    The scent you want is Kenneth Cole's Reaction T-Shirt. Yes, that is the name, Reaction T-Shirt.

    It is a great clean linen/cotton scent.

    I've always been of the opinion that serge lutens gris clair smells fresh and clean like the dry cleaners. I don't like Gris Clair but my opinion is vastly outnumbered here on these forums. Perhaps you would like it? it's expensive but try a sample.

    Lacoste L12.12 Pure (the white bottle).

    Or I think the mos authentic of linen/soap/clean smells is some of the fragrances from CLEAN. They have one called Fresh Laundry and one called cotton t-shirt.

    Another you should try - even though it is technically 'for women' it works well on men too, imo - is Essence by Narciso Rodriguez. This should be easy to find and try.

    And if you want to smell like the most opulent and luxurious dryer sheets you can imagine, Amouage Silver is the scent for you!

    I've heard that Amouage Ciel Man (or is it Dia?!) has this feel to it.

    Maria Candida Gentile's 'Exultat' has a 'linen accord' in its base. It comes with a great deal of violet leaf and frankincense, too, however, so it may not be what you are after.

    I am a female but I am going to chime in on male "fresh linen" scent. If you are secure in your masculinity, Jennifer Aniston's fragrance smells like the most lovely basket of fresh laundry straight out of the drier. I personally have never paid any attention to gender designations for fragrance.

    It is available to try in most department stores. Both of my boys (ages 2 and 4) said 'laundry soap' when we sampled it. It seems to last for a long time too. It's totally not in my area (I'm amber/vanilla/citrus/white floral) but if I was buying "clean linen" it would be on my list.

    Also, if you have a Kohl's department store nearby (or order from them online) you can use a 30% off coupon to save big $$$. They sell this one and it's a great way to get it at a nice discount.

    Gai Mattiolo Uomo by Gai Mattiolo - Upon application, one is treated to an invigorating wave of hesperidic notes, with their citrus highlights of lemon, bergamot, tangerine and orange. A touch of neroli with its spicy, overripe orangey aspect also presents, while star anise imparts its sweetish, smoky licorice and slightly woody facets. This fascinating melange floats on a cloud of perfumed hedione, with its tinge of citrusy jasmine and woods, and wafts to the awaiting middle. Here, in the pleasing heart, the opening mix is subsumed by a somewhat bracing concoction of lively and woody pepper, menthol-ish clary sage and nutty coriander. A sweet rose presents as well. An oceanic fucus provides an undertone of salty, aquatic plant life. Transitioning to the waiting base, the aquatic brew is encased by creamy and delicately balsamic sandalwood as well as honeyed and slightly smoky guaiacwood. A fresh-linen musk, akin to a fabric softener dryer sheet, showers the woods, and leads to a refreshing drydown. This pleasant, masculine composition is ideal for spring and summer, and has average projection and very good longevity. Given its inexpensive price point, it's a must have.

    Prada Infusion d'Homme has that clean, elegant smell of freshly washed shirt.

    Also Demeter Fragrances has something in that vibe, don't remeber the name.

    Nautical Voyage definitely has a fresh linen note to it. I pair it up with Meca Root Deodorant for Men from The Body Shop as they smell similar and both give off that clean laundry vibe.
