I wasn’t planning on doing any Earth Day type posts this early but I just couldn’t wait to tell you about the new Clean Reserve fragrances! Clean has launched Clean Reserve, a new collection of nine “niche, authentic, sustainable and personal” fragrances. There are six new fragrances (Amber Saffron, Blonde Rose, Smoked Vetiver, Sueded Oud, Terra Woods and Velvet Flora) plus new “Reserve Blend” editions of three older Clean fragrances (Rain, Skin and Warm Cotton).

CLEAN Reserve is a luxury fragrance collection that believes in sustainable beauty. The 9 fragrances are blended with raw ingredients that are ethically harvested and manufactured with the lowest possible carbon footprint, all while giving back to their farmers, tribes and communities to sustain their crops and economies. The wood caps are sourced from Spain and made of wood from certified sustainably managed forests. The fragrances are manufactured in a facility that uses 100% solar energy and the glass bottle is 100% recyclable. What could be better than that?

Each CLEAN Reserve fragrance was created with the opposite of what we are used to in a fragrance. Not evoke memories of the past, but open possibilities and experiences yet to be discovered. I just love this philosophy!

Each scent tells its own story through its sustainable ingredient. I had the opportunity to try Velvet Flora, a sophisticated and alluring fragrance that exudes brightness and confidence. Floral fragrance with a distinctive twist. The sustainable ingredient is Bergamot Oil – Supports the farmers of southern Italy and their commitment to the natural extraction of Bergamot Oil. “We advocate development and production of the quality of Bergamot through eco-conscious education and the continuous purchase of their elegantly light, romantic floral oils.”  

  • Top notes are: Green Bergamot
  • Middle Notes: Jasmine, Lily, Saffron Flower
  • Base Notes: Cedarwood Moss, Musk, Ambery Patchouli

The perfumer was inspired by effortless elegant and poise and that really shines through in this fragrance. The unique contrast of bright bergamot and leathery woods, captures a sparkling freshness and mixes it with warmth. I admit when I think of the Clean brand I think of simple household-fresh type scents (warm cotton anyone?), however Velvet Flora was a nice departure.  Yes, it has fruity and floral notes but it is so much more. The base notes give it a warm woody feel that brings a sophistication and elegance absent in the regular line. I am so impressed with this fragrance!

Clean encourages layering with this new line. Each fragrance has suggested pairings with other scents within the line printed right on the bottle. This allows you to mix and layer to create something completely different. This allows you little menu giving you layering and mix ideas for each fragrances. Suggested pairings for Velvet Flora are Terra Woods, Amber Saffron and Sueded Oud.

    I don’t wear perfume, but I am sure those are lovely!

  2. I have samples of Velvet Flora, Sueded Oud, and Blonde Rose. On me, Velvet Flora is so similar to my favorite – Coco Mademoiselle – that it doesn’t make sense for me to purchase a full size. Interesting though that they suggest pairing with the Sueded Oud. Will have to try that out. The Blonde Rose is the knock out of the park for me. Floral, but more woodsy. Very sophisticated, and not a familiar scent, which to me makes it appealing. I don’t like purchasing big name perfumes, since I don’t like to smell like every one else. Coco is the only well known fragrance that I keep coming back to.

  3. I haven’t heard of Clean Reserve fragrances before but glad to now. I bet they all smell yummy but I think I’d like to try the Blonde Rose.

  4. This is new to me but I always try something new.

  5. That’s really amazing. This is the first time I’ve heard of Clean Reserve and how it’s made. The scents are really making me curious!

    CLEAN Reserve is a pretty new brand for me, but I am just loving that they have fragrance products in 9 different varieties which means anyone can get one of their taste. I am going to try out few of them!

  11. This sounds like a really cool brand. I like the idea of mixing fragrances and it not smelling like poison! lol
