I absolutely love the scent of this shower gel! Yum yum marzipan! But not in an overly sweet and candied way. Makes every shower a treat.
As with other korres shower gels it is cleasing and not drying, but not extremely moisturizing either. I feel, however, that is moisturizing enough for a gel.
You dont have to use much product at the time, and I think I used a couple of months to empty the 250 ml bottle. So even though this product might be on the expensive side, it is totally worth it!

An excellent shower gel with a lovely warm scent: I appreciate that the gel does not overpower the user with that super-sweet "almond-y" scent found in so many products (there are often times when I don't feel like bathing in liquid candy); this is the real deal, conjuring up almond extract, complete with that delicious cherry end-note. Good foamy lather; my skin always felt clean-yet-moisturized and as the fragrance does not linger, it will not interfere with post-shower lotion/perfume/etc.
I have found Korres to be a solid line and I appreciate their natural approach to product formulations--if I'm putting something on the biggest organ of my body (and it's likely being absorbed), I appreciate fresh, pronounceable ingredients. Extra points for the expiration date on each bottle (something that is extremely rare in the health/beauty realm). Definitely a pricier line that's available at Sephora, but if you'd rather splurge on other items, head to Marshall's/TJ Maxx (I often find Korres bath products in their beauty sections).

Thanks amygirl3540 for recommending this shower gel. I love almond or vanilla scents for shower gels. I was also looking for a shower gel that will help moisturize my dry skin. I love this gel because it is a creamy shower gel and it lathers up really good. The other plus is that it is not a strong scent and it will not interfere with your body lotion or cologne. This shower gel left my skin feeling soft and clean. This is not a shower gel for people who like a gel with a strong lasting scent. I only tend to smell the shower gel as I am using it in the shower.

OMG! This smells so good!! Korres hit the jackpot with this shower gel. It's so creamy and moisturizing. I can not Rave enough about this, but I wish the scent lasted longer. I first discovered it at Belladonna Spa in New Orleans, and I have been a huge fan of the company ever since.

I love Korres, and of all their shower gels that I have tried, this one is strange in that the scent dissappears a few seconds after pouring from the bottle. For the short time that a fragrance does exist, it is a subtle, sweet almond that seems to take on a cherry note.

I swear I reviewed this one already...apparently not! Well, this is a lovely, lovely shower gel. The fragrance is divine. I LOVE ALMOND!!! I am always in search of the best almond scented items...perfumes, shower gels, lotions, home scents, candles, etc. Korres does a great job with this. I was lucky enough to find it for 50% off at the local BeautyFirst! It lathers nicely and is creamy and soft. It smells great. I would buy again!
EDIT: There are 2 reviews out there for this for the same product. I feel the same, no matter what. LOVE it.

This shower gel is a really well done almond scent, and I'm a sucker for well done almond scents. It's nice enough, but I won't repurchase simply because it doesn't give me anything that I don't already get from my Dr. Bronner's Almond and is WAAAY more expensive. I tried it, it was nice, but I got hypnotized by all the sparkle and lights in Sephora into paying too much for something. ;) If you have dry skin the Korres might be better for you, but otherwise I'd recommend saving a few bucks and getting Dr. Bronner's Almond instead. :)

I CANNOT LIVE WITHOUT THIS SHOWER GEL! It's smells so wonderful and sweet you'll just want to stay in the shower longer and keep using it. It's that addicting. I've always been a big Korres fan and this is my favorite product EVER from them.

I love this shower gel. Bitter Almond and Mint Tea are my favourite Korres Shower gels. The scent is creamy, and reminds ne of marzipan.

I love Korres showergels. bitter almond is sweet but not too sweet. its very creamy and moisturizing for a showergel.it's also very affordable. I love this!

the smell of this shower gel is intoxicating (in a good way) but sadly the scent doesnt last much after you rinse it off. The lather is rich and I only paid $4 for my bottle (found it at a TJ Max)

I like this product because it's not like any US drugstore bath product. Like the other Korres bath gels it's very moisturizing and fun to use in the shower. However the smells are different than most traditional shower gels, and I would say it's an acquired smell. They also are not lasting smells. The bitter is accurate, as this is not as sweet as most almond shower gels. I will buy again, but only for the cheaper price in Greece or if I find it discounted at Marshalls as I once found the guava shower gel.

Korres is my top pick for shower gels, and being an almond fanatic I often reach for this (especially when I know I'm going to wear Lea, Kenzo flower le parfum, Farnesiana, or any other almond fragrances)... If you smell this directly it is pretty strong, but if you allow it to waft to your nostrils on its own accord it's a beautiful, yummy bitter almond. I don't mind that it doesn't linger - I have perfume for that. A pleasurable shower experience from a great quality brand.

This really does smell fabulous-shame it doesn't last at all!However,it has a lovely texture, lathers well and leaves my skin very soft indeed.

This smells gorgeous, but the scent is very volatile and disappears almost immediately from the skin. It certainly isn't 'lingering' as it says on the bottle. Also, the bottle is too rigid, making the gel hard to squeeze out. Very disappointed in this.

Smells clean and yummy. I love sweet scents! I love this over vanilla cinammon and nutmeg tho but equal to cedar. I am a Korres fanatic now!

This scent is really nice, the shower gel lathers really well, and it makes you feel nice surrounded in that scent. Very pleasant, not sweet almond at all which is why I love it.

Korres showergel is nicely lathering and richly scent. The bottles are easy to manuever in the shower (they are plastic flip top- finally someone got it!) The scent is true to its name. The gel is all natual and contains such skin loving ingredients as aloe vera.
