    For a nice black tea scent, try Bulgari Soir. Green tea, maybe 212 Men by Herrera.

    Bulgari PH is nice and should be readily available for under $50.

    I dont know the $ price, but Bulgari's Eau Perfumée au Thé Vert Extreme is my favourite tea scent.

    +10, the only reason why i do not wear it is because i find it too feminine. If that is no concern, then blind buy it, its perfect.

    As others have mentioned, Gucci Pour Homme II is a good one. I would also recommend Bulgari Eau Parfumee Au The Rouge, which smells more of tea than Bulgari's other two in that particular lineup -- Blanc and Vert. You can get a 100ml bottle for around $30.

    Votes for Gucci II and L'Occitane also.

    You could also try Jean Brousseau Thé Brun

    + a bunch more for Gucci pH II. Careful though, because sillage is very weak.

    one more vote for Gucci PH II , great tea fragrance and very different from all designers fragrances out there, I like it better that Issey (any of the tea loaded versions)

    Thanks guys for all the suggestions. I guess I'll go with Gucci PH II.
    My questions are:
    Is it too feminine as one person stated?
    Is the pimento to much?

    Look into Azzaro Now Men. It's a wonderful cardamom/chai tea, with a velvety smooth floral texture, a green violet leaf note, and a nice dose of suede in the base. Absolutely excellent. Turin gave it 4 stars.
    ***For sale:

    Iris Pallida 50ml

    Ungaro I 75ml

    and more!

    Gucci PH II is the perfect mens tea fragrance - especially for under $50. Feminine? - No! Pimento too much? - No! The bottle design is not my cup of tea, but the fragrance is fantastic for tea - not too dark, not too light -brewed just right.

    I don't think it's feminine at all. A fragrance that emphasizes on a tea note, or tea based, may seem more delicate. But, feminine? No way. I also don't pick up any pimento in it. I get like a blueberry/grape tea for the most part. Excellent fragrance.

    Agreed!

    Actually I like the Bvlgari suggestions as well, and if you're not in a rush, you might just try to sample as many from the Bvlgari Tea scent range, especially the Men's and Unisex ones (I prefer them to the ladies's, nothing about gender rigidity, just preference this time). I'm personally torn between Bvlgari Pour Homme and Gucci Pour Homme II. They're both really good, but they're both very different as well. I think I prefer Gucci Pour Homme II a little bit more, because it smells more interesting to me, but both are very worth owning, and they smell fantastic.
