There's probably not any specific fragrances for laundry detergent making, but you could probably add lavender, etc, essential oils (obtain from a health food store or possibly some arts and crafts type stores).

Essential oils. Not fragrance oils they will stain your clothes! Our local Michaels carry some in the soap-making section. Or you can make your own using fresh herbs & flowers. Soak them in a carrier oil such as Jojoba, almond, grapeseed, etc for a couple of weeks. Strain the oil, and repeat as necessary for desired strength.

Last time I made my detergent, I had seen on another site to use 1 cup scented fabric softener. I used gain and it turned out great, a good smell. I use a whisk to whisk my detergent several times during the first 24 hours and it comes out much smoother.

I use essential oils to add scent. I would use 20 drops to start .. add more or less depending on preference.
