Working in the fragrance industry, I have come into contact with a lot of different smells; however, I continually go back to my favorite notes like gardenia, jasmine, honeysuckle, rose and linden, one of my favorites. I first encountered linden in a bar of soap and then in person, while strolling around Versailles a few years back. The air was perfumed with an amazing floral aroma floating gracefully from perfectly shaped trees. I learned shortly there after that it was a linden tree and I was smelling the blossoms. Linden blossoms are delicate blooms that are shaped like yellow pom-poms and bloom in June here in New York. They say that your sense of smell can trigger memories and it is true, when I smell these flowers in June it reminds me of the second date I went on with my fiancé that made me realize that he was the one.
