While it’s fun to have a few fragrances that turn heads with an incredible sillage, for many people, extremely bold scents can be overbearing to the senses. Whether you’re someone who gets perfume headaches or simply work in an environment where you have to be mindful of strong smells, sometimes you need something more suitable for every day. Enter: Clean Reserve fragrances.
Created by the brand Clean Beauty Collective, this collection of scents are meant to be layered, which means they are much milder when spritzed alone. Not to be confused with its Clean Classic line, the brand’s first fragrances launched back in 2003, the Reserve lineup features what it calls “farm-to-formula” sustainability practices, focusing on ingredients that give back to farmers and their communities. This is evident in all of its star ingredients across any number of scents. For example, in one of its most popular perfumes, “Skin,” the company ethically sources vanilla from Madagascar, in support of its program that provides drinking water wells and medical facilities for the farming communities and supports reforestation projects.
Each Clean Reserve perfume formula has a similar story, alongside eco-friendly packaging made from recyclable glass bottles and caps made from sustainable wood. If you’re ready to start your own Clean Reserve perfume collection, we rounded up the best scents that the line has to offer. From warm, musky notes to clean, soapy florals, read ahead for the best Clean Reserve perfumes.
