I was ignorant about this product.

I actually had no idea what Pine Tar Soap was. I had no idea that it stinks terribly. I should have researched it first. Anyway, smells so bad, I didn't use it. But, hey, some people might like the way it smells.

Smells like a camp fire. Helps me with dandruff and patchy dry skin. By far my personal favorite soap.

Campfire Smell

I bought this for my husband and neither of us thought we would like it when it arrived because it smelled so strongly of campfire. I'm not sure what I expected pine tar to smell like, but I didn't expect it to smell like that. The smell was less strong once he used it in the shower, and now it is a little more neutral--but it was very strong on opening the box.

Good soap for a guy. My wife doesn't like it. It smells masculine, for sure. It cleans well, in my opinion, and I like the smell. And the ingredients were pretty clean, at least they were the last time I bought it.

This bar smells manly! It smells like smoked wood. My husband loves it. It has helped clear up some of his skin that used to break out.

Definitely smells like a campfire when you open it. I wasn’t sure if we would like this at first because of the initial smell but its actually quite nice. You don’t smell like campfire after using it.
