Rated 5 out of 5 by Southern Lady Love the new scent
Was looking to replace a bottle of another favorite cleaner, but could not find it at my favorite box store so I decided to purchase a bottle of original scent pine-sol. Imagine my delight when I went to clean and discovered an awesome new scent. I love this!. It made me want to clean my whole house just to have it smell nice. I will be buying this product from now on. Good work people.

Rated 2 out of 5 by FamilyTraditions The only original Pine-sol, not the new longer lasting scent, was a true long lasting pine scent that had deep cleaning features.
I can remember my mother cleaning with Pine-sol and the smell of clean filled the entire house and would last for quite sometimes. Pine-sol became one of our family traditions that have been passed from generation to generation- three generations now. Now that you've changed from the original to the new longer lasting scent I can't pass that tradition on because it's not the original. The new scent is not a bad scent just not the scent that reminds me of home and family traditions. I realize that everything must change and everything has a season. I'm saddened to see the season of the original Pine-sol come to an end. Do you think Pine-sol, the original can make a comeback for those who grew up with it? Or be offered in addition to the new longer lasting scent for those who like the new scent?

Rated 1 out of 5 by Johhny New Scent is Disgusting
As someone who has used or been around someone who used Pine Sol for decades I was absolutely disgusted when I bought a new bottle (after having depleted a bulk purchase of Pine Sol several years ago) and found that the original pine scent was gone. The old Pine Sol always made me feel like the room was clean and the smell lasted for a long time. Scents are very evocative and the original scent brought back memories from childhood when my mother cleaned with Pine Sol and that smell meant things were clean. Does anyone know if there is another product that would smell like the original Pine Sol?

Rated 1 out of 5 by cleanfreak New scent is horrible!
I used up an old bottle of original Pine Sol the other day and asked my husband to buy more while he was running errands. Little did I know the formula has changed ... and unfortunately, not for the better. The new scent smells nothing like pine. It has a fragrance more like cheap men's cologne or citronella that immediately resulted in a headache and nausea. I had to open a window and walk outside to keep from getting sick. I'd try one of the other fragrances but prefer the clean smell of natural pine. In addition, the others do not appear to have the same antibacterial qualities. If pine oil is too expensive, please seek other sources ... and/or increase the price ... and/or find a way to make one of the other popular scents antibacterial. Sorry, but the "new" Pine Sol is truly awful.

I am very unhappy with my recent purchase on pine sol. I love using pine sol, but I am reconsidering using your brand. I am uninterested in the other fragrances. This new scent has left my friends, and family lightheaded. I want the old scent back, or at least know as a Canadian where I can get it from.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Kiddo My Husband Didn't Want Baby Breathing In New "Fragrance"!!!
I am a military wife who recently moved to an area with tall pines throughout our neighborhood. I thought picking up a bottle of Pine-Sol and bringing the pine oil smell into our home would be very pleasant. This new product you are selling has missed the mark. As I began using it, it quickly occurred to me that it didn't smell natural or fresh at all. My husband was playing with our baby in an adjoining room, and he opened an outside door to let fresh air inside and asked me to stop. He was worried about myself or the baby breathing in this new fragrance. He is not usually the type to notice or worry about these sort of things! We are extremely disappointed in this product, and will be warning our family and friends.

I fell in love with the Sparkling Wave Pine Sol. But the last bottle I bought has a new scent that smells horrible. It's not refreshing as the original. I will no longer buy Pine Sol products. I see they have changed all of the fragrances that no one likes. What gives?? Is there anyplace you can still buy the original and new scent for those who prefer the original scent? You are going to lose a lot of $$ and customers. OUCH

I AM SO VERY DISAPPOINTED WITH THE NEW LONG LASTING
SCENT. A YEAR AGO I WENT TO HOME DEPOT AND THEY HAD A CASE OF THE ORIGINAL PINE SOL LEFT. I PURCHASED THE ENTIRE CASE AND USED IT VERY SCARCELY. I HAD TO GIVE UP SEVERAL BOTTLES TO MY MOM WHICH I DIDN'T MIND BUT I WAS PROTECTING THEM FROM ANYONE ELSE USING THEM..LOL..
AFTER I REALIZED YOU GUYS STOP MAKING THE ORIGINAL PINE SOL I WAS SO ANGRY AND SO VERY DISAPPOINTED. I LITERALLY PRAYED AND ASK GOD TO HAVE YOU GUYS BRING IT BACK. BECAUSE THE NEW LONG LASTING , I'M SORRY TO SAY, IT LITERALLY SMELLS LIKE SOME LOUD CHEAP MEN COLOGNE FROM THE 70's ABSOLUTELY HORRIBLE.
I UNDERSTAND THE SUPPLY AND DEMAND ISSUE WITH THE PINE OIL, HOWEVER I THINK ALL OF US WHO LOVED THE TRUE ORIGINAL SMELL WOULD RATHER PAY EXTRA FOR WHAT WE LOVE THAN TO PAY FOR SOMETHING THAT WE DON'T, QUOTE , UNQUOTE THE NEW LONG LASTING SCENT.
I THINK FOR MANY AND MOST OF US WHO HAVE A PROBLEM WITH THE NEW LONG LASTING SCENT, THAT ITS PROBABLY NEVER BEEN ABOUT THE COST FOR US.. ITS THE SMELL OF THE PRODUCT AND HOW WELL IT CLEANED AND MADE YOUR HOME SMELL SO PINE FRESH.
I COULD BE WRONG, BUT IVE BEEN IN BUSINESS FOR OVER 30 YEARS AND BEFORE I WOULD HAVE CHANGED A PRODUCT THAT HAS BEEN WORKING FOR ME AND GIVEN ME THE GOOD REPUTATION I HAVE, I WOULD HAVE TOOK A MAJOR SURVEY AND INFORMED MY FAITHFUL CUSTOMERS OF THE SUPPLY AND DEMAND ISSUE WITH THE PINE OIL. I WOULD HAVE TESTED THE PRODUCT ON THE MARKET FOR SEVERAL MONTHS BEFORE BLATANTLY JUST SWITCHING OVER TO THE NEW STUFF.
I THEN WOULD FIRST IT MAKES MORE SENSE TO RAISE THE PRICE THAN AND KEEP YOUR CUSTOMERS THAN TO CHANGE THE PRODUCT AND LOSE FAITHFULLY, LOYAL CUSTOMERS WHO HAVE BEEN BUYING YOUR PRODUCT FOR OF 20, 30 40 YEARS.
