I ordered these at the same time as another pack of non-scented neon bands and once both had arrived I was actually unable to work out which was which. Neither packet was marked as being scented and I couldn`t detect a scent really. Maybe they sent me the wrong ones or maybe they actually don`t do what it says they are supposed to do. As far as functionality goes though, they worked as well as any for actually making bands with. I just feel a bit let down that I didn`t really get ones that had a strong smell to them as I was hoping.
