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?

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.

Rated 3 out of 5 by OldLady Loved the smell of clean!!!
I have been using pinesol for many years. I particularly love the blue. However, the last time I purchased it I did not realize that pinesol had changed their formula for the scent. I was so disappointed. I do not like the new "sparking wave" smell of the blue pinesol. I loved my old scent. So I tried the original pinesol and was shocked to find out they had changed the scent of it also. It doesn't turn white when you pour it in like in the olden days and the scent is not near as strong as it use to be. Please consider changing back. When a product is already GREAT!!! It does not need to be improved upon. Thanks.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Eggy The TRUE Original Pine-Scented Pinesol
After purchasing the "new" Original Pinesol and suffering through a week of nauseating, lingering, cheap cologne scent, I immediately disposed of the remainder of the bottle and started looking for a new cleaner. Nothing beats the TRUE Original Pine-scented Pinesol so I purchased a case online through Pinesol's website and eagerly awaited its arrival. Yes, this is the real stuff! I cleaned my kitchen last night and it smelled fresh and piney, just like it's supposed to. This morning there was no lingering scent. This is why we buy Pinesol!! We want a clean, fresh scent that dissipates naturally, NOT a strong cologne scent that lingers. While I am disappointed that I can't buy the true pine-scented Pinesol in the stores, I am extremely grateful and happy that I can still buy it online. Thank you for bringing it back, and please, please, please, never stop making this TRUE Original Pine-scented Pinesol.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Ewwthatsmell Hate smell
My grandmother and my mom used to use this product. Since I've been married ans had kids the past 30 years I've used this product. I absolutely hate this smell now. I've purchased this with it saying original on it and it smells awful. Up until recently I was at least happy because I could buy walmart great value brand. I have to sit and open bottles of pine sol looking for the true smell but can't find it. I'm totally disheartened with not being able to find this product. I guess I'll go with Lysol products or water and vinegar. You have killed this product for me. If any readers know of a different company that has the smell of what pine sold used to smell like please leave a comment because all the bottles I've checked at store that say original don't smell like the good stuff.

Rated 1 out of 5 by sue4you why did you change the blue pinesol??
My sister and I clean houses and everyone loved the smell when we cleaned with the blue pinesol..then you changed it and it now is a different scent with flower on the bottle and smells horrible! Why did you change it? We have been going everywhere trying to find the old formula...it is either that or change brands. Very disappointed....

Rated 1 out of 5 by WANTMYPINESOLBACK So disappointed!
I'm sorry Pine Sol, but I am so disappointed that you changed the original scent of Pine Sol. I grew up smelling that amazing pine scent in my home. It's what my Mom used to clean our home....Years have gone by since I used Pine Sol cleaner but yet I still had the memory of the scent in my mind and couldn't wait to use it in my home. I couldn't wait to smell that amazing scent from my childhood years...My mom has passed away and I guess it was something that I was looking forward to experiencing again, the scent, you know,I'm sure I was looking forward to the smell to remind me of my Mom and my childhood days of Saturday cleaning day....unfortunately I was completely disappointed! Pine Sol Original Scent smells nothing like the original. It smells like a combination of Pine Sol/Lysol!!! PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE, go back to the original, Original Scent. It smelled so much better and it made your home smell so amazing! I would really hate to have to start buying X-tra Pine instead of Pine-Sol, but....X-tra Pine smells so much more like your original Pine-Sol I grew up with...Please change back...sometimes trying to move forward with the times doesn't make things better. Stick with what worked from the beginning!!! Thanks
