What does cilantro taste like?

Some people experience cilantro as "tasting like soap." Does this mean cilantro tastes like soap smells or tastes like soap tastes? What does it taste like to people without this soap gene? I dislike cilantro and always get asked if it tastes soapy...I don't think it does, really, but I'm not sure. If I were a cilantro-soap-taster, would I definitely 100% be able to self-identify as such, or is "soapy" a more imprecise description of how it tastes to some folks?
