I'm a soapmaker, and I've made many batches of 100% olive oil soap. This soap is far, far better. It has a very rich lather, unlike most olive oil soaps. The unscented version, which is what I bought, does have a very soapy scent. If this isn't what you want, I'd suggest buying the scented.
When I visited France years ago, I really liked the Marseille soap. On returning, I found a source, and got it for several years, until the source stopped carrying it. That soap was outstanding. THIS soap, on the other hand, is not even close! The soap provides very little lather; its square shape makes it difficult to use; it is just not what it should be. Buyer beware! "Marseille Soap" is a generic term, but all soap with the name is not the same! NOT recommended!
I bought this soap to clean oil paint of brushes. Works fine, gentler than brush cleaners. Keeps fine brush hair intact if used along with conditioner. Arrived earlier than expected. Happy with the purchase
