I initially received this product as a birthday gift and I have been using this product ever since that time. It is by far the best in this line of products from Bath and Body Works. I am in awe of this product because not only does it smell amazing, but is has a very strong stress relief component that actually does work to calm you. Scent Given that fact that Sandalwood is probably my favorite fragrance in the world, I initially doubted that I would like the pairing of these two fragrances. Surprise, surprise they work fabulous together. There is a certain richness about the two scents together that make them work well. Absorption I have noticed a slight greasiness when using this product. So I advise to use is sparingly. It is another one of those products where a little going a very long way. Effectiveness I have noticed it does have a calming effect to it. I try to use it everyday that I am feeling somewhat stressed out. This has fast become a favorite product of mine.
