    Default Fragrance that smells like tea?

    I know that everyone's going to jump in with Tea for Two, but is there any other fragrance that captures the feeling of tea, without the enormous price tag?

    Yang, Bvlgari PH are two that I can think of if you like tea. Neither one is overly expensive.

    Cross the gender barrier and check out:

    Elizabeth Arden Green Tea - citrus fresh summer staple
    The Body Shop Bergamot Cologne - not tea directly but loads of bergamot which is used to flavour Earl Grey tea.
    Elizabeth Arden Spiced Green Tea
    The Body Shop Lemon Tea
    Yves Rocher Ode a l'Amour - effervescent fruity with a distinct tea accord

    There are great suggestions here already. I want to add Annick Goutal's Duel though. Still pricy, yes, but not as pricey as Tea for Two. Duel can be had online.

    I'll second Jacques Fath Yang!

    This one drives my GF crazy. Great bottle too.

    Bulgari makes a few tea based fragrences.

    Au The Verte and Au The Verte Extrem are green tea based. Quite good, but also linear.

    Au The Blanc is white tea based with musc. Also very nice.

    And very recently they released au the Rouge based on Roiboos tea from South Africa. Another winner.

    I for some reason always get a very strong green tea note from Burberry London, I love it!

    Verino by Roberto Verino which is very under-rated til this day.

    To my nose L'Eau par Kenzo pour Homme by Kenzo (1999) smells quite strongly of Earl Grey Tea (black tea and bergamot)! When I smelled it for the first time I swore tea was one of it's core notes and what did I discover when I read it's olfactory description - not a mention of any sort of a tea! But I still get that lingering EGT-note from it...

    I'll third the Yang - motion carried!
    It's green tea, and very linear on me, but it has excellent longevity and sillage (at least on me - and my skin destroys frags quickly). If Bvlgari made a, "Eau de The Verte Concentree EXTREME", it would smell like Yang. This can be found cheaply online, and you won't smell it on anyone else (unless you're at a Basenoter's Conference)!

    It seems that Yang might be the one great tea scent that im looking for. Tea for Two might be little too dry. How does Yang compare to it?

    I dont find T42 dry in the slightest, it is specifically its milky wetness that makes it so unique. It may be toasty, but I wouldn't call it "dry".

    You might be right. Its been a while since a tested it. But on to Yang. Is there any other scents that might be compared to it?

    Thanks for all the great replies. I think i'll take a look at Yang. I'm looking for something subtle, would Yang fit the bill?

    Hmmm... you might want to read my post on the first page! I recommend all three Bulgari's!

    I agree with the suggestion of The Brun by Jean Charles Brosseau. The strongest tea around I reckon!

    Bulgari Omnia is another tea fragrance - masala.

    You might want to test Eau de The Vert by Roger et Gallet - a very nice and fresh green tea fragrance, fairly long-lasting. But the best - I think - is the aforementioned The Brun by Brosseau. It's like sticking you head into a fresh pot of Russian tea - smokey, spicy and very comforting. It's one of the best fragrances in recent years.

    Doesn't L'occitane also make a good tea fragrence?

    Where could I find The Brun? I checked my local market (ebay lol) but didn't come up with anything. Would it be at Sephora or Neiman Marcus?

    Yang? Subtle? Most definitely not!
    Maybe if you sprayed once and walked through the mist.
    It seems very strong to me - I only spray once or twice.
