Right now (June) we have several blossoming linden trees in our neighbourhood. The smell is so glorious! This is why I searched for a linden blossom perfume. Enter Jo Malone french lime blossom. It smells very much like real blossom! But while I love the scent of linden blossom in the air, I discovered I don’t love it as a perfume. Too sweet and cloying, not my idea of a fresh or clean …Read more

It's a nice smell but not fresh or clean as professed by many. It reminds me of soft, sweet honeysuckle. It is elegant, but it's not my favorite.

I'm on the fence on this one. I adore Linden and this is a pretty good Linden blossom, but it also goes extremely sweet on my skin, which I don't like as much. I end up with a dry down of almost lily of the valley and honey. Not bad, but it's a bit like those Liddle Kiddle dolls from the 1970s, so it strikes me as 'childlike' even if it really isn't. Sometimes I love …Read more

MMMM...this is the MOST refreshing and DIFFERENT smelling scent that I have worn in a long time. It lasts longer than most Jo Malone fragrances, but you have to sample it on your own skin......it is luscious.....not too sweet!!

I reviewed this a few years ago under a different moniker (I used to be 'mangolassie', see below) , and though imagery invoked remains the same, it's not so fresh and clean as I remember. More like an expensive dusting powder or a fine french milled soap. It's a crisp, and yet somehow soft as well. Delicate elegance in a stiff corset.

"After sampling this …

French Lime Blossom is truly unique. The opening is a bright, fresh floral and the dry down, is a calm, smooth almost powdery beeswax. It's such an unexpected beauty of a fragrance. It reminds me of very high-end French soap. I love how the crisp sharpness of the green note in this scent is well balanced with the warmness of the beeswax. It can easily be worn alone, but it blends beautifully …Read more

As you can tell from the very high scores I've given, I absolutely adore this scent. I honestly don't think the descriptions have done it justice in the ratings or evaluations I've read here or elsewhere, in large part because everyone seems to be confused by the term "French Lime Blossom".
While this scent is a floral it has NO connection to limes. The …

For years I've been searching for something to replace L'occitane's Linden after they discontinued it and FLB is it. I still have a small amount of Linden left and the smell is identical. It starts out smelling sort of strong, but dries down to a nice fresh scent. Green if that makes any sense. I haven't noticed it wearing off fast. Especially compared to Wild Bluebell. …Read more

I adore this scent! I am not good at describing notes but I can describe a feeling, and this fragrance gives me an instant "happy, calm, refreshed" feeling. I spray it on my wrist and every time I lift my hand I get such a lovely whiff of this gem. I find it very long lasting thankfully because it's one of those scents that you crave to keep smelling. It is a sleeper, you think …Read more

FLB has that "Jo malone" fleeting top note that is just lovely - and smells great in the bottle or on my skin. The fragrance does change on me into a floral and is very wearable. I like it but can't give it 5 lippies because, for the price, it fades just so darn quickly. Great to get as a gift though.
