It smells incredible! I ordered the clove-lavender-lemon because I was so intrigued by the idea of combining all those scents together. I could picture lemon-clove, lemon-lavender, but all three?!! The clove is a bit of top note, it's the first thing I smell when I walk into the laundry room. It's also doing a great job getting the laundry clean. I wish it imparted the smell into the clothes. I appreciate the compostable packaging, and I would buy it again in the future.
