This is quite pretty. First and foremost, it's a great oil (I use it as an after-shower moisturizer) - my skin drinks it in, and it doesn't irritate my eczema, which is good because half the reason I bought it was to help treat my poor sensitive skin. I do get the coconutty vibe mentioned above, but to me it smells more like good old-fashioned Australian lemon slice - lemon icing over a base of crushed Nice biscuits, butter and dessicated coconut. The apple in it is probably the most prominant note, and it's a tart, almost waxy apple. It's a scented body oil, not a perfume oil, so the scent it pretty subtle but at the same time pervasive. I would personally have preferred something a little more sweet and a little less plasticy, but I expect that's my skin chemistry reacting with the apple. It's a great quality oil, and while the scent is not what I'd use every day I expect I'll be using this one quite often as a moisturizer.
