Comfort Launches Vanilla & Gold Iris Review

Do you sniff fabric conditioners in the shops, I am hoping there are a few more sad people like me. 

If not please do not have me committed, I like to "smell before they sell" I like new fragrances and especially like to try the limited editions.

 I tend to get immune to a scent if I have used it for a while, so I do like to make a change so I can smell it on bedding and towels as they come out of the washing machine and when I open drawers.

Comfort have released a Christmas pack  the bottle is very festive,  it looks like a gift with red and gold wrapping. Its a big bottle with 34 washes, so will last a while.

I of course had to do my first sniff, its one I would have sniffed in store and and bought.  However Comfort kindly sent (or should that say 'scent'') me a bottle.

Its Vanilla and Gold Iris, it's a  lovely light fragrance, not sure I could tell you if it does smell like gold irises, I can say it has a  light floral scent, laced with the sweet vanilla. 

I got to decide very quickly whether I really liked the scent, Early in the morning and possibly still bleary eyed I decided to take a photo they always look so organised, but I will confess its chaos behind the scenes.

I managed to knock the cap over twice,  Granny calling me, phone ringing, son making a pack up for work. I moved too fast and caught my sleeve on the cap.  I mopped up and the fragrance was definitely given the full workout,  luckily I like it as it lingered all morning, may have to do this again!!!

This Limited-Edition fabric conditioner is designed by fragrance experts to give a 100% more fragrance in every drop and there is definitely a more noticeable smell in the airing cupboard, in the ironing pile and wherever I manage to spill it next!

You need to hurry to try this as its only available from mid-October until Christmas at supermarkets 

RRP £3.55

    1. Oh good glad I am amongst 'normal' sniffers. Thanks for popping by.

  2. I really like the smell of Comfort, but whenever I have used it, I have always had some kind of reaction to it which is a real shame x

  3. Aww that is a pain, I am like that with some shampoos and I love the scents.

  4. I'm like Rachel. I can't use Lenor or Asda's own brand as I have a reaction to it and I can't use Comfort as Nathan has a reaction to it. I gave up after the smell of another own brand one made me feel sick lol but I do miss my comfort :(

  5. I love to smell before you buy too! I love the sound of this! I generally use Comfort as I love their fragrances. Shall look out for this! Thank you!

  6. I definitely like to smell conditioners before buying - don't want to smell of something you don't like.

  7. I don't smell before I buy, I have never thought about doing it! perhaps I should

  8. I don't smell before I buy, mostly because I can't use the conditioners, they give me a bad reaction. But if I could I'd love one that smells of vanilla!

  9. your not the only to smell before buying hehehehe has to be a nice smell before i buy it i dont want to smell horrible
