“ Brand: Comfort / Type: Fabric Conditioner / Category: Laundry „
Before I get stuck into writing this review I must take a minute to point out that I am simply reviewing Comfort Passion Flower and not Passion Flower and Ylang Ylang its just that when I requested a different link Dooyoo told me to pop my review here so here I am!
I am a mad washer. I am really fussy and wash every single day without fail. No matter what washing powder/liquid or whatever I use I always use a fabric conditioner/softener though usually I opt for Lenor as I really love the fragrances of most of them and I highly regard the brand.
However my recent purchase was 750ml bottle of this which is meant to provide us with 21 washes for £1.80 in my local Asda store.
The fabric softener comes in a see through plastic and slightly curvy bottle with a purple twist on/off cap to the top of it which not only acts as a lid but can also be used to measure out the softener if you want to. On the front of the bottle there is a picture of a passion flower on there and we are told that it is 'Lasting Freshness' Comfort Concentrate 'Passion Flower' then on the back of the bottle we are told a bit about the product and how to use it, the size is stated (as I have listed already) and contact details for Unilever (the manufacturer of the product) are given. This is a nice enough looking bottle that gives off the impression in its style thats its good quality and its informative enough too.
Well the liquid is rather thin, lilac and creamy looking and it has a wonderfu;, rich and not too sweet floral fragrance to it. To me the fragrance of this is rather exotic and uplifting and I really do like it very much indeed!
On the back of the bottle measurements are given and shown via diagrams on how much to use depending on your washing load. As a guide though we are told to fill the given cap to the brim for heavy loads and for extra softness and freshness, for normal loads to use just half a capful and for handwashing to use quite a lot less than half a capful. like I say on the back of the bottle there are diagrams that show clearly how to use this.
I simply fill up my fabric softener drawer on my machine as I always have a full load anyway!
I absoloutely love this product. It rinses out of my fabrics easily, leaving no feeling of residue behind itself and it leaves my fabrics smelling fresh for well over a week as well when stored. I use this on all my clothes and bedding etc and have been pleased with how much easier it is to iron things after using this and that fabrics feel really refreshed and soft to the touch. I wash my bedding often but after 3 days my pillows still smell amazing which is so comforting and homely and all in all I really do rate this one highly!
I can't wait to try out other Comfort fabric softeners now!
Available in all good supermarkets etc!

We have used Pure Comfort Fabric Conditioner in our house for a long time. It comes in a 750ml sturdy plastic bottle with a twist off cap that also acts up as a dispensing tool, which I personally find a very useful thing to have. For this amount of fabric conditioner we paid just over £1 (but it was on offer at the time at Asda).
It smells gorgeous as soon as you take off the lid and there is a very strong smell of fresh flowers, and you can really detect hte passion flower and smell of ylang ylang. Some may find it too strong, but we actually really love it - a lot! It is not too strong though and not at all sickly.
It is light lilac in colour and the Comfort logo emblazoned on the front. The liquid is quite heavily perfumed so you only need to use a little bit as it is very strong. It is also quite thick in consistency I feel, more so than I had thought it might have been.
It makes all of our laundry feel superbly soft and smelling fresh even a long time after it has been dried and aired and put away in cupboards and drawers - its ability for making a long lasting fresh fragrance is very impressive.
It is very kind to the skin as well and out little lad suffers from excema but this does not irritate his skin at all as some of the other fabric conditioners can do. It makes towels soft and fresh and a treat to use after a bath or a shower and not at all scratchy or uncomfortable.
This size bottle will give you up to many washes and is worth every penny but I think you can also buy the smaller sized bottles too but personally I go for the larger one as I always feel it is far more cost effective.
Recommended by us as a family.

I love fabric softeners and I always add some to each and every wash I do; simply because I like the added softness on my laundry and the fact that the fabric softeners fragrance my laundry too. I usually do two or three separate washes per day, which is understandable considering there are three kids and two adults in our house hold, not to mention 2 dogs and 2 cats that are just as messy as the kids. On average I could easily polish off 2 full bottles of fabric softener in 10 days or so, I like to use different fragranced fabric softeners regularly; usually I purchase 2 bottles of fabric softener per week to cope with the massive amounts of washing I tend to do daily. When I go to Tesco's I just pick out two different fabric softeners, I don't bother which brand I choose because I think that most of them are the same apart from the fragrance. Sometimes I'll just choose a bottle simply because I like the colour or design of the bottle.
