CLEAN Summer Escape

Are you one of the lucky ones on vacay during the long holiday weekend? Are you on the other side of the hemisphere where it's actually summertime? Wherever you are, whatever you're up to, this variation of CLEAN by Dlish is for the aqueous scent lover with a penchant for the tropical. CLEAN Summer Escape smells to me of tart, fresh water fruits (melon, maybe, but more like a hazy mixture of fruits; the youthful tartness reminds me of CLEAN Rain and Calvin Klein Eternity Aqua) and a bit of that coconutty 'Coppertone' suntan lotion scent as you might find in Benefit So Hooked On Carmella, Taylor Swift Wonderstruck Enchanted, Versace Crystal Noir or Ralph Lauren Ralph Hot. The overall structure of cool, Jolly Rancher candy notes combined with sweeter (but not too sweet, more musky than gourmand) base notes is like the blueprint for Beyonce's first fragrance, Heat, but more casual.
