Catching linden whiffs in the open is certainly very pleasant.
However, I must say, I have yet to find a linden perfume that didn't recall household cleaners. It seems that this flower, when removed from nature, displays an annoying tendency to turn functional. So I'm going to say you will be disappointed.
But nonetheless you should test yourself. I agree with Ipp that Any Tauer's Zeta is as good and realistic a linden as it gets, so I suggest you try it. If it clicks, great, if not, I guess it means you agree with me.
Linden absolute is nice stuff, but a bit quirky. You'd need a bit of skill to turn the absolute into a perfume. It is very strong and present, however, so it is a legit perfume ingredient. And when I bought it, if I recall it wasn't terribly expensive. It's one of a few fine flower oils that are easy to find and purchase. I recommend having it if you are going to be making women's perfumes, therefore. I think it mixes well with lime, among countless other things.
My ex girlfriend loved the stuff, the absolute. I was never excited by it by itself, though it certainly is useful in a well crafted perfume.
