When I first received this and opened it to test out the fragrance I was convinced that I wouldn't like it. But I decided to try it out anyways and I'm glad I did. Just a little bit of this stuff goes a long way and in smaller doses the smell is actually a very nice vanilla(ish). I've been using it a little over a month on very long thick hair and I still have half a bottle left. My husband even commented on how soft and shinny my hair has become.
