What makes a great laundry scent?

While doing laundry may be a chore, getting to enjoy the fragrance of freshly washed clothes can be a reward in itself! But which scents are best suited for products like laundry detergent? After all, bakery fragrances like Baked Apple Pie make delightful Scentsy Bars — but can make clothes smell like dessert got mixed in with the wash. Here’s what the fragrance experts at Scentsy look for when scenting our Laundry products:

Fresh air

Ultimately, the whole point of doing laundry is to freshen up your clothes — so we look for fragrances that lean into this theme. Light, airy notes like fresh-cut greens and clear coral waters are common among the entire lineup of Scentsy Laundry products. These crisp, clean scents pair especially well with the powerful 6-enzime formula that Scentsy Laundry Liquid uses to fight stains!

Fruit forward

For those who prefer sweetly scented laundry, fruity fragrances can pack a punch! Sun-sweetened dark berries and peaches may not be the first notes people think of when imagining laundry fragrance — which is what makes them a refreshing choice for any fabric. In fact, Scentsy Fresh Fabric Spray can bring these berry fun fragrances to carpets, upholstery, curtains and more!

Flower power

With an airy sweetness that naturally complements clean laundry, floral notes strike a vibrant middle ground between fresh scents and fruity aromas. From orange flower and violets to magnolias and honeysuckle, there’s a veritable bouquet of fragrant possibilities to choose from. Scentsy Dryer Disks are the perfect way to enjoy these floral notes in full bloom, fresh out of the dryer!

Full-cycle fragrance

Whether you love fresh, fruity or floral laundry fragrances, you want your favorite scents to last! Scentsy Laundry products are designed with fragrance longevity in mind and provide the best results when they work together. From Scentsy Washer Whiffs and Laundry Liquid to Scent Soft Fabric Softeners and Dryer Disks, you can infuse your clothes with great fragrance at every step of the wash cycle. Best of all, you can bundle Scentsy Laundry products for great savings!

    I exclusively use Lavender Cotton in our bedroom, so I launder our bed linens in it, too. My clothes get bathed in Coral Waters because it makes me happy, and towels get laundered in Clothesline. No one ever told me I could only pick one! 😉😁
