I get migraines from scent too but I love this scent (floral scents are the ones that head my head pounding and this has no florals). I've never smelled the new lighter scent so I don't know what it smells like.

Have you tried Jessicurl products? They can be purchased unscented (although I love the Island Fantasy scent).
