Clean has recently expanded its range with a new luxury, eco-conscious fragrance collection called Clean Reserve. Made with sustainable ingredients and manufactured in a 100% solar energy-powered facility, the collection consists of nine unique scents that can be worn on their own or layered with each other. Today I have Amber Saffron and Blonde Rose to share with you. To read on, click......
Clean Reserve Eau de Parfume
The Bottle:
Housed in a clear and simple recyclable glass bottle, the Clean Reserve perfumes feels super modern yet luxurious. The cube-shaped wooden cap is actually made with wood sourced from sustainably-managed forests of Spain. Each bottle is housed in a gorgeous gift-ready storage box. Even the corn-derived cellophane wrapper is fully compostable.
Clean Reserve Amber Saffron Eau de Parfum
Clean Reserve Amber Saffron Eau de Parfum ($125 for 100ml):

Top Notes: Bergamot, artemisia, mandarin oil.
Heart Notes: Rose, lily, raspberry.
Base Notes: Musk, saffron, amber.

Amber Saffron opens with a quick flash of refreshing bergamot and florals that very quickly settles into an irresistibly warm and comforting woody musk. The scent reminds me of cozy winter days by the fire or curling up under the blanket on a rainy day. If you love a spicy and subtly sweet scent that's both elegant and welcoming, then definitely give this one a try!
Clean Reserve Blonde Rose Eau de Parfum
Clean Reserve Blonde Rose Eau de Parfum ($125 for 100ml):

Top Notes: Aldehyde, watery accords, lime.
Heart Notes: Rose, peony, jasmine.
Base Notes: Cedarwood, sandalwood, musk.

To my nose, Blonde Rose is a very sophisticated green floral. In fact, upon first trying it, the scent reminded me a lot of Chanel No. 19, which has been my favorite fragrance for years. Although any scent with lime tends to smell a bit "summer cocktail"-y to me, the lime in this one was hardly detectable. The floral notes combined with the aldehyde and water accords form a really refreshing scent, added with just a touch of warmth from the woods and musks. Although not quite on the same spectrum as Amber Saffron, Blonde Rose is still a very calming and welcoming scent, but this one is definitely more for fans of cool-tone florals. This collection overall has such a luxurious vibe; despite having such simple packaging and bottle design, Clean Reserve manages to be both elegant and highly-covetable.

Clean Reserve is available exclusively at Sephora and Sephora online.
