  1. Two images come to mind when I smell this. One is the experience of transferring the wet, fragranced laundry from the washing machine to the dryer. The other image is sitting in a room of a freshly cleaned house watching the sun shine through a white curtain that billows in the breeze.

    All in all, it just smells clean, perhaps of cleaning products but not the harsh detergents, rather it’s more the soft, gentle, satisfying smells of knowing you’re in a clean home (not a clean hotel, but a home). When you first apply it, it doesn’t appear to be that strong. Give it some time to bloom.

  2. In the bottle, this one does just smell like laundry! It does smell sun-warmed, though, once it hits my skin; something warmer comes out and softens the “clean” scent. It’s definitely ozonic, but in a soft way; it does smell like rain.

    After a little bit it’s warmer still; it smells more like the summer rain just passed through and the sun came back out, warming everything back up again. It smells like grass and probably something floral that I can’t pinpoint, the “clean laundry” scent softened by the warmth of the sun.

  3. Laundry powder detergent but it does have a more complex scent than just that on it’s own. I would say this scent really does match it’s name, unfortunately it doesn’t last so long and is really light.
