We're Losing Our Minds Over The ACTUAL Smell Of Sudocrem

One of the most heated debates in Lovin HQ history occurred yesterday as we argued over the smell of Sudocrem.

Sudocrem is an Irish staple, it's hard to go into any bathroom without finding a tub of the white nappy rash and healing cream.

Got a burn? Put some Sudocrem on it. 

A cut? Sudocrem.

A spot?

A hickey? Obviously.

Literally everything. Sure it's magical stuff. 

But what does this popular household must-have smell like?

Many people would say childhood or... nothing? It just smells like... Sudocrem.

Someone in work however, claims it's lavender scented.

After much debate, we took to Google and apparently, though I hate to admit it, she's right!

I first checked out for an ingredient listing and there it was, right at the bottom of the list:

I personally, have NEVER smelt lavender from it.

My search continued as I came across a blog that had gotten in touch with the brand directly and they said:

"Sudocrem has confirmed VIA email with me that Sudocrem Antiseptic Healing Cream does contain lavender fragrance and that they do not manufacture a fragrance free formulation of this product."

What do you think? Does it smell like lavender?
