Summary: This is my new favorite scent! After accidently buying White Linen (which is not to my taste at all - personal preference, no offence to anyone that likes it :)) I was so happy! Non offensive, crisp, clean and sexy! A refreshing change from my usual J'adore. Edit: I ended up selling this. I now find it boring and the scent fades way to fast.
Summary: I know this one is popular, but I'm afraid it produces a sinus-burning, detergent smell on me -- perhaps it would be better on clothing than skin. On the plus side: Beautiful bottle, good lasting power and well-suited for summer.
Summary: I got a sample of this. I was so unimpressed with it that I ended up giving it to my niece. I tried to like it but I really couldn't. I think the last poster summed it up well that it kind of smells like a cleaning product. There is just something about it I couldn't like. It just didn't smell "girly" to me, or "womanly" or...you get the drift! I definitely would not purchase this.
Summary: Loved the marketing of this, and usually love linen scents. This was just too strong and headachy for me. I felt like I had my head in a box of dryer sheets. My family had to open the window in the car when I had it on. Maybe it just doesn't work well with my chemistry, but it is just too strong.
Summary: Pure White Linen is a mostly-lemon fragrance with a hint of light florals and musk in the background. Good lasting power, very clean, and suited to any occasion including business. Exquisite bottle. Unfortunately I think there is something in this I'm allergic to.
Summary: I really like the other white linen blends but this one was too strong and smelled 'old' to me. I would not be able to tolerate it all day long. I used up all my other White Linen bottles and ordered this one only to find it unappealing to me.
Excerpt: Вообще, я не любитель свежих ароматов. Но однажды в одном из глянцевых журналов мне попался пробник Estee Lauder Pure White Linen Light Breeze, который мне очень понравился. Спустя года 3 стою я в магазине, парфюм, и мой взгляд падает на Pure White Linen. Пробника на полке не оказалось, а я почему-то даже и без пробника было уверена, что это тот аромат, который был в журнале! Схватила его, и довольная пришла домой. И какого же было мое разочарование!
