    Default Recommend a nice clean fresh soapy....

    Hey all..recently I took some advice on here regarding a nice soapy frag and tested prada Amber..I loves it in the store but after wearing it a handful of times I have come to not like it as much and will be selling it. I really like it but just couldn't get past the reminder of baby lotion....
    Can you recommend another frag that can be used for everyday office use and has a clean fresh soapy scent with a decent sillage? Thanks

    Paco Rabanne PH. It is a classic and can be found just about anywhere for about $30?

    -Very fresh and clean, soapy feel to it.

    Hope that helped

    Prada Amber Pour Homme has a very rich, soapy aroma but I guess it's not for you. The last time I sampled Caron Pour un Homme, which is really just lavender, someone commented that smelled like fresh soap. Not what I'd normally call soapy but hey you never know.

    The standard responses are Mugler Cologne and Gendarme.

    Calvin Klein Be, Bvlgari pour Homme & Extreme, Prada Infusion d'Iris, Dior Homme Cologne (the lighter version) all smell quite 'soapy' to my nose. I guess it depends what sort of soap you want?

    I will add that the EdP for Gendarme is astoundingly better. It feels more like "shower fresh" soapy instead of castile soap.

    Also for soapy, it's hard to find but Chaumet Homme was awesome soapiness for me. Samples are floating are the internet in places.

    D&G pour Homme sometimes is referred to as soapy. It's kinda more like baby powder to me.

    Perry Ellis 18 for Men I remember being sharp, soapy and aromatic but youthful in a way. And long the lines of numbers, Cerruti 1881 is very soapy to me but with a woody patchouli.

    Moss Breches by Tom Ford, well, anything with a good oakmoss in the base I consider slightly soapy.

    I get the soapiness out of D&G.
    Coincidentally I dabbed a little Dunhill Man (what DO we call this one? anyway, it's this) from a sample bottle I'd forgotten about last night. I find it very soapy in a very nice way. Smells like you just stepped out of a shower having used some rather exotic soap.

    Keep in mind that the most recent incarnation of Paco Rabanne is but a shadow of it's original self. FWIW.
