Review: Face Candy Favorite- CLEAN Perfume

The Original Clean Eau de Parfum ($76) is a fragrance option for those who do not like to smell like a particular perfume, but rather prefer that just-out-of-the-shower fresh smell. CLEAN combines fragrance notes of Litsea Cubeba, Orange, Sweet Lime, Pink Grapefruit, Passion Lily, Rose Geranium and White Musk. Also available in a 1 oz. travel size ($36.)

Warm Cotton Eau de Parfum ($76) So pure, so fresh, it captures the feeling of a fluffy, warm towel just pulled from the dryer or slipping into your favorite T-shirt line-dried in the summer sun. CLEAN Warm Cotton wraps you in notes of citrus, lilac and jasmine over a subtle but oh-so-sexy blend of amber and musk. A fresh, comforting, just-laundered scent. Also available in a 1 oz. travel size ($36.)

Shower Fresh Eau de Parfum ($76)
This uplifting CLEAN scent opens with crisp, citrus top notes of Lemon, Mandarin, And Orange. The heart of the fragrance is faintly floral, hinting at sweetness with notes of Lily of the Valley, Orange Blossom, and Jasmine. The drydown is an understated musk and sheer woods base. Not heavy, overwhelming or pretentious, Shower Fresh Perfume is simply sweet and subtly sexy; a revolutionary aroma that leaves one feeling "shower-fresh" from sun up to sun down. Also available in a 1 oz. travel size ($36) and at Sephora, a .34 oz. roller ball ($22)- perfect for the purse.

I've never quite been a "perfume person." I like the way some smell, but I hate anything too overpowering. That's why I was so excited when I got to sample these babies. They smell pure and simple, just like soap (only better than your typical Irish Spring.) Over the past couple weeks, I've been rotating them daily to see which one I like the most. And of these 3, I think my favorite would be Shower Fresh. It's light, fresh, watery- and seriously, I think you could spray yourself with it 50 times and still not be over-doing it. All of the scents are delightful, but since there are so many, I'd definitely recommend going into one of the stores and testing them all.

Side Note: My Fiance was sitting next to me when the fragrances first arrived. He asked me, as I sprayed each box with its corresponding scent, "What's the deal with this smelly shit?" After I told him it was a whole line based on the smell of soap, he sniffed all 3 of them again, and said, "Hm... That's actually not a bad idea. I like them... all. Tell your blog that it's got my seal of approval." So there you have it. Kyle tested, fiance approved.

Sorry I am so attached to musk oil and can not see me changing because of the length of time I have used this particular perfume. Night musk is another of my favorites. I love the oil base because it lasts longer.

Oooh sounds lovely. I love that clean smell. Sometimes full on fragrance is what you want, but at other times something delicate and fresh will do.
