White Linen fragrance notes

Reviews of White Linen

I like the floral notes, although the animalics can get to be just a bit too much for me. It lasts a long time, especially if it gets on clothes. I actually like the far, far dry down better than any other part--smelling it on a shirt two days later is lovely.

I happily used my sample, but will probably not repurchase, as this reminds me a bit of my mother-in-law, and I want to smell different.

"White Linen" is, I believe, the worse fragrance that I have ever had the displeasure of smelling. If one's goal is to smell like baked and dehydrated urine blended with laundry detergent, then "White Linen" is the fragrance to choose.

What smells more like a bitter vintage greenish floral than an Estée Lauder fragrance? Another floral Estée Lauder fragrance. Ok and potent.

A freshish florally immersed aldehydic blast greet me with a bright "hello"! Associated with a pear-peachy fruitiness, a few early floral components soon develop: a soft ylang-ylang with a nice muguet impression - both smooth and both are pleasantly sweet.

The second phase completes the shift towards the floral: lilac and rose initially, later on also the aromas if orchids and a light jasmin. All these are nothing extraordinary, and quite agreeably executed.

The base brings another turn: a honeyed vanilla cinnamon sweetness pick up where the ylang-ylang left, with woodsy-ambery undertones providing a good counterbalance to the sweeter spots.

I get moderate sillage, excellent projection and nine hours of longevity on my skin.

This is a pleasant spring day scent, although no match to the others of the triad is was released with. Some ingredients are well made, some are a tad too generic, but it is blended quite well and shows considerable variability throughout its development - this prevents too much boredom in this somewhat lighthearted and predictable composition. Given its performance is solid, this pushes it - just - across the line into positive territory. 3/5.

I hate this with a passion. Just terrible. Last good on skin and decent silage but yucky smell.

When Estee Lauder launched this it was part of a fragrance trilogy--wear them alone or layer them. Of the three (Celadon, Pavillion and White Linen), this is the only one to survive and what a shame, because I always thought that it was the worst of the lot. Screechy sharp laundry detergent smell amplified by an overdose of aldehydes, this reinforced that Estee Lauder was good at putting out over the top screamers. Sophia Grojsman found her perfect match with Lauder--they both go to eleven. The notion of a collection of light, ephemeral summery mix and match fragrances was ahead of its time--Ellena has been doing this with greater success at Hermes in the last few years with his Hermessence line. A pity that the name White Linen (great for a man's or a woman's scent) has been used up on this scrubber.
