Gorilla Perfume at Lush
Gorilla Perfume at Lush was formed to showcase the perfumes of Mark and Simon Constantine.
Breath of God was created in 2010 by Simon Constantine. It is a unisex oriental woody fragrance that actually came about from two individual fragrances - Inhale and Exhale - which were inspired by the fresh clear air of the mountains in Tibet and the smoky scents that eminated from the Tibetan temples. Inhale is a light melony fragrance while Exhale is a deep, smoky incense. Combining these two together created Breath of God.
Tania Sanchez, co-author of the acclaimed handbook Perfumes: The A-Z Guide gave it a rating of five stars (the highest accolade) and said: “Wearing it, I feel a sense of wonder that so late in the perfume game there still can be such profound invention.”
Breath of God features notes of Amalfi lemon, Virginia cedar, vetiver, rose, ylang-ylang, grapefruit, neroli, black pepper, incense, melon, juniper, sandalwood and cade. It is a vegan and cruelty-free eau de parfum, edp.
