In my quest to keep my skin feeling as great in winter as it feels in summer, I have been experimenting with skin oils. I intended to use this only for body. The other oils I have tried are the Nuxe, one from Clarins and one intended for babies from Burt's Bees. I hate the strong honey odor the Nuxe gives off and the Clarins smells extremely medicinal. The Burt's Bees smells like lemon. I have no idea why anyone would want one's baby to smell like a lemon or even would want their baby to give off any strong fragrance. Although I prefer my body moisturzer unscented to avoid conflict with my fragrance, this does have a pleasant scent, very similar to the perfume from Serge Luten called Douce Amere, imo.
But, this oil is quite expensive for the amount I have to use to cover my whole body, it takes longer to apply than a moisture lotion and it is not as moisturizing as my current favorite from Alba Botanica. I'll use it up, but I am not likely to repurchase.

I'm partial to oils for my face, body and hair, so of course, I bought this. It gives off a very luxurious, summer in the south of France vibe. Sadly, I'm not thrilled. I was really excited at first because it is packaged beautifully in a bronzed glass bottle with a spray top and wooden cap and has a bunch of grapes indented into the back, but no. As a dry oil, it works decently although I wish it were more moisturizing. At the end of the day, what ruined it for me was the smell. It smells nice at first, but after awhile, the scent seems to be very synthetic and nutty. It's also pretty expensive for the full sized bottle and I prefer the NUXE Huile Prodigieuse or any Clarins Body Treatment Oil. If you're thinking of getting this, make sure to test it out first and sniff periodically.

Luxurious, moisturizing, and multi purpose. I think it beats regular old body oils any day. Sorry, but I have dry skin and even I cannot stand most heavy and thick body oils (like olive oil). I cannot tolerate the feeling of those, but this absorbs and has that lovely scent.

Great oil. Texture is just perfect, absorbs quickly and does not stick. I am not a big fan of the smell though: yes it does have a luxurious aspect to it, but I find it a bit too old. Packaging is great (I tried the small 15 ml bottle), sprays evenly. I might buy again, but I prefer the smell of the Nuxe products.

Lovely. I confess I mainly bought this - and Nuxe's Huile Prodigieuse - because of rave reviews about the scents. For skin, I don't find dry oils have any more benefits than a good moisturiser, and they make my hair go limp. In terms of scent though, both the the Nuxe and Caudalie are lovely. The Nuxe has an outdoorsy, seaside feel to it so I find it enervating, whereas the Caudalie is more relaxing, especially after an evening bath. I have both and really, I just find them fun to have as part of a pampering ritual. (Better for you than alcohol and chocolate!) I found the Caudalie is better value for money than Nuxe.

After reading the rave reviews, I thought I would give this a try and ordered the $9 bottle from Sephora. I was SO disappointed when I used it the first time - there was no, repeat no smell at all and the smell was one of the things I was most anxious to experience. It did not smell "divine" rather it more or less smelled like (old) Mazola oil. I called Sephora immediately and they were superb; are sending a new bottle out. I will update my review then. I will say that it is terrific oil that sinks into skin and leaves no residue whatsoever; this is what I was looking for since I live in dry, no humidity Arizona. I was looking for "divine" and got "meh" instead...but we'll see what the new bottle will be like.

Gorgeous smelling body oil and love the packaging and spray top. I would prefer it to be a bit more moisturising as I have to use quite a lot to moisturise properly which means it find out fast making it an expensive purchase.

hmm maybe i am disappointed because i really expected more from it. let's take it step by step
1. smell. not that pleasant. too woody in my opinion. and i'm a sucker for great smells
2. texture. it's a dry oil. i guess it's a good choice for those who need to use oil on their body with the grease. personally i don't mind
3. on the face skin? maybe yes, maybe not. i think there are better things out there, depending on your objective. it doesn't have any benefit i can pin down. except the face doesn't feel oily when you wake jup. i'll give you that
4. on the body? in my experince nothing beats pure olive oil. skin feels super soft and moisturized, and this products doesn't do a job as good as the olive oil
i will definitely finish this bottle but i probably won't rebuy because it fails to deliver something that will justify rebuying it. it is not cheap but this is not the point here. i'm having a difficult time finding a good reason to repeat the purchase

OMG, this is totally a HG product. I like dry oils in general for moisturizing, especially when they come in spray form like this does. It moisturizes skin without being heavy or greasy. It also smells absolutely amazing. I love that this has so many natural ingredients, too. It is super expensive, but I'm an amateur soap maker and I know that ingredients like grape seed oil and shea butter are high quality in themselves. I love, love, love this stuff and will definitely re-buy.

I really love this stuff...I don't put it on my body or hair - every night I put it on my face. It never breaks me out, moisturizes me like crazy and my skin looks and feels lovely in the morning. Never one break out with this. I wish it was not so expensive but the moisturizing effects of oil can't be beat and my face thanks me for it each time. Love love love!
