Very bright, cheerful, lemony scent! Reminds me of Lemon Head candies! Smelled divine in CP soap combined with bergamot and lime.
I gave May Chang 5 stars, yes it does have a similar smell to lemongrass but the aroma is sweeter. My customers when given a product with may chang or lemongrass, they choose the may chang.
I purchased this fragrance because I wanted essential oils I could incorporate into products for men. This is a pleasant smelling fragrance. However, it smelled very similar to the citrus fragrances I have, especially palmarosa and bergamot. If you have either of these fragrances, this will probably not be necessary.
One of my all time favorite scents by far - i am in love with this oil! Blends so beautifully with citrus, irreplaceable in perfumery and soap making & extremely cost effective.
it reminds me of lemongrass EO. It has a lot of good benefits if you don't mind the smell.
