I'm not your average human, I am what's considered a "Sensitive" my skin will react to anything artificial, and chemical in a negative way. This lotion is the most loving lotion I have tried for my skin, it is smooth and absorbs well. A small amount goes a long way. The smell is light and clean- however I do not smoke, I do not use perfumes and strong odors in my home. So my nose smells it pure- it is a fresh smell. There are many inaccurate or exaggerated reviews on the smell alone here I noticed. My best suggestion is to give it a try for yourself, and if you are a sensitive like me you just might appreciate this lotion. God's love to you!
