I just got flourish nitrogen, phosphorus, potassium and trace from Seachem.
They all appear to be transparent in liquid color (and have no smell).
Nitrogen has a turquoise tint to it.
I am concern because i have purchased "flourish" and I know that one has a strong dark brown color to it.
At least I was hoping for the trace to have some earth color to it...
Just wondering if i have been tricked by the seller.

That's the color they should have, although I have noticed trace getting a little but of a brown tint as it ages. Oxidation? To me, they each have a distinct smell except for nitrogen. I have a fairly sensitive nose, so keep that in mind. The phosphate has a bit of a musty smell to me, potassium is very mineral smelling and trace smells a bit like urine.

Whatever you do, don't smell the iron...

The flourish looks sort of like a CSM+B solution.
