    Default What is the cleanest, soapiest, fresh out of the shower frag out there?

    I'm looking for a soapy clean and fresh scent that will last. Prada Infusion d' Homme is close to perfect for this role but is just a bit sweet and goes a little toward the feminine side, though I still love it.

    I have read great things about Mugler Cologne, but I can't quite make up my mind. I was just wondering what else fits the bill.

    I have Rive Gauche PH on the way to me, which seems fresh in a different way.

    I'd say Mugler Cologne, of the ones I've tried. After that, Gendarme; but I prefer Mugler right now.

    Prada is too strong for me. It smells like I used a very, very strong smelling soap, and I don't like it any more.
    Current Top Five:

    1. Creed Green Irish Tweed
    2. Tom Ford Neroli Portofino
    3. Hermes Concentre d'Orange Verte
    4. Bond No. 9 New Haarlem
    5. Creed Original Vetiver

    Ah yes, I was just looking at Gendarme as well.

    I will also have a look at Moustache and Musc Nomade. Though I am reading that Moustache has a civet scent?

    Mugler is great... casual fresh out of the shower
    Prada Amber pour homme is a more sophisticated take and I think more manly than Prada Infusion d' Homme

    I'm playing with you. Moustache is one of the dirtiest smells ever bottles. Musc Nomade, as the name might suggest, is rather musky, a very acrid musk at that.

    Mugler cologne, Gendarme, Tom Ford Neroli Portofino, Creed Original Vetiver & Prada Amber pour homme all fit the bill. The best values out of these would be Mugler and Gendarme IMO. Gendarme is probably the "simplest" and least feminine of the group. Generally, though, the clean/soapy scents could all be considered unisex. My favorite out of the bunch, just based on smell alone, is Neroli Portofino. It's also the most expensive per ml unfortunately.

    To me, it takes the best of Mugler & Gendarme & leaves out the "worst" (although neither really have "bad" elements). I like the prada, but it's not really an every day for me and is more of a "dress up" fragrance. Creed OV has a similar smell/vibe to Mugler, but if it weren't for the price, many would prefer it to the Mugler. I'd suggest getting samples of all, or at least a few of these and see which one wears best on your skin. Good luck...the "soapy" scents are some of my go-to favorites when I just want a break from the heavier stuff, or simply want to smell fresh & clean and nothing else.

    Okay, I admit to my gullibility, because I was totally looking into those two!

    I also suggest Neroli Portofino. It has a great Neroli note that is backed by some citrus while remaining very fresh and suprisingly light with good longevity overall.

    I also really enjoy Original Vetiver. It's sort of like Mugler cologne, but I think the OV is much better.

    Many great scents has already been mentioned! Especially Mugler cologne, Gendarme (try both the Gendarmes for men and Gendarme Carrierre since clean scents are easily unisex as fit&frag'd mentioned), Nasomatto Silver Musk, Acca Kappa Muschio Bianco (affordable!). I'd like to add Il Profumo Musc Bleu (really smells like soap) and Escentric Molecules "Molecule 02" which isn't a classic clean fragrance but smells divine. Good luck!

    To add a few that haven't been mentioned yet..

    MFK Aqua Universalis/Forte
    L'eau Serge Lutens
    Tauer Orange Star

    All three smell like a laundromat.

    Yes . . . I like Infusion d'Homme and it is practically perfect for clean, soapy and fresh.

    After that I'd reach for:

    Eaux de Caron Pure http://www.basenotes.net/ID26120545.html

    Versace Baby Blue Jeans http://www.basenotes.net/ID26120154.html

    Or, failing all else . . . this:
