This is a thick shower gel with large scrub particles in it, which I think are probably coarsely-ground nut shells. Although it is supposed to smell of fig, I wouldn't guess if I hadn't read the label. It is more like a faint melon with earthy, cocoa-like undertones - very strange indeed and not particularly pleasant. It is not very effective as a scrub, since the particles are too large and scratchy to exfoliate. At least the packaging, a fat clear plastic squeezy tube that stands on its end, is practical.
