So fresh, so clean

Spicy scents are often an olfactory signature of winter bouquets. And look, while we love smelling like a sexy cinnamon stick in the evening, during the day we prefer a lighter take on all things fragrance.
We’re cleansing our palettes with a selection of cold snap-complimenting colognes that promote the kind of ‘so fresh, so clean’ vibes that takes us right out of our seasonal depression with a mere inhale.
This is your initiation into the world of refined, clean-scented fragrance. Welcome.
HERMETICA Jade888 EDP
Inspired by the Amazon rainforest, this blooming, green fragrance touches on notes of florals and refreshing spicy extracts like green musk, lily of the valley and ginger. Violet and pear offer a clean-cut experience of comforting cedarwood and cashmeran.
Lubin Gin Fizz EDT
Could we offer you a light gin-infused spritz? Inspired by the botanics of a traditional gin fizz cocktail, notes of citrus, tangy fruit and white blossoms form a refreshing blend grounded by touches of musk.
Art Meets Art Like A Virgin EDP
Radiating an ‘untouched’ vibe that’s eternally clean and pure thanks to top notes of salt-spray and citrus, this angelic olfactory restores with heart notes of freesia, peony, rose, and paradisone. Musk and wood accords round out the immaculate blend.
Officine Universelle Buly Eau Triple Komi Forest
A uniquely lightweight way to experience fragrance, this water-based scent features uplifting notes synonymous with wanderings through pine trees. Think: Green, woody, mineral and moss scents.
Maison Francis Kurkdjian Aqua Universalis Cologne Forte EDP
Like an invigorating breath of fresh air, this purifying scent delivers a breathtaking blend of bergamot, rose, white flowers and musk.
L'Artisan Parfumeur Un Air De Bretagne EDP
This crisp scent plays on notes of citrus, neroli, cypress and cedar, warmed by amber accords. Imagine a walk on a winter’s afternoon, the sun setting early on the bracing cold of the day. This is that.
Gucci Mémoire d'une Odeur Eau de Parfum
This nostalgic scent plays lightly on your mind with a heady, dream-inducing bouquet. Roman chamomile, jasmine, subtle cedar and vanilla warm the soul for a transcendent experience that’ll have you reminiscing every soothing sniff.
