To be honest, I can’t remember the smell. But it must’ve been pleasant or I wouldn’t have bought it.

The scent didn’t mix well with my shower gel and my own body chemistry.
Well, needless to say, I’m a fan of this store. As you’ll see with some of the other reviews. Still on the hunt for a good all over body butter. I wanted to try this one because I’m a big fan of olive oil. While I liked the creamy, thick texture, I wasn’t a fan of the smell. I’ve been using their Olive Branch Shower Gel and with the combo of the shower gel and my own body chemistry, the scent ended up smelling too medicinal. :/ Yeah. So. Definitely won’t be buying this one again.
Or one of their brick and mortar locations
