White Linen Breeze by Estee Lauder
Rose, Muguet, Jasmine.
Cedar, Vetiver, Musk, Ambergris, Osmanthus.
My first reactions to wearing White Linen Breeze was "Where have I smelled this before"? I cannot tell you the scent, but I have ( no doubt ) reviewed at least one that has smelled extremely similar.
This Eau de Parfum by Lauder is, in my opinion at least, a comfort scent that possesses some gravity. There's nothing heavy about it, but it has substance and since it smells good, that's a definite plus. It leans feminine to the point where I wouldn't consider wearing it, but I have enjoyed the performance for the sake of reviewing it.
I was hoping for a resin to accent the finish, but instead an earthy wood accompanies the floral-green theme that is the soul of White Linen Breeze. Sillage is acceptable and longevity is approximately 5 hours plus on my skin. I expected a bit more hang time since this is an Eau de Parfum, but it was a full bodied affair while it lasted.
Thumbs up from Aromi for Estee Lauder's White Linen Breeze. A sample wear is highly recommended.
