Summary: I just can't get over how amazing White Linen smells all day, no layering necessary. Its strong, high key, meaning its going to stand out when you wear this, its lovely but not subtle at all. It makes you feel very good to smell so good, which increases your self confidence. This is a floral masterpiece, an absolute beauty. Love this, its one of my all time favorites and I own a large bottle. Smells clean, very pretty and exceptionally classy.
Summary: It is a beautiful scent. When I smell it, I get transported back to my childhood sneaking into my mothers bedroom to play with her makeup and perfume on her vanity. Its such a warm, comforting smell. Like a grandmother wearing a warm cozy sweater we hugging you.. But alas, I am not meant to wear it. It doesn't go well with my chemistry/personality. I was told it makes me smell like old ladies and mothballs.
Summary: I grew up smelling this beautiful smell on my Mom - and couldn't wait to be old enough to wear it myself. When I turned 18, my Mom bought me the entire gift package and told me...with great love, that she was passing it (this subtle, amazing smell) down to me...what an honor I thought! Now, I am a 45 year old women and have been wearing NOTHING but White Linen ever since. I do not have a daughter (I am blessed with two sons), but if I did...this would, no doubt..
Summary: I agree with previous reviewers--the old container shown is NOT what I received, the price has increased, and there is definitely too much glitter. Why?? The scent appears somewhat different also. Maybe, it is time to try some other perfume company. But, I really like White Linen.
Summary: I am very allergic to a ton of floral scents. This makes it hard to find a scent that I can truly wear. Until I tried this perfume. OMG it is so light, citrusy, clean, and a subtle undertone of floral. I just want to keep smelling it all day. My boyfriend can't get enough of it when I wear it. I am hooked. Would love a body lotion of it if they made one. thank you EL!
Summary: At initial burst, White Linen is sharp, loud, and overpowering. After a few hours, it quieted down to a soapy floral. White Linen might be something to wear to a business luncheon. I can see why some people enjoy this classic. However, it is not for me.
Summary: I love the scent of Pure White Linen! Great everyday scent that is easy to wear. I got a sample of this with a past EL order and had to order it for my collection! Long lasting and not an overbearing scent to wear.
