The scent of this bar is from pure essential oils of an Italian citrus fruit, Bergamot, and from the United States Southwest Region's White Grapefruit. It is natural, and not made from an itchy synthetic fragrance oil. It smells a little bit like soft white would smell, if white had any scent, or maybe like Casper, the friendly ghost. It is really fresh and clean. The extra emollients making up the bar leave their trace on the skin to protect it from damaging and tanning sun rays. If you want your skin to remain gothic-white, and nearly translucent as a ghost's, then make this your regular shower soap.
