The CLEAN Difference

Eagle-eyed CLEAN shoppers will notice Rain, Skin, and Warm Cotton scents can be found in all three of our fragrance collections. But do you know the difference between each blend? Read on to learn more about our unique fragrances. 

The Basics

First, it’s important to establish the differences between our collections. 

  • CLEAN CLASSIC is our simplest collection. Each scent is light, understated, and easy to wear alone or layered with another fragrance. 

  • CLEAN RESERVE is our farm-to-fragrance collection. These perfumes are a little more complex and each feature a sustainably-sourced ingredient. They’re also 100% unisex and ideal for layering. 

  • CLEAN RESERVE Avant Garden is our most luxe collection. Our perfumers have already done the layering for you, and each sophisticated blend boasts at least three sustainable ingredients. 

Armed with this information, it becomes a little easier to see how scents like Rain, Skin, and Warm Cotton differ across the board. However, let’s dive deeper into each one to uncover the nuances. 

Rain 

CLEAN CLASSIC Rain is our most simple Rain scent. It’s a crisp and fresh scent with notes of Dewy Melon, Spring Daisy, and Water Lily that feels like stepping through a refreshing outdoor shower. 

CLEAN RESERVE Rain is a little more complex than its CLASSIC counterpart thanks to base notes like Patchouli and Rainforest Vetiver that transport you straight to the Amazon. Speaking of Rainforest Vetiver, we sustainably source this fragrant plant from Haiti and give back to the country’s farming communities by funding education and health care resources. 

CLEAN RESERVE Avant Garden Galbanum & Rain is our most luxurious Rain creation and one that features six sustainable ingredients. Galbanum (an aromatic gum resin) and White Moss give this fragrance a rich, earthy depth. Just a spritz of this scent will conjure up images of a moss-covered, flower-dense, enchanted forest. 

Skin 

CLEAN CLASSIC Skin is the lightest and most layerable Skin scent. Creamy Vanilla evokes the essence of bare skin while Lotus Blossom and Honeydew give it a floral freshness. Think of CLEAN CLASSIC Skin as the must-have in your layering arsenal for adding warmth to your favorite fragrances.

CLEAN RESERVE Skin also finds its base in Vanilla but this time the beans are sustainably-sourced from Madagascar. By purchasing this Vanilla, we help fund community initiatives that provide safe drinking water and medical facilities. Other standout notes in this blend include Sunkissed Peony and Salted Praline which give it a touch of sensuality and make it ideal for your next date night. 

CLEAN RESERVE Avant Garden Muguet & Skin offers even more depth and seduction. It features elegant flowers like Muguet and Heliotrope, a kick of Cardamom sustainably-sourced from Guatemala, and three other sustainable notes: Jasmine, Clearwood, and Patchouli. Reach for this opulent bottle when you have a special occasion coming up, like a wedding or anniversary. 

Warm Cotton

CLEAN CLASSIC Warm Cotton is inspired by the comforting scent of newly laundered tees straight from the dryer. Sheer notes of Citrus and Orange Flowers give it a clean comfort.

CLEAN RESERVE Warm Cotton is a more relaxing blend, crafted to feel like slipping into fresh sheets at your favorite luxury hotel. It finds its warmth in spicy notes like Ginger and Pepper, as well as sustainable Benzoin. We source this balsamic sweet resin from Laos and our commitment supports the country’s long-term plans for sustainable development initiatives.

CLEAN RESERVE Avant Garden White Amber & Warm Cotton features Cassis Buds and Lilies for a mood-enhancing brightness, while rich Amber and graceful Peony give it a sumptuous edge. Sustainably-sourced Mandarin, Bergamot, and Sandalwood round out this blend. Combined, these notes evoke the feeling of stepping into a fluffy bathrobe after an invigorating shower.
