Summer is my favorite season. When the weather is balmy and I am relaxing outdoors, I savor every moment. When it isn’t summertime, I love fragrances that take me back to long, lazy days. CLEAN Perfume has two fabulous new summer splash scents that are summer nostalgia in a bottle – Summer Splash Warm Cotton Breeze and Summer Splash Sunkissed Skin.
CLEAN Perfume is a lifestyle brand that launched in 2003 with products that are simple, nostalgic, and eco-conscious. Some of my favorite all time scents are from CLEAN – Summer Sun, Summer Escape, Cotton T Shirt…it’s easy to see that I have a ‘type’! Their two new summer splash fragrances are beautiful scents to mist on before hot summer days and cool summer nights…or any other day during the year that you just wish it was summer.
CLEAN Warm Cotton Breeze is an interpretation of their Warm Cotton signature scent. This is a fun, playful version of the original. Top notes include aldehydes (these have a lemony/floral effect), mandarin orange, orange and bergamot; middle notes are lily-of-the-valley, hyacinth and pear blossom; and base notes are musk, amber and white wood.
Warm Cotton Breeze smells just like you think it should – bright and fresh, rather citrus but also warm from the amber and musk. When I smell this, it makes me think of that feeling I have after a long day playing at the beach — that perfect moment after showering, feeling fresh and clean and happy while watching the sun set.
I think I love CLEAN Summer Splash Sunkissed Skin even more. This has top notes of ozone, lotus and melon; middle notes of flowers, coconut and dew drop; and base notes of musk, amberwood and vanilla.
The fragrance smells like warm, bare skin in the midst of a flowering summer meadow. It’s a delicate, creamy scent that makes me think of bare feet, lazing in a swing, and drinking refreshing sweet tea.
These two scents are available at Ulta as a duo for $50. Be sure to pick this up – you will love both scents while in the moment and appreciate them even more after you made those memories! – Lisa
