Lovely smelling oil

I received this as the second selection for the Oil of the Month Club, and I thought Malaleuca, this will be medicinal camphorous smelling. This is why I have never added it to my collection. It does have that smell, but seems to be buffered by a fruity smell as well. Quite lovely. I wouldn’t hesitate now to add it to my ever growing assortment of oils.
