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.

I really enjoy the soap. But I have to say it’s smells like a camp fire not pine tar.

Smells great and has helped my husband's dandruff. He has had dandruff for years and the shampoo that helped was no longer made so we have tried many since that did not work. One week into using this soap he was less itchy and had less flakes. Will buy again!

Horrible smell

Posted   by Chelsea from Kansas City, Missouri
Reviews really don't seem accurate here...this soap literally smells like an old crusty bonfire and is unusable.
