I don't want to smell like a cake or a marshmallow or a cinnamon swirl or a fruity jam. Frankly, even Clarins, Nivea and Astral are too perfume-y. Dr Haushka do a rosemary foot balm that smells completely perfect...but is drying and well...for feet. What else could I try?

L'Occitane cream (Divine) in the yellow jar.
QVC keep saying it smells "herbal"

IMO it smells like piss'n'mildew hmm
I got a jar in a set, kept it for my neck only

Skin blossom body lotion (from Ocado), I really like Senspa from Waitrose too. Hauschka hand cream is v nice.
Also I really like Original Source Orange Blossom body butter. Not fruity but lovely.

Hmm, a lot of the high-end brands tend to have quite herbal-y smelling moisturisers - the following come to mind: Neal's Yard, Décleor, Dr Hauschka, Dermalogica, Elemis, the list is endless really...

One thing I would add is that if you've got fairly sensitive skin then some essential oils and perfumes (i.e. the things that make moisturisers smell nice and herbal) can be irritating to the skin - so maybe try a sample first if you're at all worried about it.

Aloe Vera the vaseline one is very fresh and plant smelling.
Body shop green tea.

Neal's Yard, herby but mildly clinical too. Definitely not perfumey
