The formula of this shower gel is decent, but the smell is absurd-- nothing like lavender or rosemary at all. Instead it has a fruity sweet scent with nuances of maraschino cherries. It's distinctly artificial and reminds me in some ways of the cherry-almond fragrance of Jergens lotion. It's not gag inducing but it's no where close to the clean, refreshing smell of lavender. Maybe there was a mistake at the factory... I can't understand how or why this is being marketed as a lavender and rosemary showergel.
