    Here are the notes: Lemon, Mandarin, Blackberry, Pepper, Angelica, Cardamom, Juniper, Sandalwood, Cedarwood, Ambergris.

    The angelica and juniper predominate after the first minutes. It always reminds me of gin and tonic, but compare some of the notes to the flavorings listed on gin bottles and you'll see why...

    Hesperidic notes are generally considered "fresh," so I don't see why that would disqualify HP Blue from this thread; but hey, whatever you say, man!

    Good point; I was considering the request for "no fruity notes" which I included citrus to be.

    Thanks for the info though; its funny how I can't detect either.

    Funny, but I think of "fruity" as referring to stuff that smells like fruit pulp; most of the real hesperidic notes are from fruit rinds or other parts of fruit trees (bark, leaves, flowers, etc.) To my mind, the latter are really fresh, and not at all fruity-sweet (although neroli, lime blossoms, etc. can be flowery-sweet).

    I don't think Rive Gauche smells clean... just a little menthol-y. My favorite clean/fresh is Prada Amber Pour Homme, it is sooooo good!

    Wow, I hope you didnt purchase Rive Gauche PH thinking you would find "fresh and clean".

    Davidoff Echo and Odeur 53 would both work.
    I'm a fresh scent junkie and proud of it!

    NB - the OP hasn't logged into BN for over 4 years. It seems rather unlikely he will be revisiting this thread now
