Estee Lauder has their latest flanker to White Linen, Pure White Linen Pink Coral, or is that a flanker to Pure White Linen? I lose track of flankers If it’s Pure White Linen, which is a flanker to White Linen, would that make this a flanker once removed?
The fragrance has notes of apple blossoms, waterfruits, Chinese berry, pink peppercorns, aldehydes, jasmine, cherry blossom pink peony, sweet peas, camelias, honeysuckle, vanilla, heliotrope and sandalwood. It opens as a fruity floral very unlike the loud, yet restrained notes of White Linen on its open. I don’t have Pure White Linen here to compare it to as well. But these two? Nothing alike except that Estee Lauder base.
It’s a very refreshing, light, slightly sweet floral summer fragrance. I don’t find it overly sweet, but it is geared more towards the younger set or people who like the fruity floral genre. I mean, I really don’t mind fruity floral if everything released these days weren’t a fruity floral. It’s very inoffensive from any angle, but not incredibly memorable either. You could certainly wear it to the office, a wedding, anywhere, which sometimes is a good recommendation for a perfume.
I like it well enough for something called Pink Coral, and I can definitely see wearing it during the summer as a light, effervescent scent. At least it has a decent price point. $39.50 for 1 ounce, 49.50 for 50 ml and $72 for 100 mls.
I’d love to give away some samples of this. What’s your favorite flanker? Is there any flanker that has truly succeeded mightily on its own, more so than the original? Just drop in a comment, and you’ll be entered in the drawing.
