Are you the kind of girl who delights in wearing a different fragrance every day of the week? Clean, a fragrance line known for their light scents and simple aesthetic, sure hopes so. Their new Coffret Set ($65) includes four of their signature scents in 1-oz bottles of eau de parfum.
Almost lighter than air, they make me float away on a fragrance cloud, and I feel like I can wear them anywhere, whether I’m just lounging around the house, going out to dinner with El Hub or attending a function for work.
Despite their lightness of being, each one lasts a good long time on my skin (about six hours). Even though they share similar citrus and floral notes and have the same just-out-of-the-shower vibe, they’re different enough to be distinct.
Speaking of variety, Clean Coffret oozes with possibilities. I like to layer them (although they also wear well by themselves), and my current crush involves starting with a layer of Warm Cotton, then adding layer of Shower Fresh topped with Simply Soap.
By itself, Shower Fresh reminds me of a pristine tropical waterfall; Clean is like crisp grapefruit, and Warm Cotton brings to mind fresh laundry, set outside to dry in the sun.
Sadly, Simply Soap and I don’t really get along. It starts with a lovely burst of violet and musk but takes on a slightly metallic scent after spending some time on my skin.
The Clean Coffret Set
- Shower Fresh: The most complex of the set, crisp, with notes of lemon, orange blossom, lily of the valley and jasmine
- Simply Soap: Newest of the Cleans, with bergamot, violet, musk, plumeria and Damask rose
- Clean: Bubbly and youthful yet sophisticated, with litsea cubeba (an evergreen shrub native to China), orange, lime, grapefruit, passion lily, rose geranium and white musk
- Warm Cotton: Its citrus, lilac, jasmine, amber and musk remind me of crisp sheets hanging outside on a hot summer’s day
Bargain hunters, if you’ve ever smelled one of Clean’s perfumes and thought to yourself, “I like this,” but didn’t pull the trigger because of the price, consider the Coffret Set.
A 1-oz bottle of Clean perfume at full price costs $38. Purchased individually, the four bottles here would run a whopping $152. In the set, they break down to $16.25 — about 60% off the regular price.
I’m thinking about breaking up the set and giving away the individual scents for Christmas. Hmm… That’s another way to stretch their value. Keep one scent for yourself, and give the other three as stocking stuffers. Makeup and Beauty Blog Rating: A
