I always think a lemon- or orange-scented hand or bath soap (call me fussy but I mean lemon, not lemon verbena) would seem nice. I finally found one (Get Real) @ Whole Foods, but it costs, I just pay whatever but I think something like $3.99 for 1 bar; otherwise the only places that have them is like the Vermont Country Store 'log. How the heck come mainstream supermarket hand/body soaps (like Dial or Zest that you can get in a pack of 3 or 6 or 8) are never lemon- or orange-scented, they've always got some meaningless scent-name like "Spring Rain" or "Island Breeze"? This site must be visited by a lot of domestic scientists who should know? :?:

have you searched online? I just did a search and came up with a Dial soap that is citrus, 8 bars for 6.99

Also, you can try making soap yourself. From what I understand, it isn't that hard and you'd be able to mix your own scents.

I just bought some discontinued citrus-y scents at Bath & Body Works. I hate that they always discontinue my fave scents---all which happen to be citrus scents!!!!

Bath and Bodyworks has their liquid pump handsoaps on sale again @ 3 for $10, the Kitchen Lemon is pretty good. I don't like anything Lemon Verbena either, yuck.

I know Dial has a body wash that is mandarin/grapefruit or something citrusy like that, runs anywhere fron $5-6 a bottle.

I too was going to suggest Bath & Body...love their soaps & lotions! And sometimes KayLiny...if a scent is discontinued you can sometimes find it online. There's a couple of lotions that I like and about the only time the store has it is when they have their $4 or $5 sale. But I found it online...of course, not sure how long they will have it, lol.

B&B has a scent I love, coconut lime verbena. I like pearberry too. Eventually I would like to get into making my own soaps and lotions.

I have a bar of Get Real lemon soap and love it. It lasts a really long time, and I love that it's all natural :) I'm another fan of citrus scents.
