What is the temperature outside for you right now? Even though I live in a northern state, at this very moment it is a steaming hot 93 degrees. I swear that if I cracked an egg on the black top right now it would fry up and sprout some bacon AND toast.
When it’s this hot I can’t do any sort of body product that feels heavy, including spray-on fragrance. What I am loving for scent are several items from the Clean Perfume Rollerball Collection I was recently sent to try, including Clean Skin and Clean Fresh Laundry.
Clean Rollerball Perfumes ($20) are long, skinny glass bottles with a rollerball applicator. It’s the same scent as the regular perfumes, but oh so convenient and just plain easier in hot weather. They are totally transportable so pop one in your beach bag to counter the ‘nice but I don’t really want to be wearing this’ scent of chlorine or lake water.
Clean Skin is fragrance, yes, but it’s subtle. It makes you just plain smell GOOD. Top notes include SHEER HONEYDEW, LOTUS BLOSSOM & FRESH AIR ACCORD. Mid-notes are DEWY PETALS, AQUATIC NOTES & BLUE ROSE, and base notes are WHITE MUSK, AMBER WOOD and CREAMY VANILLA. Just perfect on a super hot summer day…in fact the hotter it gets, the better this smells. It’s a mostly floral scent, but as body temps heat up, it sort of transforms and becomes more musky, soft, and clean. It is just what I want my skin to smell like when it’s hot and sticky out.
Talk about fresh and clean…I don’t think a fragrance gets as fresh and clean as this one does. Clean Fresh Laundry is amazing for helping me keep my cool, even after biking ten miles. Top notes include BRAZILIAN ORANGE, MEXICAN LIME & FRESH MOWN GRASS. Mid-notes are ROSE OTTO and NIGHT BLOOMING JASMINE, and base notes include HELIOTROPE and WOODY MUSK. The end result is somehow cool and warm…like a cool breeze mixed with the warmth from the clothes dryer.
The rollerball packaging is terrific, and the scents are wonderful. Clean Perfume has other rollerball scents too, including Shower Fresh, Air, Cool Cotton, Warm Cotton, and a pretty neat looking one that has Cool Cotton on one end and Warm Cotton on the other. You can find them online at CleanPerfume.com. – Lisa
