****Popping bomb ****
*****Glitter, Popping candy, Sherbet****
‘Dragon’s Egg makes bathtime exciting as it fizzes and crackles and changes the colour of your water to a gorgeous citrusy gold. Its scent is reminiscent of lemon sherbet, with a hint of jasmine, leaving you feeling great and ready for a good day. Its citrus scents leave you feeling transformed and invigorated.’
I think it was the Game Of Thrones/Middle Earth geek in me that drew me to the Dragons Egg bath bomb. It certainly was a spectacle and smelt amazing but for me it was missing the finale. It started off well it fizzed quite quickly and the popping candy gave it an amazing fiery feel to it. As the ‘egg’ turned in the water it started oozing a glittery orange bubbles and as it spun made a really nice pattern on top of the water. The room started to fill with the smell of lemon sherbet which just awoke my inner child. The water under the bubbles was glittery and golden and i noticed transparent egg shares floating in the bath. These egg shapes later just turned into ‘gung’ and started making me quite uneasy and i did question if something had gone wrong with the coca butter but once i fished it out all was well again.
As i lie there in the golden water i contemplated if bath bombs were named and then made or made and then named. The reason behind this was because i couldn’t work out why there was no finale. Its like and amazing film with an unconcluded ending. I came to the conclusion, however that the Dragons Egg was named after it was made as thinking of it from that perspective made it more exciting. If you were given the name and created the egg around it, surly you would have put a dragon in it somewhere? The actual reason was that the Dragons Egg was one of the first bath bombs to have glitter in so the glitter was the finale. This certainly settled my mind as dragons love gold so this certainly was a treat for those used not non-sparkly bath bombs.
All in all i liked this bomb, it had some great qualities and smelt really lovely and full of nostalgia. I think this would appeal to a geeky friend who may not already be a lush fan and those who love citrus baths. I feel it would have been better with a representation of a dragon in the centre but i can settle for glitter.
