Sensous, Slick, Strong Scented

Try Kama Sutra's massage oil if you want a slick, long lasting sensual experience and a scent that will waft through the entire room. This bottle is half the size of the regular so it's a great option if you don't frequently use massage oil or want to keep your collection varied. However, the scent may be too strong, especially if you don't love florals.
Slick, long lasting, strong smell.
Very floral, may be too strong for some.

Kama Sutra's massage oil in the pleasure garden scent is a fantastic way to wind down after a long day or work yourself up before play time. Although you can use it for solo massage, a couple or group session would especially benefit from this slick oil.

Texture / Consistency / Thickness / Viscosity

Kama Sutra's massage oil is quite thin. Even though the opening in the push-top bottle isn't that large, it comes out rather quickly so you will want to pour with caution. However, the thinness allows you to easily rub it across skin and it's quite slick. It does feel a little greasy at first but it's far less greasy than some of the alternatives.

After working it into the skin, yours will feel quite soft and nourished. You may want to wash your hands if you've been massaging or you may leave the oil to soak in and moisturize.

Taste / Aroma

The Pleasure Garden scent smells like a garden. It's very floral and there's a hint of leafy foliage as well. The bottle describes a mix of essential oils that include ylang ylang, neroli, rose, lavender and sandalwood so the scent is a mixture of those. It is a very strong scent that affects the air around you and stays on your skin for quite a long time. In fact, even after washing my hands I could still smell it. This really adds to the atmosphere but could be overpowering for some.

Unlike some of Kama Sutra's other products, this is not meant for ingestion.
    • Strong smell


This massage oil lasts a surprisingly long time. Its slickness aids the massage process so that your hands glide easily over skin, whether yours or someone else's. It will leave your skin feeling super soft and moisturized. Despite the fact that the bottle is "petite," it still offers a lot of mileage for 4-ounces.

As it dries, it does not get sticky or cause drag on your skin. You may feel the need to wash it off but I did not.
    • Absorbs into skin nicely
    • Long lasting
    • Performance


This massage oil comes in a bottle with a push-top. The bottle is sealed beneath the cap and you must remove that before use. The bottle features the green and gold Kama Sutra label which looks quite elegant against the yellow hue of the oil itself. It's not fancy but it's functional and easy to use.

All the information about ingredients is located on the back of the bottle.

    I dont think I want to smell like a garden, but thanks for the great review.
  • Mike Honcho
    I was interested in this product until I read your review. The strong floral smell might be a bit more than we are looking for. Thank you for a great review!

    It's odd because I also have the almond and I find the scent to be too weak!
  • ~LaUr3n~
    Ugh! I wanted the almond. I have a sensitive sniffer. Maybe I'll find it stronger.
  • Adriana Ravenlust
    Lauren, I have a pretty sensitive nose. I'm always smelling something the roommate isn't.. but I think the almond also doesn't smell how I'd expect.
