    Default The Cleanest, Freshest Fragrance Available?

    I want a fragrance that smells like the cleanest, freshest, most crisp refreshing smell possible. Does anyone know which one that is?

    I hate to sound like a downer, but I wasn't too impressed with those. Versace The Dreamer & Philosophy's Amazing Grace are the closest thing to most clean and fresh fragrances I've smelled. I thought there might be more out there. Thanks for the suggestions though! Any more?

    Dreamer doesn't smell clean & fresh. A bit fresh it might be, but definitely not clean. If you didn't like Mugler cologne, then give Dlish Clean Man a shot.

    Mugler cologne.. it has this slightly sour smell that I don't like about it. I want something more.. soapy & laundry cotton.

    And I'll check that out.

    For some reason, Silver Mountain Water by Creed sounds like it would fit the description I want? Clean and fresh? Or am I just judging a cologne by its cover?

    Soapy and Laundry = Gendarme 20.

    i spray all my clothes with it because then they smell like i just took them out the drier .....pure, blissful lavender.

    Puro Lino smells like geraniums and ivory soap. I have never tried anything that fits the clean, soapy smell like this one. Luckyscent has samples.

    Gendarme 20 is a good suggestion and so is checking out Clean's fragrances. You just HAVE to find something fitting there. Also check out Gendarme's Carriere.

    Also, try getting a hold of a decant (a sample just won't do it) of Comme des Garcons Odeur 53. Ultrafresh and quirky, I still love it many years after I first smelled it.

    Go read about Odeur 53 on Luckyscent's webiste: http://www.luckyscent.com/shop/detai...1600&section=1

    Geir by Geir Ness, it's a BN favourite.

    Try some stuff from the Clean range from Dlish... Clean Men is soapy fresh; Clean Fresh Laundry smells like, uh, fresh clean laundry; and take a guess what Clean Warm Cotton smells like.

    Only Clean Men is listed as a "Men's" fragrance, but the other two are certainly wearable for men. Clean Men was certainly the best of the three in my opinion, but this isn't really my favorite category of fragrance.

    Clean Men is nauseatingly fresh. It smells like you just washed yourself in a tart fruit salad. You can get 1oz bottles on beauty.com. Paying $100+ at a department store would be a little silly.

    This may seem from out in left field but Prada (amber pour homme) has a strong, distinct soap note that I find to invoke cleanliness. The new Hugo Boss Pure is pretty darn grapefruity fresh as well.

    Philosophy Pure Grace (as opposed to Amazing Grace) - marketed as "pure soap and water notes" - and it does smell like that

    Also as mentioned previously:

    Puro Lino
    Mugler Cologne
    Gendarme
    Clean Men (or the other Clean fragrances)

    Not an upscale fragrance, but I remember Lacoste Cool Play to be extremely fresh. Not sure whether it's laundry-fresh, but it should be easy to try out given its availability.

    I'll go with Nightflight and Live Jazz. Nightflight has the most fresh opening - it will literally clear your head and sinuses. Live Jazz because IMO I have not found anything else that could be liberally sprayed on a 40 degree day and not become nauseating.

    When I think of clean scents, my mind jumps to:

    Pleasures for Men by Estee Lauder
    Clinique Chemistry
    Eddie Bauer Pure

    My favorite part about these scents is I don't detect any cheap Juniper Berry in them.

    Clinique's Happy would probably fit the bill, although I'm not recommending it because I detect the aforementioned foul Juniper Berry smell. But if you like that, you may want to try it.

    I think these worth a try:
    Bois 1920 Sandalo E - More on the clean semi-sweet lemony side
    Frapin - Caravelle Epicee - more on the crisp side with a strong mint note

    I would go with Gendarme or Geir. Two different scents but both very clean. The Clean line by D'lish I find to be a bit cloying and not for me. I would try to get samples of all recommended fragrances before blind buying any of them. There are even a few mentioned here that I haven't yet tried, but may get samples to test. For those who say Mugler Cologne you may also add Creed OV.

    It sounded like Mugler Cologne didn't sit very well... I agree that it doesn't smell fresh really. Or it does, but it has two sides. The darker part is almost cinnamon like, standing with one foot in Musc Ravageur territory.

    I must agree with Ruggles and the beck, having smelled my fair share of 'clean' scents, Puro Lino by Puro Lino is fantastic. Please try this JordanRoss.
