Please don't let the scent stories on here keep you from trying this soap. I may have gotten an "aired out" stick, but I find nothing offensive to the tone of what others are saying. All I smell is a faint ivory soap scent. Worst case if I am wrong and a "fresh" stick smells like your ears deep into a urinal, then just let it sit in your garage for a week.
Truly great soap with such a nice light clean smell from my experience.
