Pure White Linen Light Breeze is the latest fragrance launch from the Estee Lauder Pure White Linen Collection. The scent is just as crisp, and feminine as the pretty ad where Gwyneth Paltrow is lounging in a white linen Chloe dress. The scent's tagline is "The fragrance inspired by the days you’ll want to relive forever." And hey, if I were Gwyneth, I'd like to lie there forever, too.
Pure White Linen Breeze is a lighter variation of the original White Linen and Pure White Linen fragrances. It's a little bit younger and also a little bit greener since it contains lots of florals, citrus and woods. It's a blend of Darjeeling tea, Italian bergamot, grapefruit, orange zezt, kumquat, osthmanthus, yellow freesia, neroli, linden flowers, rose, cedar wood, teak wood, skin accord and ambrosial acacia honey.
I like this fragrance because it captures the smell of a fresh day in a garden when it's warm and comfortable, but not overly hot. While it's not beachy or coconutty, it manages to transport you to those balmy afternoons when you sit in the grass or in a garden and relax.
Estee Lauder Pure White Linen Light Breeze is available as a body lotion ($36) and in three bottled sizes ($35–$65). I'd love to hear your thoughts on this scent, so please leave a comment when you have the chance to test it out.
