Rated 5 out of 5 by TinWoodsman My Favorite Soap
I've used this soap for years. Many soaps aggravate my allergies, but this one doesn't. The scent is pleasant, natural, and not overpowering. It also doesn't dry out my skin the way that some other soaps do. It would be nice if the bars were a bit bigger, as my partner and I will easily use up a bar a week. I usually order a dozen or more bars at a time. One nice thing is that the indentions in the side let you stick the remainder of the last bar to a new bar so that you don't have to waste time lathering with just a sliver of soap or waste money by throwing it away.

I have always liked patchouli scent. These bars have just enough. Some people said the bars were small but the bars I received were not. I will reorder more .

I purchased this soap because I had not seen patchouli fragrance before and I like it. The soap is a soft lavender in color and keeps your skin soft. I would purchase again and it is a good value.

This makes the most soothing bath along with a little lavender oil. I would recommend this product to anyone. A bath taken with this right before bedtime makes a very restful sleep.

Rated 2 out of 5 by bettyslocombe Nasty Smelling Soap
I purchased this because I like the smell of patchouli and thought it might evoke memories of the 70's. Wrong. It stinks. As another reviewer stated, the box smelled nice, but that was as far as it went. The soap itself did not smell like patchouli at all and actually had a nasty smell. It was quite a diappointment after the nice scent of the box left me excited to try the new soap. Strangely, they must put scent on the box because the soap is wrapped in cellophane and the scent does not seem to escape this wrapping. I tried the soap thinking the negative comments about the scent were probably made by people who are too picky, but I now see they were right and wish I had listened.

Rated 4 out of 5 by FleshBug Like above, not enough patchouli aroma!
As the reviewers above stated, the soap isn't very strong smelling. Straight out of the box, it smelled great, very strong patchouli aroma, but after using it in the shower, the smell isn't very strong.
Maybe the cardboard box was patchouli scented :)

Rated 3 out of 5 by CraigPDX ok soap
Let me preface that is is a review by a middle aged single male.
Personally I like the smell of Patchouli oil and when i saw this product I immediately purchased it to try it out. I was sadly disappointed. While there is nothing wrong with the overall product in general, it smelled like something my grandma would use. It had a flowery smell, it smelled nothing like Patchouli oil at all.
I tried to not be too judgemental on the product, overall there is nothing wrong with it but I was underwhelmed and I think the name of the soap should be changed.

Rated 3 out of 5 by ricoor Not For True Patchouli Lovers
Mind you, this is actually a well-made bar of soap - individually wrapped, nicely packaged, lathers well, not harsh, etc. That said, for someone who *really* loves the scent of Patchouli, this was just not "Patchouli-enough" for my olfactory sense. The scent is quite pleasant, but far from that of a nicely-aged Patchouli essential oil. Which as I say, might be just the thing for those of you who don't *really* love the aroma of Patchouli.

Rated 5 out of 5 by HarmonynPeace Patchouli and all Organic!!!
I have loved the scent of Patchouli ever since the late 60s, early 70s. This is a REALLY good soap. No chemicals, organic ingredients and that wonderful earthy, sensuous & sexy smell of Patchouli!!! I never, ever, EVER buy the over-advertised, chemically loaded bars of soaps that your grocery and drug store shelves are loaded down with, that are pure junk to put on your body. Your body absorbs into your system, every single thing that you apply to it, including soaps!! This soap lathers really well and ohhhh that smell!!!!! Mmmmmm....!!! I keep it on the sink to use as a hand-soap!!

Rated 3 out of 5 by MDfromFW Odd shaped bar and musty scent
We are trying various soaps from Swanson. I should have researched what patchouli was before purchasing this. Patchouli is suppose to have a heavy and strong scent . I can barely smell this soap. My wife says it has a strong scent that she does not care for.
The ingredient all look natural. Coconut oil is the first ingredient, which is always good. This is real soap, not a chemical bar. We have soft water, so it lathers fairly well. Hard water will not be as good.
I don't like the shape of the bar. It is oval and quite wide. It gets very slippery when wet, making it hard to hold on to.
It seems a bit pricey, especially since we don't like the scent or the shape. We do not recommend this soap.

This soap is the best! Love the smell and lathers well. My teenage sons say I smell good! The perfect soap to bathe with when turning in for the night.

I would recommend it if it listed the ingredients and they were organic. I found no such list on the product. What all is in the soap?

I ordered more bars on my last order. When I had tried it out the first time I loved it. So I knew to order more. The soap smells great and I will always try to keep the soap on hand. May even double my order in the future.

This soap lathers well, smells absolutely fantastic and leaves your skin very soft. I have sensitive skin and have a terrible time with many soaps; even all natural ones; not this one though. And the price is great; it is double the price in the local health food stores.
