Whether on a plane, in a car, on a bus or a train, the very best and kindest thing you can do is to smell clean. Overt fragrances -- think some broad-shouldered '80's broad trailing Oriental spice perfume from one room to another -- don't win you friends in closed conveyances.
A truly modern concept when it comes to fragrance comes from Clean. I was happy to be hosted to experience some of their scents! They are variations of what it smells to be clean -- such as fresh out of the shower, freshly laundered clothes, the smell of clean in different seasons, etc. Many of the scents are unisex, because everyone likes to smell clean! I would also describe this an ageless scent: I think it's just as appropriate for a teen as for a jet-setter as for a sassy and youthful senior.
The scents also come in petite rollerball sizes, which is absolutely perfect for a carry-on 3-1-1 bag. After a long haul flight, you want to refresh -- not overwhelm!
These are the notes for Cool Cotton scent:
Italian Bergamot, Crisp Green Apple, Lemon Zest
Mimosa Blossom, Cooling Mint, Fresh Cotton Accord
Creamy Musks, Peach Skin, Amber Droplet
The effect I noticed was clean and faint sharp citrus peel notes, not sweet and fruity, but briskly tangy. It's definitely a fresh unisex scent.
These are the notes for Warm Cotton scent:
Citrus & Verbena
Fruity, Orange Flower & Marine
Fougere, Amber & Musk
I noticed a folded laundry scent with warmth, soft florals.
There's a special rollerball that combines Warm Cotton with Cool Cotton, which is absolutely genius for traveling: something for every mood!
Here are the notes for Fresh Laundry:
Brazilian Orange, Mexican Lime & Fresh Mown Grass
Rose Otto & Night Blooming Jasmine
Heliotrope & Woody Musk
I think of the scent as laundry that's been put away for awhile, but still has the comforting, lingering fragrance of favorite sheets and blankies.
Shower Fresh scent is described as being "citrusy and bright yet subtly sexy. A crisp but understated, intessential soapy scent. " Here are its notes:
Lemon, Mandarin & Orange
Lily of the Valley, Orange Blossom & Jasmine
Musk & Sheer Woods
It's got a real Spring freshness, herbal and fruit-juicy at the same time.
Skin may be my favorite of the scents I tried! Its notes are:
Sheer Honeydew, Lotus Blossom & Fresh Air Accord
Dewy Petals, Aquatic Notes & Blue Rose
White Musks, Amber Wood & Creamy Vanilla
It's soft, creamy and warm, but very subtle and still very clean. It's like a person wearing clean clothes, with grassy notes and wildflowers.
Rain is quite a unique scent. Its notes are:
Dewy Melon, Daffodil & Watermint
Spring Daisy, Water Lily & Violet Leaves
Fluid Musks, Sleek Woods
I noticed freshly rained-on vegetal notes, fresh ion notes, crispness.
