I perceive this scent as being both green with a hint of light musk, a combination I hadn't had before, and it works nicely. The green comes from what's described as Asian pear, but it doesn't smell like pears to me, but a fresh greenness, which is very pleasant in itself. But what comes through strongest is the soft musk, which lingers most after I spray it on my arms. What makes me like this best, though, is that both of these components linger in harmony. Many other fragrances seem to have one note linger for me. The lingering of both here makes this different and interesting. It smells like clean linens and even fresh water, making the name fit it well. What I enjoy using this fragrance for is to spray my bed linens to freshen them up between washings. I also just like to spray a little on my chest after a bath before going out. This is a fragrance that I would be proud to share with friends because it smells clean and also sophisticated to me.
