This cream had an earthy, almost grassy, smell. The texture is somehow light weight and rich at the same time. Many days, my sensitive skin was fine with it but every once in while it seemed to irritate my skin (redness or sensitivity) or create way too much oiliness. I could not find a pattern that explained why the results and skin reactions weren't more consistent.
I've had my jar for about 10 months and use it on and off.
