Thread: Spicy tea scent

  1. #1

    Default Spicy tea scent

    As it gets cooler I seem to crave tea notes more and more...The only thing is,the only tea scent I own is Omnia.Other spicy tea scents I need to try?

    Default Re: Spicy tea scent

    L'Artisan Tea for Two: smoky tea, honey and ginger
    But test first, it's not for everyone. It's been called "an ashtray".

    I love Omnia, too.

    Elizabeth Arden Spiced Tea.

    Try as I might, I cannot get rid of the smoked sausage in Tea for Two -- like the one that you put on a stick and burn over the campfire, although tea and spices are there as well.

    ineespenes, if youre not against having a puff of a fragrance geared towards gents, give burberry london for men a go on the back of your hand.

    Bvlgary Eau Parfumee Au The Rouge (Red Tea) can be up your alley too, it gets a bit too sweet though as spices disappear.

    But my first hunch was EA's Spiced Green Tea with Francis Kurkidjian as a nose. Give it a chance!

    I second the Tea for Two recommendation. Black tea in spades.

    Nothing quite as special as Tea for Two!

    But you might also enjoy: L'eau Rare Matale by Parfumerie Generale as well as Un Crime Exotique by Parfumerie Generale, also the new Tokyo by Kenzo, it has a wonderful spicy smokiness of a warm cup of tea, Fumarie Turque, and Bulgari Black too.

    Best of luck

    Another one I like a lot is CdG Leaves Series Tea. Not as spicy as "T42" but quite as smoky! The base is surprisingly soft and rosy.

    Notes: black tea, bergamot, rose petals, cedarwood and absolute maté

    This (Comme des Garcon) )is my recommendation as well. But not that icky Tea for Two from l'Artisan. I just can't stand it anymore. The CdG is my fav tea fragrances though. Also check out Barney's Route du Thé. Rubbery and flowery tea with a spicy backdrop. NOT as icky as some make it sound in the review section here.

    I vote for Bulgari Eau Parfumee Au The Rouge.
    I love the smell of real tea. It comes pretty close.
    Tea for Two was a bit too much honey and smoke for me.

    (If you can wear them)
    Ava Luxe Black Tea (formerly known as The Noir)
    Similar to L'Artisan Tea 4 Two but softer, sweeter / less smokily extreme. Definitely worth trying a sample.
    Favourite (Winter) Crazy Combos

    Tabu + Orange Blossom * Hermes Rouge + Bellodgia* Voleur du Roses+ Rose Ispahan * Rasa Extreme + Paris * Wood Coffee + Cafe Noir *

    What do you guys think of EA Green Tea? I got a coffret as a gift a few years back, and I still can't quite get into it; I'd love to hear some other perspectives.

    I had a mini of that for awhile. I didn't care for it as a fragrance for myself, but I thought it was a nice, refreshing scent with a fairly recognizable green tea note. I used it up fairly quickly as a room spray; it hides cigarette smoke remarkably well!
    Another belief of mine; that everyone else my age is an adult, whereas I am merely in disguise.

    I vote for L'Artisan Tea for Two. Wonderful, warm and soft - I just have a sample, and have it on my wish-list. I find it very comforting

    Try some of the other Bvlgaris. Like for example, Red Tea or Bvlgari Black.

    I enjoy green tea scents, but not EA's Green Tea. I find it too pop, if you understand where I'm coming from.

    Instead, I enjoy Bvlgari's The Vert and The Vert Extreme. I also enjoy Roger & Gallet's Shiso scent, Carthusia's Io Capri (with tea and fig), and L'Artisan's The Pour Une Ete (Jasmine Tea).
