The soap is nice, lightly scented. I agree with the other reviewer that a man could use this. The scent isn't too feminine. My only complaint is that I paid $1 extra for the bowl assuming that I could create a lather in the bowl, but it's too small for that. As far as I can tell, the bowl serves no purpose. I put the soap in a plastic food storage container. I can lather and store the soap in that.
