With Earth Day just passed and Mother’s Day coming soon, it’s the perfect time to tell you about CLEAN Reserve fragrances ($95 for 3.4 fl.oz.) from the eponymous fragrance line CLEAN. About this time last year, the brand launched CLEAN Reserve, a collection of nine “niche, authentic, sustainable and personal” fragrances. There are six fragrances (Amber Saffron, Blonde Rose, Smoked Vetiver, Sueded Oud, Terra Woods and Velvet Flora) plus “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 to evoke memories of the past, but open possibilities and experiences yet to be discovered. What a lovely philosophy!

I had the opportunity to try CLEAN Reserve Skin, a bouquet of vanilla orchid and sun kissed peony that creates a sensation of cozy- blanket warmth, complemented by delicate notes of orange blossom and a touch of sweet honeysuckle. The perfumer was inspired by the feeling of a warm embrace and a loving touch making this particular fragrance perfect for Mother’s Day gift. Give Mom the hugs and kisses she gave to you as a child–such a beautiful sentiment for a gift!

The sustainable ingredient in this fragrance is Copaiba Oil. According to Harry Fremont, the perfumer “Working directly with communities in the Amazon and providing them with technical and financial support ensures the sustainable sourcing of Copaiba Oil, a deep sensual oil that forms the heart of the Reserve Blend of Skin.”

CLEAN Reserve Skin EDP has top notes of fresh musks, middle notes of warm skin accord and tonka bean and base notes of salted praline. The sweetness of the base note is tempered by the top notes of fresh musk. By fresh musk I mean there is a hint of green absent in most musk scents so that it’s not too heavy. The tonka bean brings a lovely warmth to the mix. The praline is barely detectable but it adds dimension to the perfume which keeps it from smelling like a run-of-the-mill white musk scent. For me, this unique combination lends sophistication and elegance to the juice.

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. The suggested pairing for Reserve Blend Skin is Rain. I’d love to try that!

CLEAN Reserve Skin EDP makes an excellent Mother’s Day gift, though a little pricey what mother wouldn’t want a warm embrace from her child that lasts longer than a few seconds?

  5. Marcie in Mommyland says

    Ooh! I’m in love with those bottles. If they smell half as good as they look, I’m sold!

  6. Splurging for my mom on a favorite bottle of perfume was my go-to gift for years. She loves scent and wears it every time she leaves the house. Not sure this scent would be hers but Clean has such a beautiful selection of scents that I could easily find one to her liking!

  7. Vanilla and peony??? In glass and wood? Be still my quickly beating heart! I have to find these!!

  8. Karen Yannacio Morse says

    I have always-always-always loved CLEAN scents. But, I had no idea about the wooden caps from Spain. Or that they were so mindful about being sustainable! Love that!

  9. Kristina says

    So neat! I’ve never heard of this before! I’ll have to look into it and may get it to add into my mom’s gift basket for Mothers Day!

  10. This seems like a really nice fragrance! My mom love fragrances that don’t smell fruity and this is perfect.

  15. Jeanine @ says

    This sounds really great. I really love the packaging, it looks really great. I would love to check it out!

  16. This sounds like a great smell. I have to be very careful with perfumes, and the like, as I have super sensitive skin, and my allergies are awful.

  17. That sounds like a delightful fragrance! I love the smell of vanilla, and I’m not a fan of overwhelming perfumes. I like that this is a clean and simple scent!

  18. What pretty packaging! The fragrance sounds delightful, vanilla is one of my favorite scents and these sound very light and pleasant.

  19. Heather Staggs Garcia says

    Open the possibilities yet to be discovered…i love that idea! I also like that you can mix them to create your own signature scent.

  20. Amanda Love says

    This sounds amazing and it would be such a lovely gift for mothers this coming Mother’s Day. I think it’s awesome that you can create a completely different fragrance.

  21. This sounds wonderful. I’m sure my mom would love this for Mother’s Day. So would I!

  22. I love fresh clean scents. A new perfume is on my list for Mothers Day so I’ll take a look at these. Thanks.

  23. Rachel Catherine says

    I’ve heard these fragrances are great! I love clean and fresh scents so I have to fins these.

  24. Roxanne Ferber says

    This is the first I’ve heard of Clean Skin Reserve and I think it sounds amazing! I have such a difficult time wearing fragrances due to allergies. I’d love to find out how these would work!
