American Cream

American Cream

Milkshake mist
3.6 out of 5 Customer Rating
Item No. 09222
American Cream is inspired by the creamy milkshakes popular in American diners in the 1950s, with all the vanilla-strawberry sweetness that their devotees loved. The scent first popped up in the bestselling hair conditioner of the same name, and has gone on to fragrance many products over the years—from sparkly glitter bars and shower creams to a solid version of the original hair-softening fave. But finally fans can take its sweet nostalgic scent with them wherever they go with a spritzable perfume. On a first blush, you'll detect notes of warm vanilla mixed with the sweetness of fresh berries. Then comes the refreshing herbal aroma of sage and lavender. Bottoms up!

I'm been praying for an American Cream perfume for literal YEARS. Two months ago, I furiously was googling "American Cream perfume" and was seriously considering ordering a dubious dupe lol. Today, I went to Lush for my birthday and asked the salesperson if there would ever be an American Cream perfume and she was like "Girl, you are in luck. It's here!!" and I about fell out. I bought the perfume in the full size and the solid and I'm in absolutely heaven. Best birthday ever! My husband loves it too and he doesn't like vanilla scented stuff. I don't know what I'll do if you guys discontinue this. This will be a life long purchase for me!!

Cool, clever vanilla.

I don't get the whole "strawberry milkshake" thing. What I do get is a very nice refreshing vanilla compliments of a cooling lavender and aromatic sage notes. The only downside for me would be that the lasting power and projection are pretty weak. However, I have gotten some wonderful compliments from people when they are in very close proximity (i.e. a hug).

Really wish I could love this.

Kind of disappointed. It's not at all as it's described to be. Possibly my fault, it was a blind purchase. My coworker adores every perfume I've ever worn around him, especially LOM. He recently purchased a bottle for his girlfriend and she too loves it. However, this perfume was too offensive for him and he described the scent EXACTLY as I can smell it: powdered sunscreen. Theres is nothing unique about this scent and now I can't wear it without thinking of sunscreen and powder combined. Not a fan. On the plus side, with this odd combination of notes, I can see why it would smell girly for others, but not for me.

This perfume smells exactly like the hair conditioner, with a touch of added sweetness to it . It's subtle , one spritz and people can only smell it from very close up .. but that's why I enjoy this . You can add a few more sprays for extra scent , or only use one to not trigger any headaches . I would describe the scent as comfortable .

Finally my favorite scent as a perfume!

I love the scent and it lasts fairly long! I was worried that the scent wouldn't be like the body wash, but it's identical. I'm so glad they finally made American Cream perfume, it's the only perfume scent from Lush that I absolutely adore.

I am so happy Lush made this a perfume. My FAVORITE scent. I love a perfume that lasts, isn't too strong, and doesn't irritate my sensitive skin. Lush perfumes are winners, especially this delicious one

This is one of my favorite scents in the world, although I wouldn't describe it as "strawberry milkshake". It's more of a sage and vanilla, sweet but also a little earthy. I have used the American Cream conditioner for at least ten years and have been hoping for a rerelease of the perfume for ages.

I have wished for American Cream as a perfume for YEARS. It smells exactly like the conditioner, and I look forward to using it every morning! A few spritzes last me throughout the day, I love that it has a matching body wash. American Cream is the perfect balance of sweet and sophisticated.
