I used this when I was staying at a friend's house. I was attracted to the scent initially. I like it, but only think it works as a light moisturizer, unlike most body butters. It does feel slightly tacky upon application, but after about 15 minutes my skin feels just normal and soft, and is softly scented like honey. I actually just plan on using it as a fragrance balm when I don't feel like wearing perfume. In my opinion, it is not as heavily scented as Sephora's body butters, or something you might find at Victoria's Secret or Bath and Body Works. If I put my nose up to my skin, I can still smell it hours later though.

The reason I was actually compelled to purchase my own tub of this body butter is because I received numerous, unsolicited compliments on how good I smelled. My friend who I borrowed it from didn't even recognize the scent, she said it smelled much better and different on me than her. I think it's a bit pricey at ~$13 a tub, but my favorite Sephora body butter costs $16, so.....

EDIT: The tub I received was the "newer" formulation apparently? It's much more whipped; my friend's tub was very dense, like butter from the fridge. It smells and moisturizes the same, though.
