I absolutely love the smell of this handsoap. I didn't like the smell that much at first, but it grew on me. I've never found another verbena product, even other verbena products from L'Occitane, that smells this good. To me it smells like lemon candy. It makes your hands very soft after each use, and it leaves a wonderful, long lasting smell. My husband even commented on how much he likes the smell of this hand soap, and he never notices such things.
