The new Clean Reserve Fragrance Collection isn’t a cheaper range but it is one that’s looking very, very promising. And I have to met the best $22 I spent was on the Clean Reserve Discovery Layering Set as this was such a steal and not only let me try out ALL the Clean Reserve Fragrances but also allowed me to play mixologist and create endless unique creations by combining these nine fragrances.

Seriously, you need this set.

The Clean Reserve Discovery Layering Set is an introduction into the new Clean Reserve Fragrance Collection. It includes a sample size mist that’s 0.05 oz in size of each of the nine fragrances in this collection. At a glance, I guess I was excited and didn’t notice, I didn’t realize that these weren’t sample vials but they were sample mists. I was quite relieved when my set arrived that I didn’t have to struggle to open tiny vials but instead had mess-free mist bottles to use.

The set comes housed in a very sturdy cardboard box so if you’re gifting a friend or family member something for Valentine’s Day this set is presented in a very nice packaging.

Each of the Reserve Fragrances is $90 each so they aren’t exactly a cheap. Getting this set allows you to weed through the fragrances to see which are keepers and which you might need full bottles of (so far it’s looking like I need full bottles of everything as they all smell good!).

The Clean Reserve Discovery Layering Set

The best part about this set is it includes a little menu giving you layering and mix ideas for each fragrances. It provides suggestions on which fragrances go well together so you can create an entirely unique fragrance using 1, 2, 3, or more fragrances. I love the concept that each fragrance will work with another in the line to create something entirely different. Variety, after all, is the spice of life and this gives you endless ways to create new fragrances.

The set includes:

  • Sueded Oud is a fresh and creamy approach to a traditional oud fragrance.
  • Terra Woods smells alive with crisp and zesty notes, and is freshened further with water and air to move into a natural floralcy.
  • Smoked Vetiver is the most masculine fragrance of the collection. It has a smoky sweetness that’s fresh, inviting, and sexy.
  • Amber Saffron is an irresistibly fresh blend of red fruits, delicate florals, soothing musks, warm amber and exquisite saffron.
  • Velvet Flora captures the unique contrast of bergamot and leathery woods, awakening the senses with freshness and warmth.
  • Rain is created from an unexpected combination of a fruity floral notes blended with fresh patchouli vetiver and musks.
  • Skin depicts the tenderness and soft intimacy of a warm embrace””a blended combination of comforting salty sweetness.
  • Warm Cotton envelops you in the irresistible freshness of translucent florals and the soft feel of skin-loving musks for the ultimate feeling of luxurious comfort.

So far the ones I’ve tried have had excellent sillage with a lasting wear and a good throw but they are soft and delicate enough not to overwhelm or overpower but still will have people asking, “Wow, what are you wearing!?”

Clean has always been a very favorite fragrance line of mine but I think they really outdid themselves with this new launch and I love that I can try all the fragrances at such a low cost.

About the Muse

Isabella MuseIsabella is just an average everyday geeky girl who doesn’t blend her eyeshadow correctly, wears too much blush, and hopes she never finds her holy grail products because she likes the thrill of the chase so much. Her mission is to bring you super honest reviews on makeup, skincare, fragrance and all things beauty. She’s in no way an expert on the topic and she sure as hell isn’t a super model. But she’s passionate about makeup and is seeking like-minded individuals that like pina coladas, getting caught in the rain, and ones that enjoy spending hundreds of dollars at Sephora without feeling buyer’s remorse.

    Muse, I swear we have such similar interests! I was eyeing this set and the Commodity Cocktail Set just yesterday. I haven’t made up my mind which one to try. The Commodity set has 10 sprays with .067 in each. Have you tried the Commodity fragrances?

    • Isabella Muse

      haha Len! πŸ™‚ I got that set too! I haven’t tried any of the Commodity scents because they scared me a little so this was the ideal way to try them! I actually haven’t tried my cocktail set yet but I’m curious if I’ll love πŸ˜€ Did you also see the Tokyo Milk one? I just posted about it, that’s another fab set! I love these sample sets Sephora is doing!

      • Len

        Of course you did hehe. Well I look forward to hearing about it when you try it. I just saw the Tokyo Milk post I have been curious about those as well. I need to make up my mind and order a set before the triple points end.

        Thanks Muse

        • Isabella Muse

          haha! I’m bad! πŸ™‚ But it’s such a great way to not spend a ton on something I’d hate πŸ˜€ Hurry hurry hurry! πŸ˜€ I’d get the Clean one if possible, that’s the best one I’ve tried so far, don’t get me wrong the Tokyo Milk one is awesome as well but I really loved how I could create 100’s of different blends with the Clean set!

          • Len

            Yes such a good deal especially since they are sprays which make me think they last longer! LOL.
            thanks for the rec!!

          • Isabella Muse

            haha you can trick yourself into believing that but man they go fast πŸ˜€ But hey, at least you can weed through and see which you like right?! πŸ˜€ LMK which one you go with! curious minds!

    I got the travel size version ($45) just before Christmas and have been using it almost daily. My favorites right now are Blonde Rose + Sueded Oud.

  • Susan K.

    This looks interesting. Haven’t been in Sephora for a while. so… LOL! Thanks, Miss Muse!

  • Amber K.

    I bought this as soon as it showed up on the website. I love Clean fragrances, but these are a million times better than I expected. They are so complex and beautiful. I also grabbed the larger $45 set when it came back in stock as well. I’m addicted to layering and mixing fragrances, so this set is perfect.

    • Isabella Muse

      I’m glad you got both! I got both too! Money well spent! They are fantastic each one is so unique and gorgeous πŸ™‚
