Reviews of parfums*PARFUMS Series 6 Synthetic: Dry Clean

Fortunately, I was able to snag a bottle of this fragrance (which happened to be laying around in a C.D.G. shop...miraculously!?!?) with the help of a friend who lives half way across the globe. Imagine the smell of a freshly chlorinated indoor swimming pool, now think of Downy liquid fabric softener. Dissolvents, natural smells, synthetic chemicals (nail polish remover?) and the intermingling of these notes sounds scary but somehow it all works wonderfully. Incredibly CLEAN and super attractive. Such a shame that this is discontinued which makes my bottle even more precious :)

Thake Odeur 53, push it to the limit and you'll get Dry Clean. A bizarre concoction of non-smells that actually smell quite bold. Bright and aldehydic, almost lungs expanding, kinda woody and with a strong steam iron accord. The fragrance has an overall synthetic chemical detergent vibe (trichloroethylene?) that smells exactly like your favorite gabardine suit when you get it wrapped in plastic from the dry cleaner's. For abstract, strange, conceptual and futuristic fragrance lovers only.

Careful with dosage, this stuff has a tenacious lasting power and quite a strong presence. Better worn of fabric.

By all means Comme Des Garcons.

On paper, this just doesn't add up. A truly bizarre combination of the artificial and the natural. But it works for me. I keep this and "Garage" all the time.

DOES ANYONE AGREE WITH ME THAT DRYCLEAN RESEMBLES EGOISTE? its almost like they have tried to build the synthetic version.

Dry Clean was a bit of a dissappoinment for me. Initially, it's quite a captivating scent with it's light, airy, synthetic nature. However, there is a strange sweetness to the scent which I find hard to stomach and I find it more grating on repeated wearings. Another minus would be its lack of longevity. I find with Dry Clean, it dissappears very quickly. It is not a band scent by any stretch, but definitely not the best in CDG's Synthetic series and one of the weaker scents from CDG overall. Odeur 53 or 71 are better for fans of synthetics.

Match made in heaven with rainy summer days, preferably with thunderstorm.

This is super strong fragrance with 24h lasting power and monstrous sillage. Very offputting if you cant ease yourself on the trigger.
Great on clothes too, you really should try it.

Bizarre mix of natural and artificial.

This is one of those evocative scents which takes me back in time, in this case, about 25 years.
As a little boy me and my buddies used to visit alot the laundry room of our apartment building. At the summertime, during the hot days, on our shorts and t-shirts, we went there to drink the water from water faucet....and many times someone had an idea to spray the water all over from the hose, so that eventually whole place was soaking wet.

That`s it. Dry Clean smells like fresh water, rinses and laundry detergents, metallic washing machines, rubber hoses, wet concrete floor and whiffs from the drying room.
It smells like life without a single problem.
