Tony T turned me onto this great little hidden gem. Clean Shower Fresh is a high quality, long lasting, citrus fragrance, that's "clean", unique, and has amazing projection for something in this genre of fragrance. When I wear it, I think to myself "there has to be something similar to this" because it's actually really simple smelling; but when I go through everything I know, there is simply nothing quite like it, which makes it stand out and unique.
It opens with a fresh lemon and mint combo, it has metallic feel giving it a cooling effect, and a great black tea note in the dry down. It reminds me a little bit of Eau Maximum by Nickel, and Creed Silver Mountain Water, combined, only more simple. Oh ya, and what a compliment getter this one is, nothing but positive feedback all day. It's becoming harder to find now unfortunately.

without a doubt, one of the cleanest scents you can buy. also a bit of sexiness added with the black tea. a great daytime/nice weather scent that commands attention. great sillage and projectivity. a must buy if you are tired of the armani's and chanel's of the world!!!
You get what you pay for here, and I think the name says it all.
A good scent to wear to work.
Don't overdo it on the trigger; The first couple hours of wear tend to have a massive citrus/soap projection.
If you like the way Irish Spring soap smells, this may be a safe blind buy.
I purchased this blindly expecting a scent similar to Mugler Cologne or Prada Infusion D'homme but this was not the case at all! All this truly smells like is lemon/lime dryer sheets. The top notes to this are incredible though! You get a blast of clean citrus, mostly lemon, and that lingers throughout the scent life. I don't get much of the nutmeg or anything else in the middle notes except the spearmint. It's very subtle, almost faint, but it meshes well with the lemon, black tea, and cedarwood. Normally, cedar is too heavy for my nose but this isn't too strong and the black tea really makes this light and very wearable. It's almost like a sweet cup of black tea with lemon,lime, poured on cedar. Now imagine that scent on a dryer sheet and there you have it. It's a very pleasant smell but I give it a neutral because the longevity and sillage are below average. I got 4 hours tops and within the second hour, this stuff stays ridiculously close to the skin. Clean Men set out for a fragrance with the idea of "shower fresh" but I don't see that in here. It is clean though, very clean, but not shower fresh, and it lacks terribly on staying power. Final Rating B-
