When you first spray it, it does smell like alcohol for a few seconds, then it’s a really fresh floral pear scent. It is very soft, more of a skin scent. About an hour later, it smells like a fresh fruity shampoo. Then it smells like soap after a while, but it’s very faint. It’s like a out of the shower type scent. This is nice for the really hot days, since it is a refreshing clean scent.
