This does not smell like real coconut, and I don't smell any almond at all. It is, however, heavy-duty and very abrasive! It is also invigorating, and warms on the skin. I use this all over my body, except my face. It leaves my skin polished and smooth - all rough spots and areas gone! Moisturizes without being excessively oily, and makes my skin extremely soft. I follow-up with Bodycology Coconut Almond body butter.
