I don't know how to descried this scent because I've never smelled anything like it before. I will say that the fragrance last a good while after you have shaved, so, you really don't need an aftershave with these soaps IMO. I will say that after I shaved this morning that the shave was so smooth that my face felt like I don't shave at all. I used my RazoRock DE. I forgot what blade I have in it, but I think it's been in razor going 1-2 weeks.
