    To me Azzaro Silver Black is a very nice clean and fresh, affordable scent.

    When I want to feel cleanest and freshest I use Acqua di Parma, because it makes me feel that way. No idea whether it will make you think of clean laundry and clean moments though.

    I'm having AdP Assoluta on my right hand, Azzaro Silver Black on left hand whole day: both are clean and fresh There's not much common in them, which shows that clean and fresh can be very different things.

    I agree that Geir is about as fresh as fresh can be.

    Floris Special No. 127 smells like special laundry detergent.

    Penhaligon's English Fern has that classic fresh yet sophisticated smell.

    Bahiana by Maître Parfumeur et Gantier is fresh but sweet.

    Original Vetiver smells almost exactly like Mugler Cologne.

    Geir Ness is an airy freshness that's kind of odd to me.

    I´d recommend this, or if you can´t find Comme des Garcons try any of the other laundry scents that are available. Library of Fragrane has a cheap one that is pretty clean and easy.

    Or one of the humeurs from l´artisan is very airy and clean.

    Other scents that might come across as clean might be green tea scents?

    I think Bulgari Pour Homme smells extremely fresh and clean. I love it.

    Lots of "clean smelling" comments with Mugler Cologne, Bulgari Pour Homme and Versace Man Eau Fraîche.

    Oops, I forgot that one. It's more airy than anything else listed, though.

    This thread is anything but boring so here's another suggestion - Fissore Rapsodia in blu,
    The scent begins as a crisp citrusy and actually behaves like a good Chardone and it dries into a clean watery scent that keeps for several hours, longer than I'd thought it would given its gentle nature.
    I saw Geir mentioned - in my opinion, it's too powdery to be considered "clean", especially some time after application.

    At first I was going to suggest Mugler Cologne or Original Vetiver, but it sounds like you don't like those.

    I would also suggest:

    Creed - Green Irish Tweed. To me it smells a bit like Zest.
    Chanel Allure Homme Edition Blanche - it's very clean and very powdery.

    lanvin l'homme is the essence of clean, and super cheap online to boot.

    Kouros!

    My suggestion is only half in jest. I actually find Kouros very clean and refreshing. Besides, if the OP thinks The Dreamer smells clean, then all the Gendarme (one of my very favorites too), etc. recommendations may be pointing in the wrong direction.
    Just because it happened to you doesn't make it interesting.

    In theory, there is no difference between theory and practice. In practice, there is.

    Roger & Gallet Vetyver. Being discontinued, it appears, but inexpensive and soapy-fresh.

    I'd like to suggest Carriere by Carriere as well.

    Notes:
    Citrus, soft florals, bergamot, lavender, lilac and jasmine.

    Paul Smith Extreme is clean in crisp in a different way than most of the others mentioned so far.

    It smells like driftwood that has been stripped clean by the sun, ocean and age. It doesn't smell like clean laundry or soap, but in it's own way, it's very clean.

    The scent grows richer, he knows he must be near

    From familiar fragrance to flavours strange

    Tommy T is the cleanest, crispest scent which is very fresh that I own.

    But for the longest lasting freshest scent, I'd go for Azzaro Chrome - not the cleanest because it smells like something, whereas I haven't a clue what Tommy T smells like.

    Laundromat by Demeter smells extremely clean - but one would probably feel very silly wearing it.

    I consider "Himalaya" by Creed the cleanest, freshest fragrance available. But if you consider The Dreamer by Versace, something near to your goal, I would recommend "Prada Amber Pour Homme": In the same family as Dreamer. (Oriental-Fougere and Soapy).
    Also give these ones a try:
    -Lacoste Cool and Hot Play
    -Lanvin L'Homme
    -cK one summer variations
    -Cool Water summer editions...

    But is is Carriere by Gendarme isn't it? Luckyscent has that screwed up somehow...

    There is another one:

    Rive Gauche Pour Homme.

    I just smelled Heely Sel Marin for the first time yesterday (on a strip). It is very clean, almost like a sea breeze. It might be worth a try.

    For some more commonly attainable scents, I second Cool Water and also suggest Issey Miyake L'eau d'Issey pour Homme. Estee Lauder Beyond Paradise for Men is also very good.
