Upon smelling the peppermint body scrub it reminded me of toothpaste. Applying the Main Goetz opened my senses. My skin felt squeaky clean. After showering, the scent was very invigorating. When you are out of shower, dressed, and ready to go, the minty scent lingers and is not over powering. It felt minty clean! The bottle is huge and should last a while. On a side note, I rubbed my daughters feet with the Malin Goetz peppermint body scrub and let her soak her feet in the tub. This Peppermint body scrub alleviated some of her asthma issues. Great job!
