Intelligent Nutrients Anti-Aging Body & Hair Elixir: Innercalm Wind Down

Disclaimer: I purchased this.
This has been the summer of body oils for me. I use them after showering to lock in moisture and after doing yoga for a quick body massage. Consequently, I've been searching for oils that are good for me while still providing a pleasing sensory experience. Enter Innercalm Wind Down by Intelligent Nutrients ($54 for 3.4 oz), which calls itself an anti-aging total body elixir.
Intelligent Nutrients was founded by Horst Rechelbacker, the guy who brought Aveda into the world.  All of the products are certified organic, vegan, cruelty-free, and made from plants.  You can read more about the company ethos here - it's impressive.
Using Ayurvedic principles based on the body's vibrational zones (Chakras), Innercalm #5 (throat center) is is supposed to smell like a clean citrus by way of Morocco, with sweet orange, white grapefruit and mandarin mingling with warm floral notes of neroli and petitgrain to create a calm and tranquil combination. It succeeds in that area, although the scent lasts for only a few hours at best.  My skin remains soft and silky for the entire day, however.

Innercalm is out of stock right now at Intelligent Nutrients and I purchased my 1.7 oz bottle on sale at beauty.com, which leads me to believe this particular scent is being discontinued.  There are 7 different body and hair elixirs, however, so there are others to try out. Good stuff, and I'm glad this brand in now on my radar.
