Clean Reserve Rain from Clean Beauty Collective is the latest addition to my fragrance family and it’s nicer than I’d ever imagined.
I’d seen the Clean fragrances all over Instagram and knew that I wanted to try one, but didn’t know where to start as there’s nowhere near me that I can visit to smell any of them. Luckily, one of the lovely PR brands that I work with offered to send me one of the travel sizes so that I could get an idea of what one of the scents would be like. I left the choice of fragrance in their hands and they sent me Rain, which seems appropriate as it always rains where I live.
I always love the smell of the air after there’s been a really good downpour. The air seems fresher and cleaner and it always makes me feel really optimistic for some reason. Ok, so this fragrance is more based on the smell of the Amazon rainforest rather than a dingy Lancashire mill town, but you’ve got to work with what you’ve got.

As much as I love my spicy scents, or florals, there are times when I just want something that smells clean and fresh and Rain certainly hits the spot.
It’s beautifully refreshing and unisex, so you know it’s not going to be too feminine. I’ve noticed that it smells differently on a man than it does on a woman, so it seems to adjust to your own scent. I like this a lot, as some scents don’t always work with your natural body scent.
Purity that transports. Refreshingly exotic. Awaken your senses with fresh dewy plants and flowers you’d find along the Amazon forest.Clean Beauty Collective
Top – Bergamot
Heart – White Flowers
Base – Patchouli
At first you do really pick up on the citrus notes, but then it dries down into a fresh floral (on women), that is nice and subtle. Overall, it’s an extremely refreshing fragrance that will never be overpowering. It’s a great scent for summer and there’s a strong temptation to finish the travel size (£20.00) and treat myself to a full size (£82.00).
I now feel like I need to try more of the Clean Reserve fragrances as Rain has been such a huge hit with me.
