I personally love this scent. I received this in a voxbox as well, and the smell is still in the product. I haven't noticed it going away in the container at all. I use this together with their shea butter lotion. And when using it, I can still smell the shea butter and sandalwood on my skin after a long day and after washing my hands multiple times. I hope this helps, I'm trying out their other scents as well!
