I like the Chandrika soap but it is no Mysore Sandal soap. Of course, nothing is Mysore Sandal soap. It is in a league of its own. Chandrika soap is a little bright green bar. The color is really kelly green and the dye kind of stained my tub where I had it sitting. It did scrub off however with some elbow grease. The fragrance is really nice but doesn’t linger 0n the skin as long as Mysore’s. (Mysore’s is really strong and actually adds fragrance to my entire house.) The fragrance of Chandrika’s is a spicy blend of sandalwood, patchouli, and green “fresh” herbs. It is a really nice scent that wears nicely with many fragrance oils. It is unisex and cleanses very well. It retails for $1.69 and can actually be found at Indian markets or drugstore.com.
