- Unique scent (in a great way)
The is probably the most pleasant-smelling cream you could ever wish for - it's like something you'd almost want to eat, yet fresh and floral rather than foodish way. The marigold scent is a welcome change from the usual scents you see ad nauseum in Wholefoods Body. I'd prefer the scent to be a smidgeon less strong, but I guess the upside is that you don't slather too much on and make it go further. Despite that, it smells so good I'm buying it again - other people comment favorably on it when I use it. Performance-wise, in my opinion it utterly out-performs L'Occitane's "best selling" 20% Shea Butter cream, one of which "is sold every three seconds around the world" - I found that stuff lasts 5 minutes and then I have to apply it again; I don't know how it became a best seller other than being in a cool retro packaging (but so is Farmacie!).
- One of my best hand creams of all times.
I absolutely adore the Marigold Calendula Hand Cream. It feels luxurious on my skin. But what I love the most is its smell: it's refreshing and yet calming and very comforting. I almost smell some lemon that is softened by gentle sweetness of Peony. Everything seems so well blended. I live in a very dry climate and this cream feels like an absolute heaven at the end of the day after shower before bedtime. Originally I have purchased it at the Anthropology store. I am so happy to find it on the web. I am curious to explore perfumes from this brand. So far I have only tried this hand cream. Wonderful job dear Soap and Paper Factory!
