This soap smells so wonderful. I chose it because other reviewers said it was masculine and strange, and those are the scents I certainly go for. It is non-drying, a little goes a long way, the suds are creamy and rinse easily, and the smell is beautiful. People compliment the smell of the house if I have just showered with it recently! As far as masculine goes, it is a little different, but I had hubby try it on a day he ran out of his body soap, and he smelled like a powdery girl, ha! So, while it isn't the typical vanilla, lavender, fruity smells most feminine products aim for, it is definitely female, edgy, and confident.
