    Scented fabric. What do you think?

    100% cotton
    designed by Camelot Design Studio
    scent remains up to 30 washings
    available in apple, lemon zest, milk & honey, peach, pineapple coconut, pink sugar, strawberry, & watermelon. (nope...don't know what pink sugar actually smells like).
    advertised as good for for quilting, aprons, & home décor.
    just like scratch 'n sniff....sort of.

    Would you try it?

    FYI: I have never seen or smelled this. Just found it online.

    I have asthma, so this would not be for me. Also, if you used it in something you'd want to gift someone, they might also have a reaction to smells. I like my fabric "plain," but if you think you'd enjoy this (it is a novel idea), go for it, and enjoy!

    No thanks. There are so many fake scents that are just ....well....gag.

    I have problems with scents triggering migraines, so I'm another that would not be interested.

    I would not try it, or go anywhere near it. I would hope to not have someone make me a gift with it.
    many people are very sensitive to fragrances, I think warnings would need to be printed all over it.

    I , for one, think it might be fun. I can’t do parfumes either, I had to stop wearing them years ago, but I do like some scented soaps and things. My hubby said he thought it would be fun for doll clothes. Interesting thought.

    No, never. Not only would I not buy it, I could not even shop in a quilt store that stocks it. Very bad idea.
    A quilt is like a good life. It's full of mistakes, but, in the end, it looks pretty good.

    I wouldn't buy it. There are too many conficting scents in household products for my taste as it is. I wouldn't want to add any more.

    I too would say "no thanks". Too many chemicals out there already.

    Not for me. I use unscented detergent and dryer sheets because I dislike scented linens and clothes.

    I’m another one who can’t tolerate scents... so no.

    Not only would the scents bother me but I wonder what they would do to the fabric. Some antique fabrics disintegrate over time because of the dyes and processes used to make them and I wonder if fabrics treated with scents may do the same thing.

    I like scents, but I don't like paying for something that doesn't last.

    I’m trying to imagine what it would be like to work with... surely your hands would end up smelling in a very concentrated way (and maybe even your tools?) More than anything that’s what would put me off

    I love fragrances and I love the smell of clean fabric however I’d like to be in control of how it’s scented on my end with detergents, softeners and ironing sprays.

    I’m not averse to scented products usually, but I wouldn’t buy it. Fabric isn’t Kent to be scented. If I want it to smell, I’ll use fabric softener.

    I can only wonder what the chemicals in the fabric would do to it over the years.

    No, I'm sure that the "scents" are full of chemicals. I make all my own body and cleaning products using essential oils
    and other natural products. I don't even buy laundry detergent.

    Last time I bought stamps they offered me scented stamps, I think they were popsicle fragrances, orang lemon and lime. Regretted buying them......the poor postman having a bag full of those scents.

    I think it's a fun idea, but I probably would not purchase it either. Since I prefer to make scrappies, most of my fabrics sit around for a long time, so I doubt the scent would last until I used up every last scrap. Plus, I wouldn't want all the neighboring fabrics to end up scented.

    I wouldn't buy it. The odors would possibly stay for some time and give the other fabrics the smell. Just my thoughts.
