Default Anyone try AO GPB in scents?

I love how AO GPB helps my fine wavy hair, but I hate the smell-too perfumy for me. Has anyone tried the rosemary mint or lavender ylang ylang scents? I am trying peppermint and lavender EO in some of the regular formula to see if that helps.

I have the rosemary peppermint one from Whole Foods. It still smells "herbally", but not as much as the original scent. I don't mind it and it doesn't seem to linger. Scents don't seem to bother me as much as some people, so I may not be a good judge.

Thanks!!
Does it have that old lady perfume smell too? That would be my nephews opinion of the originals fragrance.

The lavender ylang ylang conditioner is HG for me. I could not take the regular scent; smelled too medicinal to me. I am not a fan of mint scents, so the LYY smells great to me, and it doesn't linger.

I thought the scented GPB products were exclusive to Whole Foods. Have you seen them anywhere else?

This is great to know! I have WF down the road from me, but I think it's usually more expensive (like at the times i need to buy) than showing on iHerb. Thanks for mentioning!
