One of my 18(+8)th birthday presents was a bottle of perfume.
A bottle of Estee Lauder's Pure White Linen, to be precise.
I firmly believe that there are no such thing as bad presents.
The only BAD thing about presents is not getting any.
You know... like air.
Funny thing is that this was NOT the only perfume set I received as a gift for my birthday.
IS THIS A HINT OR SOMETHING?
I don't smell bad also. Hmph.
Why don't people EVER hire me for this kinda shit? Can't they see I'm not a troll? Or am I? I am? So it's because I'm a troll isn't it you fucking double standard bigots!!
As you can see, a camwhore never misses a chance to camwhore, so mind the shameless self-indulging photos once again. It's my site so fuck you. Also am kinda sick of seeing Gwyneth I-look-so-normal Paltrow's freaking face everywhere as well I mean ENOUGH of her mediocreness already ohmygod uber hot looking supdermodels EXISTS for a reason, and it definitely isn't for rocket science research.
There was a major launch thing going on for this perfume. If you were one of them NORMAL people who don't stick their noses to the PC screen 24-7 and actually LEAVE the house periodically you'll notice that this perfume is being advertised at every single advertising avenue known to men.
Fuck you, pervs
Apperently, Pure White Linen is the daughter of classic White Linen, something your mother and my mother used. I loved the smell of White Linen because of its subtle flowery smell of familiarity and comfort. Because I grew up smelling it on mum.
I suppose the smart people at Estee Lauder realised this and decided to launch another younger, fresher edition of this perfume to appeal to the younger generation. Because let's face it, as much as we love them, do we really want to smell like our mothers? Would you really want to remind your boyfriend of his mother? Hahaha! Didn't think so!
Woah. Deep. Eyebags. Fill. Goldbars. Need. Photoshop. Classes.
Some perfumes out there with about a thousand other species of flower/fruit/flavouring/dead animals' musk mixed in a bottle smell so damn pungent that just a mere whiff of it makes your nostrils feel like it's being pricked by a million tiny needles. And what is it with trying to smell like dessert? I like my vanilla very much but not so much until I want to smell like cake. Flavour enhancers should NOT be used in frangrances damnit!
I personally like my perfumes to smell subltey and fresh-like. A nice blend of fruits and flowers. With a hint of citrus. Something about citrus in perfumes makes me feel lively, cheery and gay. No, I mean gay in a gay happy way, not in the gay Big Gay Al in Pink Leotards gay way, not to say that gay people aren't happy or anything but you know, I was describing an EMOTION, not a way of life okay I mean seriously how would gay people smell like when they don't even smell the same because they smell like every other folk like you and me ANYWAY? Sheesh.
It's mine I tell you. MINE. My only. My precioussss.....
If you like Clinique's Happy, you'll like Pure White Linen too. Not quite the same, but pretty similar in a way. Both reminds you of sunshiney days on an orchard of freshly bloomed flowers which sprung from the damp earth after a rainy day.
I love this stuff. It's subtle. It's flowery and there's a hint of citrus I so love which comes from the green Granny Smith Apple top tones. So no, you can't have it.
Now I can skip showers and still smell nice! Wakakakka!
Thanks for the lovely gift! Me so happy! Me love prezzies!
People should just give me more free stuff you know IS THAT TOO MUCH TO ASK FOR REALLY? Shit.
