When I received the sample size I thought I wouldn't have many uses as the container is small. I ended up having 5 uses. The first few times I used it I used a very light layer and the results were so so. The last time I used it I loaded it on heavy (feels great smoothing it on thick) and only left on for 10 min but the result was amazing. Refined pores, even, luminous skin, as beautiful as my skin ever looks. Next morning my skin still looks great. I am impressed and will make this mine one day. The scent is mostly ylang ylang which to me smells kind of medicinal like pepto bismol. I can smell enough of the other florals that it doesn't overwhelm me but it's not my absolute favorite. The act of rinsing in the shower with the scents blooming again, and feeling your skin soften as you rinse is wonderful. I will also add that I had no tingling which can happen to me with honey masks. In short, an almost flawless experience from application, duration, and removal, so lovely, and if you like ylang ylang you will likely love it.
