It comes out a little bit rough. The scent is the same as the cream type, and it feels like a sweet baby powder. I don't think it bothers me because it doesn't leave much scent. Certainly, the sprayed area will make your fingers smoother, so if you give it a squeak before tying your hair, you can get a very nice finish.
It smells like soft serve ice cream. The scent is quite strong and is about the same as the undiluted solution of vanilla essence. I'll get rid of my sleep soon. It is mousse or hair cream and spreads well with a small amount. The size is easy to carry around and the package is cute.
