I love tide, it is the only detergent that actually cleans my family's clothes the first time. I usually get the original scent but I was curious about this scent since EVERYTHING was in this particular one. I smelled it in the bottle and it was lovely, but after it is done is a different story. I did a regular load and as I was transferring them into the dryer, I noticed it didn't smell like it did in the bottle... But not much of a difference. After it dried I took the load out and oh, my, gosh. It smelled like a porta potty cherry "freshener". My husband was revolted by the smell and refused to wear any clothes with this detergent, and I don't blame him. So I had to go out and get a new bottle of original scent and re-wash everything! I tossed out the entire bottle of this "spring and renewal". What a waste. I love my original tide and I will never buy a different scent again.

I bought this product because the store was out of regular Tide. I have used Tide for many years and this is the worst version of Tide I ever tried. It leaves clothes with a smell that is almost as heavy as a perfume.
I work in health care and people have chemical sensitivities so we are not allowed to use scented products. I have to buy another bottle of detergent (probably a different brand) to rewash these clothes. I would like a refund from Tide for a 170 oz bottle. This scent is too strong. Do not use this if you have any kind of chemical sensitivity. I am extremely disappointed with this Tide product.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by ITgeek Tide Plus Febreze Freshness Worst scent ever!
I recently broke both ankles and have had someone else do my shopping and laundry. I first noticed that my towels smelled like sports cream and I thought well maybe they mixed something with sports cream residue in with my towels. Then I had shirts that had that same odd nauseating smell. I had to find out what was happening to my laundry. I normally buy the largest bottle of Tide with Downy HE liquid from a warehouse club because it makes for less shopping trips and I have always liked it. Well I found that my caregiver had bought Tide with Febreze Freshness spring lavender HE Liquid because they did not have any of the Tide with Downy at the warehouse club. I am relieved that I have found the culprit that was make an already debilitated person smell and feel worse. It was like I was waking up in of tub of sports cream the smell is just unbearable. While relieved to know what was causing the terrible smell I wonder how in the world anyone could think that it smelled good or anything like spring or lavender. Very disappointed that I have to throw away such a large bottle of laundry detergent but I have not found anyone who likes the smell I can not even give it away.
Longtime disappointed Tide customer

I have used Tide detergent for many years (like over 20) and have always been happy with it until recently purchased the HE liquid with Febreze. The smell it leaves on my clothes is absolutely horrible... like a flowery chemical smell that is nauseating. I have changed my clothes, but the smell gets absorbed into my skin, so the only way to get rid of the smell is to shower and scrub it off.

I've been using free and clear detergents for a while now because I have sensitive skin. I didn't think I could use scented detergents. However, I really loved the smell of Tide with Febreze and found it in HE. I bought it on sale and thought I'd give it a try. It gave my clothes a finished "new" look, bright, without stains. And it smells great. It did not irritate my sensitive skin in any way, which is very really something because everything seems to. I have even used it on my babies clothes and it got out the tough stains from formula, etc. and has not bothered her skin. I really am glad I tried this stuff and am going to keep on using it.

I always use Tide brand detergents - one day the store was out of my usual type so I bought the Febreeze version. I walked around for a few days wondering what smelled - was it my co-workers? NO IT WAS ME - my clothes smell horrible. I'm about to throw out an almost full bottle since I can't stand the horrible smell enough to use the rest of it. Really, I'm not very picky about things, but this product is not usable.

This smelled great in the bottle but horrible when in the machine! I have used various liquid Tides for the past few years and suddenly started smelling a horrible sewer smell while washing. I figured it had something to do with my machine or pipes so I had a maintenance guy look at it and he couldn't find anything wrong. I ran bleach through, it vinegar through it and even the Tide washing machine cleaners through it and NOTHING made it go away. We were questioning if it was time to just get a new machine. As a last resort I tried a different detergent and low and behold, the smell was gone!! I don't know what it is about this particular style/scent but it was utterly horrible and made my whole house smell like a sewer. Will never use and again and I will question any other Tide products.
