Linden, subtle and light notes
Delicate and light, lime gives off fragrances in its image. Its notes are very subtle, they look like honey. The notes of linden embody nature, true nature in all that it offers spring and innocent. Discreet, lime is often used in colognes. In fine perfumery, it will be positioned mainly as a top note, or sometimes as a heart note, as in the perfume “Aroma Allegoria (Soothing Aromaparfum)” by Guerlain. Here, lime is accompanied by chamomile, but also mimosa and ylang-ylang. Vanilla and powdery notes at the end, enhance the soft trail left by the lime tree… Infinite sweetness. Another floral scent where the lime tree generously brings its sweetness is “Eau du ciel” by Annick Goutal. This perfume is a melody of tender scents.
Can lime blossom combine with other fragrances?
Because of its softness and lightness, linden goes perfectly with floral notes ... The rose is a tender flower that blends wonderfully with the naturalness of linden. We can nevertheless find lime in citrus compositions, as is the case for the perfume “Eau d'orange Douce” by Hermès. Here, it is more exactly the lime leaves that are used, as a heart note, where it is associated with orange and tangerine. The back is adorned with precious woods with cedar wood, patchouli and sandalwood, which brings a chic and sensual aspect. Softness and freshness, a fleeting pleasure to be consumed without moderation ... We can also discover the lime tree accompanied by woody musk notes, as in Extract of Songe by the Artisan Parfumeur. Here, the lime tree is positioned in the middle note,accompanied by orange blossom. “Extrait de Songe” is a perfume that evokes a summer twilight, with all its colors.
The lime tree is a beautiful tree, large and majestic in particular thanks to its silvery leaves. Linden is mainly used in infusion. In perfumery, lime offers its subtle, soft and light notes. It also has a fragrance reminiscent of honey. Thanks to this sweetness, lime is mainly integrated into floral or citrus scents. It is true that lime is not widely used in fine perfumery. As a result, it is difficult to find it associated with other olfactory families.
