Clean Reserve Avant Garden - An Enchanting Fragrance Collection

When it comes to fragrances, I know what it is I like but every now and again, I want something that pushes my boundaries and comfort zone.  Clean Reserve is a new collection of fragrances from the creators of Clean, a brand I have featured on my blog a few times with Blond Rose and Warm Cotton. The culmination of a unique, creative collaboration with three of the world's top fragrance houses chosen because of their commitment to sustainability and philanthropy and it has been created with responsibly sourced ingredients and eco-conscious manufacturing and packaging.

Clean Reserve Avant Garden - An Enchanting Fragrance Collection from CLEAN Reserve
When it comes to fragrances, most of us will like either floral, sweet, woody, citrus, fruity or something that sits in the middle. I pick a fragrance depending on my mood and sometimes depending on the weather outside, if it is hot and sunny then something light and fresh whereas as it is dark, gloomy something a little heavier.

The latest fragrance collection from the CLEAN Reserve is described as 'merging the structure of a traditional clean linear Eau de parfum with a luxurious niche approach, designed to transport you on a fantastical journey'.  CLEAN Reserve’s Avant Garden collection uses the finest ingredients grown and harvested responsibly from a farm in the South of France—with an added playful twist, 
“Our new CLEAN Reserve Avant Garden collection incorporates our foundation of eco-friendly ingredients into a luxurious olfactory experience. The result is undeniably unique and positions CLEAN for yet another year of strong consecutive global growth in the category,” said Gregory Black, president of Clean Beauty Collective.
So when White Amber & Warm Cotton was kindly gifted to me, I couldn't wait to give it a try.
Clean Reserve Avant Garden - An Enchanting Fragrance Collection
A fragrance which encapsulates the essence of Warm Cotton, which for me is a clean scented fragrance - think fresh bed sheets, your washing drying on the line, kind of clean and then with it comes a punchier floral note to give it a bit of a kick.  The two coming together to create a fragrance that is an unlikely match.  For me, the notes of a fragrance are important, you want to know what is in there and how it is going to work, for this one we have the top notes of Aldehydes, Cassis buds and Green Accords and the Cassis works to give it that fruity blackcurrant scent and alos hidden is a hint of Begamot that you really get after a few seconds.  The heart notes of Jasmine, Lillies and Peonies are an incredible inclusion for me, I adore anything which has Jasmine as a note and quite of my favourite fragrance includes it as a heart note.  Working with the heart notes are the base notes of White Musk, Amber and Clean Woods which come together to bring together a fragrance that is a warm floral with a spicy mix and I absolutely love it.  You need just the smallest spritz because it is so powerful a fragrance, but it is one which lasts the entire day, slowing drying down to a light powdery scent.
