Pumpkin & Ginger! I am in heaven. I like the Sweet Almond Mint a lot but the scent is just ok. The Pumpkin Ginger is amazing (performs about the same, but better scent). FYI - This has more of a pumpkin pie spice smell, than just a plain baked pumpkin pie and there still is that minty hint there due to the menthol in the ingredients. I am still gauging if this scent is causing a slight irritation...something was...but I am not sure if it is just the changing weather or this scent. I know the Sweet Almond Mint caused no issues (but I only used that one for a month). I will probably enjoy the scent of the Pumpkin one, but I won't be restocking or getting back ups because regardless of what is bugging my scalp (or if it is all in my head) I think the Sweet Almond Mint might work a touch better for my scalp/fine wavy hair. UPDATE: I ended up not using the Pumpkin Wen anymore. By this point I have been using Wen pretty exclusively since July (about 3 months of Wen) with clarifying as needed. If I go back to Wen I will go back to the Sweet Almond Mint because while using that...no issues (might have been too early in the process for issues or maybe that one is better...IDK). I can't say for sure what is what, but I just started losing too much hair to ignore. I am a shedder, losing hair never freaked me out before...but this was an insane amount. I tried to talk myself out of it and Wen leaves your hair feeling thicker so I kept telling myself I was imagining it. But after a few more weeks, I just couldn't take any more chances. It isn't hormones, stress, diet or anything else that has changed...been checked out. My hair dresser and I will exchange products to try once in a while. She would not take the Wen to try despite how nice it smelled. That was a bit surprising too. I honestly can't say Wen = scary shedding/hair loss. But, it just isn't worth the chance right now. I would drop the rating down, but if I do then non-objective Wen worshipers start to read it and just mark the reviews as unhelpful and that hurts my reputation here. I am not saying don't try it. Just if that little voice in your head is saying something doesn't feel right...don't ignore it too long. UPDATE 10/8/12: OMG...I totally called it! I had a helpful rating of 2 out of 2 found this helpful before I added the part about it not working for me. Now it is 2 out of 3 found this helpful...as soon as I said anything negative. I knew it! Not every product works for everyone. It's not evil, but it isn't great for me either.
