    Perfectly nice. A deep linden blossom smell (kind of like what orange blossom smells like, but with a lime undertone instead of orange) over a waxy, vaguely woody acacia with that subtle plasticky smell you get in some old perfumes. There's a salty melon smell that borders on lily running underneath everything as well, and it all gets sort of soapy as the day goes on. And that's about it. I enjoy simple, realistic florals with a hint of darkness, so this is up my alley, though the plasticky waxy elements are a little strong for my tastes. But I've still liked Tilleul enough to warrant a thumbs up. That being said, I still think there's a void in the perfume world that's yet to be filled by the perfect linden blossom perfume. This is nice, but I could imagine something better...

    The opening is perfect: fresh and juicy like a ripe watermelon, shy and bold like a magenta cyclamen lurking in the forest. It lasts just a while, before the eponymous notes settle in, clean and fresh and windy. I would adore it, if it weren’t a tiny bit too clean... The drydown strengthens on musky, soapy, waxy notes, while the pungent herbaceous note lingers far too long for my tastes. In the end I feel this scent cold and distant from skin, unable to warm up and melt in it. Too bad, I am a great fan of Olivia Giacobetti and love deeply the natural scent of lime blossoms , but this one doesn’t suit me at all.

    Too much watermelon at the opening touched with a bit of cyclamen. Love to eat watermelon, but don't necessarily want to smell like it. Luckily it settles fairly quickly and the linden comes forward with a bit of greenery too. It's only so so to me. Just a bit too fresh for my tastes. I'd prefer it if it had a warmer base, a bit more linden and less watermelon that lasted through the life of the fragrance.

    A beautiful light sweet floral to be enjoyed by both men and women. Dries down into a floral wood. Good.

    I love linden blossoms. They are joyous, green and sweet, yet wild and grassy. This is a reilable imitation of linden blossom, a feat accomplished with a balance of green, mildy fruity, tangy and sweet notes, foremost of which I smell the rind of watermelon and some grassy florals. Really, it is hard to describe. I am impressed that this perfume originated in 1955, is still available, and yet so few Americans have been exposed to linden soliflore. I tried the EDT, but I would recommend a stronger concentration. For those who have trouble finding this brand, Diptyque also has a Tilleul which is similar.

    Love it and i'm a brunette! it's spring and summer-y. My husband loves it on me too. The dry down is not non existant just a hush of scent which I love for work. I do not attribute an age to this fragrance but a delicacy. I am a Musc Ravageur person (!) so Tilleul is a real 180 degrees in every way. It's non citrus-y, natrually earthiness is fresh and feminine. So, like wearing the color red, black or violet, it's all about mood and style.
