The smell of lemon is associated with clean. Lavender has that property also to some extent, but with the way L’Occitane Shea Butter Extra Gentle Soap cleans, Verbena makes my skin feel sterilized. This is the same gentle, well-cleaning soap that I’ve been raving about, its core formula is unchanged. For simplicity’s sake, I will summarize the different scents below.
Milk: shea butter, musky scent; unisex (leaning a bit towards feminine); doesn’t change the scent of women’s fragrance in my experience.
Lavender: a light, lavender scent; masculine; accentuates the smoky quality within some women’s perfumes.
Verbena: lemon scent, for a superior feeling of clean; especially great for hot days; feminine; accentuates citrus and lighter notes in women’s fragrances.
My personal preference is for Milk – it makes me feel at home in my skin. Verbena will be indispensable should the summer be very hot.
