I Find Pleasure in This Garden

I have been using Kama Sutra Sensual Massage Oil for years, in several different scents. It's smooth and absorbs easily, and a bottle lasts a long time. The rose-based Pleasure Garden scent is my favorite, and I'm sure I will continue to use it as long as it's available.
Nice scent
Good consistency
Leaves skin soft & smelling good
Tall, leaky bottle

extremely useful review
Kama Sutra Sensual Massage Oil in the Pleasure Garden scent is my favorite massage oil. I have also used the Sweet Almond scent, but I find it to be a little too sweet and heavy for me. The Pleasure Garden scent is a light floral, with rose being the predominant note. I really like rose-scented products, and while they are usually too feminine for use on men, this oil can be used on either men or women. It's not a masculine scent by any means, but after using it, what's left is subtle and with more than just floral tones, so I don't think most men would have a problem with it. And as for myself, I think it's divine.

This massage oil is medium in thickness, as far as massage oils go. It has a base of soybean oil and grape seed oil. There are lighter oils available that have just grape seed oil as their base, for when you want a massage "quickie," and there are also heavier oils, but I like this one for its middle-of-the-road consistency. This is a great oil to go to for a long, romantic massage without drowning the skin in oil that doesn't readily absorb. Make sure the room is warm, put some nice music on (Hawaiian perhaps, or classical guitar), put down a beach towel or extra sheet on the bed, and invite your partner in for a full massage experience. If you use a moderate amount of this oil to begin with (a couple of teaspoons, warmed in your palm before application), it will last quite awhile before you will need to apply more.

This Kama Sutra oil is as smooth as silk. It doesn't get clumpy or sticky; it just gently and gradually absorbs into the skin leaving it soft and nice-smelling. If you've received a thorough, full-body massage, you will want to shower to rinse off any remaining oil (it especially collects in creases, where too much oil gathers so it can't be absorbed easily, and on hair). If you want to avoid a shower, make sure your partner uses a very small amount, reapplying more often as needed, and avoid those areas where the oil can build up. Oil-based products like this should not be used internally as lubricant, unless that is specifically what it is made for.

The ingredients in this massage oil are the same for each of the fragrances, and are:
Glycine Soja (Soybean) Oil, Vitis Vinifera (Grape) Seed Oil, Pistacia Vera Seed Oil, C 12-15 Alkyl Benzoate, Caprylic/Capric Triglyceride, Prunus Amygdalus Dulcis (Sweet Almond) Oil, Fragance (Parfum), Tocopheryl Acetate, Lecithin, Amyl Cinnamal, Benzyl Benzoate, Citronellol, Geraniol, Limonene, Linalool

The oil comes in a tall, narrow bottle that is pretty enough to leave out, maybe on a counter or vanity with similar products. Kama Sutra does a nice job on the artwork and graphics on their products, making them attractive and discreet. The design of the bottle itself is my one complaint about this massage oil. It's so tall that it easily falls over, and the lid can be leaky. I have had a couple of leaking incidents with Kama Sutra oils over the years. I would much prefer it in a shorter, wider bottle, with a lid that has a double seal to prevent leakage.
Follow-up commentary
I had to do a follow-up right away because after doing the review, I left the bottle out on my living room table, and somehow it got knocked over (probably cat #1 or cat #2), and a bunch of it leaked out onto my living room carpet! See, I told you so. Aaaargh!!

    Great review! This sounds divine, but I'd probably be switching it into another bottle if I picked it up. Let's hope that Kama Sutra reads your review and takes up your suggestion.

    A different bottle...that's a great idea! You would have thought I would have figured that out sometime in the 10-or-so years I've been using it!
