I personally LOVE OV. To me it IS soapy, but it's a different kind of soapy than other frags. Like, when I usually think of "soapy" to me it means it's a clean & fresh frag that makes you feel like you've just gotten out of the shower. OV makes me feel that way, but it also makes me feel like I've used a really expensive & fragrant soap. Sorry I can't describe it any better, lol. But I definitely recommend it.
