A couple of months ago I came across Clean Reserve by accident whilst browsing through Space NK and initially, it was the sturdy yet minimalistic design of their bottles and branding that caught my eye!
A day later, I received an email asking if I’d like to sample a couple of fragrances by Clean Reserve, now if that isn’t some Black Mirror stuff right there then I don’t know what is… Of course, I jumped at the chance and was kindly gifted two fragrances by the brand:
In this particular blog post I will be reviewing the Terra Woods fragrance so check back soon for the ‘Skin’ fragrance review!
TERRA WOODS - CLEAN RESERVE
A unisex fragrance that is floral yet woody which launched in 2016.
Top Notes: Geranium, Jasmine Sambac
Middle Notes: Coconut
Base Notes: Musk, Woodsy Notes, Tonka Bean, Vanilla
Clean Reserve pledge to change the way you experience fragrances by creating a collection that highlights your individuality whilst tapping into their perfumers reserve of raw ingredients to remove the clutter, heaviness and complexity - so all you’re left with is CLEAN.
Each of the fragrances by Clean Reserve have been created so that you can pair it with another fragrance allowing you to create a fragrance that is truly special to become a firm, signature staple!
On the first spray I was immediately hit with the Geranium note with the ever so subtle hint of Coconut coming through which adds a warmth and a creaminess to the fragrance. The opening is quite bold but once the dry down begins, the scent stays pretty linear and fades after an hour or two… In terms of Terra Woods’ silage, I would say it begins medium/heavy but quickly wears down to a light and stays close to the skin and its projection again, starts off moderate but gradually becomes soft.
I did enjoy wearing Terra Woods for the initial scent itself, however, I wish it just lasted that little bit longer. With that being said, I would recommend wearing Terra Woods during the daytime and perhaps throughout Spring/Summer this may perform better?
Have you tried Terra Woods before? How did you find it? Have you come across Clean Reserve before and sampled any of their fragrances? If so, which one? I would love to hear your thoughts so leave me a comment down below and I’d love it if you could click the ‘like’ button too!
