Like others it's not essential but does make a difference and when faced with a range of waxes then I might be influenced by scent or colour.

Not at all. As long as the product does what i need it to do then i can live with the smell whether it is nice or not.

Not essential and logical but it adds to the overall experience.

Depends on the product,

I appreciate that iron decon smells the way it does but that's why it works, so you deal with it.

If it was interior then it can't linger or be OTT, but shampoos are an addition smelling good along with waxes, just makes it now enjoyable for me

When buying any new product you have no idea how it’s going to smell. The manufactures can say it smells of ‘cherries’ but you won’t know if it smells of just ‘cherries’ or ‘cherries’ with whatever chemicals the product is made up from. I base purchasing of any product on three things, reviews, price, presentation (how the product looks, packaging, website etc) and not necessarily in that order.

I do think it’s a deciding factor whether you buy the same product again though and yes it could be a deal breaker. I think manufactures are in a difficult position as we all have different tastes and are looking for different things from a product. Some (myself included) actually like the smell of a product that smells of chemicals.

Saying all the above, if the product works it doesn’t matter what it smells of (Iron Out) and if it doesn’t work it doesn’t matter how good it smells I’m not going to be buying it again. There are so many products on the market if you don’t like it from one manufacture you can buy the same product from a different manufacture.

I’ll leave you with this question. Imagine how well a non-odour or pleasant smelling iron contaminant remover would sell?

In modern times am kinda upset if it doesn't smell nice, all the effort gone in to the product then an appeasing scent is expected these days plus who doesn't like a pleasent smell when there working.

Now if they could make a nicer smelling gearbox oil I would be grateful.

If it's an air freshener or interior cleaner then yeah definitely.

If it's a wheel cleaner or fallout remover then not at all.

nice smell is just a bonus. Lets be honest if it was that important Iron X wouldn't have ever been the success it is now would it
