The scent is what hits you first. Pine then peppermint, reminders of the holiday season. This lotion is not overly thick but thick enough to be a good quality hand lotion. It goes on silky smooth and leaves a silky feel to your skin. This is great as I constantly am washing something, my hands, the car, the dishes whichs keeps my hands dry. Plus, it is hard to find a good lotion that is not greasy, but thick enough for dry hands. Glad it is all natural with nothing I would not put on my skin in the ingredients. Once this bottle is empty I will be trying the other scents. Thank You!
