The Best Smelling Natural Body Care Products: Finding Our Signature Scent

We always wanted our natural body care products to have the best smelling scent, a smell that people would look forward to every day. A smell that one could never get tired of, but simply indulge in the simple moment when one comes across it. When we first started looking into the options for the best smells for our body care products, we visited our local markets in hopes to find something we felt connected to. Yet, everywhere we went, it seemed that the smells were all so strong, overwhelming, taking away from the experience of the natural product itself.

"In an ideal world, a signature scent serves as a personal scent memory to cherished friends and loved ones." Kathleen Hou-The cut


We wanted something unique, to fit into anyone’s daily routine.

This is where we developed our idea for the scents, basing it off of the top, base, and underlying notes. By giving this layering effect to our scents, our users can go through multiple emotions when applying the product to their skin.

Are you ever tired of the smell of fresh laundry coming out of the drying machine? This type of smell is something everyone is familiar with. The calm and clean refreshing scent of all those dirty clothes from throughout the week being transformed into new wearable pieces. That initial smell that hits you, wakes up your senses, makes you feel new and excited, while when putting on these clean clothes, there is still that underlying tone of freshness that you feel comfortable embracing.

This is where our scents come into play. With our best smelling Camel Milk Body Butter, our top layer gives off a fresh, crisp fruity - floral fragrance. Once you allow the product to sink into the skin, it leaves behind earthy, woody tones. Our body butter has a much stronger “fragrance” than our other products, and its signature scent is longer lasting and can even replace a perfume for many. Our Camel Milk Face & Body Soap smell is the same as our Camel Milk Body Butter. Our Camel Milk Body Lotion gives off a much lighter, fruity creamy scent, with the top layers smelling fruity with a litchi note, developing into a tender creamy sweet scent coming through once settled into the skin. The “fragrance” is a perfect everyday scent that is not too overwhelming or as noticeable as our body butter, ideal for those who may be more sensitive to stronger scents. Our Camel Milk Hand Cream has a very similar scent to that of the body lotion. OurCamel Milk Foot Cream has a very invigorating scent, with the tea tree oil being one of the more prominent notes you can smell, and the smell settling into the feet very lightly. The oils we use include grapefruit, sweet almond, jojoba seed oil, and multiple other natural oils. When combined, the initial scent of our creams is one to enlighten the senses, while after settling in, you will feel refreshed and comforted. The smell in our body care products does not overpower the beauty in the simplicity of the natural ingredients we use. Instead, it combines the natural essence with the freshness of the time of use, to give our users the most luxurious and calming experience that they can take part in every day.
