This is my favourite LUSH massage bar so far (tried about 4). I like its size, its easy-to-use shape and the smell, which is very hard to describe. It doesn't remind me of anything I've ever smelled and even reading the descriptions from past reviewers doesn't ring any bells for me.
There's definitely some chocolate involved, and the nutts smell is even a bit flowery to me. Or maybe I'm not very good at describing smells.
I love to use this before I go to bed, since the smell is not as strong as in other massage bars and it doesn't seem to be as oily neither so it doesn't stick to my clothes.
Since this is currently unavailable in Europe (I got mine online) I'm trying to make it last as much as I can, but please bring it back, Lush.

I love LUSH, but this massage bar stinks.....literally. At the store it smells like sweet chocolate and cocoa butter but as soon as you apply it to your skin it smells really gross and lingers on the skin. My boyfriend wouldn't even come near me after I applied it. Leaves my skin super soft which I love so I'll just go get another scent.

Smells heavenly, a little difficult to use. Melts instantly on the hands. At first it felt gritty on my skin but after I rubbed it a bit it smoothed out. Wish it had better packaging, even with the tin it hard to use.

This massage bar smells of chocolatey nuts with maybe a hint of vanilla and coconut, and some sandalwood to make it warm and earthy. Sounds nice, doesn't it? Unfortunately it's the smell that's preventing me from giving it full marks - it's far too strong (you'll end up inadvertently scenting the whole room). As a result when you first put it on it's a little overwhelming and too 'busy' to the point where I can pick up on the public toilet smell that one of the other reviewers noted. However, give it a couple of hours and it leaves you smelling warm and sweet. The scent really lasts - I put it on at night and can still smell it in the morning.
As a moisturizer it does a pretty good job. Yes, it is greasy, but it keeps my skin nice and soft. Melts far more easily than Therapy and much better for dry skin. Travel-friendly and can serve as fragrance, moisturizer, and massage oil. Perfect for winter, but I'm not sure how well it would hold up in hot, humid weather.

I'm not too keen on the smell of Coco Butter or Shea Butter, but I'm willing to overlook it for this lovely little bar. It works wonders. My legs are always terribly itchy after shaving and this stuff takes care of it. Plus it soothed my nasty sunburn and made it heal quickly. BUT the number one thing I love about it....this may be TMI, but it is helping to heal my post-pregnancy stretch marks! I never in a million years thought than anything could help, I thought that using coco butter was a wives tale, but I tried it anyway. Amazingly IT IS helping!! And I haven't even used a whole bar yet! Will definitely repurchase :)

Another fantastic Massage bar from LUSH! I originally bought this because I wanted to take a light scented moisturizer with me on vacation to Turks and Caicos. Since I only had a humble carry-on with me, I decided to take a light moisturizing massage bar since there is a 100ml restriction on liquids, gels, and creams.
I chose Nutts because it was love at first smell. It has an aroma of shea butter and nuts with the slightest hint of vanilla, the sweet scent is curbed with a delicate balance of bergamot (my favourite) and sandalwood. The smell is tropical, warm, and wonderful. I especially loved it for my legs for whenever I went out for dinner and wanted to show them off, because it left a nice s sheen on my legs. The following day, it would be fully absorbed and my skin felt smooth thanks to the moisturizing shea butter.
Despite how fabulous the scent is, it is a little strong and perhaps a little too long lasting, so a little goes a long way. The second, and most major flaw is the strange grainy texcture at the face of my massage bar. I suspect it is the Tahini ingredient.
I just bought my second one yesterday!
Happy Shopping : )

at first it smelled like...well...NUTS. But later it was a nice sweeter scent, and more of the coconut came out.

I love this bar! The scent is amazing, and it melts perfectly. The heat from your hands makes it smooth into your skin really nicely. A real treat!

I really like this massage bar. The scent is true to the name, as it does have a sweet, "nutty" scent (with a hint of chocolate). It melts very quickly on contact with skin and can be a little messy because of that. It's moisturizing, but it doesn't absorb quickly enough for me to use it in place of a lotion, so I just use it in smaller areas as opposed to my entire arm or leg, for example. I rubbed it into a sore area on my arm and it was like instant relief, which is a major plus!

I'm a huge fan of shea butter and chocolate (together or separately) so I decided to give this a try after reading some reviews.
Unfortunately, it smells AWFUL on me. It might just be my body chemistry but I was sitting there wondering what on earth the smell reminded me of and then it struck me: public toilets. Like the cleaner or just the air they always use in public toilets. Then my sister sat down and said 'you smell like curry.' So yeah...disappointing.
But on the plus side, this is super moisturizing and a good deal if you have dry skin. My skin was still smooth and had the faintest scent (gross) the next morning.

Wow, If you see my other reviews on LUSH I can't say I love their products... But this is different. At first this has a strong herbal-y peanut smell. But after a while it changes to something warm and almost vanilla scent. I love it... It stays on your body for hours and is very moisturising! I have to use a body oil then moisturize w/ lotion but this works fine alone! Will buy again.

I really like this massage bar. Very creamy, moisturizing and it melts down really smoothly. The smell starts out really REALLY nutty but then it mellows out and just smells comforting (can't explain the scent. Usually the other massage bars start out smelling beautifully then morf into weird godawfull smells but this one leaves you smelling really good for hours and never morfs lol. Again really moisturizing. I store what i don't use in the fridge. Love it. Will continue to purchase =)

This Lush massage bar is a great oil for an awesome MASSAGE. I probably wouldn't use it as an all over moisturizer (as I would with Amazonian), but this one leaves a lovely nutty scent and leaves your skin very soft and supple. And solid means no preservatives!

I've gone through 3 bars of this already. I'm not in love with the scent, smells like a mix of unsweetened peanut and cashew (or some other kind of nut) butters, and a tiny dash of chalk, or maybe clay. I have super dry skin, esp. in winter. I love this bar for it's texture. It glides on sooooo smoothly, it really does melt on contact with the skin. Some of the bars I've used in the past tug unpleasantly on my skin. Though I didn't really notice that until I started using this bar... I'll continue using it as long as it's being made.

Not my favorite Lush massage bar, but not terrible either. This is basically like pure oil once you touch the bar to your skin, be prepared to be waaay greasy. :) Once it finally soaked it (several hours and one slip and fall on the floor later) it left my skin fairly soft and slightly "nutty" scented. Will probably not purchase again because I prefer the soft couer and amazonian bars.

i love all massage bars from lush!! my favorite is mange too.. i stopped by lush today and saw this new nutts bar which smells like peanut butter!! i was immediately attracted to it and bought it along with the tin which fits it perfectly. it is fairly big for a massage bar and was only $8.95! i just tried it and love it!! it melts a lot faster than other massage bars i have tried. when applied, it smells like peanut butter and my skin feel baby butt smooth and soft! nutts is very moisturizing and absorbs into my skin very fast! love it!!!
edit: the sandlewood smells gross on me after it dries. i returned this bar for therapy which is a nice calming lavender/neroli scent!
