Another scent from Clean, that really works for me.
Maybe you have to have the body chemistry for this type of scents, because most of the Clean perfumes smell defintely not as laundry detergent or something like that and I couldnīt detect the lemony overkill some of the other reviewers described.
Anyway, this is one of the "warmer" fragrances and as the name tells, one of the sweeter fragrances from Clean.
The top is build of Ornage, grapefruit, lime and orange blossom, the heart is made of lily, rose and geranium and the base is musk.
To me, itīs just the warmer version of Clean EdT and therefore, I obviously like it.
Honestly, if I had to give up all perfume brands, but one, I would choose Clean. At least two, the Clean EdT and Sweet Layer, really, really, really smell very good and yummy on my skin.
Plus, here in Germany, the Clean Scents are not well known, so I donīt smell this perfume on every third female that passes me by. I have to order it online, because itīs not sold in any beautystore nearby .

I love Clean's Warm Cotton fragrance. This is like a sweeter, milder,more feminine version of the Warm Cotton scent.

I find this scent addictive!! I can't get enough of the sweet herbal/citrus scent that on me, smells clean and fresh -- not cloying at all. The opening notes are typical, but nonetheless, enjoyable. In fact --- to the average nose ... one might get an artifical lemon scent. However, I smell a general citrus freshness that does lack depth and character. But wait! When the middle notes opening up, this very feminine melange of sweet citrus/honey and herbal notes bloom that is addicting to my nose! A scent I knew, but that I couldn't quite place in real life. Then it hit me last night as I was deciding on my nightly cup of tea..... Clean Sweet Layer is spot on --- and smells exactly like Twinings African Honeybush, Mandarin and Orange Tea! This happens to be an herbal tea that I love drinking -- partially because of the wonderful fragrance/flavour of African honeybush --- an herb that calms the mind and quenches thirst -- and the sweet delicate fragrance/flavour of Mandarin orange. Love it!

I like fresh, citrus-y fragrances a lot, so Clean was a line I had to try. Sweet Layer reminds me a little of Fresh Sugar Lemon, but Clean's scent is a little stronger and more basic. This is a fragrance that I have to use pretty sparingly, but the soapy, citrus scent is very refreshing. I know there are a lot of people who dislike this and similar fragrances because they smell a bit like some household cleaners, but I've always preferred crisp, clean scents to those that are overpoweringly flowery.

I bought this on sale from Sephora about a year ago. It's dreadful! I'd tried Clean before in-store and liked it, but when I bought the Sweet Layer, it smelled as all of the other reviews had mentioned--cloying, Lemon-Pledge, disgusting. I got a headache after wearing it and my boyfriend hated it. Not to mention it is absurdly overpriced. You would be better off with a $5 body splash from VS or BBW. I returned this! Don't buy it and don't buy the hype :)

This smells similar to the description "sweet". It smells like soap with lots of "sweetness" thrown on top and maybe a good dose of "stinky" jasmine? Not a fan. Somewhat gross honestly.

Not bad, not great. I am surprised so many people think this smells offensive. I think heavy florals and thick spicy musks are more offensive, but then again, I am a clean freak...no pun intended there...I do think the line smells a lot like being freshly showered and that is when I like this stuff most. When I am nearing the end of the day, if I have been in a smokey place, it helps me to freshen up. I will agree I was expecting more "sweet" to this one, too, and I think it is a little more on the tangy side. That aside, this and the original are the ones I like alright from the line, but I think they should have quit while they were ahead.

From the name I was expecting this to have a sweeter note -- like vanilla, but it's pure lemon/lime soda on me with a hint of musk. It's similar to what you would find with lighter scents like in the DEMETER fragrance line. Not unpleasant, but not what I would like to wear as a perfume.

This is a softer, sweeter, more lemony version of original Clean. I don't really care for most of the Clean scents, but if you like them I'd suggest giving this one a try. For me though, it's still Eau de Industrial Cleaner.

I scored this at Sephora for $20 since it is being discontined. I love it; it reminds me of Fresh Lemon line. I find the original Clean too sharp for me, and the sweet layer softens that. It lasts a couple of hours on me. Too bad it is being discontinued.

I was expecting to LOVE this, so I bought a full size on ebay.. To me, it smells like Orange Power cleaner or 409 or something. NO way is it worth the money, when you can buy orange cleaner and spray it on your wrists for far less!!
I don't think it's sweet at all, i'd define it as tang-y.

Starts out very much like lemon Pledge on me. I like the smell of Pledge, but not as a perfume. It morphs into lemon Starburst candy in a couple of minutes, which isn't bad, but a couple of minutes after that it's gone.

Not my thing. At first it is verrrrrrry lemony and then that morphs into a strange clean floral musk with like creamy lemon undertones. I don't like it. I really wish I did so I will come back to it again in a few days.

I have read the other reviewers thoughts on this tested it and I love it. I get a very orange smell creamy orange mixed with a comforting other note.I would not say it is a clean smell in the sense of soap. But it is a really nice scent I like wearing it but it is way too expensive. However I like it enought to buy it,instead of just having a sample. Edit I got this for Mothers day and I really love it orange blossoms and modern light refreshing to wear. I can see enjoying it a lot in the hot sticky weather we are soon to have. It is different and many hate it but not in a nasty way just do not get the right smell on their skin I believe. When it works it is very nice,when it doesn't yuck. Please test it well before buying it.

When I tried this, my first thought was that it was very lemony and while there's something refreshing and familiar about it, I asked DH to sniff and he said, "it reminds me of Lemon Pledge." And really, he hit it on the head. My mom always used Pledge on our living room furniture and Clean Sweet Layer oddly reminds me of the house I grew up in, which is nice for a walk down memory lane, but not something I want to wear.

I got samples of Sweet Layer and the original Clean thinking I wouldn't really like them after reading all the bad reviews. But I was VERY pleasantly surprised. These are really nice, clean, sweet, citrus, zesty and QUITE unique! I especially like Sweet Layer which is the one I'll review here. Someone said a while back that it smelled like juicy fruit gum. I didn't really believe it because of all the reviews saying that it smelled like harsh lemon cleaner. Well, I'm happy to report that it smells almost exactly like Juicy Fruit gum to me. I don't think it smells like lemon cleaner at all. Definitely a spring or summer scent though. I love it and have a bottle coming soon!

I love Sweet Layer's clean, fruity scent and receive compliments when wearing it (although i much prefer Clean Ultimate). Sweet Layer lasts pretty well on me, too. Gave it a 4 because although i love it, i think it's way overpriced.

I actually love this perfume. My husband attempted to get me to like the Clean line a while ago, and I hated it. I wasn't ready to have a new scent. A few months ago I decided to find a new scent, and thought of the Clean ones because my husband had adored them so much (and he is picky!). They have quite a few Clean scents to choose from, and Sweet Layer was the one I got hooked on. At first I wasn't sure about it, but when I found myself sniffing and sniffing my wrists throughout the day, I realized I was in love! It is a fresh, citrusy, clean scent. I cannot seem to get enough of this stuff!

I love this. It's summertime in a bottle. Grapefruit, lemons and white musk, Clean and fruity. Everyone comments when I wear this it's totally refreshing and uplifting.

I would give this a 0 if I could. This is possibly WORSE than the original Clean. It smells like a "funky" lemon-lime soda smell. Just plain awful. I could not wash this off of my skin fast enough, thank goodness it was a sample! A bad car-freshner smell.....just awful.
