I have always had with the lavender scent, that I never liked it the smell. I had always smelled the chemical variants and never those of the essential oil. I had smelled it and I found the smell so surprising, when I used it in the shower, it was heavenly nice and floral and so soothing and relaxing. This soap did something to me. My favorite has always been the roses and Ylang ylang soap, but this one is also in my favorites list. Oh Lou Lou has such sophisticated,refined scents that you won't find anywhere else. That's 1 of the many reasons I'm crazy about them. I can still give endless reasons for what makes them so strong and attractive. But I'll leave that for you to discover.
