The smell of this litter is nice, but it is short lived. I got this litter for cheap at Target so I'm using it anyway. I found that it doesn't really smell much after the initial pour into the box. The cats don't mind the litter. I find its a pain the scoop. It is not very good at clumping and often leaves those little clumps all over the box that are too small to be picked up with the scooper. Overall it is okay litter for cheap, but I wouldn't pay full price for it.
