I've bought LA Looks Gel, Pantene spray gel, KMF mousse, Aquage Cream and I like them all but to me the smell is not long lasting at all...and sometimes I just want my hair to smell good all day but I haven't found any CG products yet that do that for me. What are some of your favorite styling products that make your hair smell good all day? Oh, my favorite smells run the gamut...Pantene/HE/Dove scents aren't my favorites as well as any gardenia or rose scented products...but anything else is fair game in my book. Thanks.

    I feel like the scents of CJ Pattern Pusha, CJ Repair Me and Shea Moisture Style Milk all seem to last longer than other products.

    Way back when I used Marie Dean and those scents were STRONG.
    Coarse texture, normal-high porosity, normal elasticity (Komaza Care), very weak waves
    cleanser: Redken Fresh Curls Shampoo, CJ Daily Fix

    rinse out: GVP Conditioning Balm, CJ Beauticurls, CJ Smoothing

    jellies/creams: CR Curl Maker, KCCC
    gels: CJ CQ, CJ Pattern Pusha, BRHG

    KCCC lasts pretty much until I wash it out, which is usually at least 3 days. It just has a nice vanilla custardy fragrance that doesn't fight with perfume or anything, just makes my hair smell nice.

    In the unlikely event you're old enough to have used Flex products back in the day, it's a bit like that, but from natural ingredients.
    2C/3A/3B - modified CG - fairly fine now, normal/low porosity/normal elasticity

    Current Main Rotation: MG217 medicated or Aim2Health 'poos for scalp, Elucence cond., Spiral Solutions Protein & Deeply Decadent Cond., CJCCCC reg or lite,CJ Pattern Pusha,, Giovanni LA Hold Hair Spritz + lots more, sporadically

    HG Method: Super Soaker + Smasters-ing, brief upside down diffusing w/360o diffuser then clips/clamps & air dry. Newly gray - stopped my henna glosses!

    I think the Jane Carter scents are the best and last all day....BUT...I don't have much luck with their stuff (except the Nourish & Shine, which I LOVE). Today I used the Condition and Sculpt just so it would smell good, lol. Doesn't look that great, but it smells wonderful! :)
    2C/ Coarse/ Normal porosity/ SW Florida/ Salt & Pepper
    Cleanse: AIA cowash, TJ Tea Tree Condish
    Condish: JC Too Shea, Tresemme Botanique
    Stylers: flax/okra gel or KCCC + CJ PP or JC Spiralicious
    Experimenting with Got2B Ultra gel and loving it so far!

    the CG products that i've come across that smell great are

    JCS
    KCCC
    SM C&H C&S Milk

    I don't know how long lasting they are though. You can try making your own FSG and adding EOs and using teas for the base to make it smell nice.
    2bc/ f / ii. low porosity roots + normal-high porosity shaft where bleached. normal elasticity.

    Currently using:
    Poo: Earthbath Oatmeal & Aloe
    RO: V05 Kiwi Lime
    LI: CJ Smoothing Lotion

    PT: CJ Repair Me

    :thumright: hydrolized protein, jelly stylers
    :angry8: guar hydroxypropyltrimonium chloride, sulfates, jojoba oil

    Oh and I don't think these are available everywhere (Aussie brands) but Renew and Sukin smell amazing!!! I would wear those as perfume if they made it in that form.
