What is illegal is if one is a minor/below the age of consent and there is intimacy. In most of Europe the age of consent is 16 and below 18 a minor.

15 could be considered Legal under a "Romeo and Juliet" law.

This kind of law can be tacked onto age of consent laws, the principle is simple if the act is consensual and the partners are close-in-age (also called close-in-age exception) You're not entirely correct many jurisdictions has whats called "Romeo and Juliet" laws which protects consensual relationships if the partners are close in age, this can also apply to people who passes age 18 dating someone who is a minor.
