Fragrant Friday - CLEAN Reserve

CLEAN Reserve wants to change the way you experience fragrance with a collection of scents that highlight your individuality. They were created to be dynamic and evoke, not memories of the past, but possibilities and experiences yet to be discovered. Each is linear without much movement from top to bottom, making it ideal for layering and blending -  and possible to have a whole library of fragrances with a few bottles so you can easily change your scent with your mood!

Everything about the line evokes a feeling of naturalness and simplicity - from the clean lines of the bottles, to the no-nonsense labels to the wood caps - which helps clarify the brand's message of eco-conscious sustainability. But what I especially like is that the line makes it easy to mix and match and create a fragrance that is very individual because who wants to smell like everyone else? Even scents from the collection that I might not care for on their own become something very different and wearable when paired with another scent - making for endless possibilities!

Available at Sephora and sephora.ca.

  1. I love CLEAN perfumes so this is pretty exciting to see such a big expansion in their range! I guess this is kind of a take on Demeter's fragrance library concept?

    1. The same layering concept but much longer lasting! Let me know what you think once you smell them!
