40 Days and 40 Night of Fragrance Notes: Tea
I got nasty habits, I take tea at three
I have a fascination with tea based fragrances. Tea smells like comfort, leaves, chestnuts and smoke.
My favorite tea scent is Takashimaya's T. It is all kinds of smoke and a thick black tea. It is a hot piping cup of sinister and mystery. It would be the perfect fragrance to wear on the Orient Express or in a Poirot novel.
L'Artisan's Tea For Two is a a whole vat of honey with just a spot of tea. I think the brash honey note scares people off. It is a slightly difficult fragrance to wear.
Susanne Lang's Exotic Tea is a smoldering tea bag. This is a great fall scent. Full of dry leaves and the beginnings of a bonfire.
Barney's Route Du The is a green tea that borders on a cleaning solution. Not a fan.
The new Jo Malone Tea series are pretty fabulous.
The fragrances are Assam & Grapefruit, Earl Grey & Cucumber, Fresh Mint Leaf, Sweet Lemon and Sweet Milk. Sweet milk is my early favorite. It has a toasty almond note with anise and creamy milk.
