    It's only a substitute for perfume if you want to smell like fabic softner, which I wouldn't want to smell like.

    I was more interested in this video

    Has anyone put vaseline on your skin before spraying?

    I guess if people wear Clean scents, they could save some $$$.

    That doesn't sound very appealing lol I pass people who smell like Glade a lot .. but it's a small town. No one wants none of that fancy stuff

    If you want to smell like dryer sheets or fabric softener, wear CK One Summer 2009. The drydown smells exactly like it.

    This goes to show you what Marketing can do. It used to be smelling "dirty" was the focus of a sultry perfume...now it's smelling "clean", like detergent and fabric softener. We've washed away everything that makes us human and animals. Sad!

    I have -- I assume you mean to "hold" scents longer? Neutrogena unscented Body Oil works a lot better.

    Oh, yuck!

    I don't even use this godawful stuff in the laundry. Good ol' 20-mule-team Borax freshens clothing without that synthetic stink.

    And I have to ask -- she's about to go on a hot date? In that color? The one color that makes everybody look like death.

    There's no accounting for taste, they say.

    That made me laugh. She was so convinced and pleased with herself! Well, gosh... I seem to have left my perfume in the ladies restroom at the mall! No worries, I'll smell like Atlantic Tide!

    It reminds me of that movie (I think an old Eddie Murphy movie?), where he covered himself with the pine air freshener from the cab for an interview.

    You sure that wasn't Chris Farley in Tommy Boy? Dan Aykroyd called him out on it in the elevator.
