Per some of the EO websites, there are two main fragrances of Geranium oil, depending on where it is harvested. The place of origin of this oil, Egypt, suggests it will be a "greener" scent, while the other places of origin like China can produce more "floral" varieties (Aura Cacia' brand). The "floral" kinds cost more. I settled on this "greener" version and I'm happy with it. Imagine that you were smelling your garden geraniums at the same time as your husband was cutting the grass....you would get both scents. That is what this geranium smells like to me.

smell is like an "old women" parfume :) but if you will not use more than 1 drop on approx. 30 ml its ok. Maybe I just don`t know how to use it.

Lo uso combinado en un difusor especial para aceites esenciales con aceite de citronela que es para ahuyentar los mosquitos, leí que mezclandolo con aceite de geranio era más tolerante para los bebés de la casa y por eso lo compre, pero sinceramente no volvería a comprarlo, huele fatal (al menos a mi me lo parece) ||| Si consideras útil esta información™ valorala, puedes entrar en mi página y ver otras reviews |||

It smells ok, but NOW essential oils have always been exception. I am not sure if it is this batch or not, ut there seems to be an undertone that clashes with the geranium scent I would expect.

Despite the reviews, I personally find the aroma of Now Foods Geranium is very close to Aura Cacia Geranium. Smells nice but aroma is milder and short-lived. It's OK for everyday use like DIY perfume. The price and quality certainly need improvement.

The least impressive of all the Geranium oils I've ever tried. Very mildly floral with a greenish tone. Not horrible, but not great either.

Personally don't like the smell....It smells like rotton vegetables. Not sure the effect

This is my second brand of geranium oil, and I have decided that the oil will never have the same fresh smell as when you rub up against a geranium leaf.... I am going to mix it well will a carrier oil and hopefully will be able to use it on my skin.

Well... it is different smell than I thought. But it seems to be a pure essential oil, can blend with other oils when use.

I bought this based on the reviews but I'm not a big fan of it. It has an unusual smell to it when you sniff the bottle. I used it in a diffuser and it was nice in that way, but not my favourite. Is prefer rose oil itself, not a geranium floral. I'm going to give it to someone who can use it!
