Estee Lauder's Classics line includes such old standards as Estee, Knowing and my favorite summer scent: White Linen. From its soft grassy herbal scent to the sleek bottling, White Linen has remained a customer favorite since its debut in 1978.
This is a "soft" scent with top notes of jasmine, rose, moss and violet, making it ideal for use during summer's hot days and nights. To get the most from this lovely scent, it should be layered with its matching lotions and powders. This is because, unlike many of Lauders perfumes, White Linen doesn't linger on the skin for hours. So adding the lovely silky lotion and lightweight fragrant powder will greatly enhance its staying power.
White Linen and White Linen Breeze are perfect first perfumes for young teens. With so many young women's scents being too sweet, candylike or fruity, this scent is an ideal way to help educate them to great fragrances. It is also perfect for office settings where strong fragrances can create problems with co-workers.
At $55.00 for a 3.5 ounce bottle it isn't inexpensive, but its subtle healthy fragrance is timeless and classy.
