    Default Best Fresh, clean, just out of the shower frag

    I would like to get everyone's idea for the best, fresh, clean, just out of the shower fragrances.
    I suppose I would also include "barbershop" types of scents.

    I would start out with:

    Guerlain Vetiver
    Creed Original Vetiver

    Please add to my list if you would be so kind.

    Thanks,
    Jon

    I feel very fresh and pristine when I wear the traditional cologne by Roger & Gallet: Extra Vieille Jean Marie Farina (the red box). It is delicious, and I bought the biggest bottle, 33oz or 1 liter. I literally bathe in it.

    I'll third Gendarme and second Mugler Cologne!!


    Clean Men is pretty nice. There is a scent my brother and his wife love called Pure Grace.....see it advertised on HSC and such. Pretty nice.....IMHO, it gives Gendarme a run for the money!

    Some interesting recommendations.

    Guerlain Vetiver I wouldn't put in the "clean out of the shower" category. How can it be with so much tobacco and spices? Sorry, I just don't get it.

    I've seen Rive Gauche mentioned before when this topic has come up. I don't get this one as "clean out of the shower" either. Too complex and spicy.

    Muglar Cologne
    Creed OV
    Gendarme

    Are the ones that fit the bill in my opinion.

    The scent grows richer, he knows he must be near
    He finds a long passageway lit by chandelier
    Each step he takes, the perfumes change
    From familiar fragrance to flavours strange
    A magnificent chamber meets his eye

    Other than those already mentioned in this thread, Alyssa Ashley Musk for men is one that I think fits this category well.

    It's true that Rive Gauche PH finishes fairly woody, with gaiac and patchouli, but the opening is all about the Barbasol-like soapy clean barbershop note.

    I also second Mugler Cologne, Original Vetiver and Baie de Genievre, all fine "out of the shower" scents.

    Ditto on Mugler Cologne, Gendarme, Original Vetiver, & Clean Men...& I'll throw in CK be. For some reason it's always reminded me of clean sweat.

    Definately Mugler Cologne, this is right on point. Additionally, Hugo by Hugo Boss is very fresh and soapy and it literally smells like you just got out of the shower. I was given H as a gift and I did not love it immediately, however I have, by far, gotten the most compliments ever with this stuff. Literally, almost every other time I wear it I get a compliment, i.e., got a compliment in the elevator of my office building last time I wore it, this pretty woman looked in my eyes and told me I smelled really good.

    Here is another one: Lanvin L'Homme

    "Blue bottle, Funky Lid, Underrated. Go out and try it. Fresh, cool and different.
    Its creator, Alberto Morillas compares the scent to an elegant white shirt: "Fresh and clean when you put it on in the morning, comfortable all day, masculine""

    Mugler Cologne will always be a running ??? for me around this place. It's up there with Kouros for me where I'm like "WTH" I've tried Mugler 5 times and have worn it twice. The SAs don't get it and say it gets no play. It smells like....nothing...bad soap to me..dirty soap..dirty Ivory but with an old bar. I just don't see what is there to make this even relevant.

    As far as the question....Cool Water and MI (from what I sampled)

    Edit: Sorry about the Mugler rant but if a person wants to buy, I just wanted to suggest they try...plus I had to get it off my chest. Sorry.

    I agree with many of the previous ones, but I'd also recommend Lime Basil Mandarin by Jo Malone.
