Several times over the years, on a whim, I have applied Tiger Balm on the back of my hand just because I enjoy the camphoraceous, medicinal scent. I like the accords in Spirit of the Tiger just as much, and itís not as aggressive to the nose as Tiger Balm is the first hour after it is applied. Still, it is interesting how similar they smell. Spirit of the Tiger is more refined than Tiger Balm, and not as medicinal, which is entirely to be expected. SotT is camphoraceous and minty and, especially, clovey. It is thoroughly enjoyable. No need to describe this fragrance any further. If anyone wants to know what it smells like, just get a jar of Tiger Balm. Of course, this recommendation can be turned in on itself: no need to buy a $150 bottle of Spirit of the Tiger, for less than one-twentieth the cost, just get the real thing ó it lasts as long and has the additional healing benefits, too.
