Have you tried the new Butterfly Ballistic?

I placed an order today. I debated whether or not to get this ballistic. I'm curious to try it, but as some of you may remember my ballistic discussion, I think the small 3.1 oz ballistics are rip off. I decided not to try it until I get to smell it in the store. Instead I ordered Ne Worry Pas, Sakura (my fave!), Bathos, Mud Flats, the Comforter and Temple of Truth. Have you tried this new ballistic? What do you think? Is it worth the money despite the size?

I haven't tried the new butterfly ballistic yet, but I get to sniff it this weekend when I stop by the Nanaimo Lush shop! Based on the description and reviews I've read, it sounds like a very pretty bath, but the scent is probably not my style, I doubt I'll buy one. I'm more looking forward to smelling Sugar Rush, but that one's not going to be available in NA stores for a while yet is it?

The size usually doesn't matter to me if the ballistic has enough scent to it. I've been more disappointed with some of the bigger ones than the smaller ones. Having said that, I really don't like the scent of the Butterfly Ball. Dry it smelled of urine and wet it smelled of nasty chemicals. I was lucky to be able to smell it at my local store, because I definitely would have been disappointed if I had bought it without smelling it first. Opinions really seem mixed about this ballistic, some really love it and others hate it for the reasons I mentioned above. I get the same smell dry from Chelsea Garden, so if you don't like that ballistic then you might not like the Butterfly Ball either.

Yes, ive tried it, and i loved it! For a small ballistic it really doesa have a nice strong scent, which i like becuase my bath water tends to smell quite chloriney so this cover that smell up well. The scent is lovely, as is the colour, and the pretty butterfly anf other bit that come out of it are really pretty, you get such an amzing looking bath! Using one of these is a really nice experience, definately well worth the money, despite the size.

I have tried it. I absolutely love it! I ordered my first one from UK... but I just got two at Orlando Lush. They smell so good - and they make the water all pretty and pink. And the best thing - the flowers inside are lavender colored - not all dried up and brown like some of the other bombs.

I absolutely adore it. straight up into my top five. I don't find the size is a problem with the smaller ones. Butterball has a lovely smell and all that gorgeous cocoa butter. Butterfly ball makes the water a really stunning colour, and smells amazing.

I have one sitting in my bathroom... It's a bit of a pain, I'm at uni and I don't have a bath there so I hoard bombs and then I go home and do nothing but bathe for a week. I don't even like the look of the butterfly ballistic! The butterflies in the middle are cute (I broke it in half to see them) but it just smells like Chelsea Garden to me!
