    It smells so sweet!
    Smells like skittles! Maybe that IS the scent I'm used to. IDK. I noticed my serum smells a lot stronger than I remember the conditioner smelling, but the scent isn't that different. If my serum is the "new" scent, I like it! (I haven't used a lot of Fructis products so I'm really not sure.)

    Has anyone tried the Garnier Fructis Length & Strength Shampoo? I looked at the Garnier website, cuz I just *love* their hair coloring products, and looked at all their shampoos. Amazingly you can get it on the cheap at Soap.com!
    Thought I'd share that with y'all.

    The GTN that I have (albeit in my stash from months and months ago) has a very faint, vague smell to it, nothing atrocious. I'm not sure if we have the new formulas over here (Europe, Belgium).

    If your bottle is from months and months ago, it's probably the old formula. Does it have a flat top, i.e. will it stand upside-down? Here in Austria the new smell came at the same time as a new bottle shape with a rounded top.

    It does have a flat top, will stand upside down. It has that tiny (annoying) ball cap in the middle.

    Mine smells like bananas...??? (I have had the same bottle for quite some time...months) But this makes me wonder, I noticed I was unable to get results from the GFTN like I used to. I bet it coincided with the purchase of this most recent bottle.

    I am SO SICK of the constant change of products.

    That sucks. Panteen did that with all their shampoos about two years ago, & I've quit using everything by them. They even took their Intense Damage Repair creme away (it went by multiple names.) Long story short, I am no longer a fan.