A few weeks ago Tesco's had a special offer on their Comfort Concentrated Fabric Softeners, you were getting two 750ml bottles for £2.00 there were a few different fragrances to choose from so I purchased one of each fragrance in the range so I had a plentiful supply of fabric softeners. Normally a 750ml bottle of Comfort Concentrated Fabric Softener will set you back around £1.75 in Tesco's, however the price will vary depending on where you purchase it from as different stores and supermarkets have different prices. In some stores you may be able to get this for £0.99 per bottle, so it is sometimes beneficial to shop around before you purchase. In each 750ml bottle of Comfort Concentrated you can expect to get 20 separate washes, if you use the recommended amount per wash.
Comfort Concentrated Passion Flower and Ylang Ylang Fabric Softener is supplied in a clear plastic bottle which is tear shaped. The bottle isn't too big as it easily fits into the bottom shelf of my cupboard under the sink. As previously mentioned the bottle is made of a clear plastic, I quite like this element as you can see the lovely creamy violet coloured fabric softener through the bottle, which is quite useful as you can easily see how much of the fabric conditioner is remaining inside the bottle at a glance. On top of the bottle of fabric conditioner there is a sturdy lilac coloured plastic lid which fits fairly securely as it is a screw on and off lid. The lid on the bottle also acts as a measuring guide, so you know exactly how much of the fabric softener to add to each wash you do. On the back of the bottle there is a list of ingredients and of course instructions on how to use the fabric softener.
Using the product is really easy, all you have to do is take the cap off the bottle and fill it with the fabric softener and then pour it into the correct compartment on your washing machine. I pour mines into the middle compartment in the washing machine drawer, other washing machines might be different and you might need to pour it into a different compartment in your drawer. As I stated above it is recommended that you use one capful of the fabric softener per wash; but I never measure it out, I just open the bottle and pout some of the liquid into the compartment in my washing machine, it's a far quicker method than measuring it out especially if you're always rushing about like me.
Before I used the Passion Flower and Ylang Ylang Fabric Softener I had to have a sniff of it before I added it to my laundry, just in case I found the scent far too floral and overpowering. Even although the scent of the fabric softener was quite strong it wasn't too floral as there was a nice sweet and uplifting aroma accompanying the floral fragrance. I knew that the fabric softener would have a strong aroma before I added it to the laundry, the reason the fabric softener is as strong at first is because it is concentrated; the scent will get diluted in the washing cycle and be less pungent.
As soon as your washing is finished and you open the door you can immediately smell the fragrance of the fabric softener. It is not too overpowering but it is slightly stronger than most of the other Lenor or Comfort concentrated fabric softeners I have used in the past. Even when the clothes are dried outside the fresh air makes the laundry smell so much nicer and the scent is still really vibrant and floral, I think that the fresh air always makes your laundry smell better. Even when the laundry is dried in the tumble dryer or on the radiators the clothes still have a really fresh, vibrant and floral smell and of course the clothes feel really soft to the touch; especially towels they are really fluffy and cotton soft. Most of the time towels are only really fluffy and soft if you dry them in the tumble dryer, but I hung them outside in the washing line to dry and they felt as soft as they do when they are dried in the tumble dryer. I really love the Comfort Concentrated range of fabric softeners because I find that they have nicer scents and they leave the laundry feeling softer than other leading brands of Fabric Softeners.
I absolutely love the fragrance from the Passion Flower and Ylang Ylang fabric softener mainly because it has a lovely sweet floral fragrance. Ylang Ylang is the most predominant scent in the fabric conditioner as it has a really sweet, uplifting floral aroma which smells quite exotic. The combination of the Ylang Ylang and Passion flower produce a gorgeous scent which isn't too feminine. My husband hasn't complained of the scent on his clothes when I have been using this so it mustn't be too floral or feminine.
The smell of the fabric softener lingers on your clothes for a while after you have washed them, I would say that the scent from the fabric softener lingers on the clothes and bedding for well over a fortnight after you have initially washed them which is really good considering most other fabric softeners only leave your clothes scented for a short while before the fragrance fades away. What I liked best about this fabric softener is the fact that the fragrance is a lot stronger than most and it lingers on your clothes for a long time, as soon as you open a wardrobe or a drawer all you can smell is the gorgeous scent of Passion Flower and Ylang Ylang filling the room.
None of the kids or my husband or I have suffered any kind of reaction from using this product so it is kind to our skin as well. I think that the product is great value for money and one which I will continue to purchase and use regularly. You can purchase the Comfort Concentrated range of fabric softeners from most supermarkets or smaller retailers although the price may vary depending on where you purchase it from. I purchased my 750ml bottle from Tesco for the small price of £1.00 as it was two bottles for £2.00. The recommended retail price of the fabric softener is around the £1.75-£2.00 price range. Typically a 750ml bottle of Comfort Concentrated Passion Flower and Ylang Ylang Fabric Softener will last you 20 washes providing you stick to the recommended one capful per wash. However if you are like me and just pour it into the drawer without measuring then you may find you get less washes per bottle.
