Whether you like these wipes or not will depend to a great extent on what you think of the scent. It is not particularly strong but it is distinctive, and it lingers.

The active ingredient is thymol, a naturally occurring compound that has been used (as a constituent of various plant oils) for thousands of years for its antiseptic properties. Today you will find it in many mouthwash and toothpaste formulations. That may give you a clue as to the sort of scent it has.

The tissues are well-sodden and so an application goes a long way. They seem to be as effective as other wipes. They are worth a try.

Honestly, after wiping something down, I don't watch it and time it to see if it is visibly wet for 10 minutes. I guess I just hope it stays wet for a long enough period to kill …
