What if I add cloves to French Onion soup?

Will it ruin the soup?

Personally, I do not like that flavor but I think it would overwhelm the dish.

I love cloves but not in French Onion soup. Yes, it would change the flavor. If you, personally, would like cloves add a dash (or a dried clove) to your soup bowl.

It will ruin the soup only if you or those to whom it's served don't like a taste of cloves.
There ARE recipes for French Onion soup that include cloves, so using them isn't (totally) beyond the pale, but it sounds strange.
Maybe make some Indian soups, or recipes which more commonly feature cloves.