You can also purchase 1.5 litre bottles of comfort concentrated. You can expect to pay in the region of £3.28 per 1.5 litre bottle and get approximately 40 washes from the larger sized bottle. There are many other different fragrances in the Comfort Concentrated range, for more information on the different fragrances or different products produced by Unilever (Comfort) please have a look at the following website.

My wife always likes to use a fabric conditioner when she does the laundry and although she has bought the lower brands from supermarkets to try a few times she has always gone back to using a branded one, and usually stocks the laundry cupboard when they are on special offer.
This one was on offer recently from Tesco and it was priced at only £1.04p which is extremely good value as the usual price is around £1.94p.
It comes in a transparent bottle with a purple screw off cap, once opened you can immediately smell the fresh fragrance of the conditioner.
The conditioner is very thick purple liquid and very soft and it smells absolutely lovely and the bottle is designed to last 21 washes but that depends on how much you use, my wife always puts a little extra in the compartment for the extra smell but it is concentrated so a capful is perfectly fine to use.
When the laundry has been washed and taken out of the machine you can clearly smell the fragrance immediately and the smell lasts for a very long time.
I like to smell fresh shirts and jeans when I get dressed and you just cannot beat fresh clean clothes and when you get into bed, the sheets make a better nights sleep for me when they smell nice.
The towels and clothing are nice and soft when they are dry and my wife sometimes does hand washing and places a little in a bowl and soaks them for awhile and rinses them and they are just as soft as when used in a machine.
My wife sometimes puts a little on a cloth and wipes the radiators with it and when they are switched on, it give off the fragrance and the room smells lovely for awhile.
I recommend this product for anyone to give it a go and the brand do lots of other fragrances, all of which smell just as nice in my opinion and always look for the special offers as they are often available.
The bottle can easily be recycled which is very good too.
I rate is 5 stars.
You can't really go wrong with the Comfort fabric conditioners. A conditioner is another word for softener by the way, so don't panic if you think it's something brand new to the washing powder market! Comfort have been producing these for years and remain the most trusted brand when it comes to fabric softeners. If you stop and examine the supermarket shelves you will discover that there are not many competitors, so they really do rule the market.
A fabric softener is designed to make your clothes even softer and prepare them for ironing and wearing. If I am feeling very lazy I will wash without a softener, but I always notice the difference. A softener seems to quench the thirst of clothes and produce them with a gentle softness afterwards, plus there is the added benefit of a a delightful scent.
The Passion Flower & Ylang Ylang Fabric Conditioner has a scent that makes me think of strolling through meadows in the midst of June or July and soaking up all the aromas of hedges and everything that is good about summer. There is a subtle lavender essence about it which calms, though I suspect that is the ylang ylang which is renowned for its calming properties. It always leaves my clothes smelling wonderfully aromatic and flowery and fresh.
A 750ml bottle retails for somewhere between one pound fifty and two quid, making it affordable. It should see you through over twenty odd washes, meaning a bottle lasts for a good month or two. This fragrance is superb for relaxing you and always makes my fabrics so much easier to iron, as they come out of the washer feeling light and airy. I always buy Comfort and will continue to do so, highly recommended, good results and a fair price.
Last time I wrote about a fabric conditioner I got a very kind comment that I must smell really good. Well, I have to admit that I hate when people on the underground and on the buses have strong perspiration odour and I prefer having a clean or floral scent which is not so strong to fill the whole bus but I can clearly feel it. So that is why I use a fabric conditioner for our clothes and bring my deodorant in my bag with me.
The Comfort Passionflower and Ylang Ylang fabric conditioner comes in a completely transparent colourless plastic bottle which contains 750 ml purple concentrated fabric conditioner. It has dark purple cap. You can buy it most of the supermarkets. In our local Sainsbury's I bought it for 1.59 pounds. I pour half of it into the old fabric conditioner's bottle and I dilute it with water. I try to add about a half cup to each wash but occasionally I pour a little more so it is good for me to use the diluted version. My kids don't really take care of their clothes so I have to wash about 2 loads every day.
The fabric conditioner in the bottle is not too thick but I really suggest you diluting it. The manufacturer says that a cup is more than enough. I think that a cap from the diluted version is more than enough as the Comfort fabric conditioners are of good quality and they have strong scent which will last long on your clothes and make your clothes soft and easier to iron. I don't know how you feel about ironing... I bought myself a lovely iron but even this couldn't make me love ironing for hours. Anyway as I use fabric conditioner I have to iron only my husband's shirts. It is not a big effort. I managed to iron a shirt in exactly 3 minutes.
It has lovely floral scent which is oriental or exotic. I can't really decide. The ylang ylang dominates it anyway. I suppose the other scent that I feel is the passion flower which I haven't seen and smelled yet.
