    L'Eau by Serge Lutens reminds me of the smell of dishwashing liquid and detergent.

    Joop Nightflight Sooo much like some cleaner we used to add to a bucket of water for mopping floors when I was in the military.
    After several tries, due to good reviews claiming what a great fresh scent Nightflight is, I just can't get past this chemical cleaner association.

    Bleu de Chanel definitely shares some notes with Windex glass cleaner - I use both though and like them about the same.

    This Trickle Down Effect has been going on for years. Many Toilet cleaners, and AIr Fresheners, and All Purpose cleaners smell like Cool Water, because Cool Water was such a successful fragrance.

    Many of the cheaper rose/oud combos smell like air fresheners but louder.

    At one college that I went to, the air freshener smelled a lot like Le Male.

    And this was five years ago.
    It's really quite pleasant, except for the smell (...)

    This is so true! I was at a friend's house and I offered to help with the dishes after dinner. I couldn't help noticing that her dish soap smelled like a fragrance I know... but I couldn't figure out which fragrance I was thinking of. It was nice though. I asked what kind of dish soap she used and she had no idea. She buys whatever's on sale, pours it into a soap dispenser and tosses the bottle. Whatever it was, it smelled surprisingly good.

    Lemon is a smell many associate with household cleaners since so many of them use it. I'm sure that's why AHS Edition Blanche smells like a cleaning product to me.

    Perhaps you're actually thinking of Glass Plus Sport Pour Homme Eau Extreme.

    ...just a guess.

    Platinum Egoiste if you're able to smell through the initial lively fougere impression. The stuff always reminds me of several bottles I've acquired that have gone off due to heat, light and oxygen exposure and have made me question whether or not I ever wanted to wear a fragrance again.

    I guess you all haven't tried Heir by Paris Hilton. This is the EPITOME of house cleaner aroma.

    My Ultimate Top 5:

    Fahrenheit (1988)
    Le Vetiver Itasca (2010)
    Arpege pour Homme (2005)
