I love downy in my husbands clothes since helps get rid of any bad odors that sometimes detergent alone can't manage. I use it especially on his work clothes and leaves them softer, smelling nice, and clean. My mom used this and I just followed her recommendation. I recommend it too.

Dear P&G: Don't "fix" something not broken! The new scent of "April Fresh" under your new fabric "CONDITIONER" is so awful and atrocious! I washed all of my sweaters from winter and was air drying them and had to leave the room, close the door and open the windows. And after they were dry the scent lingered in my bedroom for DAYS. It gave me a headache. PLEASE - I have used your SOFTENER since I was born (40+ years!) Go back to the scent we all want back! I beg you!

Not April Fresh

By 

from undisclosed

Comments about Dooley Downy Fabric Softener:

Oh How I miss the days when Downy April Fresh Fabric softener smelled April fresh and not like you washed your clothes in a vat of perfume. I always purchased only Downy. Now, every once in a while I buy a bottle hoping that P&G cares about what their customers have to say and changed back to the old formula, but still not the case.

Hate the new smell!

By 

from undisclosed

Comments about Dooley Downy Fabric Softener:

Just did a load of laundry using a newly purchased bottle of April Fresh Downey and it made my clothes smell horrible! I went on line to see if it was just a bad batch but found out that the scent has been changed. My mother used Downey growing up and I always have as well. Loved the scent--but not anymore. I will be dumping this down the drain and looking for another brand that works well and has a pleasant scent. Please consider changing back to the old version!

Miss the old Downy AF...

By 

from Undisclosed

Comments about Dooley Downy Fabric Softener:

My mom used Downy April Fresh when I was little, and I did as an adult up until a few years ago. The downward progression of the scent is so disappointing. Now it's a plastic, generic, overpowering scent. When I was young (up until the early 2000s) it was such a lovely, soft, comforting scent. I just can't do it anymore. It may work just as well now at softening, but I cannot get past the stink. P&G, at least consider bringing back a "Vintage" version for us purists, would you? There are so many of us.

Comments about Dooley Downy Fabric Softener:

Recently there has been a lot of hype about beads and crystals for your wash, but it seems even if they claim to soften they just don't hold a candle to regular Downy. They may smell great, but I also want my clothes to feel fresh and mostly SOFT.

Chemical smell

By 

from Undisclosed

Comments about Dooley Downy Fabric Softener:

Please bring back the original April fresh Downy. I've noticed in the last year and a half that the fresh smell that's been a trademark of my clothes for the past 30 years is gone and now it's a horrible chemical smell. I've seen others complain about the same thing so why aren't you doing something not to lose customers? I quit buying Downy a few months ago but would love to come back...help!!!

Fabric protect stinks

By 

from Undisclosed

Comments about Dooley Downy Fabric Softener:

I took the time to register just to voice my opinion. The new scent on the bottles marked "Fabric Protect" is nasty, it smells cheap. After I use all the old product, with the "Surround Yourself With Softness" labeling, I'll probably switch to Suavitel. Why pay more to smell cheap?

What happen to APRIL FRESH SCENT?

By 

from Undisclosed

Comments about Dooley Downy Fabric Softener:

The new scent of Downy is horrible. I have been an avid Downy customer for over 30 years. I loved the April Fresh scent now its gone and replaced with some god awful scent. Will probably switch to Snuggles.

The new scent stinks!!!!

Comments about Dooley Downy Fabric Softener:

The new scent is horrible! I washed my sheets and now my entire bedroom is overpowered with an awful flowery smell! I`ve used this product all my life - and my mom did when I was a kid. Now I`m going to have to re-wash my sheets WITHOUT Downy to get that smell out. I`m going to seek a refund!

The New Scent is Awful!

By 

from Undisclosed

Comments about Dooley Downy Fabric Softener:

I have used Downy liquid April fresh for decades . I love the scent and softness it adds to my clothes. But this new scent with label that says" With Fabric Protect" is bad. I tried it and cannot stand the way my clothes smell. Please, please, change it back. I actually went to the store to find old Downy with the label "Surround Yourself with Softness" so I could stock up and hope you come to your senses. Please change it back.

What happened to April Fresh scent?

By 

from Undisclosed

Comments about Dooley Downy Fabric Softener:

My last bottle I bought smells horrible!! I went back and bought another bottle and same scent! I have used downy April fresh for the last 30 years and have always loved the smell! Now it smells like strong cologne/chemicals!! It's giving me a headache!! Please change back to the original April fresh scent!! After I rewash my clothes, I'm going out to buy another brand of fabric softener! I'm so sad. I've always loved Downy.

April Fresh Scent Change Is Horrible

By 

from Undisclosed

Comments about Dooley Downy Fabric Softener:

I have been using the liquid fabric softner for years. The last bottle I purchased smelled horrible. I thought I had purchased either a rancid bottle or a bottle that was accidentally filled with another downy fragrance. I went back to the store to purchase a different one, smelled numerous bottles only to discover they all smelled rancid. PLEASE change it back!!! I loved Downy but am afraid I am going be switching to a different product if this issue is not addressed. And from everything I have read online, looks like I am not the only one.
