    I change up personal scent during the seasons, so I like to use fruity scents in the spring and summer, like coconut. For this I use Suave naturals in coconut, coconut oil, KCKT, and Curl Junkie CIAB, and go for a more citric-y perfume. In the fall and winter I like more spicy or floral scents, so I use more olive oil, cinnamon, GVCB from Sally's, Curl Keeper, and L'Oreal humidity leave-in cream with a spicy or floral perfume.

    It's a refresher spray. I don't care for the smell. It's too minty/herbal for me. For some odd reason it reminds me of soda or ginger-ale. Lol

    I like the smell of coconut and sweet scents. My favorite products scents are in KCCC, CJ smoothing lotion, and curls coconut sublime conditioner.

    I know the scent of the DevaCurl stuff is a love/hate thing for many people, but I love it (the no poo in particular). It makes my hair smell so fresh. I also love KCCC's yummy vanilla frosting smell and CJ Curl Rehab in Strawberry Ice Cream. At first it freaked me out a little bit, because it looks and smells exactly like strawberry yogurt. But now I love it.

    Not sure if this is true for other people, but my hair also smells a lot better since doing (mod-)CG. Whenever I let my hair fully or partially air-dry, it smells much better than when I used to blow it dry straight.

    Yes, Coffee-Coco-Curl-Creme-Lite smells fantastic and the smell lasts in the hair.

    KCCC also smells good, it does not last but smells great while it's drying.

    Mostly what I do is just a little perfume at the nape of the neck into the hairline. Whatever one I am wearing that day.

    Coconut smells good in my hair and Oyin's Hair Dew, especially when I add them together.

    I love Jessicurl's Citrus Lavender. I add Lavender, Sweet Orange, and Grapefruit to my FSG and other scentless products.

    That's the problem I fond with most products: the smell doesn't last on the hair.

    It's funny, I just posted about this in a thread I started. My husband complimented the smell of my hair this morning, and it's the first time he's ever done this.

    Overall since using the CG products my hairs smells fresh, and it never seemed to in the past. I love the scent of Coffee-Coco Curl Creme Light because even though it's sweet it's clean-smelling. It smells good enough to eat!

    Mist-er Right Lavender Spray is amazing for my hair. It smells fantastic. It doesn't "radiate" like perfume, but it keeps a clean fragrance on my hair. (This instantly soothes any occasional scalp itch, too.)

    Lots of people hate it, but I like the scent of Set It Free. I smell it only when I spray it. The smell doesn't seem to last on my hair, but it smells like Key Lime Pie, and I adore Key Lime Pie.

    I adored the smell of these two products but for some reason the combination would make my hair feel sticky. They both smell divine

    Oooo - if you like "spicy" scents you could mix some cardamom, ginger, or cinnamon into your deep treatments! I often added different spices when I used to dye my hair with henna, and I loved the smell. It seemed to last several days.

    .

    The Hair Dew smells edible, it smells like when my mother is baking cookies or something. It's light enough for me to use everyday and you don't need a lot of it. My 8oz bottle has lasted at least two months and I use it regularly.

    I may definitely try this with my henna. I love the process but I'm so not liking its lingering smell.
