Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by DummyWasher Poorly designed packaging
Trying to open the Ultra Tide box put me off from using the product! The slits on top were red herrings and don't do a thing! Disappointing design.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by brehsug It makes me wanna hurl!
I've always used Tide Original powder but hadn't used it in awhile due to financial constraints. Recently splurged on a box of Tide only to find that the scent has been changed to some a heavy musky odor that burns my nose and doesn't smell clean and fresh like it used to! The smell was so repulsive that I had to re-wash my laundry with another brand of detergent!
I really wish P&G would bring back the PREVIOUS scent in Original Tide Powder, the one that I, and everyone I know loved! Not this terrible scent that literally makes me wanna hurl.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by CgCJK This new scent is AWFUL
It's like stepping into an 80s nightclub -- the overwhelming perfume will make your eyes water. I use the liquid HE detergent, always Original Scent, and didn't realize the scent had been changed. I've seen in other reviews that Mountain Spring is the old Original (yeah, THAT'S not confusing!), so I will look for that. BUT I will smell it in the store first. P&G -- you know better than this. Don't slap an Original label on something you've changed. At LEAST say "New Scent" on the bottle!

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by NowFormerTideUser You changed ORIGINAL?!? Seriously??
Ultra Tide Original has been changed for the worse. DO NOT buy this product unless you want to waste money. I bought a huge box thinking it was the same as it had been for 25+ years and for some reason, they decided to change the smell to something so strong, that I had to throw it away. I smelled it all over my house and it wasn't pleasant. I then had to rewash my clothes in an old small box I had on hand for travel because I couldn't wear them.
P&G really messed up on this one.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Kitty90905 New formula stinks! literally!
Ive been a loyal Tide customer for 20+ years. Its the only brand I would ever buy.
The scent of the new Original is not the same! Ive read customer support response, suggesting to try Mountain Spring scent, as it smells like the old original. But that scent doesn't come in HE? Why doesn't it?
Ive managed to find 2 small bottles of the old formula at a local store, but after theyre finished, I'll have to find a new detergent/
I really hope that P&G listens to all of the negative feedback from their customers!

The fact that Tide (P&G) updated the scent in this product is enough to be troubling all by itself!
But adding insult to injury by not communicating this with your consumers is just poor business!
The fact that the box still says "ORIGINAL SCENT" when it's not is VERY misleading.
I called Tide (P&G) today and requested a refund for this product. I would have brought it back to the store, but I already emptied it into the plastic detergent bin we keep in the laundry room and tossed the box.
They are issuing a prepaid Visa card in the full amount. However, that doesn't take away from the fact that they are promoting this product as the "original scent" when it's not.
I encourage everyone else who is not happy with this scent change to call in (1-800-879-8433) and get a refund, too!

I just washed my first load of towels with the new "original" Ultra Tide. I'm putting it through an extra rinse in hopes of removing the strong, offensive scent that is left in them. I have been a loyal Tide customer for 50 years. I am so disappointed that a great product has been ruined. Please bring back the real original.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Adam Tide Original Scent changed and ruined
Tide has been used in our family since I was very young (so well over 30 years). The scent of Tide Original Powder has always been soft, almost powdery and very clean. I love it, my family loves it. It seems P & G on 07/01/2014 decided to change the scent of Tide Original Powder (he and non-he). I just cannot understand why! First April Fresh Downy softener was ruined, and now my beloved Tide Powder. So sad!!!
