    Default "Just got out of the shower" scented perfumes

    Hey there!

    While borowsing through Sephora at our mall, I came across several perfumes that smelt like soap and water. Philosophy makes one that gave me pause. They were clean, fresh, and I thought it was neat that you could have that "just got out of the shower" smell all day if you wanted. It would be nice on a really hot sticky day. Unfortnatly, the ones I came across smelt a alot like a car wash. I liked the smell, but I wanted something more synonymous with a person's shower, not a cars. I think it was just the type of soapy smell they chose to put in the fragrance.

    Well, does anyone have any fresh, soapy smelling perfumes that I can try? Does anyone wear stuff like this, or is it just a sort of novelty right now.

    Amazing Grace, Banana Republic W, Clear Skies by Bare Escentuals, Davies Gate White Clover(I think I've heard this one is a clean smell). Of course the Clean fragrance line by D'lish.

    I just so happen to have one of these, and I use it exactly as you describe! It's L'Occitane's Eau 4 de Reines, a fresh and clean, slightly soapy rose scent. It starts me off on my rosy days, and I usually refresh with something deeper or richer in a rose fragrance layer later in the day.

    Please, spritz responsibly.

    Okay, people may disagree with me on this one, but I find Joy to be fairly soapy, in a good way. It reminds me a lot of certain floral soaps we used to get when I was a kid.

    Call me crazy, but that's the way Joy strikes me. Or, hey, just call me crazy (many people do).

    For that just got of the shower scent, I favor Amazing Grace and Sicily the most. Also, Lacoste Touch of Pink or J.Lo Glow may work as well. Baby Grace smells nice, too for a fresh clean baby smell. Cote Bastide Lin smells like freshly cleaned linens that have been left out in the sun to dry by a field of lavender.

    J Lo's Glow smells exactly like the old-time Cashmere Bouquet powder to me and is definitely in this category. Many perfumistas have commented that one of my faves, Hermes Caleche, smells like expensive French soap. And if you want to go the budget route...BBW has a scent called Cotton Blossom that might fit your mood.

    One day I wore KOM to my office. One lady came to pass a document saying to me with a surprising look: why do you smell so fantastically soapy?

    I agree with Davis Gate White clover - smells like a beautiful expensive bath soap - very fresh; Bare Escentuals Clear Skies is another one that I love. How about for a cheap and cheerful "just out of the shower fresh" scent - Calgon Morning Glory Intense EDT? I, also, love L'Occitane's Eau 4 de Reines - I agree...it is so clean and fresh.

    I'm a complete nut about "fresh, out of the shower" scents.

    Good luck!

    This might sound crazy, but every time I wear Ysatis my husband tells me I smell like the old, green Palmolive bar soap. In a good way, of course...but still.

    I think, "Signoricci" (the Original) was such a perfume. Although originally for men, I loved to use it for it´s fresh, soapy smell.

    I recently smelled Creed's Original Vetiver for the first tme. I thought it smelled exactly like a bar of ivory soap. To a "T". Ma Griffe used to smell soapy on me. But it's been years since I've worn that one and I don't know if it's been changed. And Fracas dries down clean and soapy on me (not the bombshell that so many find it to be).

    The Place des Lices scent Pivoine smells fresh from the shower--vanishingly light but totally clean, almost as natural and subtle as the actual fresh from the shower scent, or should I say, fresh from the long, indulgant, bath.

    I actually just found one today: Alessandro Dell'Acqua by Alessandro Dell'Acqua . Been avoiding it because of the "Aqua" in the name.. but there is nothing aquactic in that one

    Default Re: "Just got out of the shower" scented perfumes

    My favorites are soap-bar reminiscent ones: Amazing Grace, Mugler Cologne, Jlo Glow (imo evokes - tea rose soap bar), White Musk by Acca Kappa (white musk in general)...

    Hmmm anything aquatic, fresh and green. So many niche fragrances named...I'll go designer.
    Nautica Voyage- Smells like clean laundry and watermelon.
    Mugler Cologne- I just remember this being clean smelling...this was inspired by soap lol.
    Issey Miyake-L'eau d'Issey pour homme/pour femme- Both extremely unisex, just fresh and clean!

    Many fresh fragrances out there...but...all these are pretty unisex with a just-out-of-the-shower feel.

    Another vote for the Mugler Cologne.

    If you can find it, Joop Le Bain fits the bill admirably.

    Also Clarins Eau Ressourcante.

    The revival of a five-year-old thread! (No wonder it didn't look familiar, heh!)

    I agree that Joy smells soapy; Clean Lather smells like a combination of Dove (pink bar) and Ivory soap; and I find that some orange blossom scents are soapy smelling, such as VS Lace: Orange Flower.

    I agree about Sicily, also Prada Infusion d'iris smells soapy to me.

    Sorry to bump this thread after so long, I was searching for frag suggestions that smell like Pears and green Palmolive soap bars!

    I can however suggest Jovan White Musk (cheap!!) - sweet soapy that whipsers softly, it's a real comfort scent to me... And Eden by Cacherel - it's soapy green to me, think a steamy shower room, soap, and toothpaste. Call me odd, that's what it reminds me of!
