Rated 2 out of 5 by Kaliope Way Too Overpowering
I want to preface this by saying that normally I like the Satsuma scent. I have used several products from the Satsuma line, from hand sanitizer, to the body polish and dry oil. I really like them all. However, I am not a fan of the scent of this body butter. It is just far too overpowering.
One of my daughters really loves the Satsuma scent with other products we've used, so I picked up the body butter for us to try. It not only permeated the entire room, but the scent lingered for DAYS. It was like having a strong air freshener explode in the room.
As far as the efficacy of the body butter, much like other TBS body butters, it's great. It's nice and rich, though more creamy and less thick than some of the others (like the Argan and Coconut). It smooths onto the skin well, and absorbs nicely, and really leaves the skin soft and hydrated, without any lingering greasiness. However, it's just that excessively strong smell that I can't stand. I haven't tried the puree lotion or sorbet, so they might be less overpowering. I'll give them a try at some point, when I'm not as afraid of an overwhelming smell taking over my home.

Rated 1 out of 5 by kjmp First the cream goes on good , absorbs well. but unless you literally want to stink like and orange creamsicle until the next time you shower . At first the smell was ok then was so over powering I couldn't stand the smell any more and had to shower again and scrub it off. I don't recommend this at all

Rated 4 out of 5 by Mila2016 Great product
I'm in love with the Satsuma line, they all smell fresh and wonderful, like sweet orange, but much more delicious. I was skeptical to try the body butter because I tried the shea body butter once and it was too greasy, but this one absorbed nicely and left my skin so smooth. The smell stayed longer and didn't disappear instantly like the Satsuma shower gel that I have. Definitely a stable in my skincare collection from now on.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Mubu Was a big fan in the past
I used Satsuma religiously... I wore in combination with a crisp clean perfume and received compliment after compliment on smelling good. That was until late last summer when the scent seem to change.. I thought that maybe I purchased old product or at least I was hoping that was the deal... unfortunately it was not the situation. Did you change the formula? It was awesome before..now i'm in search of a new fresh scent.
