Josie Maran Vanilla Fig - not pleasant

I just received the Vanilla Fig. Does anyone else think that is not a pleasing scent?

 

Sending it back. Hate to spend $70.00 with S/H and not like it.  Don't feel like trying another scent.

Thanks for the heads up on that scent. I never tried it, but I do not like her lavender scent; that's for sure. I won't buy it again.

I do like peppermint, mango and a citrus scent...citrus spa maybe?

I recently tried these, as I am usually an unscented fan.

I bought a 3 pack of her body butters years ago. I thought they all smelled like chamicals so back they went.

 

Haven't bought anything in her line since.

I don't care for any of her scents either so I just stick with the unscented

@ImABoor   My preference in scents is no scents!   I realize lots of products still have scents, but I know I gave up lots of shampoos because I dislike their scent, I do not order the Philosophy scented shower gels, and I order the Josie products I like scent-free.

I like the Vanilla Fig, it is richer and warmer for fall. It is not a girly floral for certain, but It isn't overwhelming and does dissipate after a time.

I did not care for the vanilla fig either.  I usually buy Vanilla Bean or if that is not available, the unscented.  I can also use some of her citrus scents.

I buy unscented body butter. It never disappoints, doesnt clash with anything, nothing tp "try".
