Lavender vs. Grapefruit

I have two choices before me: Lavender or Grapefruit.


I recently bought a sample pack of Eucalan Delicate wash containing all five scents. The scents included were: Unscented, Grapefruit, Lavender, Wrapture – Jasmine, and Eucalyptus. These are my own opinions and have nothing to do with the quality of Eucalan. I happen to love the product itself and will be using all of the sampler bottles once I finish future projects. Except for the Unscented, which was given to The Maternal Parental. Eucalan is not paying me to say any of this stuff. I just wanted to do a blog post since I had a comparison in front of me.


Now, down to the business. I am a little put off by two of the five scents. I, personally, am not a big fan of Eucalyptus. While I do like pine-ish/evergreen-y scents normally, I don’t really like them in my delicates. As light and refreshing as the scent is in the bottle, I think that I would get tired of it if I had to smell it all day in my sweater. Though, I will be trying it out as a moth repellent. I am also not a fan of Wrapture – Jasmine. It is too overpowering for my palate. Unscented is aptly described. It carries no scent as far as I could ascertain. In future, I may get a small 16.9oz bottle for projects where the scent tolerance of the recipient is low. However, this one is also not for me personally.


This leaves two scented bottles to choose from. I’m familiar with Lavender. This is the scent I normally buy when getting a 16.9oz bottle of Eucalan. The scent lasts forever and isn’t cloying. I quite like it actually. However, the bottle I have as an option to purchase is almost $57USD. I’ve seen it go as high up as $69 and as low as $46 on my preferred shopping portal.


In the other corner is Grapefruit. I didn’t think I was going to like this scent as much as I do. It isn’t overpoweringly Grapefruit-y. It is more of a generic citrus blossom aroma. Anyone who knows me knows I can’t stand actual Grapefruit at all. So this scent is welcome and pleasant to experience. This bottle option is priced at a little under $46USD as of the writing of this blog post. I’m not sure how the scent lasts though. I will have to try it out to see. To be honest, I have never looked at the price fluctuation of Grapefruit Eucalan before. First time for everything.


I currently have both in my cart to see how the prices fluctuate over the next month and a half and which will ultimately be the better buy. 


So, what do you all think? Are you Team Lavender or Team Grapefruit? Do you have a favorite Eucalan or a different Delicate Wash product? Please, chime in via the comments. Thanks for reading!

  1. I love a grapefruit scent, but for knits and delicates, I’d go with the lavender. I think the grapefruit could become cloying. And not age out as well. Also, lavender does repel moths, etc.
