I like the scent for this. Doesn't smell cheap or obnoxious. I can use as little or as much as I want & I can get my hair to hold pretty well. It doesn't work too well for short hair or at least anything less than a number 6-8, anything less than a number 4 it definitely struggles a bit unless you use a lot of it. Basically good for medium hair lengths but I don't doubt it'd be fine for long hair too. It's why I like keep some of the Easy Hold around since I tend to cut my hair short but let it grow out until I feel like cutting it again.
If I could sum it up, it's a lot like hair mousse but stronger, without leaving your hair feeling too stiff or hard. The shine is low but still there, I think that's just how my hair is though, being a very dark brown, I think lighter colours should be fine though.
