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.

Picky about my soap!
I love the smell of Patchouli and this did not disappoint. Leaves my skin soft and moisturized. None drying.

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 :)

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.

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.

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!!

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.

If you like Patchouli you'll love this!
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?

Love This 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.

The smell is heavenly, and it leaves your skin feeling hydrated- but not slippery. I just love it!

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.

This soap has made my skin feel so much softer since I've been using it! Would highly recommend it! Plus, it smells good too!
