“ Brand: Comfort / Type: Fabric Conditioner / Category: Laundry „
I love my washing to smell nice and think there is nothing better than opening my drawers to get clothe out and them smelling gorgeous. I also think that laundry products are generally very expensive and only ever buy them when they are on offer so when there is a decent offer on I will buy a few.
This product is created by Comfort and generally I do love the comfort fabric conditioners, the bottle provides you will 21 washes worth if you use the recommended amount and generally a bottle costs between £2.15 and £2.75 depending on where you buy it. I bought this in Asda when they had one of their cleaning events on and it only cost £1 which is a bargain in my opinion along with the rest of the range that seemed to find their way into my trolley!
The products comes in a plastic bottle with a black plastic wrapper around it, the bottle is sturdy enough to hold the product but still quite soft. The bottle has a screw top cap on it which is also used for dosing the washing machine. On the front of the bottle there is a flowery design in yellow which stands out really well against the black.
On the back of the bottle it states "Experience the magic of twilight with new Comfort Twilight Sensations. Developed with a world famous perfume house to bring the luxury of fine fragrance to your clothes." You are given directions for use which are for a 6-7kg wash you should use 55ml of product which is a full capful and for a 4-5kg load you need 35mls which is just over half a capful. If you want to handwash with this then you need 18mls so just over 1/3 of a cap. Personally my washer holds 6kgs of washing but I use just over half a cap and it works perfectly.
The liquid inside the bottle is a pale cream in colour and smell absolutely gorgeous. The liquid is pretty runny so when you first start the bottle and it is full you can overdose the lid a bit too easily. The smell to me is strongly vanilla but also has a flowery scent to it, opening the washing machine after using this the smell is evident immediately. When drying the clothes on the airer or radiators the smells drifts around the house and the smell lasts ages. I've found that the smell can last a good week or so on towels and bedding in the airing cupboard which I was really impressed with.
This product is well worth a try if you haven't already, I wouldn't buy it at full price simply because laundry products seem to go on offer in one supermarket or another every few weeks. The smells is lovely, the clothes are left soft and the smell lasts ages, 5 stars out of 5 from me.
Doing the laundry is not exactly an exciting task, but there are certain things which can make it that little bit more enjoyable. For me, it's all about the different scents. I love using scented ironing water and choosing a new fabric conditioner can be just as fun as choosing a new perfume, and it's a lot cheaper! Comfort is a brand that I tend to favour for the simple reason of my mum always used to use it when I lived at home. I've used Comfort products for years since moving out on my own, and like to try out all the different varieties. I opted for this Comfort Concentrate as their Twilight Sensations range sounded rather glamorous for a laundry product!
Comfort Concentrated Fabric Conditioner can be bought from most good supermarkets and many high street discount stores. I picked up a 750ml bottle from Poundland, where of course it cost me just £1.00. This is a real bargain, especially for a concentrated product and this is the cheapest price that I've seen it available at so far.
Product description: "Experience the magic of twilight with new Comfort Twilight Sensations. Developed with a world famous perfume house to bring the luxury of fine fragrance to your clothes."
This fabric conditioner comes in an ordinary plastic bottle that has a screw top plastic lid. The bottle is covered with a fancy looking black wrapper, which although looks nice and appealing with a pretty floral design, is somewhat annoying as it obscures vision and you can't see how much is left inside the bottle. The lid works as a measuring device for dispensing the correct amount of fabric conditioner per wash. This is very handy, and it has a neat little lip inside the lid so that any drips or spills get caught and end up back in the bottle rather than all over the floor. The conditioner itself has a pale creamy colour and is easy to pour.
These days I always prefer to go for the more environmentally friendly products, and this concentrated fabric conditioner certainly fits the bill. Comfort Concentrate uses over 50% less packaging per wash compared to Comfort Regular, so not only are your clothes left feeling soft and smelling fresh, you're helping to care for the environment as well. This essentially means that less plastic is required for packaging and fewer lorries are required for transporting larger products.

Directions for use: For large loads or extra softness and freshness, 6-7kg = 55ml full cap. For normal loads, 4-5kg = 35ml, just over half full cap. For hand washing, 10L =18ml, a third of a cap. To Use: Dose straight into your washing machine drawer. Wash hands after use. Do not pour directly onto fabrics. Keep away from eyes. If product gets into eyes rinse thoroughly with water.
This is very simple to use, just stick it into the fabric conditioner section of the washing machine's drawer and away you go. Because it is a concentrated liquid you don't need to use a great deal of it per wash, and so the bottle can last for ages. The fragrance is also concentrated, and because you only need to use a maximum of one capful you get a lovely strong scent that really permeates the fabrics that you're washing, and the fragrance is where this fabric conditioner really stands out against the rest. It has a lovely sweet vanilla scent with rich floral tones. It is strongly fragranced and perfumes the whole house as I dry my washing inside during the bad weather. I love the wave of scent that is released upon opening the washing machine door after the cycle has finished running, as it is immediately noticeable and the scent stays around for some while afterwards. I must admit that the scent does seem to disappear after the clothes have been dried and stored away, but it is very strong and refreshes the fabric when my clothes are being washed. My clothes and other bits of laundry always come out of the wash looking fresh, clean and well cared for. This fabric conditioner does seem to help keep the fabrics soft and in good condition after washing.
