Well it looks like LUSH has resurrected a shower gel. Normally I would be pretty happy about this since I love the shower gels. I think they are a great value (a little goes a long way) and they are multi purpose (I wash my hair with them too). I have never smelled Tramp before, but it has be enemy, Patchouli in it. Patchouli and I just don't get along. What do you think about Tramp? Are you jusmping for joy at it's return? What do you wish they had brough back instead? It could be a shower gel, or something else.

Tramp isn't a discon across the pond (I think they were planning on discontinuing it, but then the UK forumites were going to stage a naked protest at the factory and that was too much for them to handle so they changed their minds, lol) and I find it's a lovely scent. Patchouli is my number one favourite scent and I love all green scents. It especially smells lovely on my boyfriend and hangs around for a really long time. I find it's the strongest out of all the shower gels, except perhaps for Snow Fairy. Personally I'd love to see the return of Freeze.

My partner loves it too! In fact he was feeling ill tonight so i let him use a chunky of my Blue Skies in his bath. It'd a very sexy, sensual scent, but unlike other sexy, sensual scents it's not overtly feminine. It's very unisex.

I'm a bit disappointed myself. I've never smelled Tramp, but it doesn't sound like something that I would like all that much. I'd rather have another discontinued round so I can try a bunch of things I've never tried before. But I know what you mean about wanting more shower gels. I love the shower gels and would love to be a larger line of them.

I am so excited about the discon round. It will be my second round. I am a bit disppointed they never had an NA perfume round.. but I am happy that we are lucky enough to have another discon round.

I visited my local Lush store today. I did smell Tramp for the first time today. It gets so much hype on the NA forums, but I really don't understand why. The patchouli tends to knock you over. I do smell the mossy and green background to it but its overpowered by the patchouli way too much. I gave it a second chance by washing my hands with it at the store. Again, way too patchouli , and it didn't leave scent behind on my skin. It was definite pass for me. Instead, I got some of my faves like Brazed Honey bio-fresh and sunnyside.

yeah...I won't be liking it if the patchouli is so strong.

I was never a fan of Tramp. Like some of the other posters, I am not a patchouli fan in any way. (I lived with a girl in college for a semester that used to take a bath in the stuff and to this day the scent still makes me a bit queasy!) I would be a happy gal if they brought back Antiphilitron or Ibiza Party Shampoo! I can't wait to find out what gets remade this year.

I can't stand tramp. Patchouli hates me too, I just can't stand anything with patchouli in it, it stinks and gives me headaches. If they brought back Freeze, then I would be happy, especially since they're already calling for an unusually hot summer out here! A nice cooling minty shower gel would be amazing... but I'll be campaigning for World Peace ballistics when the NA discon round comes! Sweet minty bath bomb, with your gorgeous blue-green water...

hmm... i didn't like Tramp...for me that is. I do like the scent in general but it's not suited for me,i preffer sweet,candy,citrus,fresh & fruity scents. I gave it to my dad and he's addicted to Tramp now :) He actually managed to finish a 500 ml (big one)in just 4 months !! Now he needs a new one lol.

I haven't actually tried Tramp yet, mainly because I can't smell it in the shop, and I like really potent fragrances. I would have much preferred if they'd made a Honey I Washed The Kids shower gel or made Snow Fairy year round. People say it would lose its "special appeal" but I disagree. I'll probably try Tramp when I run out of everything else, but then I don't mind patchouli.

It's been back in the UK for ages now, in fact it never really seemed to go as such. Personally i love this stuff, such an unusual scent, like nothing else i've ever smelt, other than Blue Skies, which it smells similar to, but more green than. I'm a huge fan of patchouli, i can't get enough of the scent, so that's no doubt why i love tramp so much! I'm pleased they decided to keep it, it's so disctinctive and irreplaceable, which is why i think they kept it/brought it back. Lush seems to have lost rather a lot of it's distinctive smells as of late to be replaced by horrible, syntheticy stuff that smells just like all the other shower gels etc out there already.

I've never had the pleasure of trying Tramp, but I don't think I'm going to place an order just to have it. Right now I'm practically drowning in shower gels and I just can't order more. This is especially so now that the discon round is coming up. I need to use up as much as I can so I can feel good about placing a gigantic order then!

I don't like Patchouli, but I love Tramp. it's not that nasty, sharp, bitter Patchouli, but a lovely warm, soft Patchouli, and the Oakmoss is gorgeous. I use it to wash my dogs, as it makes their hair really soft and shiny without annoying their skin or noses. and on a mans skin chemistry its such a sublime smell

I have never tried tramp. I'm not sure if I would like it. They don't have it in the stores yet... and I'm not putting out the money until I get the chance to smell it.
