"The only Talcum powder containing pure natural sandalwood oil, Rich in cooling and healing qualities" I have and use this talc for various purposes, including an occasional "finish" to an application of all-natural deodorants. I enjoy the scent of Mysore Sandal products, its a very pungent sandalwood, and a lasting one to boot. Will not overpower, but I detect traces of it throughout the day and into the evening. Complements the bath soap very well :happy088 Some background information on the maker's of Mysore Sandal products: The Government Soap Factory was established by the Maharaja of Mysore his Highness Nalwadi Krishnaraja Wodeyar and Diwan Sir.M.Visvesvaraya during the year 1916.
