And personally I like the Tea Tree smell, I was actually introduce to Tea Tree when I was doing my facial on the cooling mask that has Tea Tree in it. After that I fell in love with the scent. Everybody have different preference and when you find the right scent it actually do calms you down and feel relax. What is your scent?
