When I opened it, I noticed a slight tropical smell. I couldn't quite tell if it was coconut or cocoa butter. Either way, it was light and pleasant.
I've used this 3-4 times on my legs and underarms and I can say it works quite well. I like that I don't have to worry about having yet another product, shaving cream, in the shower. The only downfall I have is that the moisture bars seem to disappear quickly. Mine is on the verge of breaking off and I've not even used it that much.
While I like this product, I prefer the Venus Embrace and Venus Breeze over this one.
Now for some product info:
