I've read a few other reviews about the smell being a bit much, but I actually loved the smell. It's a shame the conditioner doesn't actually do anything for my hair. In fact, it was difficult just to distribute through my hair due to it's weird consistency. It left my hair limp, tangled, and not the least bit moisturized, which I am pretty sure is the opposite of what a conditioner should do. Thankfully, I tried this as a sample, so not too much of a loss on my end. I would not purchase the full size, especially at the absurd asking price, and would not recommend it to others.
