    Question How do you feel about the house of CLEAN?

    I'm wearing the fragrance Warm Cotton right now and I love the smell. But I'd be interested to know how BN'ers feel about this house and particular fragrance.

    The only one I have tried to date is Clean Man which I believe is an older one, and didn't much care for it.

    My wife wears the women's Cotton and it is very nice from beginning to end. The quality seems good, so if you enjoy one of their fragrances, go for it.

    I have not smelled Warm cotton. Those that I smelled seemed a bit too literal (in the sense of cleaning product). From the name, warm cotton sounds like a white musk.

    Smelled what was in stock at Sephora. Thought most of what I smelled was fine. But nothing struck me as a must-have in the moment.

    My bit,

    If you tend to enjoy or require perfumes such as Gendarme or Mugler Cologne then Clean should certainly be on your audition list.

    I do enjoy that genre (and I suspect we all *need* to select something in that vein once in a while due to the specifics of the day) and Clean has variations that suit the goal very well.

    I've liked most every one I've sampled and am on the fence about pulling the trigger on Clean Ultimate, which is the standard bearer of their philosophy (it's up against Gendarme EDP which I don't own, but have used 200ml or so of the edt).

    I also just got a sample of their Shower Fresh from their "Clean for Men" label and it seems very enjoyable.

    Good luck hunting,

    I agree that most offerings have that household cleaner vibe.While well blended, they end up smelling of drier sheets.The reserved line is definitely a grade above the others though. In fact if my SO didn't object to it, Sueded Oud could nearly become a signature scent for me. If you are interested in this line, the reserved fragrances are worth checking out.
