Thread: Diaper scent differences in UK and US (Or lack of)

    Default Diaper scent differences in UK and US (Or lack of)

    People often refer to "the pampers smell" and the smell of Luvs but until I imported some Cruisers I could never understand why people liked the smell of glue and plastic.

    So from my experience;
    Huggies Super Dry Size 6 (UK) before they were discontinued were un-scented.
    Huggies Drynites 2007 to 2012 (UK) are un-scented.
    Pampers Baby dry Size 6 and 6+ (UK) are un-scented.
    Pampers Easy Ups (UK) are un-scented but had a really strong smell of chemicals when I bought some in 2013.
    Pampers Active Fit Size 5+ (UK), un-scented.
    Pampers New Baby Size 1 (UK), un-scented.
    Toujours Junior Big Pants, (Cheep pull-ups from Lidl) un-scented.
    Pampers Cruisers Size 7 Jumbo Size (US) smell sort of sweet.

    Is this a preference of UK consumers? Has anyone else noticed this or am I buying the wrong diapers?

    When I think of "the pampers smell" I think of what Pampers USED to smell like. They're not like the were in the 90s.

    The "Pampers smell" (or that of any diaper) has never really been a nostalgic scent, but the scents of baby powder and oddly enough muslin are strongly nostalgic and often encourage me regress.

    Regarding adult and UK available adult nappies, ID Expert Slips smell horrible when they come out the bag and don't lose the smell either, I'm not saying however that I worked through them quickly!

    What I'm getting at is that UK nappies don't seem to have been intentionally sprayed with perfume to give them a distinct "baby" smell. Instead leaving just the smell of the materials they are made out of.
