Parfums D'Orsay Tilleul

Tilleul by Parfums d'Orsay is to me the essence of a country summer redolent of linden blossoms in the air, the sun on the fields, beeswax and hay plus a hint of watermelon in the distance (although it's hard to detect marine notes in this floral fragrance). It reminds me very much of some other Green Floral favorites of mine such as Sung by Alfred Sung, Jean Patou Vacances, Floris Seringa, and also of Cartier Panthère Eau Legere and Frederic Malle En Passant. Born in 1955, Tilleul is a floral scent, a white floral-green floral combination with a touch of fruit that is very clean and pretty, lovely to dab or spritz on after a shower. If the thought of perfuming in the summer heat isn't appealing to you, Tilleul is also available as a luxury soap in an array of sizes to choose from.
