I was introduced to this by my hair stylist at the salon. The smell is intoxicating. It smells like roses and flowers but it's not a heavy make you cough your lungs out smell. It is a spray wax so you don't need alot. If you use too much your hair will look and feel greasy all day. But hold it about 8 -10 inches away and spray wherever you want style. And it will hold. You can scrunch it, puff it up with tour hands, whatever it gives volume to my hair and it's about $20 at ulta. I've gone through 3 bottles already. It works great for short or long hair and doesn't make it frizz either.
