I bought this for my wife to replace some I had purchased earlier that she didn't care for. This was my first experience of having a product smell different on a person than it does in the bottle. When I first purchased the Japanese Cherry Blossom Shower Gel, I myself did not like the way it smelled. I found it to be a lot different once it was applied as was the product I was replacing. Once she had used the Japanese Cherry Blossom Shower Gel I realized different people have different chemistries changing the outcome of many fragrances. The Japanese Cherry Blossom Shower Gel happens to be one of the better ones for my wife. I would recommend the Japanese Cherry Blossom Shower Gel from the Bath and Bodyworks Pleasures Collection. The product has a light long lasting aroma that is almost un-noticable unless your close. I like the fragrance it has as does my wife. I will continue to buy this product / fragrance. The pricing is slightly higher than comparable products in department stores but I do believe it is worth the extra cost. I guess it is true you get what you pay for. I would however recommend if you are buying for someone else try to get some idea of what fragrance they are most comfortable with. The Bath and Bodyworks Pleasures Collection come in many fragrances. I can only assume that the other fragrances are of the same quality as the Japanese Cherry Blossom Shower Gel product proved to be. This is a nice product for a reasonable price.
