April Aromatics Unter den Linden EDP Perfume Review

April Aromatics Unter den Linden

Linden blossoms can be filed under “Some of Victoria’s Favorite Smells”. I love the tartness and the sweetness of linden/lime blossom. Plus, it reminds me of some of my favorite places in the world. AND it’s one of those aromatics that has appeared in countless mythology and legends. I’m drawn to linden. I’m actually surprised by the few amount of perfumes that have embraced the beauty of linden.

April Aromatics Unter den Linden opens with a refreshing feeling of watercress, mint, and citrus in chilled mineral water. Beneath this there is a layer of linden blossoms; it’s faint – honeyed citrus in a breeze. The heart is tart citrus and indolic spring “tree” blossoms like lemony magnolia, the honeyed lime of linden and orange blossoms. And then it gently fades away…becoming a clean, powdery beeswax floral.


Under the lime tree
On the heather,
Where we had shared a place of rest,
Still you may find there,
Lovely together,
Flowers crushed and grass down-pressed.
Beside the forest in the vale,
Sweetly sang the nightingale.

– Portion of the poem, “Unter den Linden” by Walther von der Vogelweide (translated by Raymond Oliver)

I feel Unter den Linden represents this poem – crushed petals and romantic love.



Notes listed include French linden blossom, magnolia, and citrus. PERFUMER – Tanja Boching

Give Unter den Linden a try if you like linden. Or if you like perfumes like Tauer Zeta, Annick Goutal Eau de Ciel, L’Artisan Parfumeur La Chasse aux Papillon, Shelley Kyle De Ma Mere, Humiecki & Graef Clemency and/or D.S. & Durga Silent Grove. Unter den Linden is a good choice for warmer weather/climates.

Projection is average. Longevity is below average.

The 1 oz perfume retails for $170 at Luckyscent. Samples are also available for purchase.

Victoria’s Final EauPINIONCrushed spring “tree” blossoms and a breeze. It’s a really pretty linden but I admit that the price deters me (about $230 for an ounce).

  1. i’m so tardy to the party when it comes to april’s work… have yet to try anything! this sounds perfect for summer… like something you would pull out of the fridge.

    1. I don’t think the brand is distributed in the US so it’s easy to be tardy to the party. Rumor has it that Beautyhabit will most likely carry the line and I hope they get the discovery sets.

      Many of the ones in this line are very refreshing and almost “drinkable”. I really like Bohemian Spice. I like some gourmand-y notes with my patchouli.
