Wonderful! This smells like gingerbread cookies and I like it that way. I don't really get the incense smells in the soap, but I do get the spice. (I have the solid, the body butter, and the spray. The spray is the best, but that's more of a fresh ginger than a cookie-ginger!) I pretty much use this soap from Halloween through Christmas. It might dry your skin out if you're someone who has problems with that though. It's a great-smelling winter soap, but it's definitely more gingerbread-like than the rest of the line.

Mmm! This smells like light ginger/lemon cookies.

Oh I just looooove this scent! The candle is fantastic, too. This and Spanish Amber are my two favorites from the line.

Holy smokes! It smells like you're washing with strong chai! Judging only by scent, this is one of my husband's and my very favorite soaps (out of...well, I'm embarrassed to tell you how many!). It's spicy, spicy, spicy! Pacifica's website claims that it includes "Chinese ginger, sweet orange, Indonesian patchouli, and Haitian vetiver essential oils"---it's mostly spice, with a faint trace of sweetness. It always smells like there's cinnamon in it, too. The scent is nice and strong. Drawbacks? The apricot seeds in the soap are so tiny and sharp that the soap can feel almost like sandpaper, if you're not careful about how hard you push the bar against your hands/body. Yes, those seeds exfoliate, but they can also scrape with almost no effort. Also, it's a glycerine based soap, in case that matters to anyone. We're not usually wild about glycerine soaps, but this is one for which we make an exception. Last, it's not very moisturizing. If you have normal or oily skin and you generally apply a light body lotion afterward...you should be just fine. For people with very sensitive or ultra-dry skin, I'd recommend proceeding with caution. This is one to buy mostly for scent (and the fact that it fits the basic soap criterion of adequately cleansing one's skin).
