I don't think this product is still available, but I remember I had it years ago when I was a child. I remember I loved it, and I really treasured it lol, I only used it maybe once a week because I was scared it would run out too quick. So I always used it after a shower or bath, and it always smelled very refreshing. The names "oceanus" is very fitting for the product :) it does remind me of the ocean, the water, the beach life... very fresh and clean smell.
Although the product isn't available anymore, I wouldn't buy it anymore. I like more natural and soft smelling creams/lotions nowadays.

I love Oceanus It smells like green fresh sharp soap. I can still smell the scent even after a few hours of wearing it. The lotion is pretty moisturizing as well. The scent adds cheer to the winter

It seems this has been discontinued, but I still have a small bottle... because I don't like it enough to use it up. The smell is just... I can't even describe it, but it ain't pleasant. Boring packaging as well.

I love The Body Shop products and I used to think that Oceanus is the perfect scent for me :) This particular body lotion is described on its own website "Moisturising body lotion that leaves the skin smooth, supple and subtly scented with the fresh, aquatic unisex Oceanus fragrance." :) While it did partially remind me of the sea, I think that some notes do not smell exactly right, unlike other readers :) Maybe I got an old or bad tube :) Also, while this smell nice in the bottle, when I slather it all over myself after my shower, I realized that it does not smell that great anymore, maybe this is one fragrance that smells appealing when used sparingly :) It is a very pretty blue in the bottle though, and I just love looking at this sometimes :) For a body lotion, it does its job well and leaves my body well moisturised :) I love it that it does not leave a sticky after-feeling :) Being located in sunny Singapore where it is humid here, we cannot use oily lotions but this is just right :) I will not repurchase this, but will try out other scents in The Body Shop :)

I loved the smell, but this stuff did nothing for my skin. It was irritating and drying. I began to wonder if it was made of sea water alone!

I LOVE this stuff soo much!! The second I opened the bottle the entire area around me smelled so heavenly!:)It's a nice combination of water lilies and berries and has a nice marine, oceany fragrance that has been my fave for years. Good moisturizing lotion. Almost every girl in my house uses it which there are 3!! Everyone I know who uses it loves it, and if I ever get the chance, I would definatly buy it again.

I love this scent- its a clean marine smell- perfect for a man or a woman. The lotion is very nice too- prefect texture, not too light or too rich. This lotion is awesome year round.
