Counter-terrorism officers have traced the Afghan bath bomb manufacture back to high street, hand-made 'smellies' peddler LUSH.
The bath bombs, identified by their codenames 'Fizzbanger' and 'Dragon's Egg' show a marked change in the bombers' tactics away from conventional, odourless explosives.
A spokesperson said "We have been concerned about the Dragon's Egg device in particular for a while now after receiving information indicating it claimed to produce a 'Cracking sherbet-scented fireball', obviously something that should not fall into the wrong hands."
Specially trained sniffer dogs lead the team to a high street store where they were overpowered by the smell and had to withdraw. Officer's wearing respirators subsequently entered the building and were staggered to see the bombs on sale to the general public for as little as 3 pounds each.
