The soap is very fragrant and lathers really well. It lasts a long time. The smell is very fruity and lingers on my skin. I think its a notch above regular drugstore soap, but if you really want a luxurious soap you need to go with something like Pre de Provence, along that same price range.
I love this soap! It smells just like the long-discontinued Papaya shampoo from St. Ives. I can buy a giant bar at my local TJ Maxx for $4.
