I have been using this for 5 years on my one child and will be using on the new baby. It smells amazing! I have a fairly sensitive sense of smell and I would not say this is "strongly" or "highly" scented as others have indicated. It's mild and such a soft, nice scent. As with any pump bottle, yes, it does crust a little and can squirt in interesting directions. I cup my hand over the opening while pressing and also the cloth which I use to wipe the clog. This big bottle lasts a good amount of time, as for a stinky 5 year old boy, you barely need 1 pump for hair (mine have lots) and 1-2 pumps on the cloth for body. I still avoid the eyes, but it is no-tears formula which is nice. The fact it is a Canadian product and mostly plant based ingredients is a total bonus. Way better than a majority of products out there.
