I am a fan of Bath and Body works products and was surprised that this scent was not like the others. It is very strong and leaves a weird smell after its has been applied. I can usually apply the lotion and then follow up with the body spray and the scent lasts throughout the day. This scent is totally different. It goes on smelling very strong, but not terrible, but within am hour the smell is totally different and it is not a pleasant scent. I thought that maybe I had a bad bottle so I returned it and got a different one. The results were the exact same so I believe it really is the scent of this product that is not right. Scent The scent is stronger than most of the Bath and Body works lotions I have tried in the past. Absorption This lotion absorbs very well into my skin and keeps my skin feeling soft and smooth. Effectiveness It works to keep my skin moisturized but doesn't work well to keep me smelling good.
