We are all familiar with saying "April Showers bring May Flowers." A classic phrase that evokes the image of delicate new flower buds, dripping with fresh spring rainwater, paired with the sweet smell of new life in the air. But have you ever stopped to consider why we glorify those April showers in the first place?
As it turns out April is not the wettest month of the year… *cue the shock and awe*
It can tend to feel like the rain comes more frequently in April, potentially because it is the first time in a few months that we start consistently getting those spring showers. But, it is undeniable that April is the start of the growing season: when spring really hits the ground running. While we’ve proven that the season’s warmer weather is key for plants to begin to thrive, it turns out that flower buds aren’t as picky about temperature as leaf buds are. For a plant to flower, it is more important that there is rain to break down the nutrients in the soil to make them available for the plant to access, enabling the blooming process. What do you know? The classic phrase is backed by science.
But plants aren’t the only beings to benefit from a spot of rain. Rain also has a positive effect on our mood and well-being. The sound of rain falling can be soothing and calming, and the fresh smell of rain in the air can be invigorating. Plus getting caught in a brisk spring shower is the perfect excuse to take a long, hot, relaxing shower… not that you ever really need an excuse.
Whether you tend to be a mad-dash-before-work showerer, or a spend-extra-time-having-that-“everything shower” (you know the one, where you use all your products and spend extra time grooming, lathering and all that good stuff), we made our CLEAN CLASSIC Shower Fresh fragrance to capture the essence of a warm and energizing shower. And just like in real life, it pairs beautifully with CLEAN CLASSIC Rain.
CLEAN CLASSIC Shower Fresh opens with refreshing citrus top notes of lemon, mandarin and orange to awaken your senses, like that first step into the water stream. As the scent settles, the middle notes: lily of the valley, orange blossom and jasmine, create a delicate but powerful bouquet, reminiscent of your favorite shampoo or body wash. Although we’re secretly partial to our Buriti & Tucuma Essential Shampoo and Buriti & Aloe Purifying Body Wash. And let's not forget the base notes of musk and sheer woods that ground the scent, like stepping out of your luxurious shower and wrapping yourself in a cozy and warm towel, fresh out of the dryer. All together, CLEAN CLASSIC Shower Fresh will leave you feeling fresh, clean and reinvigorated.
But it’s not just that experience that sets it apart. CLEAN CLASSIC Shower Fresh, just like the full shower experience, is universal and unisex, perfect for any shower lover, anywhere. Not only is our goal to make you feel good wearing a linear scent you love that will last you all day long, but we want you to be able to trust that our ingredients are vetted and vegan, our packaging is recyclable, and our processes are cruelty-free. After all, we all want to feel good and do better!
If you’re looking for a little bit more of a unique, personalized and signature scent, you can try layering (a perfume term for mixing) CLEAN CLASSIC Shower Fresh and CLEAN CLASSIC Rain. It becomes the perfect scent to bring a little bit of that springtime freshness into your day, no matter the weather outside. So whether you’re one to embrace the rain, wait for the April showers to pass, or just enjoy every day as it comes, CLEAN CLASSIC Shower Fresh is the perfect pick-me-up on any day.
