Rated 1 out of 5 by Jbvenezia Misstep by Kiehl's
This product replaces the previous Argan oil conditioner and it is a poor substitute. The fragrance is cloying and makes me want to wash my hair again. It works fine -if you can get past the stench.
Bring back the old formula, Kiehl's! It didn't need "improvement."
Rated 1 out of 5 by dorothy i couldn't get over the scent
i tried this when they discontinued the previous argan oil conditioner. i used it once and then had to go exchange it for a different conditioner. the old argan oil conditioner had such a pleasant, subtle scent. this one has an overwhelming, upsetting scent. it ruined my day when i used it. all day long, every time i moved, i got a whiff of this terrible scent. i have liked kiehls for years because its products generally don't have strong, floral or fruity scents. they tend towards the herbal and medicinal. i guess now they're moving away from that? it sucks.
thankfully, the sales person was super helpful and allowed me to exchange this disgusting conditioner for another, which i chose purely based on the most inoffensive scent—the damage repairing, rehydrating conditioner. i don't like it nearly as well in terms of function or scent as the old argan oil conditioner, but at least it doesn't make me physically ill and unhappy.

It's former iteration was extraordinary. This new version smells SO BAD it takes 2 shampoos to get rid of the stink. Just ridiculous. The old version could feel strange but the end result was amazing. Nothing can make up for the horrible stink of this product. Whoever developed it should be moved to a different dept. It's the WORST. SMELL. EVER.
Bring back the good stuff.
Rated 1 out of 5 by Lory I wish I had read the reviews before I allowed a sales person at the San Francisco store to sell this to me on the basis that it was better than the Argan Oil conditioner that it replaced. This products reeks like bad perfume and the odor does not go away. I have used this twice and I will either try to return it or throw it away.
Rated 2 out of 5 by Plater Very disappointing
This is a very poor successor to the Argan oil conditioner. It no longer contained essential oils and it smells appalling. Even worse, the smell does not fade so there is no escape.
Rated 3 out of 5 by jandrewx Great product, unfortunate scent
I have wavy/frizzy hair and this product is definitely helping with that. I used to use the argan oil products and I really liked them, and these are clearly their replacement offering. (In fact, in a lot of ways, these products work even better than the argan line (especially in reducing frizz and making hair look collected and smooth). However, I'm not sure I can ever buy it again simply because of the scent. It's extremely strong and floral. It's really too bad that they went with something that's both so intense and so different from the discontinued line's smell.
So, they are great product if you like/tolerate the scent.
Rated 5 out of 5 by jedboy1 Outstanding Conditioner for Dry, Curly Hair
My hair thrived on the argan oil product line and I was sorry to see it go. The oil-infused products have been excellent, giving me shiny soft hair with no frizz at all. I've received many compliments, including just today from some ladies at my polling place. My hair starts off dry from being curly and old, with some gray if I didn't color it (which I do) with highlights. You can see it has major natural and chemical dryness that the oil infused products handle very well. Other reviewers think the fragrance is bad, but I think it is an unusual floral scent that does not last long. I hope Kiehl's never replaces this product!
Rated 2 out of 5 by ACJ3 Not loving it
One of my favorite Kiehl's products ever was the argon oil conditioner. I tried this as a replacement when that one was discontinued and it is not a good replacement. My main dislike is the overly strong floral fragrance. It probably works the same but I can't seem to get over the new smell. I purchased a tube of this product not just the complementary sample.
