Okay, so I finally tried this! Lots of volume, no flaking, deep black color, but...the scent is awful!! It smells like some sort of chemical spray, maybe mosquito repellant. It does dissipate after a few minutes, so if you can get past that, I think you'll be impressed. That said, I have been using the original Eyes to Kill since it came out and have been totally happy with it. Hope this helps!
