I actually think the jasmine lily is the lightest scent I have. I guess it's true that strength seems to vary from batch to batch. I love it, though not as much as sandalwood and chamomile sage. Cocomango is lovely too, though it smells a little strong at first, it's light once on the hair. I do not like pom guava at all.
You should ask for a sample of jasmine lily and maybe get the rest of your stuff unscented.

I got my Hair Milk and Nectar today. One of them (the hair milk I think) is Chamomile Sage and a bit strong for me (i'm super sensitive). If I can exchange it I may look for a swap.

Thanks for the help with scents. For those of you familiar, my favorite perfume is Estee Lauder Beyond Paradise. Any idea if it is similar?

I may try ordering a 1/2 strength of the Jasmine Lily. I'll post if they custom make orders.

Anxiously awaiting the sale.....

I don't know how she'll communicate the sale. From what Grace said, she'll email me when it starts. As soon as I hear something, I'll post it.

Do they have an email contact list? Maybe she could communicate it that way? I don't know...

However, I need some opinions on scents. I have samples of the White Tea, Cham/Sage, Oatmeal/Honey and Vanilla Latte - thanks to Kathymack. They are all ok but a little strong for me. I don't think I want to order a full size.

Can anyone describe the Jasmine/Lily? Is it lighter than the above? Any other recommendations for light scents?
TIA!
Ack! I place an order yesterday! I, too, was wondering about Jasmine Lily. I love the White Tea, but only in the milk. The White Tea nectar was totally different to me and was nauseating. I don't necessarily like floral, but I like fresh, and jasmine always seems kind of fresh to me. I ordered both jasmine lily and white tea items, so if I can remember, I'll post about them. I ordered shower gels, body sprays, lotion, and hand creme. I can't use the milk or nectar--my hair hates the oils.

When you place an order, you get a little card in your shipment that gives you $5 off your next $50 purchase. That's the code that was given.

I couldn't wait anymore so I just used the code hairlove and got 20% on my hairproducts. I wasn't sure it still worked, since it was a code from last year, but various of the posts were from Sept. So, long story short, I got 20% when I used the hairlove code.

Hope it helps the ones who can't wait anymore!

GRRRR..... I tried that code when I ordered and it didn't work! Just got my KBB stuff from UPS, headed off for my 3rd wash in 24 hrs - just can't wait to try it.

When I first tried the code, I had a problem too. I then read that you have to have a minimum purchase of $40 to use the coupon.

Has anyone heard anything yet? I am almost out of my hair milk sample from Kathymack, I might just break down and use the hairlove code. Not like I wouldn't order more if and when the sale happens!!

I started a thread with the new coupons, LOL! Of course, I just bought 2 milk and 2 nectar this morning. I emailed them to see if I can use the coupon. It only works for one--I tried it. You can't use the hairlove coupon with it.

As soon as I posted, I went to the product review section and saw your post. Are we on the same wavelength with KBB or what?

I went online to do an order, but I realized that all 3 items have to be the exact same thing. I wanted to order hair nectar, milk and cream but it wouldn't let me do that. In fine print on the homepage it says all must be the same item (which is a real bummer in my opinion). I just don't think I want to have 3 of any one product right now. I haven't purchased yet (have been using samples) so I need a bit of everything. Oh well, I'll just have to pay full price for everything...
