The smell is really good! It's a bit sweet, but compared to the regular cleaners from the supermarket, the smell is divine. Does not irritate my sinuses at all. Does a good job cleaning the kitchen without leaving any noticeable residue. Leaves a pleasant smell that lingers for a while. Love it! Of the all purpose cleaners from Method, this is the one with the best rating on EWG. Don't know why exactly, but it made me buy it and I don't regret it!
