Odour performance of detergents

Differentiation is growing in the field of detergents – with scent being one of the key factors that can set one product apart from the rest in the eyes (and nose) of the consumer.

Shoppers are paying more attention than ever to the wide range of detergent scents available – and selecting a favourite is often central to the purchasing decision. It is crucial, therefore, for anyone responsible for detergent design, manufacture or marketing to know how the scent of the detergent itself, as well as the scent of the washed laundry, is perceived by consumers.
