Estee Lauder Pure White Linen Eau de Parfum
Advantages: A classical fragrance.
I love perfume and if I am the lucky recipient of a bottle then I am a very happy bunny. I do make a point of looking in Superdrug and other discount chemist stores because they often have some marvellous offers on but when I buy any perfume it is usually a gift for someone else.
I have relatives who lives abroad and twice a year they make a visit to the UK to visit family and luckily they always seems to think of me when passing the duty free perfume store at the airport.
As we get that little bit older it is important to pick the right perfume, I used to adore the heavy perfumes, Opium was one of my favourites and at one time I was addicted Dior's Poison but now I find that I cannot wear them, I need a far gentler and softer fragrance.
I also like a soft floral fragrance that I can put on in the morning and still be able to smell it later on in the day.
Estee Lauder's Pure White Linen spray is among those soft gentle floral perfumes that suits mature skin and the light floral fragrance lasts for hours.
Estee Lauder have given immense thought to the design of the bottle and have created a classic white glass bottle that has a spray top that is covered with an opaque glass cap. The pristine bottle has style and elegance and intimates that the contents are exquisite.
I know that a 50ml bottle of Pure White Linen will cost you in the region of £32 but having said that when it comes down to perfume you get exactly what you pay for ( or in my case get given!)
Estee Lauder have given the bottle the finest of sprays, so when you depress the button and release the perfume your skin is treated to a soft mist which dries in a couple of seconds.
The Eau De parfum is weightless and you cannot feel it on your skin whatsoever.
I am not a perfumier or an expert on what makes a good perfume, I have to use my sense of smell and my own personal preferences.
Estee Lauder may well have been thinking about a sunny Summer day when they created the fragrance but it can be comfortably worn all of the year around. On a Winters day it reminds you of what you have to look forward to and on a Summers day it is light, pure, refreshing and remarkably uplifting.
To my mind a good perfume is for wearing on your skin but I have seen many suggestions for using the precious liquid, spray it on cotton wool and tuck the cotton wool into your clothes drawers, spray your bedsheets or your handkerchiefs. Sorry, they are good ideas but I couldn't justify wasting my perfume on sheets or hankies.
Each and every perfume comprises of notes, usually a perfume has top, middle and bottom notes. The word notes refers to the individual oils or scents that are used to make the fragrance.
Estee Lauder have classified Pure White Linen as a fruity floral.
The top notes include Raspberry, Apple, Grapefruit, Mandarin, Iced Rose Tea, Freesia, Lilies, Ginger and Cardamom.
The middle notes are made up of Rose, Honeysuckle, Tuberose, Iris, Tulips and Osmanthus.
The bottom notes are Heliotrope, Patchouli and White Cedarwood.
Only Estee Lauder themselves know how they have managed to put all of these fragrances together and come up with a perfume that is light, long lasting and so very appealing.
Pure White Linen is maybe not one for the younger women, a few years ago I don't think that it would have been at the top of my wish-list but it is an incredibly beautiful aroma.
Think subtle, combine it with sophistication, add a dash of fresh air and stand in among one of the most beautiful gardens that you can think of and you will maybe be able to touch upon how lovely the fragrance is.
Summary: A soft floral fragrance that suits mature skin.
