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.
I think I have finally found the fragrance I want to wear every single day! I went to a department store out of boredom the other day to look for something new. I explained to the sales associate that while I love florals, my husband doesn't, and I wanted something we could both be happy with. She recommended Pure White Linen, which honestly, I never in a million years would have tried on my own. Sorry, Estee Lauder, but I am not a fan of the original White Linen AT ALL. Hate it, in fact. But I LOVE Pure White Linen! On me, it smells fresh and clean, not overly fruity, or floral, or strong. I'm terrible at describing scents, so I couldn't tell you exactly what notes I do smell in Pure White Linen, just that it smells really, really good. I can smell some white flowers, and the raspberry sweetness, and definitely the "fresh air accord" that is mentioned in the description of the notes. It all blends together just beautifully. It is a scent that isn't overpowering, you have to be close to smell it, which is great for me since I work in health care and can't overwhelm people with my scent. This is perfect in every way. I'd buy it by the gallon if I could!
If you're looking for a clean, fresh scent, white linen should be your choice. It's not strong and over powering like most perfumes are. It lasts throughout the day. It's light and refreshing. It's simple and clean. Perfect for anyone who isn't going for a strong, sophisticated style.
My wife has tried a few different fragrances, but nothing compares to Pure White Linen. It is Clean, Crisp, Fresh, Sexy and so much more. It is my wife's signature fragrance. It is the only one that she truly loves wearing and the only one that I love on her!!!
Best For Anytime, Year Round, Fruity Scent, Fresh Scent
The original White Linen is a classic now, but I remember when it was one of the first lighter & fresher fragrances. This takes those qualities to a new level and I like it even better than the original. I love the fruitier notes in this one. Every time I wear it, I get compliments.

Pure White Linen has been my signature fragrance for many years. Love it's clean, fresh yet sexy, provocative scent. My husband describes it more as sensuous and erotic. My only compliment is that Estee Lauder never offers it in the small free sample size like they do other scents.
