I’m super picky when it comes to smells. I like to smell good, but it’s hard for me to find one that I like; subtle, not fruity, not flowery and just clean. (Really, I’ve always described the smells I like as clean).
CLEAN perfume hit the nail on the head for me. They launched in 2003. They wanted exactly my dream smell; a different kind of perfume with a scent that was fresh and pure – inspired by a simple bar of soap.
Even better? Their products are eco-friendly with eco-conscious packaging, no animal testing, and hypoallergenic formulas! And, the packaging is even clean and simple. I would pick this up off the shelf just because the packaging looks how I would expect it to smell.

Of all of the fragrances, I had two favorites, one is the Original CLEAN and the second (and my most favorite) is CLEAN Ultimate! It combines juicy notes of Italian Bergamot and Provencal Lemon with Lavender, Jasmine, White Rose and Muguet, and then intertwines them with sensual Neroli and Musk to create a fragrance experience filled with freshness, warmth and depth. A clean, subtle, yet sensual scent. <- They wrote that description. I would say it smells like awesomeness. And, when I wear it, I’m constantly smelling myself. It’s almost relaxing.
In addition to all of the yummy smells, I also tried out the CLEAN Original Moisture-Absorbent Deodorant. It uses exclusive Cotton Vantage™ technology helps to absorb moisture naturally, without aluminum. It has time-released CLEAN fragrance smell good and stay fresh all day.
Clinical Results: In an antiperspirant grade, sweat collection test, CLEAN Deodorant reduced wetness 18-22% over 6 hours. Most aluminum-based antiperspirants reduce 30-35%. So even without aluminum, CLEAN deodorant reduces almost as much wetness.
I really like how this smells, and the fact that it’s aluminum free. For somebody who is a really heavy sweater, this really did keep me dry. However, I’m a rare case of a person that is allergic to one of the ingredients. Everything else about it was great, and I’m bummed that I had a reaction, but it really is awesome (I also have super duper sensitive skin).
I also tested out the dry shampoo with the CLEAN original fragrance. It also uses exclusive Cotton Vantage™ to keep my hair looking clean between washings. I’m used to using a spray dry shampoo, so shaking the powder out of the spout was a bit of an adjustment. I just shake a little on the roots of my hair and sort os shake it around with my fingers to disperse it in my hair. It refreshes the smell and helps with the oil at the roots.
I am very happy with the CLEAN fragrance and happily shared some with my sister, too, who also enjoyed it!
