You can add any fragrance oil or essential oil for scent. Which tide scent were you thinking of? Original? Maybe search for original tide fragrance oil through google and see what pops up..you would be amazed at what knockoff scents you can get easily.

Re: something to add to homemade laundry soap that smells like tide?

I can relate. I used to be a scent free dye free yada yada gal but I got some freebie tide samples or something and fell in love, man that scent covered up any stink from having BOYS. It more or less rinses out and I use like 1/4 the called for amount in the wash so is there is just a touch of scent but I much prefer a TOUCH of laundry soap scent to a TOUCH of sweat or just man funk. It never mattered how I washed hot/warm/col one rinse or a zillion the man funk stayed with the scent free stuff (which has a "scent" a stale almost plasticy non-scent)

you should be able to sub 1:1 for the amount of lavender/tee tree etc. called for in the natural recipes.
