LINGER Pure Parfum Serum Review

LINGER Pure Parfum Serum Review
June 7, 2017 Reviewed by Holly Dawsey 0 Comments

Truth In Aging community members were recently given the opportunity to test Linger Pure Parfum Serum, the first fragrance in serum form, before it hits the market. The scents include a spicy floral, a citrus blend and a sultry white floral, all of which are delivered via a silky serum that is said to linger long past traditional perfumes. In fact, 50 percent of our reviewers said the fragrance lasted all day. One reviewer reports, “I was surprised at the longevity of the scent. I found the application easy and experienced no adverse effects.” Learn more about what they thought of this “scentovation” here.

Golden Sun (a bright citrus blend)

“It has a subtle citrus scent that isn’t overwhelming. No headaches or other after effects, and my husband could smell it without his usual sneezing fits. The serum felt good on my skin, goes on smooth and leaves no oily residue.” -Sandra, 68

“The first time that I smelled the fragrance, I immediately felt like I was laying down on warm sand during a sunset. It feels like the last warm rays of the sun are touching your skin. I really love this scent, as it makes me feel happy and calm. It’s a great daytime perfume, and the serum lasted the whole day — even after showering once.” -Mariana, 37

Purple Heart (a feminine floral blended with exotic woods)

“I would describe the scent as a sensual floral — spicy and woodsy. I don't usually like sweet florals, but this was musky and sexy and not cloyingly sweet. The scent mixed well with my chemistry, and it really lasted! I love it — and my hubby likes it, too! I also like the velvety texture of the serum and how it feels on my skin.” -Elisse, 58

“Rich and not at all timid describes this fragrance to perfection. I would say Purple Heart starts with a bold floral profusion with undertones of berry and spicy wood. The dry-down hours later reads more musky, woodsy fragrance. This is a very adult, sophisticated, womanly fragrance, and I see it as more suitable for evening. I could smell this the next day still, so it lasted at least 24 hours, but of course in a much subtler and slightly changed scent. I actually liked the scent much better on my skin after it had been on for a while.” -Susan, 60  

Red Hot (an unapologetic spicy floral)

“This is a spicy and sexy scent that, to me, is still subtle enough for everyday wear. It’s a bit sweet with what seems like a hint of vanilla, but in a more mature way. The serum itself is easy to apply, long-lasting and not headache-inducing as some perfumes can be.” -Sarin, 29

“This is a great perfume for those who prefer a spicy fragrance as opposed to florals. It is warm, sensuous and long-lasting. It’s good for both day and evening. I put this serum on in the early morning and enjoyed the smell of the fragrance all day with no adverse reactions or irritation.” -Karen 

The unique delivery

“The big thing that sets this product apart though is the applicator and the consistency. There's a smooth, curved, cool metal applicator that is pressed to the skin — much like those cooling anti-puffiness under-eye gel applicators — and an easy to use little adjacent thumb pump. The product is a silky-smooth serum consistency, most likely silicone based. It's easy to control the application. There's no dribbling, splashing on too much, or spraying half of it into the air. Once you figure out how strong the scent is, it's easy to adjust the application to your preferences.” -Susan, 60

“The application is so easy! Just press the applicator to wherever you want to apply the scent and it's that simple. I love the serum, which is soft and light. I applied it in the morning and was still getting compliments late into the evening.” -Marion, 60
