I got to say, the scent is amazing, and the bottle looks so premium and luxurious! Smells like a bottle of expensive men's cologne, and the scent lingers for quite a few hours after use. It lathers pretty well, just a small amount is enough for my medium length thick head of hair. I've only used it thrice so far, I don't have any complaints about it being overly drying like some others are saying, but then again I am blessed with extremely thick and healthy hair so perhaps it doesn't matter as much to me. Now I'm definitely looking to try more from their lineup!
