My mom kept complaining that the local stores were delivering duplicate Dove soaps becoz they smelled really bad and weren't lasting over a week. We usually bathe at least twice daily and use soap on both occasions. We've been using Dove for over 15 years now and so we know our soaps. Our Dove soaps would last for at least 15 days where as duplicate ones would disappear just with in a week and were causing skin irritation. So I ordered these from Amazon and now our life is back to normal. This one is an original product.
