It is true that fragrance can carry with it very clear and powerful memories. For me, one of the most comforting scent memories from my youth is freshly done laundry, and in particular, the smell of fresh t-shirts (right out of the dryer!).
When I got a chance to try CLEAN's latest scent, CLEAN Cotton T-Shirt Eau de Parfum Spray, I was very hopeful that it would bring me right back to those moments growing up. I thought the idea behind creating this type of scent was brilliant, but might be hard to pull off without it coming across as a "detergent smell".
Well, I am happy to report that not only did CLEAN succeed in creating a scent inspired by a clean, cotton t-shirt, but an amazing, fresh scent perfect for summer!
The opening notes of the fragrance rely on a heavy concentration of very crisp, strong bergamont notes (this may remind many of you of a men's scent at first, but a boyfriend's t-shirt is also part of the scent story for this fragrance). This note stayed with me quite a long time, which gave it that fresh "laundry" feel without smelling like soap, per say. It I also really liked the middle floral notes of freesia and cotton flower, which, along with the aldehydes, gave it a beautiful, bright, clear freshness. The dry down was not as crisp, but still light with a touch more warmth from the sheer amber and musks.
This is a very multi-purpose scent - easily wearable for daytime/work, weekend outings and even evening dining Al fresco...
Fans of the CLEAN scents and those of you who like crisp, light green/florals like me will be wearing CLEAN Cotton T-Shirt Eau de Parfum Spray for this summer - and many more to come! - RLB