The ingredients are as follows: 5-15% Cationic Surfactants, <5% Perfume, Butylphenyl Methylpropional, Hexyl Cinnamal, Benzyl Salicylate, Limonene, Alpha-Isomethyl Ionone, Citronellol, Benzisothiazolinone.
This fabric conditioner was made by Unilever UK (Unilever House, Springfield Drive, Leatherhead, Surrey, KT22 7GR). For more information about the manufacturer visit www.unilever.co.uk site.
I think all the Comfort fabric conditioners are of really good quality. In the shop it is difficult to choose which one will be your favourite. I don't have my preference list yet as there are a few more I have to try. When you open the bottle the smell of the fabric conditioner is extremely strong and very different from the scent you will feel on your clothes.
I like to use them because they make our clothes soft and have a discrete scent which lasts long. I found that almost all of their products can be used for the whole family. This particular one is probably a little too feminine but as I use only half a cup from the diluted conditioner its scent can't be felt by others unless they are very close to you.
Recently I haven't been using conditioner in many loads of washing as the fragrance from the washing liquid has been adequate but as I'd bought a different product I have been using my Conditioner again and the result has been worth the extra cost.
My Conditioner is the concentrate variety and therefore it saves space as the 750ml bottle will last for 21 washes. The bottle can be recycled.
The bottle is clear plastic with a purple lid, which reminds me of a hat as it has a rounded inside and a turn-up brim! The inside provides the measuring cup for the exact amount needed, depending on the amount of washing or if doing hand washing. There is a picture of delicate passion flowers and tiny ylang ylang flowers on the bottle. The liquid is a lovely lilac colour and the fragrance is absolutely beautiful. The passion flower and ylang ylang blend to provide an exotic fragrance which is very up lifting. It is quite thin and easy to pour.
Comfort is recommended by Persil and Surf and because it now contains Fresh release technology it releases the fragrance in little bursts of freshness as you move. It should be added to the correct compartment in the washing machine or to rinsing water for hand washing but directly onto clothes. I always rinse my hands after use and have never had a problem with my skin.
I really discovered just how nice it was when I had loads of washing after holidays and I was aware of the pleasant smell as I did the ironing, but when I put on a nightie the next week I could still smell the fragrance and even the next two nights it smelled lovely so I was impressed how the fragrance lasted. Comfort makes fabrics feel nice and soft especially when washing jumpers by hand and they smell lovely too. My husband hasn't complained that his clothes smell nice, so it must be OK!
Ylang ylang is used in aromatherapy and is believed to be an aphrodisiac! It blends well with most floral fragrances, passion flowers are used to make a tea for insomnia, so that may give a calming effect when you wear your clothes.
I think my bottle cost about £1.50 and there are larger bottles available too.
Verdict - makes washing smell delightful and feel soft, but I don't use on towels as it prevents the absorption of water when drying yourself!
I hate ironing with a passion and I?m probably not alone. It just seems that as soon as I?ve managed to get the huge mountain of ironing under control, another pile rears its ugly head when I?m not looking. How does it do that? With 2 young children and a husband to run around after the muck monster is never too far away ready to spring into action when I least expect it. This happens quite frequently, mainly when a) I?m not in the mood, and b) I just want to sit down and have some ?Me time?. But as it?s out of my control and no-one else will do it, I have to just roll up my sleeves and get on with it. For those beginning to know me, I am a sucker for any new gimmicks that promise to make your life easier. Comfort Vaporesse was my most recent impulse buy. I say impulse buy, but my excuse is that it was brought purely for consumer research. Yeah right!! After receiving a money-off voucher for Comfort Vaporesse in my last Bounty Pack, I thought I?d try some. What is Comfort Vaporesse? Well, basically it is a fancy, tarted-up scented water specially designed for using in your steam iron instead of boring old tap-water. After ironing your clothes are left smelling gorgeously fresh and clean. As well as smelling nice, the clothes seem easier to iron. The iron glides over effortlessly making the experience more bearable and before I knew it my pile of clothes had gone. There are two fragrances available ? Original and Ylang Ylang and Rice Water. As I use Comfort Fabric Conditioner with Ylang Ylang in my washing machine I opted for the second one and both products complemented each other. Gone are the sandpaper towels and cardboard jeans, in their place luxurious cotton-wool and satin. Not quite, I know, but I found that my clothes really did become softer after ironing. Made by Lever Brothers, Comfort Vaporesse is widely available in most supermarkets. Costing anything from £0.98 to £1.19 it does work out quite expens
ive as anyone who has a steam iron will know how often you need to refill your iron during a big load of ironing. Perhaps if you were able to dilute then it would be worth the money.
