    Default Tea based Scents - Greatest hits Vol. 1

    Im finding utmost comfort and feel very relaxed around Tea based scents like the Bulgari PH and also their cologne series...mainly green tea.....i also enjoyed Elizabeth Arden Green Tea and Spiced green tea on my wife...

    could anyone suggest nicely blended Green tea scents...preferably wet like bulgari PH (soir would be dry in reference)..i wouldnt mind powdery scents too....i have tried most of the Bulgari series...need to see if there is any other house which has done justice to the Tea note...

    P.S. I would prefer scents with a dominant Tea note...

    Try Tommy Girl by Tommy Hilfiger. Marketed to women, I know...but the tea note is subtle and brilliant. Can be worn by a man.

    It's pretty hard to come by in our area but sample Carthusia Mediterraneo... lovely interplay between lemon and green tea notes, definitely of the "wet" type as you mention.

    And if smoky black tea is what you want, then apart from the L'Artisan mentioned above.. you can also try (No. 318) Sensuelle by Memoire Liquide ...dense smoky black tea on a luscious sandalwood base...it's addictive like crack.. I think it's marketed towards women but I say it's unisex... can easily be worn by a man.

    One of the finest black tea-based scents is Versace Black Jeans: it adds a powdery warmth that is quite unique.

    For a dirty black tea scent I really like Jean-Charles Brosseau's The Brun.

    You should find both of them reasonably priced on-line.

    To my nose, Hermes Hermessence Osmanthe Yunnan is a dry black tea scent--if I interpret correctly by dry you mean "unbrewed" The "yunnan" does smell a bit leathery to me, though.

    Omnia is another great one from Bulgari, and their red tea perfume is what started my whole Basenotes journey.

    I recently found a bottle of Guerlain's Aroma Allegoria Vitalisant -- the box refers to the "invigorating notes of tea and saffron." I foresee wearing it quite a bit this summer!

    I love Bulgari's white tea fragrance line myself. There are lots of body products to go with it & unisex, as well. 2nd favorite is their rubios tea scent. *waves to tang*
    Now if I can find one that smells like Russian Caravan tea, I'll be "set".

    Tea for two is a great suggestion while I wouldn't waste time around The pour un été.
    Yerbamate is another good suggestion though it has mate and not maybe exactly what you're looking for tea.
    I'm not a great tea based scents since I find them all sweetened up and related to sugary light teas while I prefer tea to be black and quite dry. If you like your tea with this mood then try the only tea frag I really dig: Comme des Garcons Serie 1 Leaves: TEA. in a word stunning imo.

    L'Artisan and Bulgari are great suggestions but I would be very careful of Yang - it's terribly sweet and a bit synthetic. Also bear in mind that none of these possess great longevity (probably average, if you're lucky).

    It's more dirty and musky to me.

    Hey,
    I went through a long infatuation with tea fragrances, and for a while wore them almost exclusively.
    My favorites?
    Green Tea by Rodger and Gallet - An underrated gem. Lovely green tea and lemon scent. (PM me if you want a sample)
    I got tired of Yang very quickly and swapped it. Synthetic and too sicly sweet is correct, as noted above.
    Tea for Two is my favorite black tea (with chai spices, honey, and vanilla)- it deserves the awesome reputation it has.
    I love Russian Caravan Tea by CB I hate Perfumes, but wish it lasted longer.
    The Bvlgari's are nice, but perfumey in a way I don't like (aldehydes?)
    Yerbamate is strange and wonderful, but I never end up wearing it.

    Enjoy the research.

    Lothantique Green Tea has similarities to Sandalo The by Bois 1920 IMO.
    I think it is 50 ml for 34$.
    Lothantique Patchouly is also very nice.

    I ran across this line several years ago at a local boutique carying interior stuff and fine toiletries such as Diptyque, and Acqua di Parma.

    This is a smooth, velvety green tea with ginger and patchouli. Really nice.

    Really good to know. Tommy Girl has been on my "to try" list. About 8 years ago I asked a lady what she was wearing as it reminded me of a certain orchid I'd bought in bloom (small yellow cattleya) with this unusual beautiful intoxicating scent. She told me it was TG. I have no illusions that TG smells exactly like that orchid but I'd sure like to think so - and I remember wishing TG could be worn by a man as well!

    That's easy.

    1. Dump the girl's ones.

    2. Read the reviews in the directory for the remainder and see,
    a. if they indeed have tea notes listed against them, and if not, check OsMoz and see if they list tea notes against them - rule them out if they don't (Black Jeans is great, but I don't get tea out of it), and
    b. which have the word "masculine" come up a lot in them - that way you get twice the bang for your money, tea & masculine, unless you're really after a unisex scent.

    I mentioned Yang above, and I do think it one of the best, but I also agree with others who got sick of it - which isn't a big deal if you have lots of scents that you rotate. My wife started wearing the female equivalent Yin so much last summer (because she was getting so many compliments and enquiries as to what she was wearing) that I had to beg her to please stop wearing it around me.

    Also, unless you already have it, it's a mistake dropping Bvlgari Black off the list. But if you've smelled it and didn't like it, you can drop Duel off the list, as they both have that tea-that-smells-like-rubber note.

    Why would he dump the women's scents? Just because the companies declare a gender doesn't mean he won't like them.

    I say look at the list of notes and see which one appeals to you the most that way (not that the notes mean anything until you smell them). I definitely agree with reading the reviews though...both on BN and the perfume blogs.

    Because wearing women's scents sends an unambiguous message to most women and to many males. The message is,
    " I am a male - I have a poor sense of smell - I cannot tell a women's scent from a man's scent."

    Much better to send the message,
    " Male here/in the room. This male is sophisticated/nice smelling/discerning/ alpha/ fresh/ hungry/ not cheap and stingy etc...." depending on which scent is worn.

    Besides, if he went for a women's scent, he'd go for the best - Yin - then I'd shudder when I thought about it, the way I shudder when I think of my wife wearing it.

    I've got Bvlgari PH but find it kind of light and lacking in sillage, though still classy and refined. Good for when you want subtlety for some reason, like on a plane. My favourite is Bvlgari Blv, since I'm a sucker for ambery fougere scents in general, and this ginger one in particular. The Blv Notte one is good too, but I prefer the plain Blv.

    I also like the way Bvlgari get all their Vs and Us confused.

    Much better to send the message,

    Besides, if he went for a women's scent, he'd go for the best - Yin - then I'd shudder when I thought about it, the way I shudder when I think of my wife wearing it.

    Oh wait, I can - did you ever think that some people wear scents for themselves and not to woo women? So stupid...
    Well, I'm sure that you sincerely believe what you've written.
    Wear all the girly scents you wish, wear anything feminine that you like - it's of no concern to me.
    If you have no interest in looking and smelling good amongst women, well no one says you are obliged to try.

    The aim in this forum is to try give good general advice.
    I do not consider your advice that men should give serious consideration to wearing women's scents to be good general advice.
