Really want some perfume that smells like freshly washed skin with soap, maybe a dove type smell, maybe more soapy..does this exist?

You can buy a dove scented perfume online at perfume parlour or for something more expensive look at the Clean range.

Ps the perfume parlour one is REALLY strong. You need the tiniest drop of it

I like the green Eau de Givenchy - to me, that has a fresh, floral, soapy scent.

Not so much “soap” but I love Jo Malone “Grapefruit”: very fresh, zingy, clean... ao quite soapy to me.

Perfume Parlour do a Dove scent perfume.

Sarah Jessica Parkers' Lovely isn't soapy as such but a powdery floral soft cosy scent.

Glow by JLo

Clean - Fresh Laundry. In fact, any of Clean's perfumes. Skin is lovely, too.

I second Glow by JLo!

This one

Oh and baby grace by philosophy

Thereluctantstepmother Tue 17-Nov-20 13:38:39

Sarah Jessica Parker’s one is called Lovely and smells exactly as you describe.

White Linen Estée Lauder is the obvious choice

(Although I agree with the JM Grapefruit suggestion- it's Devine)

Anything with iris as a note will smell soapy
Prada Infusions d'Iris
philosophy Grace (can't remember exact name)
All these have that clean "white" soapy smell.

As others have said PP do Nivea and Dove

Other houses do "fabric softener" style fragrances with the "linen" effect, so not "soap" but still "clean".

A third vote for Glow by JLo. I expected to hate a celebrity perfume but it's absolutely lovely, like you have just stepped out of the shower and have a really clean neck!

Pure Grace is very soapy. Reminds me of the small white bars that we used to get in primary school loos...I still really like it though! grin

Kenzo Flower smells like baby soap to me. Lovely and cheap at Superdrug.

Have white linen by Estée Lauder, I like it but find it a bit overpowering, even just using a little.

I also have Glo by JLo and I LOVE it! To me it smells like sun cream on the beach on a hot day, Devine.
That reminds me I must get it out!

Light blue by D&G and any philosophy ones

TheSpottedZebra Tue 17-Nov-20 19:42:07

Fourthing JLo Glow, but you already have it!

BaseDrops Tue 17-Nov-20 19:57:46

I think Arpege smells like soap. Posh soap grin but soap.

TheSilentStars Tue 17-Nov-20 20:05:41

Arpege is leathery soap, agreed. Wonderful.

Everyone always recommends Glow for soapy scents but I don't get the soapiness at all.

The Perfume Parlour Dove dupe is great though.
