Definitely NOT what I expected! Normally I wouldn't splurge on luxury body wash since suds of soap in a shower are on the body under 3 seconds and immediately rinse away but this was actually worth it. First, a little goes a very long way so a drop is all you need for a good amount of highly fragrant, rich and deeply cleansing suds that leave the good scent behind. One bottle lasts me months so it's highly concentrated. It leaves me clean, soft and scented unlike other washes do. I can use it in the bath, shower and even at the gym on my hair. While I get acclimated to the scent during the day, the fragrance is still in the bathroom and on my clothing (A VERY GOOD THING) plus it's definitely NOT OVERPOWERING. My husband hates perfume in general but loves this on me. When I pair it with the matching body cream, the scent is even stronger and he's even happier. It smells like I crawled into a designer purse, it's just really that good.
