken word artists congregating at street corners, basement clubs and coffee shops. Strong aromas of French Gitane cigarettes and espresso with sandalwood and tonka bean as the main ingredients.
I had a chance to sample Voice of Reason Gorilla Perfume and it really smells of tobacco. It would make a fine men’s fragrance.

- $24.95 for 0.3oz
- $59.95 for 0.8oz
- $60.05 for 0.9oz
- $89.95 for 1.4oz
