I got a mini tub of this product as part of a gift set--were it not for that, I would have never given it a chance! I once bought a lemon-scented body butter from Winners (I don't remember the brand name), and when the Body Shop released their Sweet Lemon line, I imagined their body butter to smell much like the one I had gotten before: soft and sweet. Not the case: the Body Shop's version is strong with a sort of "grassy" note to it (I'm not sure how to explain it exactly...but it smells more like an actual lemon whereas the body butter from Winners smelled more like a lemon-flavoured dessert). I put it down and vowed never to go back to it.
Then someone gave a Sweet Lemon gift set to my mom. She's very no-frills about her bath and body products, though, so she handed the set to me, and I decided to give the products a whirl. After smelling the body butter a few times, it happened to grow on me. I never thought that it smelled like cleaning products, and the reason it doesn't smell like Mr. Clean (at least to me) is the "grassy" note which I've come to appreciate. The texture is quite light, making it suitable for the summer, and the smell, while initially pungent, dies down quickly to nothing (which is why I removed a star). However, I see this product as a keeper, and once I run out, I'm sure to buy it in the full size!
