Works great. A few drops goes a long way! Definitely softens up my beard and makes it much easier to manage. The scent, while quite pleasant, is a bit strong (about the equivalent of aftershave strength) which is the only reason I took off one star. I did notice if I hit the beard with a hair dryer when I'm managing it in the morning, it'll help lessen the scent. Otherwise it'll usually be about 2 hours before the scent dies down. All that being said, I do have a fairly sensitive sense of smell, so it may not bother others. Highly recommend!
