I've noticed that the tube version had a thicker consistency and a very subtle perfume scent, while the pump version is a little more runny and smells kinda weird! I can't put my finger on the smell, but everyone I've talked to who has used it says it reminds them of "a wet dog" LOL. Despite the strange smell, I'm still giving this product a high rating because it does a really good job at moisturizing my coarse, dry hair without weighing it down or coating it like other silicone-laden products tend to do. And a little DOES go a long way! I think that if I ever do run out of my pump bottle of Terax Crema, I'll probably go back to the tube version.
