What does it smell like?
I'm very interested in a good remover which is gentle and non-oily. So, I'm thinking about trying this product. One of the reviews described it as "stinky," however. Since stinkiness is really in the nose of the smeller, I'm hoping someone can tell me what it smells like? Roses? Olive oil? Rancid nuts? Oven cleaner? But seriously, this would be very helpful. Also, a note about how strong the scent is would be nice.

You're right, the smell is in the nose of the smeller...lol...If you can stand the smell of depilatory products, then you'll be okay with this one. A whole lot milder than depilatory creams but definitely no Chanel :)
It doesn't have a distinct scent and whatever it does have isn't strong. I'm sensitive to just about any highly scented products and it didn't give me a raging headache, if that helps.
As for those who say it's greasy--of course it is! It's melting *waterproof* make-up. I dare them to find a waterproof eye make-up remover that works and isn't greasy. Further, you can always wash your face afterward so there isn't a residue.

It's not a gel (like it says it is), it's a cream and it leaves a disgusting residue on your skin after using it. I did not like it at all and will be returning it shortly. Don't waste your money!

It has a VERY light scent of sunflowers when I smell it but I imagine that's because it has sunflower oil in it... just guessing though.

I personally think it smells like really bad old lady perfume that has been sitting out for a month..

I really didn't find a problem with the scent at all. Quite bland actually. Maybe the person got a rancid tube or something.
I just left a review about this product and to be truthful, I really liked it but, it's small and so expensive.
It's not greasy and really nice but wasn't worth the buck.
If you want something really great, try soap and glory's off your face gwipes. They are inexpensive and don't test on animals, like UD.
They are also non greasy and one wipe does an incredible job.
Good luck and I hope I helped you out!

I think it has a sweet honey smell....it is definitely not medicinal or musty. Personally, I like it!

i asked my fiance what it smelled like to him since i really couldnt find words to explain it and he said it sort of smelled like my powder but that it wasnt foul smelling at all, but a nice clean smell...hope it helps, it is after all just an opinion :)

Funny that it should be thought of as "stinky"...I am very susceptible to smells and bad smells really annoy me, but I don't remember an issue with this. I did return it, though, because it does not remove the Urban Decay waterproof mascara and that's why I bought it.

If you're looking for a makeup remover that easily takes off your makeup without scrubbing, this is it! I was extremely surprised and delighted to see its abilities in action on my first encounter with it. The smell isn't over powering and a little bit goes a long ways! It takes off waterproof makeup easily!

To me, it just smells like regular face lotion/cream. It doesn't seem to have a distinct scent, but again that's just me. Smell is such a difficult sense to describe, it's unique to each individual.
