I haven't been around "fresh scent," but my Mother used to use Downy fabric
softener.  First night I visited her, I complained that I had had very
little sleep because I couldn't breathe.  Asked what I used, I answered,
"anything but Downy."  Don't know what's in it, but it does a number on me.
 Margaret, who wouldn't be caught dead in spandex, but who enjoys seeing
spider-legged thin women walk away, wearing spandex.  A memorable scene.