I paid £1.00 for 750ml bottle of Comfort Concentrate fabric Conditioner, and it states on the bottle that this amount provides 21 washes. Seeing as I do only one or two loads of laundry per week, this size of bottle lasts me absolutely ages, and I only have to buy this type of product a few times a year. I think it is incredibly good value for money and does a wonderful job of refreshing and caring for my clothes as well as giving them a lovely fragrance. I would recommend this fabric conditioner to anyone and give it a well deserved 5 stars.
I have to admit I was initially attracted to this product by its very enchanting packaging, it is cleverly seductive. I also smell conditioners before I buy them, and try at least five or six! Bored with the scents of the usual conditioners I was hoping for something different. So I unscrewed the cap and suddenly my head was filled with a strange and very strong very sexy and sophisticated perfume. The experience was an olfactory funfair. It was not the scent that I associate with clothes conditioners, it is like its come from a perfumery. I don't usually spend so much money on a conditioner so I was hesitant to buy it but captured by its scent I dropped it in the shopping trolley.
The packaging says you don't need any more than one cap so I put one cap filled to the level in the washing machine. The clothes did smell perfumed but I think that one and a half cups would get a highly perfumed scent, but then again I do load the washing machine to the max, for a smaller wash one cup would be sufficient. However I can give you a tip, when I iron I use my water spray but I add a little conditioner to this, so the clothes keep their perfumed smell. What has impressed me the most about this conditioner is that today I ran out of hair conditioner, so I poured quite a bit of Comfort Vanilla & Black into a spray bottle with some water and sprayed it on my wet hair. My head smells beautiful anyone would think that it was from the use of real perfume or an expensive perfumed conditioner. For this reason I will be buying this product again!
My latest find was this fabric conditioner which was on offer in Tesco so I decided to give it a try., I was not overly impressed with the last one I tried in this new range but thought I would give this one a go to see if t was any better due to the low offer price. The one I chose was the Twilight Sensations Vanilla and Black Orchid fabric conditioner.
The fabric conditioner comes in a black plastic bottle which has the product name and Comfort logo on the front. There is a nice pretty picture of flowers in cream and yellow and a small pattern which continues to the top of the bottle. The back of the bottle is again black but there is a yellow section which has all the product information and directions for use on.
The top of the bottle is a black plastic lid which doubles up as the measuring and pouring cap.
~~USE AND RESULTS~~
Using the fabric conditioner is very simple and the way to do this is to pour the required amount into the measuring cap and then pour into the correct compartment on your washing machine. I would suggest rinsing the cap out after doing this so you don't get any of the conditioner running down the side of the bottle. The required amount for a large load of washing is 1 capful, a smaller load 2/3 capful and for a small load or hand washing them just 1/3 capful. I have found the stated amounts to be more than enough.
When I opened the bottle I was instantly able to smell the fragrance. I was light and not what I expected at all. I could smell the scent of vanilla and a hint of floral supposedly from the black orchids. I did not find this was too strong or feminine and thought it was a good mix of scents which was not too musky or suited for evening wear.
I washed my clothes in this, a mixture of mine, hubby's and the boys and whilst they were washing I was able to smell the scent from 2 rooms away which was nice as it was not overly strong. Once the clothes had been washed and then dried in the tumble dryer the fragrance was still very noticeable on the clothes and they smelt good. I would have liked more softness from the conditioner as they were not as soft as other brands but they were OK. The clothes once hung away in the wardrobe and then removed a few days later were still smelling of the scent and it was very good as it was just a hint which I could smell which meant I did not have to worry about hubby walking around smell like a vanilla lady all day.
The front of the bottle claims that this has 21 washes in, I can say that I had more than this out of my bottle and an just about to finish the bottle up on my 23rd load, this is with me using just under 1 capful for each load.
The bottle is made of 100% plastic so it is all recyclable, usually this means a rocket or space ship in my house!
The ingredients for the fabric conditioner for those allergy suffers or those wishing to know include:-
5-15% Cationic Surfactants, <5% Non-ionic surfactants, Perfume, Benzisothiazolinone, Benzyl Sailcylate, Butylphenyl Methylpropional, Citronellol, Coumarin, Hexyl Cinnamal, Limonene, Linalool
There are a few warnings on the bottle which are the basic ones, including keeping this away from babies and small children and do not get in eyes or drink the product.
~~PRICE AND AVAILABILITY~~
I bought my bottle from Tesco as it was on offer at just £1 per bottle. I felt this was a good price as it is nearly £2 when not on offer. This is available in all other supermarkets at around the same price.
I will recommend this product and I am giving it 4/5 stars. The smell is lovely and not too over powering but I would say it was more for the female market, it is alright to use on men's clothes but not the full stated dose. I think I may have given this the full 5 stars had the clothes been slightly softer.
