Reviews of Philtre Ceylan

Cooling black tea with a minty aroma and a healthy dose of cumin that brings a dirty and interesting kick. Smelling up close, the cumin is dominating the blend for a good couple of hours and it can be too much for me, but from the distance the smell is nicer, the adding of cumin works well with the minty black tea.

Wow - this Atelier realy crosses over into niche territory in terms of quality, unique scent, and combination of notes. The card with the sample listed only ceylon tea, bergamot and spearmint from india. Forget the bergamot this is never going to be an earl-grey citrussy tea. Also, think about the Black Tea and Mint combination - how weird, and it doesn't go down the mint-tea route. This is a well oxidised strong black leaf tea combined with a menthol type mint note: The thought of it on paper turns my stomach, it don't sound right - but on my wrist it smells divine. Its one of the best Tea scents I've experienced. A realistic strong black tea note, bitter and dark - like smelling a container full of black leaf tea. I get some spices such as clove and cinnamon and some patchoulli earthiness. I think there must be something in a black tea accord that perfumers use that reminds me of clove as I get a real clove O-D from tea-for-two - the tea note here is much better IMO whereas tea-for-two never quite chimed with me. I am even treated to a tarry caramel dry down.

I will need to test further to ensure all the magic is not gone within the first hour, and it doesn't get too sweaty on my skin. But first impressions are very favorable. A dark scent, and quite off piste from the brand. A knock-out black tie masculine. My feeling is it could go under-appreciated due to getting crowded out by the more typical Atelier scents. Smells like something Comme des Garcons would release 80/100. Needs to be in the conversation when discussing top black tea scents. Brings to mind TFT, Bulgari man in Black. Murdocks black tea.

I get a very light licorice tea vibe with PC. Not bad, just not my style. 6.5/10

The opening is not bad but then the cumin kicks in and takes over completely.

I'm not getting a lot of tea from this but it's there. I do detect the woody notes and papyrus in the base just under all the cumin.

Projection is very good and seems to last all day.

Philtre Ceylan is a part of Atelier Cologne's Collection Orient which also includes Mimosa Indigo, Poivre Electrique, Tobacco Nuit and Encens Jinhae. Philtre Ceylan comes across as one of the most authentic renditions of black tea one has encountered in a while. It begins with an ethereal cardamom laced citrus that immediately transforms into an accord of black Ceylon tea. This is different from other black teas including Darjeeling, Assam and other flavoured black teas such as Earl Grey. The aroma is robust, slightly smoky, slightly sweet, dewy, and closer to that of brewed tea than dried tea leaves. The cardamom and a hint of cumin support this tea accord; however, spices are kept to an absolute minimum so that the tea is the focus, and the composition never veers into masala tea territory. This phase is long lasting and linear, till eventually the tea and spice notes diminish a bit as an enveloping, semi-sweet guaiac wood joins the other elements to add a nuance, and to form the final dry down of tea and woods.

Philtre Ceylan possesses good longevity on skin of about eight hours, and is discernible throughout before fading away towards the end. However, the sillage is also soft to moderate, though perceptible, and forms a soft cloud around the wearer. Philtre Ceylan is easily the standout among Atelier Cologne's Collection Orient, and a general highlight in its catalogue. While it is somewhat pricy for what it is, it also fills a gap given the relative dearth of quality fragrances focussing on black tea. Anyone missing Coeur de Vetiver Sacre's brilliant interpretation of tea will be advised to consider Philtre Ceylan. However, personally one finds Coeur de Vetiver Sacre to be best reserved for summers, while Philtre Ceylan is an attractive proposition for an autumnal scent.

3.5/5
