Hi there, I need a clean, lovely and not disquieting scent 24/7.

Maybe:

Eau de Magnolia - FM

Eau de Guerlain

Aqua Celestia forte - MFK

Cargo de nuit - Prada

Imagination - LV

Do you have another recommendation?

Thanks! :)

Floris Neroli Voyage has been this for me since I acquired it. There are many (too many) "clean shirt" neroli fragrances in the world, but this one is particularly praiseworthy because of how distinctive and well-rounded it is.

It eschews the sweetness that sometimes gets tossed into neroli scents, and instead leans into a refreshing bitter orange opening. It offers some nice depth in the base with a lovely herbal bouquet (including a subtle fennel note). Lasts a good while, too.

I have not tried Imagination and Cargo de nuit, but the others would certainly qualify. Otherwise, when I hear clean and lovely, I think about the Hermessences, most of which can be described this way, in particular Muguet Porcelaine (lily of the valley), or others like Iris Ukiyoe.

Agree, I second this.

Floris in my opinion is a very under-rated perfume house that seems under the radar for many people which is a shame because they make some excellent fragrances at very reasonable prices. Their quality and mixing is consistently good.

I've been considering purchasing Neroli Voyage for some time (I only have a sample) but given I've recently bought 100ml bottles of No. 89, Santal, Limes and Jermyn Street I wasn't sure I was ready for another one! When I am, Neroli Voyage will almost certainly be the next Floris fragrance I buy as I do like it. It's a fresh, summery, citrus, marine fragrance that's a joy to wear.

I recently tried samples of two Neroli orientated fragrances, Creed Neroli Sauvage and Tom Ford Sole di Positano and Floris Neroli Voyage was far superior to both of them at a fraction of the price!

Edited to add: I did buy a bottle of Neroli Voyage!

Vaara and lily of the valley by penhaligons could be options, although muguet porcelaine is a nicer lily fragrance.

Many of the 'aquas' by le couvent are also really nice, lovely and fresh , like aqua paradisi. Very likeable!

The list you have is good, of those I would pick Eau de Magnolia. Also maybe try MFK 724, clean and lovely are the exact words I'd use to describe it.
