From the manufacturer: Tranquil and timeless, the resinous notes of vetiver root, patchouli, ginger and orange rinds are reminiscent of the incense that permeates the Buddhist temples throughout the world.
I have used several of the Pacifica line of soaps. They have incredible scents and produce a moisturizing lather. This soap is no exception. It reminds me of orange spice tea. Not a perfume-type smell, but a clean and natural one.
