Tell us your best smelling products! For fun!

I notice we often all talk about many properties of a shampoo or conditioner or gel or whateva'. Usually we note the smell. I was curious to know what you all think the best smelling products are in any categories and what scent they have.

Feel free to chime in here!

Here's mine:

Best smelling

Shampoo: Sweet Nature by Eddie's Inspiration Shampoo--smells like sweet tarts but sweeter--I could get on smelling this!

Soap or Shampoo Bar or similar: Kathymack's Vanilla Ylang Ylang and Whispering Winds Vanilla Bean Noel soap/shampoo in a jar

Conditioner: Curls Curly Q Coconut Dream Condish best coconut smell ever! Runners up are Komaza Aloe Conditioner--smells kind of flowery sweet but a nice smell and Oyin Honey Hemp which is like an orange creamsicle-YUM!

Spray Moisturizer or Leave In: Tie between Sweet Nature by Eddie Growth Spray and Shescentit Moisture Mist

Stylers (curl creme's, gels, pomades,etc): Oyin Shine and Define - citrusy but sweet and Afroveda Shea Amla--musky and sexy and Curl Junkie Smoothing Gellee--not exactly sure but subtle sweetness

Other not-sure-of-the-category: Deva Set It Free-candy'ish and lovely!

I love KBB products scented with either Chamomile Sage or Egyptian Musk. I also love the scent of Max Green Alchemy styling gel.

Also I love the scent of Deva Set It Free...smells like candy but is not overpowering.

I'm not going to label them "shampoo, conditioner, ect"! I'm just going to list some of my best-smelling products:

-Suave Naturals Tropical Coconut conditioner
-GVP Conditioning Balm
-Jessicurl CC in Island Fantasy (leaves my hair smelling like coconuts!)
-GF Curl Shaping Spray Gel (smells like fruit!)

I don't even low-poo, but I like the smell of Herbal Essences Drama Clean shampoo, which I used to use in rotation with other shampoos before going CG. It smells like slightly tart berries Trader Joe's Refresh Shampoo also smells pretty good...(before going fully CG, I used sulfate-free shampoo because I had read Curly Girl by Lorraine Massey...although it didn't help much because my products had silicones and non-fatty alcohols, and I was using Suave as my main conditioner, which wasn't nearly enough moisture).
Curl Type: 2c-3a, Medium thickness, Normal Porosity
Weekly Low-poo: TJ Pure Castile Soap
Co-wash: V05 Strawberries and Cream
Conditioner: GVP Conditioning Balm (Possibly HG!), GF Triple Nutrition

The original Herbal Essence shampoo from the 70's was the best smell ever. I can still smell it. Horrible for hair but I adored it.

Anything in Jessicurl Island Fantasy.
Suave coconut conditioner.
Ojon RT. People either love it or hate it. I am addicted to it. To me it smells like chocolate, fresh ground coffee, wood smoke, fall leaves, fresh tobacco, and the woods all rolled into one. Love it.

Too funny! About 2 months ago I made a lot of FSG for my coworkers so they said they liked HE. So I ordered the "original" Herbal Essences scent (like I remember!) and they got their FSG and were like--what's that scent? I have a whole FO of it!

End Guano

These are some great responses! Amazing how many of us like similar smells!

Believe it or not, it's this random gel that my mom picked up for me who knows where called Spike It Extreme Hold Gel. It smells insanely good--not exactly perfumey, not exactly sweet--just a unique and obsessive smell. It took me about a year to figure out that it was this gel that smelled so great too, because I had it, but I only used it every once in a while. Now that I know what smells so heavenly, I'll be using it more often for sure

Although a lot of people hate the scent, I love AOHRs scent because it does smell like honeysuckle to me.
