Customer Reviews for Ultra Downy® April Fresh Liquid
I just used the new April fresh fabric "conditioner" that has replaced your famous April fresh fabric softener. I don't know what you did to the scent, but it is VERY unpleasant. I feel like my clothes need to be rewashed and the smell is so strong that it seems it will be difficult to get the scent out even then. The new scent reminds me of mosquito spray. I really don't like it! I will be looking for a new brand of fabric softener, unless you can bring back the original scent. I hope you can, because it is what has made your success in my opinion. I've been a loyal Downy user for many years. So sorry to lose that great scent.
Downy April Fresh scent has changed for the worse.
October 26, 2015
The new scent of Downy April Fresh is unpleasant. The original scent was remarkable and recognizable. Everyone remarked on how fresh my laundry room and laundry smelled. Sadly I am in search of a substitute and disposed of the bottle I just purchased.
We have only every used the original April Fresh Downy. Picked up the bottle yesterday, used it today and thought maybe I grabbed the wrong brand. It smells horrible. I am now rewashing my load of laundry with the hopes that the strong perfume scent will come out. What a disappointment.
I have a very sensitive sense of smell, and your April Fresh scent was the ONLY one I could use. When I caught the odor of the bottle of Downy I bought I thought I had mistakenly picked up the wrong scent. It is sharp and putrid and now is permeating thru my house. If I could return it, I would!!! I now have to go out and find another brand. PLEASE CHANGE THE SCENT BACK!!!!
PLEASE RETURN THE ORIGANAL SCENT BACK TO APRIL FRESH THE NEW SCENT SMELLS NOTHING LIKE THE OLD SCENT AND IS A VERY HARSH SCENT, IM A FAITHFUL CUSTOMER FOR MANY YEARS. WHEN I PURCHASE THIS PRODUCT I BUY OUT THE WHOLE SHELVE OF THEM . PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE BRING BACK THE OLD SCENT!!!!!!
I've been a Downy user for 20 years and with my latest bottle of April Fresh with Fabric Protection I am very disappointed with the scent. It does not smell the same as it has for years. It has a strong perfumey smell that is not pleasant and unfortunately I will no longer be using it. Guess I have to find a new fabric softener.
I've been using Downy for years and years...it's the ONLY fabric softener I have used! UNTIL NOW!! I bought Downy a few days ago...only looked for the April Fresh scent listed on it...washed my clothes, walked into my laundry room and couldn't believe the SMELL ...actually it smelled like old clothes that had been sitting around...or maybe a generic detergent! I examined the clothes...smelled my Cheer bottle...smelled the Downy and then knew what was wrong...looked at the label and saw FABRIC PROTECT! omg...it's HORRIBLE and CERTAINLY NOT APRIL FRESH! YOU GUYS MESSED UP WHEN YOU ADDED "PEARLS" a few years ago...but NOW YOU'VE LOST A CUSTOMER!!! (and by the looks of things, more than `1 ) It wasn't broke...why did you mess it up??? Unless you bring back the original/or even latest Downy, I won't be buying anymore! In fact, I'm hoping I'll be able to get my money back...going back to the store tomorrow!! THE SMELL OF THIS IS HORRIBLE....WHAT WERE YOU PEOPLE THINKING?? AND if you wash clothes properly, that will protect them enough...WE DON'T NEED YOU PROTECTING OUR CLOTHES!!!! Wondering if the dryer sheets are messed up, also??? LOOKING FOR ANOTHER FABRIC SOFTENER PRONTO!!!!
The revised scent of April Fresh Downy has a very chemical smell and is nothing like the original scent. Very disappointed, especially after growing up with this softener and raising my family with it. Both of my grown daughters are disappointed as well. We will be looking at products other than Procter and Gamble. Please bring back the original April Fresh scent!
I have been using Downy April Fresh for as long as I have been doing laundry. I love the fresh smell of our clothes from using Downy. A few years ago, I was disappointed when the scent pearls were added and ruined the wonderful smell. Now, I just bought a new bottle of Downy with the new "fabric protect". After washing my first load of laundry I knew right away something was not right! The scent is not the same. It's very strong and unpleasant. I want the normal Downy April Fresh back! My clothes don't smell good anymore! Why change the scent of something that everyone loves so much?
I was out of my favorite blue top downy so I went to my local market and sure enough they were out too! They did have the April fresh pink top downy... So what the heck I gave it a try. I was pleasantly surprised! It's not too flowery smelling which I was afraid of. It smelt my whole house up and everyone who came in wanted to know what it was. I thought I was going to have to beat them off with a stick once the laundry was done.
Downy April Fresh has always been my softener for my clothes. I couldn't imagine using anything else. My grandson says it smells like home. I've tried other products many years ago and once was enough. I can't remember how long I've used downy but 30 years would be my guess. I use liquid in my washer and when I want to freshen pillows I toss a dryer sheet into the dryer and they come out smelling fresh. Thanks for a great product. And with a teenager grandson in my home I could use a new washer and dryer.
Value for money... Best buy ever... I am a consistent consumer of Downy products.. I am contented and satisfied of this product. I don't even iron our clothes, that means that it really soften our clothes and it smells great as well. it can help me to conserve electricity and of course it was a big help for me to lessen my household chores, i have more time to bond with my family.
The smell of Downy is incredible! When I am switching my clothes from the washer to the dryer, I stop and smell each article of clothing. I love the smell of clean clothes! When I am at work, my coworkers will always comment on how great my clothes smell!
