I like perfumes that remind me of certain events and holidays but I also love perfumes that instantly evoke something familiar. I like lavender from France because it smells just like walking through a field, and I like Clean Reserve White Amber & Warm Cotton because it smells exactly like clean laundry; instantly making you feel fresh with one spritz.
Clean Reserve White Amber & Warm Cotton
Top Notes: Aldehydes, Cassis Buds, Green Accord
Middle Notes: Jasmine Petals, Lilies, Peony
Base Notes: Amber, Clean Woods, Musks
What Does It Smell Like?
It smells like clean laundry, in the best possible way. As in, the delicious freshness of clean sheets on a Sunday night? It’s that, bottled. We all know that fresh sheets and shaved legs is universally acknowledged to be the best thing ever, right? White Amber & Warm Cotton has the cosiness of freshly laundered sheets, plus it makes you instantly feel fresh and focused. It’s light and perfect for an everyday summer scent. White Amber gives it this continual warmth that keeps it more sophisticated than laundry detergent. The Warm Cotton also adds a certain softness to the entire scent, so although it has potentially sharp aldehydes as a top note, it’s not too overtly green.
What’s It Similar To?
I haven’t smelt a lot of things similar – what sets Clean Reserve apart is that they really capture elements that can be prolonged. Not a burst of fruity floral but enhancing freshness on the skin. There’s Estee Lauder Pure White Linen, which smells vaguely similar… There’s also The Fragrance Of Library who have a few options, including Laundromat, but it’s not quite as wholesome as Clean Reserve White Amber & Warm Cotton.
