What are perfume capsules?

Perfume capsules are the technology that Downy Infusions uses to give your fabrics touch-activated scent. They are best described as really tiny bubbles that contain little bursts of perfume.

Where do the perfume capsules end up?

Perfume capsules are infused into your fabrics during the wash, and will remain intact for up to 12 weeks out of storage, waiting to be released by the power of touch.

How do perfume capsules work?

When your fabrics are rubbed by hand or fabric-to-fabric, the perfume capsules will burst, releasing an invigorating puff of fragrance. So whenever you want to refresh the fragrance of Downy Infusions, all it takes is a simple touch.
