    Tide makes washing powder in Oudh / Agarwood and Sandalwood fragrance in the middle-east. My clothes and the laudry room nevewr smelled so good. I tried getting some recently during my visit to Dubai , but couldnt find it anymore.

    I'm also a big fan of the Nancy Boy detergent. I use the lavender-geranium and it smells great without being cloying. Those Middle East Tides do sound interesting though.

    Wow, oudh detergents! Some may think they make clothes dirtier, though ...

    I second Silk's suggestion of Kurkdjian Aqua universalis detergent. I paid 19EUR for 1 liter in France. I don't know the cost here in the US. A little expensive for regular washing, but a luxury once in a while.

    Just yesterday, I was reading that perfumer JM Duriez, creator of Yohji homme and other things, used to work in the functional department. I'd be curious to know which detergents he worked on.

    I cannot deal with most scent powders; to synthetic and over powering. For that reason I use low scent wool wash for all my washing needs.

    Regular scented Gain laundry soap with Regular Downey liquid fabric softener. The two mixed together is pure ambrosia for me. When the dryer is going and you walk outside by the vent it smells soooo good! I have had many people ask me what kind of perfume I'm wearing and I wasn't wearing anything!

    Scented ones all smell the same to my nose - flowery and perfumed to the extreme.

    I love fresh-smelling laundry, but I think the best smelling would be laundry you scent yourself! I tried adding a few drops of tangerine essential oil to my unscented liquid softener. Didn't smell anything when the laundry was dry. I'm nervous about adding more oil - don't want to risk oil marks on my clothes. I thought about spraying an unscented dryer sheet with a fresh fragrance … any suggestions?

    I think the company Fresh makes a scent called Clean Laundry.

    I actually happen to like this: Tide Pure Essentials White Lilac Scent



    It smells clean. With a hint of toothpaste. And what's not to like about white lilacs?

    GAIN!

    I used to buy whatever was on sale, but I've actually gotten compliments on the smell of my laundry when using GAIN. This happened enough times when using GAIN that I eventually stuck with it. The scent seems to fade quickly, which is good because it means it won't conflict with whatever scent I may be wearing. If I do laundry at night, the scent of GAIN seems to be long gone by the time I get dressed in the morning.

    I use ecostore laundry powder. Leaves clothes smelling clean, not that synthetic, generic clean laundry smell, just clean with no odours. A bonus is that it's good for the environment and sensitive skin.

    thats a good idea ive never thought about doing that. i wonder if the oils are hard on any parts of the machine? i know you arent supposed to put a lot of the oils in evaporative humidifiers. might have to look into that...
