Well this one is certainly a new idea. Tide Total Care proclaims that it has a light cool cotton scent. I don't know that it's a cotton scent but I like the very light scent with a hint of clean. Priced about the same as the other liquid Tide soaps, I feel that this is a buy again soap and I would recommend it to others who do not like a strong scent in their clothes. Performance I actually liked this detergent and I felt that our clothes came out clean and fresh. which is really all that I look for in a detergent. I am not a fan of liquid soaps however this one is okay and I will undoubtedly buy this brand again, especially if it goes on sale or a coupon is available. . Scent Tide offers a lot of variety when it comes to laundry products and this one offers a clean light scent. They say it is like cotton but I am not sure that I would go that far but it turns out that this variety is one of my favorite and I would buy it again. It has just a light scent, nothing strong to identify a scent and certainly doesn't overpower.
