I have to admit, when I first opened the bottle I found it smelled offensively like burnt rubber, and immediately cursed the inaccuracy of the raving reviews. Then...the morning after when I opened it again to check, not only did the offensive smell go away (perhaps because of the packaging? idk) but it was replaced by the most pleasant warm fragrance I've ever smelled - like a very sharp vanilla (I've never smelled an actual calendula so forgive the vague description). And so I finally used the lotion and was even more pleasantly surprised at how great the texture was. It's an opaque, stiff gel-like texture that absorbs so easily into my skin. I badly needed a moisturizing lotion to heal my ugly skin and I got one. It improved my skin texture in time, never made me feel sticky like most 'moisturizing' lotions. Overall, I'm very happy with this product. My roommate loved the scent so much that the scent alone (whenever I prep in mornings before work) could be her alarm clock.
